Please join Massachusetts based Photographer Walter van Dusen, M.Photog.Cr., CPP as he demonstrates the relevance of continuous lighting, mirrorless cameras and why he captures wirelessly to his computer. Walter will share his complete lighting system showing you how to set up the lights and adjust them for each subject. The workshop begins with sharing which lights he selects for his on-location portraiture, which mirrorless camera he uses and why, then live capture of several portraits followed by answering your questions. Walter is very high energy and will pack a lot of content into this one-hour, virtual, hands-on workshop.
: Photography has been a passion of Walter’s since high school. While stationed onboard a fast attack submarine, he graduated from periscope photography school at the top of his class. Fortunate to visit many countries, his camera is always on his person. Walter’s daughter, Hannah, was born in 1996 and, of course, he became a “Dad with a camera”. In 1997, Walter realized he wanted to pursue his dream of becoming a professional photographer. It was then that Walter began attending photography school, workshops, seminars, mentoring sessions, and assisted other photographers to gain as much knowledge and experience as possible. He fell in love with portraiture early in his professional career, continues to educate himself and strives to perfect his craft every day. Walter has set a goal for himself: go beyond flat light and add more dimension to each portrait. Achieving this goal results in a confident and powerful portrayal of each subject.
Walter is a Four-Time Winner of Connecticut Photographer of the Year, two-time Connecticut and New England Best in Show Wedding Album, has multiple Professional Photographers of America Loan Collection Prints, the recipient of five Connecticut and New England Court of Honor Awards, the recipient of 6 Kodak Gallery Award Wedding Images, was awarded two Fuji Masterpieces for Prints awards and most recently earned second-highest print case at the Massachusetts Professional Photographers Annual Convention along with several awards. Walter is also the founder of Mystic Seminars, an annual photography conference held from 2005 through 2019. Walter is now pursuing his portrait and corporate headshot photography in the Boston area along with teaching about lighting and workflow.
