In his career, Dan McClanahan has discovered that mastery of lighting has been the biggest differentiator and job security in his business. Being able to show a client the back of your camera and drop their jaw with un-retouched beauty gives the power of self-confidence and buffers your sale. In this class Dan will share how he executes his most successful lighting designs, with primary focus on flash photography. He will teach you how to effectively problem solve unideal situations like shadeless mid-day photos and dreary overcast days, using light as a tool to exceed client expectations on each and every session. He'll share the modern lighting styles that their clients are loving and get you pumped up to push yourself in 2019!
Dan McClanahan became a photographer in 2009 with the goal of creating a fresh alternative to traditional photography in his market. His quest was so successful that his work quickly made waves in the photo industry with multiple Grand Imaging Awards, WPPI awards, magazine features and becoming one of the youngest photographers on record to receive all three photography degrees bestowed by PPA. Dan has given back to the photography community as an educator, teaching numerous times at Imaging USA, SYNC, After Dark Education, PhotoVision and several smaller events. He owns and operates McClanahan Studio with his best friend and beautiful wife, Alex, and splits his time between advertising photography and modern high school senior photography. The couple lives and works in a 12k sq/ft historic building they renovated and share with nine tenants. Outside of work Dan is a small town Iowa introvert that loves Jesus, his family, punk rock drumming and strong coffee.
