Second Thursday Event: July 11, 2019 6-9pm
Choose It or Lose It! –
How to Decide Which Equipment to Pack
and What to Leave Behind

In this presentation, studio owner and travel workshop photographer Nicholas Pappagallo will give you 10 essential tips for making sure you choose the right bodies, lenses, and accessories for the subjects you plan to shoot.  More isn’t always better – especially while on the go. Choosing the right equipment begins with prioritizing the things that matter most.  Nicholas will cover key factors you should consider before heading out on location to ensure you have your most effective tools on hand without the excess.

Lumix Ambassador, Nicholas Pappagallo is an east coast transplant living and working in Arizona.
As a busy studio owner, travel and commercial photographer, his broad variety of work has made it essential to know
the capabilities and limits of his gear and decide what to leave home.
Teaching has always been an important part of Nicholas life. CaptureSchool & CapturePhotoCon are just two of the educational initiatives that he and his partner have established to help fellow photographers hone their craft.



Second Thursday Event
Get Ready For Your Close Up :
Photographing in Small Spaces
June 13th,  2019  6-9pm


One of the greatest challenges for the location photographer is never quite knowing
the amount of space the client will provide you.
Sometimes a scout day just isn’t in anyone’s calendar.
You know your gear and you’ve got a pretty good feel for the technical, but what do you do when
suddenly presented with the proverbial shoebox?
Your go-to lighting setup in a studio may look completely different in cramped quarters.
If you’re used to shooting in a larger space, how do you get a similar quality of light in a smaller one?

This month, join ASMP AZ/PHX and speaker Scott Myers to get ready for your close-up!
In this talk, Scott will offer insight on the ways to best shape light in smaller spaces,
helping you better control your light and achieve the results you’re looking for.
Whether you’re beginning your studio lighting journey
or looking to expand your existing tool belt, this presentation should
help you light more confidently in spaces of all sizes.
