“I used to dream about learning Harold’s method, but now I am living that dream. I really enjoyed and learned a lot from my remote workshop with him, the downside was I didn’t get to meet him both in person and didn’t taste Harold’s famous Cafe Americano, lol. Hopefully I can take an actual workshop/refresher course with Harold in the future, possibly a 2-on-1 with my nephew from the Philippines.
I felt really fortunate to learn Harold’s method. It’s really hard to put a price tag on the things that I learned from him, and on top of that, we had valuable conversations about art and about life. I would always consider him as generous, genuine and a genius! Harold not only placed me on the path of precision, but also perfection and mastery.”

I have been teaching my workshop online for several years now, but I never really advertised it because my work schedule was already pretty full, and so, it was reserved for people abroad who couldn’t travel here for various reasons.

That said, I feel very fortunate and honored that I have had many students who were able to travel here from abroad. Students have travelled here to attend my workshop from India, Switzerland, Australia, England, Ireland, Hong Kong, Mexico, Brazil, and Canada!  :-)

Due to the Coronavirus situation, however, I’ve been teaching online to several students that were originally signed up for in-person workshops, but were unable to attend due to the Covid travel restrictions in place. The remote teaching has worked out so welI that I’ve decided to offer it to anyone who is interested!

(This workshop is designed to teach Light Painting the Still Life in a fine art setting. If you are interested in applying my process in a commercial environment (commercial product photography or food photography) then you will have to let us know ahead of time, as that demands a longer and more intensive workshop. Please contact us for pricing and information at harold@rossstudio.com if you are interested in a Commercial Workshop.)

Essentially, the Remote Workshop is the Still Life One-on-One workshop outlined on this blog HERE, except that you don’t have to travel here, and it would be taught in many stages over time, as opposed to three days of intense learning.

It is taught using the free ZOOM platform, which allows us to share screens easily, and has a very good video feed. 

Some people actually like the spread-out nature of the Remote Workshop (some people have trouble with the enormous amount of information conveyed in 3 days!). It certainly is more flexible, as we can meet online for sessions that can be any length of time, and therefore the number of sessions can also vary.

Basically, the course is patterned exactly as the “normal” in-person workshops, but it is split up into “chapters”, if you will.

“They’re a few moments in the life as a photographer when you see the light. Even when you think you see it you realize there is more to explore. The light of inspiration dawned on me when I saw Harold’s magic pictures in a publication. Checking his website he offered a workshop where he would share his working method! Harold has a rigid workflow and well thought methodology to teach his process. If you take his workshop, be prepared to take in a lot! His material and assignments are the best in class. Which also means that you will want to do your best. It is almost a miracle that you can learn and share work across an ocean, but Harold takes the role of a conductor with patience and firm guidance.After the workshop, I’m still learning and exploring on my own, I also look at light and shapes with different eyes.Thanks!”

“Most photographers are familiar with the famous quote of George Eastman:   “Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.”  What Harold Ross teaches makes this quote a reality.  Take this course—you will not regret it.  Harold Ross is a master teacher who has that rare ability to make the ordinary extraordinary—an exceptional gift!

– John H. Gerber, NY, Remote Online 1-on-1 Workshop

“As a painter I have always been interested in still life painting and as a photographer have followed Harold Ross for years.  I have meant to go to a workshop but have not had the time to travel.  When I found out an online option was available, I jumped on it.  An understatement would be to say the experience was amazing.  Not only is Mr. Ross a great photographer, but is an outstanding teacher.  I was worried about the online forum, but it turned out to be great.  Not only did I learn about the basics, and not so basic, techniques involved with light painting, but also learned and reinforced basics of photography (that I thought I knew) as well as extensive Photoshop review and learning.  As is evident from the class, the structure of the workshop is outstanding.  Mr. Ross is exceptionally organized and proceeded in a manner that goes from basic to advanced.  The value of the workshop is phenomenal!  I got to sit with the premier light painting photographer and learn and Mr. Ross was always willing to get on to a Zoom call at anytime to help with even the littlest detail.  I know that I have merely scratched the surface and look forward to taking another workshop in the near future!”

Course Outline:

Please contact me at: harold@rossstudio.com for a complete outline, syllabus, and list of training topics covered in the workshop!

I will also review and teach visual accommodation, management of depth of field, pre-sharpening (my way), and much more! The workshop is full of great technical information and photographic training. 

Again, these are very boiled-down descriptions; each session will be filled with tons of learning.

**** Very important***: In addition to the training, you will be provided with lots of backup information; an updated and comprehensive set my Photoshop actions, updated written step-by-step directions for every phase, links for needed (minimal) equipment, updated sharpening (my own method) instructions, and private tutorial videos which you’ll be able to refer to after the workshop, and much more.

To my students that have already signed up for the workshop, if you are a beginner in Photoshop, I do offer (and many students take this) a Pre-Workshop introduction to Photoshop (includes introduction to layers, masking and groups, as well as adjustment layers). This is a 90 minute Zoom session, and can be taken at any time prior to the workshop. This is recommended only if you don’t have a good basic knowledge of the Layers window in Photoshop.

“Just a quick note to thank you again for being such a good teacher.  I feel by taking your class, my photography will make a quantum leap forward.  Now, the hard work begins by putting everything you’ve taught into practice where the results will really shine.  I look forward to seeing you again and showing you some of my work that include all the steps you’ve taught. Thank you again!”

CANCELLATION POLICY:

Because this is a remote workshop, the cancellation policy is quite flexible. If you need to cancel any time prior to a month before the agreed first online meeting, there is only a $50 cancellation fee.

If you have to cancel within 30 days of the first workshop session, we cannot issue a refund due to the fact that we will be sharing a great deal of proprietary workshop information with you during that time. We understand that sometimes emergencies arise, and although you would not be getting a refund, we will hold your tuition for a year so that you can reschedule your workshop.

Cancellations cannot be accepted after the workshop starts, as you will be provided with lots of proprietary information at that time.
