As one of Canon’s “Explorers of Light,” Grecco’s lectures on photography are wildly popular and he has been profiled in virtually all of the key photographic trade journals.

Lecture Description

The difference between an ordinary photograph and a truly striking portrait lies in the photographer’s ability to see past the obvious and into the more intimate nature of the subject. Some of us are naturally inclined to relate to our subjects and bring them out of their protective “camera smiles.”Some aren’t. What most of us don’t understand yet is how to connect with this person, and at the same time to see the emotional value of our surroundings. The play of light and shadow, soft shapes and hard lines, and the angles available to you are your tools to create not just a photo, but a work of art. In this lecture, you will add these tools to those that you already carry in your camera bag, and you’ll leave with a new pair of eyes and renewed inspiration. You’ll be challenged to re-invent the way you see light and shadow, and you’ll become skilled in using all your resources to enhance your subject’s emotional nature on film. Learn to develop your own creativity by broadening your sensitivity, your vision, and your connection to your environment.


This event will be hosted at Foley/ZelmanStudios, 2308 Kettner Street, Suite C, San Diego, CA 92101. Doors will open at 6:30pm, with the program beginning at 7:00pm. Food and beverage will be provided. Save $5 off the at-the-door price by preregistering today!
