Commercial Photography Tips on the HasselbladBron Blog

As a photography educator it's always fun to share affordable tips and tricks to help hobbiest and up-and-coming photographers get great photos. Whether its using bits and pieces from Home Depot to assemble cheap lighting modifiers, or MacGyver style repurposing of overlooked household items. But as a commercial photographer I utilize everything from five dollar pieces of foam core for reflectors, all the way up to sophisticated lighting with parabolic umbrellas that are larger than AND more expensive more than most peoples cars.

So I'm really excited this year to be working with Hasselblad and Broncolor to bring you more of the high-end perspective of my commercial career. I'll be collaborating with them share the advantages of using the fastest and most advanced lighting systems in the industry, as well as the unique images that can be achieved when working with precision lighting modifiers. Get ready for a year of cool photos, fancy gear, and tons of behind the scenes images and lighting diagrams!

Here are two recent articles I wrote on Fashion and Beauty photography. With the support of this collaboration all of the information and education is FREE to photographers everywhere and I even through in my camera settings ;)

Enjoy the photos and happy shooting!
