The 5,100-square-foot studio at Photo Studio Group is a blank canvas upon which a community of visiting and member artists stages their craft. For an hourly rate, photographers can click their shutters at a professional studio backdrop and use lights, backgrounds, and grip equipment on a first-come, first-served basis. A series of workshops bring the ins and outs of the industry into focus, including a class on studio techniques that covers set design, hair and makeup collaboration, and teaching mannequins to hold a pose. Photo foundations workshops focus on topics such as camera equipment and composition, and Photoshop workshops introduce students to the image-enhancing software and other Creative Suite applications. Photo Studio Group also hosts a pro lecture series, where esteemed photographers and designers chat about their techniques in a casual setting.
A professional sports photographer, Laura Clouse's father never missed an opportunity to pass on his shutter-snapping skills to his daughter. Today, Laura draws on her father's lessons and her youth in the photogenic surroundings of southern California to helm her own professional on-location shoots, producing both digital and tangible prints.
Laura gravitates towards the organic, relying on natural lighting and candid shots to produce genuine, unaffected images devoid of fake poses and digitally inserted Hulk Hogan arms. Spontaneous pictures that capture real emotion, such as the adoration of mothers towards their infant or the unbridled love between newly engaged couples, make up most of her portfolio.
