Chicago photographer John Gress is holding a two day lighting workshop in Oakland May 18-19.  He loves exploring lighting, and new techniques to refine his craft. But what he loves equally, is empowering photographers as they build confidence in themselves and their skills.

PPA Magazine called Gress “one of  the nation’s foremost experts on lighting.”


I’m super excited to be assisting him on this workshop. If you’re looking to truly step up your portrait lighting here is a great opportunity to do just that
