Sandro’s workshop will consist of a brief slide presentation examining where portraiture originated and how lighting was first used. He will begin with a verbal and visual discussion of a series of his own images and how he chooses to light them. Sandro will then cover the practice of how to make your subjects comfortable in front of the camera, from iconic sitters, celebrities or to a best friend. This workshop will include a series of hands on lighting set-ups to show how to produce a beautiful style of different light on a subject. Throughout the workshop, Sandro will have a Question and Answer period to answer questions from our new generation of photographers. Having a Question and Answer period is extremely important for Sandro. He feels this will allow the attendees to fully walk away from the workshop with full understanding.
Sandro Miller (born in 1958) is a photographic and video artist. He works as a publisher, lecturer, teacher, documentarian and humanist. He approaches his work with extreme sensitivity. He photographs forgotten people, who each day fight for survival. With respect and a bit of a parody, along with John Malkowich, he created picture series related to the art history; formal racial Expressivism (in Black Hair); revelatory cultural access (in Bikers and Matadors); a political narrative (in Cuban Portraits) and many more. His pictures can be cross-platform: black and white or color, film or digital, large formats or small, still or video. He lives in Chicago but photographs all over the world.
