This class is designed to help any photographer or videographer that is ready to take the next step in their creative skillset and take them one step further. Filters are a must have in any camera bag with their brilliance to up your game and allow you to shoot in any scenario, whenever you want. Wether its a close focusing issue or you want to bring out a bit more saturation and texture in a landscape- a filter is the best solution.

Allow me to help you develop your understanding of how you could better incorporate filters into your portfolio to make you a better artist. Once we unravel the secrets to using filters, you now have the possibilities to go above and beyond in your photos. After this class you will begin to see that filters aren't just a random accessory but a necessary tool in your artistry.

Be creative, daring and take great photos!

For this photo, I used a soft focus filter to give it a misty haze.

Nicely done. Clear, concise and easy to understand. One suggestion: maybe shoe examples of shots with all the specialty filters.

Lifestyle & Travel Photographer

A love of film is a given when beginning to look at a career in the industry. It was a given when I was named after Indiana Jones as well but that's a whole other story. The desire to work in the industry hit me like a truck watching Malick's Tree of Life

I entered the camera department because I couldn't do it. When I entered it, I didn't know where to begin. I had no knowledge of how to work a camera or the principles behind it. However, I knew I wanted to learn how to create the images we see on screen and fall in love with. However, it was important not just to have a vision but be able to execute it. Using the technical, practical, and creative application of camera, lighting and collaboration to realize a vision.

My passion and enthusiasm for the camera department has led me to travel over the past three years trying to learn all I can about the camera department and its industry. I have been working with a variety of film companies (shoutout to my Vantage family) being trained in optics, camera and their respective accessories. Learning lighting and becoming a voyeur on some fantastic mentor's sets (sending love to David Miller and Alexander Gruszynski) and finally, freelance assisting, operating and DPing on short films and a few documentary projects overseas.
