Join Bobbi Lane and Lee Varis to explore the world of Hollywood glamour, and learn the photographic style of George Hurrell. Bobbi & Lee will teach you how to achieve the look of the classic Hollywood glamour images of the 1930’s & 40’s using traditional and modern lighting tools and techniques.

George Hurrell rented Bobbi Lane’s studio for the last 10 years of his life, and this provided Bobbi with an unprecedented opportunity to learn from the master himself—today Bobbi is able to share this knowledge with the participants in a weekend intensive photography workshop…

Work with experience models to re-create the glamour photography of a bygone era! Participants have hands-on experience on the set with personal guidance from Bobbi & Lee to guarantee success…

Work with old fashioned “hot” lights, as well as modern studio flash to get the highly stylized look of classic Hollywood. Participants work with several models in different setups over the two shooting days, Saturday and Sunday.

Male and female models with period appropriate wardrobe help to re-create the look of the 30’s and 40’s. Bobbi & Lee teach and demonstrate the lighting fundamentals that are critical to achieving the dramatic look of the classic Hollywood glamour style…

Learn to control the light to craft the desired look, and see how this style can be applied to more contemporary imagery as well.
