Innumerate guides zoom in on one area of portrait photography and tell you everything that you need to know. Few provide a comprehensive overview of every part of the portrait photography process, from capture to edit. PORTRAITRUE UNLEASHED fills that void. An enormous range of different photographic styles are covered, with a quick summary of how each is achieved, what equipment is needed and how they are best to be edited. Crucially, the people skills needed to work in different environments are also covered; an area nearly always left out in other guides.
Travis Gadsby, CPP owns and operates Silverlake Photo Accessories, The Brink Studio and The Model Program. Travis specializes in High School Senior photography with impact. He and his team spend most of their time working on new products, backdrops, and marketing campaigns that make the senior market stand up and take notice. The portrait industry has changed dramatically over the past decade and photographers must constantly evolve to stay at the top of their game. Having started at the bottom and worked his way up over the past 23 years gives Travis an ability to relate to photographers of any skill level at workshops around the US and Canada. As a vendor, Travis has also spent a great deal of time speaking with photographers from all walks of life, which helps him understand the complex problems of the modern day studio. His style of teaching concentrates on the individual needs of his students and what they can do to adapt and prosper.
