Got a Light? | Private Lighting Workshop

June 2, 2009

Hello readers,

If you arrived on this post, then you have been invited to a private workshop hosted at Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel in Orange County (OC). I got an Ocean View Luxurious Suite for two nights and was entertained with the idea of hosting a lighting workshop.

Fortunately, Lan Bui, Vu Bui (The Bui Brothers) and Doug (Furious Photographers) were all free to help!
It’s going to be quite interesting to have four lighting experts with potentially separate opinions for “good lighting.”

Check out the room from Ritz Carlton (Laguna Niguel) –

I am not going to tell you how much I actually paid for the room for it will send another series of pangs to my heart/wallet, but it’s over $3,000.  We have a super nice location, so might as well make the most of it, right?  Workshop.

The styles are different [in a good way], but concepts and skillsets are solid.

Cost: $50 – uh yeah, no brainer – I assure you that there will be no workshop at this price especially from industry leaders teaching it.  Or I challenge someone to do so!

$50 | First Come First Served | Limited Seats

Add to Cart I pay $3000 for room, you pay $50 = good deal.

The fee is only to pay for model, makeup, clothes, etc.  I will pay for the room, so that’s one less thing to worry about.  The goal is to get this lighting project started.  Limited seats!


Furious Photographers

P.S. We might have an after party, so yeah…not all will get to stay – based on number of registrant.
