Limited Capacity seats available

Nicole is a Canon shooter and Canon is the host of this Golden Hour Shooting Experience program.  

Off-camera lighting provides a photographer with many additional options with which to create a range of images. Join pet photographer Nicole Begley to learn about different types of off-camera lighting as well as the basics of how to balance ambient lighting with off-camera lighting. Not only will this course cover working with a strobe and beauty dish to create dramatic images during the Golden Hour, but it will also incorporate photographing pets, through the use of live dogs, using both off-camera and natural lighting techniques. *Attendees of this session will need to sign an animal handling release form.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn different off-camera lighting options available for pet work.
2. Work with natural light on a pet photography session during golden hour.
3. Work with off-camera lighting during a pet photography session during golden hour.

River Walk:
This Golden Hour Shooting Experience will take place at the San Antonio River Walk (just a short walk from the Marriott Rivercenter). The San Antonio River Walk is a network of walkways along the banks of the San Antonio River, one story beneath the streets of Downtown San Antonio. The River Walk winds and loops under bridges, is flanked by two parallel sidewalks lined with restaurants and shops, and connects the major tourist sites including the Alamo, Rivercenter Mall and La Villita.

There are some great shooting spaces along the River Walk within easy walking distance of the Marriott Rivercenter. While the River Walk may feel narrow close to the hotel, as you move away from the hotel (in the direction of the Convention Center), you’ll find that space opens up quite a bit. And, of course, along the way you’ll find interesting details worth photographing. As you walk along the water, you’ll see a few areas up off of the water (next to hotels) that give you a bit of a “courtyard” feel. As you head to the Convention Center (the access point on the river), you’ll find a lot of space — both covered and uncovered — by the water.
