Need Light? Speedlite!' Tour with Bob Davis and Stephen Eastwood
Speedlites are the perfect lighting solution for any type of shoot. These small strobes can be used to recreate any natural or studio light without taking up too much of your shooting space or time. Fashion photographer Stephen Eastwood, and wedding photographer Bob Davis, are leading a hands-on workshop on the ‘Need Light? Speedlite!’ tour to teach how they’re able to run high-end studios using just speedlites.

PPSNYS members receive a $10 discount on the daytime workshop which will be in New York City on May 22nd. The workshop will include shooting time with four models, time to try out new photo gear, and a free ProPic account to host your photography.

    "I just went to my first meeting tonight as a member! Really see that GRPP is worth joining and meeting these great people face to face and not just chatting on Facebook! I have been in business for over 10 years and never realized that surrounding yourself with people who all want to be the best they can be and support each other in getting there could feel so good! It's like joining a big family! I felt so motivated to improve my skills as a photographer and as a business woman. The members were so friendly, open and welcoming! I can't wait to go to the next meeting! "

  • Michael LaRose, Michael LaRose Photography, Clifton Park

    “PPSNYS Workshops are simply the best educational value there is. I learn, exchange ideas with colleagues and then look forward to the next opportunity to do it again.”

  • Herb Jones, (20-Year-Member) Herb Jones Photography, Avon, NY
