Ed Pedi -- 2019 NECCC Photography Conference speaker -- Posing & Lighting of Family Groups, Simplified

Meet Ed Pedi, one of our amazing NECCC 209 speakers. I first met Ed through PPA (Professional Photographer Association). Ed is dynamic, energetic and extremely knowledgeable, and at the same time down to earth, approachable and willing to share everything because he loves to teach and inspire. It is easy to feel intimated when learning from a Mater like Ed, but if you take one of his two hands-on portrait classes you will learn sooo much and come away a better photographer. Some photographers hold back, but not Ed, he will share his knowledge with you. Ed makes his living doing portrait photography, quite a rarity in today's world. He is talented and modest he just won the PPA 2018 Grand Imaging Award for High School Senior Portrait category for "The Finale" https://edpediphoto.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Newsletter-first-quarter-2018.pdf

Ed will be presenting his ‘Posing & Lighting of Family Groups, Simplified’ program (twice, open to all) which has three specific learning takeaways:
1. How to prepare for a family portrait session (equipment, props, lighting, etc.)
2. How to pose & light groups quickly and easily.
3. Learn how much fun photographing families can be with Ed’s simple approach of preparation and having a game plan for every session.

Ed is also teaching two hands-on classes. pre-registration is required.
Bring your camera and let Ed show you how to pose and light with live models.
