Dwight Vasel has racked up more than 14 Emmy Awards for his videography talent; but at his studio, he focuses on still images. For more than two decades, he has built his shoots around his two specialties: wedding photography and unique portraits. His idiosyncratic portraits range from shots of motorcyclists astride their bikes to pictures of a baby laughing on an outdoor couch beneath a leafless tree. At each of his shoots, he collaborates with clients to find a concept that suits their tastes; alternatively, students can enroll in his photography classes and learn to compose their own shots. His courses can cover a range of topics, from shooting techniques for DSLRs to effective ways to use flash rather than just replacing a semi-broken flashlight.
