  • <p>Clay Blackmore is the real deal in portrait photography. The guy is a bundle of creative energy and technical mastery. I took portraiture with Monte Zucker, and am glad to have Clay now as his successor. This concepts in this course are the rudiments. They&#39;ll never change, regardless of trends and fads. Clay is also very likable and fun to watch work. Keep your ears peeled for every word. When Clay points out those many little details, they all count. Love the course, and have a ton of respect for Clay. He&#39;s a portrait master, and a great guy. What else could any portrait student hope for?</p>
  • Of all the courses I have purchased without exception this is the best. Clay is an excellent teacher. When he speaks he is saying something and not just talking. He explains his lighting techniques in great detail while demonstrating them . He is clear, concise and fun to listen to. You will learn how to pose individuals all the way to large groups, while learning the correct way to light them. All this while being entertained by one of America's great portrait photographers.
  • <p> I purchased the course for a few specific things listed in the description, and after being able to see some of the previews and wrap ups for the day. After the purchase and going through them, I have found that the value of this course is well above what I paid. Clay does not walk you through the course, he runs through it holding your hand like you are both being chased through Central Park by Godzilla! Everything is explained well and examples are both amazing and inspiring. I am still taken back that there is so much useful information here in this program, well worth a look for anyone wanting to get started, improve, or if you are just looking for some new techniques. </p>
