Tuesday, May 28, 2019
6:30pm Social 30, 7:00pm Program
A Workshop with your expert guides,
Michael Joseph, M.Photog Cr., FDPE, FED and Tammy Czigan, CPP, FED, FSA
Do you struggle with creating a headshot that your client loves without taking dozens of images? Would you like to learn how to analyze faces and create more flattering light on your client’s faces? Then don’t miss the JPPG Hands on Headshots workshop!
Come prepared to work from both sides of the camera. That’s right, it’s headshot night at the guild meeting! Bring your camera, favorite portrait lens and dress in any style you choose for your new headshot.
We will begin with 10 practical tips on lighting and posing and move right into the hands-on workshop and you will photograph each other. Two lighting set ups will be in place.
Get the best headshot you can of each person you photograph, because at the June meeting we will pick a winner! You will be given instructions on how to submit the headshots you take. Our committee will narrow the choices and you will vote on your favorite headshot at our June meeting.
We are looking forward to seeing you there!

With over 30 years, 16 states and thousands of portrait sessions behind him, he has photographed every stage of life and type of person that you could put in front of him. He is a walking encyclopedia of his craft.

With an outgoing personality and a background in recruiting, Tammy is adept at quickly putting her headshot clients at ease. She has photographed hundreds of headshots and a large percentage of them on a green screen. She loves the challenge of getting a headshot that every client loves, especially the ones who walk in the door saying they hate having their headshot done.
Tammy has her Certified Professional Photographer from PPA and her FSA and FED degrees from Florida Professional Photographers. She has attended FPP’s Florida Photography Workshops 9 times and is happy to share the knowledge that was so generously shared with her.
