The demands of his work have forced him to light quickly, effectively with simple equipment. We’re lucky to have his expertise available for a photo class in Ottawa! See some of the top student work, below:

Participant’s comments:

“Friendly. Always willing to answer questions. In line with what I have come to expect from Harry(‘s workshops).”

“Very helpful. I really got to see how Blair sees light and shadows. Worth time/money. Very good.”

Blair was a very good teacher. I did not really sign up for the technical content. I was mostly interested in the image making aspects of location portraiture, and Blair did not disappoint. There was very strong content about what makes a compelling image. My eyes have been opened to some new possibilities and ideas.

The ideal participant is a photographer who wants an introduction or review of the possibilities of creative lighting using off camera flash.
