Shooting to Print with Joel Grimes
123 Paularino Avenue
Costa Mesa, California 92626
Join Joel Grimes for a two-day workshop as he takes you through how he has created some of his iconic images. Joel will be showing you his complete input to output workflow. He will start off by showing you how to Master the Light by taking the mystery out of working with strobe lights and modifiers. From the Rembrandt Cross Light Masters to Joel’s Edgy Gritty Sports images, learn how to recreate any lighting technique on the planet. All without ever touching a light meter, having to calculate lighting ratios or using those annoying lighting diagrams.
Attendees will get a chance to practice their newly learned techniques with live professional models during the hands on portion, in both a studio environment and outdoor scenario. Gain the confidence to use strobe lighting and take your artistic photographic vision to the next level. Joel will also do a demo using ultra wide aperture lenses with both High-Speed Sync and Neutral Density Filters.
On day two Joel will give his complete workflow instruction from paper selection, to monitor calibration and paper profiling, to printing the final image. While printing can be daunting, Joel and Canon will demystify the input to output solutions to creating a perfect large format print. Attendees will witness Joel creating a final 60-inch masterpiece.
Joel will send the attendees off with an inspirational session about now to thrive in the marketplace and make a living with your passion of photography. Joel will also talk about being an Artist and how to brand yourself in a world with an over abundance of competition.
Taking their newly learned skills, attendees will post-process the images they captured during the workshop preparing them for output. Joel Grimes and Canon Printing Expert, Arthur Vandover, will be walking around providing 1:1 coaching to attendees. At the end of the workshop, all attendees will receive a print of their work.

*Expert instruction and support from Joel Grimes and Canon Live Learning Team who will help you in both the field and the classroom.
