There is a better way to learn studio lighting - and we know how!
We have been teaching photographers to see and use studio lighting for over 18 years. We turn copyists into artists not just by showing you how, but by teaching you why.
We wrote The Master Lighting Course for photographers who want to master the art of controlled lighting. For those that want to create wonderful images in the studio or outdoors. For the new photographers who want to create what they see in their mind's eye.
For experienced photographers who want to expand on their self-learning.
The Master Lighting Course is for photographers who want to harness our 18 years of teaching experience, and our 33 years of photography acumen in one well thought out program.
This course provides over 125 videos lessons on the art of studio and location lighting photography. The program is very well organized, with easily referenced lessons presented in an educationally-sound order. We don't over load you with jargon or ego - instead we show you everything you need to know. We don't leave out any details. We show you how and tell you why every step of the way.
"Taking Bud's lighting course enabled me to go from having zero previous experience with strobes and studio photography to being a confident and creative artist in the studio. He quickly arms you with the knowledge you need, not only to get the equipment set up and working, but also how to use that equipment to achieve many varied lighting styles. There are few people in this industry with the breadth of knowledge in this field as Bud."

Enter Bud Thorpe and his lighting courses, in and out of the studio. His courses have been a game changer for me and many of my peers throughout New England. It has opened doors and opportunity for me I never thought possible."
