Blair Gable is an independent photojournalist supplying photo work to Reuters, MacLeans magazine, Globe and Mail, and many other national and international magazines, newspapers and agencies. Blair has photographed Obama, Princess Kate, the Queen, Stephen Harper, Ottawa Senators and the Toronto Blue Jays.
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:
“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.”
“Relaxed, to the point, critical, informative.”
“Great workshop – pushed me out of my comfort zone and forced me to use new techniques.”
“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.
The next session of this workshop will have a slightly different format than the first – only three spots remain at time of writing.
Thanks to everyone who came out!
