Two of the industry’s most impactful photographers are coming together on September 12 - 15 to present Shooting Stars, a preeminent photography workshop for those creative photographers that want to up their game. Workshop hosts, Russ Harrington and Tony Corbell have photographed well over a thousand of the most recognizable people on the planet. And now they want to share their vast knowledge and insight with you at Tony’s incredible new studio in Muskogee, Oklahoma.
Russ Harrington is the go-to guy for musicians and celebrities who want to make an impact. He’s photographed some of the most recognizable faces in the music industry, producing over 700 album covers for stars like Reba McEntire, Loretta Lynn, Alan Jackson, and many more. Now he’s ready to share what he’s learned with you.
Tony Corbell is one of the most sought after educators in the photographic world. He’s the author 3 popular photo books and is featured in more than 25 books and is recognized as the expert on photographic lighting. Who else can say they have photographed three U.S. presidents and over 140 world leaders.
Tony and Russ are two of the best in the world of photography and are equally known for the love and passion for their craft, their attention to detail in the work, and the intense desire to share what they know. These two industry icons will share the spotlight in a wonderful city known for its musical heritage and home to Corbell’s new beautiful studio, Muskogee, Oklahoma.
You don’t have to photograph A-List celebrities or world leaders like Russ and Tony. By the end of the workshop, you’ll know how to make your client look and feel like a rock star!
For three days Russ and Tony share their collective knowledge about location lighting, lighting tools, and lighting techniques. Join in as they offer unique shooting possibilities with musicians for models in a most unique and inspiring setting. This musician and artist-centered workshop will include the true visual use of light, location, and the proper use of each in numerous situations as well as the psychology of working with recognizable faces and celebrities.
Shooting people for the purpose of publicity, album covers, “merch” promotions and advertising is the focus of this event and will include numerous “aha” moments from each of these two photographers. The workshop will take us to lots of locations and settings throughout the town’s historic sites from studios, to stages, to the renowned Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame. We’ll attend live performances in the evenings as well.
Tony and Russ will also discuss working as a team with assistants, hair and makeup folks and the many ways in which you can make your clients never want to work with any other photographers again.
Each morning the workshop will begin with a lecture, image review from the day before and discussions on the topics of the day. After lunch we will either venture out to specific location for photographing models/musicians live or begin setting up the studio for sessions indoors. There will be an equal amount of time spent on location and studio as we work to provide the client with the images best suited for their own needs.
