Jeff Ross Teaches Studio Photography: Portraiture Through Nevada Museum of Art

Aspiring photographers get a chance to explore portrait photography in a professional studio environment from award-winning photographer Jeff Ross through the Nevada Museum of Art.


Taught at Ross’ studio, the Studio Photography: Portraiture class allows students to work with live models and experiment with various qualities of light, including natural and artificial, framing and composition and variations in the photographic environment. Students examine the work of photographers such as Arnold Newman, Karsh, Platon and others. Participants can sign up through the Nevada Museum of Art at
