Environmental Portraits: Whisky Sommelier

Environmental portraits are a highly sought after, yet challenging genre of photography that require you, the photographer, to think on your feet. Often, you don’t really know who you’ll be photographing, what the location looks like or what the lighting will be, and you have to overcome each of these challenges as you encounter them.

In this series of videos Karl teaches you how to deal with these difficult situations, showing you a number of scenarios where he has to overcome these challenges. These classes will equip you with the knowledge to confidently deal with a multitude of difficulties so that you can deliver high-quality images that your clients will be happy with.

Often when it comes to environmental portraits, there are times when the subject you’re photographing doesn’t have a lot of time to stand and pose. This was exactly the case for this shoot, where Karl photographed a very busy whisky sommelier. You’ll find out how to deal with difficult time constraints and also how to work in small spaces with lots of reflective surfaces.

NOTE: These classes are scheduled for release over the next few months.
