My workshops involve real teaching of the methods I employ, and this is a technical and intensive workshop… you will be given the training needed to produce work at a very high level. You will be receiving personal, detailed hands-on (literally!) instruction on proper light painting (not light pointing), and my post production process. You will actually learn the subtleties of lighting, using simple and inexpensive lighting tools, and the nuances of using layers and masking in Photoshop to create powerful images! The techniques you will be learning are simply not taught anywhere else.

I’ve been using light painting as my main method of lighting for 26 years.

My co-instructor, John Corcoran, will be bringing a lot of experience to the workshop. He has worked as a professional photographer for over 35 years, and has been light painting for over 20 of those years.

He shoots wonderful floral images and portraits, all using light painting. You can see some of John’s images HERE.


“The workshop was absolutely fantastic.  The unique and artistic techniques we were taught enabled us to make stunning, one of a kind images.  Learning to think, see and create differently was value far beyond the cost of the workshop.  I can’t imagine a more exciting and rewarding experience.”
– Butch Welch, Michigan, Group Workshop

“I enrolled in Harold Ross’s workshop after reading an interview on They called him, “Master of Light Painting.”  A Google search of his still life images left no doubt.  Harold’s work is high Art!  However, what convinced me to take his workshop were the student examples on Harold’s blog. Simply amazing! The possibility of achieving similar results was irresistible. I found the 3-day experience intense, long, fun, frustrating, exciting, and in the end, hugely satisfying. The instruction is well organized with plenty of examples and demonstrations. With only four students in the workshop, we received constant attention. I left with the best photo of my life; confident I can continue my own light painting.  The workshop exceeded all expectations.  Oh yes, Harold’s wife Vera was the perfect host keeping us supplied with snacks, drinks, sandwiches, and lots of coffee.”
– Jerry Starbuck, Virginia, Group Workshop

“Harold Ross is a master at light painting. In this amazing workshop, the lines between photography and painting are blurred. This is an intense and information packed hands-on workshop but made easy with Harold’s and co-instructor John Corcoran’s relaxed and pleasant style. Their attention to detail is evident in all aspects from beginning to end. To top it off the hospitality of Vera Ross makes one feel quite welcome. I am grateful to have had this experience.”
– Max Acra, PA, Group Workshop
