Let’s face it– there is a LOT of photography education out there to be had. Some of it’s great. Some of it’s good. Then some of it– a lot of it, unfortunately– is simply sub-par and not worth your time. Some of the best, though, is currently coming from a company you may not have heard of. Founded by former Monte Zucker assistant Jeff Medford, MZed (formerly Monte Zucker Photographic Education) is bringing together some of the biggest names in photography, in an effort to provide some of the best photographic education available– in person or online.
Last Friday, I had the opportunity to attend the Need Light? Speedlite! Tour in Toronto, Canada.
The Need Light? Speedlite! Tour is presented by MZed – Education for Creatives and is traveling to 32 cities across the United States between now and the end of May (with one more stop in Canada in Vancouver) – click here for dates.
The tour is a full day workshop ($99) that focuses on portrait lighting with speedlites with instructors Stephen Eastwood and Bob Davis. At the end of the day, participants have the opportunity to apply the techniques they have learned to photograph live models with their own cameras.
There is also an evening hands on master class ($279 with the daytime workshop) that includes hands on instruction from Stephen and Bob.
