Nevada Museum of Art Photography Class

The Environmental Portrait: Shooting on Location

Explore portrait photography techniques for shooting on location (as opposed to in a studio setting). Students will work with live models and will experiment with light, including natural and artificial, posing, site selection, permissions and setting a mood within the photographic environment. NOTE: Classes are taught off site at Jeff Ross' Studio and at selected locations (registered students will be given location list).

Ross has been a commercial, editorial and fine art photographer since 1981. Having studied at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, he apprenticed under some of the leading photographers in Los Angeles, CA. Based in Reno since 1984, Ross now uses the latest in digital technologies. In 2012, he received a TELLY Award for KNPB’s “The Work of Art,” a program that was also nominated for a regional EMMY.
