Cliff Mautner Workshop Review
Cliff Mautner Lighting & Skillset Bootcamp Review
"Shadows is my canvas, and light is my paint" - Cliff Mautner
- October 2015 -
At four A.M., I woke up with great anticipation because in two hours I would be on a flight to Philadelphia for a workshop with one of the best and most respected wedding photographers in the world, Cliff Mautner. I was open to the exciting possibilities ahead over the next two and a half days.
When I discovered Cliff’s work many years ago, I was so impressed by his approach to working with light in any conditions, at any time of the day. I was unfamiliar with this concept and was not surprised to learn that he is one of the few US Nikon Ambassadors. The many awards that he has received makes him one of the most respected wedding photographers in the world. One of his most valuable pearls of wisdom he shared was, “it’s about the quality of the light, not the quantity”. In the end, I fully understood the meaning that photography is about drawing with light.
From the start, Cliff continually encouraged us to not only improve our skills but also to find our own style. In his discussion of the business aspects of photography, he said, “Customer service is equal to or more important than the images that you produce”.
Cliff Mautner’s wealth and breadth of knowledge makes this workshop an incredible investment in one’s personal and professional journey with photography.
These are a few pictures that I took during the workshop.
This is a group photo for everyone who attended the workshop.
