Under the tutelage of experienced photographer Mike Maez, classes explore basic camera-usage principles during informal classroom sessions before diving into a live shooting demo employing models and the SkySong center as subjects. After the workshop is over, students are freed to begin their portfolios with an open shootout as Mike offers helpful pointers.<p>
Mike Maez Photography
When Mike Maez purchased his first digital camera in 2001, it was love at first snapshot. Swapping his previous day job for a life behind the lens, Maez has since filled his portfolio with more than 40 magazine covers, publishing work for Getty, the Boston Globe, and corporate clients including AOL, Microsoft, and Ford. This infectious enthusiasm extends to his portraiture, helping him immortalize wedding days, graduations, or sack-race victories with complete photographic packages rendered in digital formats or appealing albums. Mike also teaches students to become self-sufficient shooters with photography workshops, during which classes combine hands-on experience and classroom work to teach pupils how to attractively compose and light their shots.
