Evening Presentation:

Lights, Camera, Action, 1-2-3!   Creative Lighting Workshop with Claude Jodoin

After a quick, 15-minute slideshow of many of Claude’s images, created with various lighting techniques, attendees will have 2 hours to capture their own images. Claude will function as their personal lighting technician, for as many video lighting setups as possible. Working in a studio environment, you will have the opportunity to record your own Camera images, with a live model.

What to bring: Full Frame or small sensor Camera with 70-200 f/2.8 zoom, 85, 100, or 135mm prime portrait lenses (or equivalent), an Expo Disc and/or incident light meter, and a laptop computer to take notes and look and to upload your images when it’s not your turn to shoot. We also encourage the use of cell phone images of each setup so you can recall them for later setups in your own studios.


Ever since he first entered a Black and White darkroom in a Jr. High School Science class, Claude wanted to gain more and more knowledge about photography. He began his Pro career as an Industrial Photographer who did weddings on the side.  This led to becoming Technical Editor of PPA’s Professional Photographer Magazine and subsequently, the same position at Rangefinder/WPPI speaking at their National Conference in Las Vegas annually. As opening speaker in 2008 Claude presented a Lighting Program to over 1,000 Photographers.

An early adopter Digital Imaging (1986 to be exact), he later became involved as a Foveon Mentor and Field tester for their Engineering Department, which led to the development of the X3 Sensor technology, now owned by Sigma, maker of the world’s best lenses.

Besides writing dozens of magazine articles, Claude has presented programs and workshop to various National and State conventions, as well as serving as consultant to Kodak, various, labs, and more importantly, many successful studios across the USA. His lighting programs always pack an abundance of useful information, and his workshops allow the attendees some unique opportunities for learning in a memorable way.
