Cliff Mautner's Lighting and cliff mautner workshopkillset Workshop

Last week, I attended Cliff Mautner's Lighting and Skill-set Workshop in NJ. I write "Workshop" because that was what it was called. In reality, it was so much more. It has taken me a week to digest all that I learned and process how I want to apply it. 

First, Cliff and his studio assistant Heather were the most humble and welcoming people I have met in this industry. Their willingness to teach and help us understand what they do made me feel extremely comfortable and hopeful. Cliff was more than willing to answer all of our questions. He encouraged it! I thought he would just be going over lighting and photo techniques, which of course that was included, however he answered pretty much anything we asked. He even told us when he didn't have the answer. What more can you ask for? Well, bacon, definitely ask for the bacon! (you will understand when you take the class!)

There were also another 18 amazing photographers who attended as well. Each person was there for their own reasons, but it was incredible that all our separate paths came together in this one class! It was such an honor shooting alongside some of the most exquisite people I have ever had the pleasure meeting. As much as we all came to learn from Cliff, we also learned so much from each other. 

I can go on and on, but I want to thank Cliff for such an amazing opportunity!  No matter where you are in your career, this workshop is inspiring! I feel I can take what I have learned and make my business soar higher than ever! I needed a spark and this was everything, and more, to helping me achieve that!
