For years people asked if they could shoot with me. Now you can join me in a series of hands-on workshops on studio and infrared photography where you’ll see how I work and the cameras and lenses I use. You’ll learn to use techniques I’ve written about in magazines and books. During these informal but hands-on sessions you can ask questions and shoot photographs for your portfolio, for a fully interactive experience.

Boudoir & Glamour Photography Workshop. Coming in August, 2015.

pam.boudoir.wkshpConducted by Cliff Lawson and Joe Farace. This four-hour workshop is limited to a maximum of ten photographers and will held in a studio located near I-25 and Arapahoe Road. It will kick off with a discussion of the concepts of boudoir & glamour photography, then move into demonstrations on how to use first speedlights and then inexpensive studio lights to create boudoir and glamour images in the studio—even if that studio is your basement. And yes, everybody gets to shoot each of the lighting setups that we demonstrate.

The fee is $99 or $125 with a model release. Handouts will be provided and a signed copy of Joe’s book “Posing for Portrait & Glamour Photography” will be given as a door prize. There will be more details announced as we get closer to the date. Click Contact link and let us know if you’re interested.


Infrared at the Lake. Starting in July, 2015. At Bingham Lake in Parker, Colorado. A 90-minute hand-on workshop on making digital infrared images with your own cameras. We’ll kick off with a brief discussion of capture options, then we’ll walk around the lake and make IR photographs. You’ll get to see and use different kinds of filters for making  infrared images with your own camera. I’ll also demonstrate a comparison of images made using a IR-converted. Please bring your camera—SLR or mirrorless— and a tripod because some of the filters will produce really slow shutter speeds. Fee is $75. Check this page for specific dates. If you have any question, click the Contact page and ask.
