Join APA and Westcott Lighting for an incredible afternoon workshop where JC Carey, Westcott Lighting Master Extraordinaire, (joined by Travis Keyes & Ashe Husein) will be on-hand to demonstrate strobe lighting techniques and Mixing Strobe with constant light to capture and freeze motion. . The workshop will have three classically trained dancers (2 female and 1 male) — for photographing and demonstration.
Attendance is strictly limited to 13 participants so everyone will have ample opportunity to photograph the dancers with the new techniques you’ve learned.

Ashe Husein is a photographer and educator who has spent his life balancing between countries, cultures, and professions, it is only fitting that Ashe’s artistic style also be defined by the in-between moments. While Ashe was previously a primarily landscape and street photographer, what originated as hesitant dabbling with portraiture has now culminated with collaborations with New York’s most talented ballerinas and the discovery of his unique talent for capturing what Ashe refers to as “the unexpected in the expected.” Ashe attributes his work’s documentary-style tinge to how he got his start in photography — taking photographs for his high school yearbook — in one of the Middle East’s most notorious conflict zones. Capturing what Ashe described as “a pretty normal high school experience” in a region primarily photographed for its conflicts stoked his passion for capturing prevalent subject matter in a personal and more positive light.

JC Carey - @JCPhotoMedia
Joseph “JC” Carey is a lifetime image maker that, like so many photographers, was terrified of lighting until he was gifted with a lighting class in 2007. The class wasn’t very good, but it lit a fire that has never stopped burning. That gift changed everything. It transformed him from someone that barely took pictures of people and knew nothing about lighting into someone still trying to figure out how to light everything.
The last 13 years have passed with him being blessed with a daughter, a career doing what he loves, multiple magazine covers, and with meeting amazing people and trying to create great images of them. The art of photography and taking pictures is his passion but the ability to make his vision a reality in a photograph is what truly drives him.
JC recently joined the FJ Westcott Company as their Eastern Accounts Manager.
