These classes are taught by, Bart.

Bart is a Boise based photographer. For the past 7 years Bart has dabbled in all genres of photography before finding his niche in Dance and Automotive photography. From the start he has heavily used lighting with everything he photographs and over the years this has given him a deep understanding of Off Camera Lighting. He currently freelances for a half dozen automotive magazines and shoots for a few local dance studios. His passion and understanding of off camera lighting is why we are excited to have Bart help us revamp our educational classes which we cant wait to start offering.
