The studio, located in Silicon Valley’s Campbell, California, offers advanced technology, a production studio space, a display gallery, and intimate classroom environment.
The studio accommodates fine art and commercial photography with the latest in lighting equipment, large format printing, with an Epson 9900, as well as the capacity for gallery style display.
We produce video with Super 35mm, editing, creative, and design capability serving personal, small business and commercial markets. We have produced YouTube video for musicians to share their talent, legacy videos for families to share their memories, and video for companies like Unified Color building tutorials for web based instruction. Examples of this work can been seen under the Video dropdown on this website along with a more detailed discussion of Priceless Footage.
With room for 30 students, our studio conducts workshops on Photoshop, HDR Capture, DSLR Video, Lightroom, as well as a variety of other topics including lighting, creative and fine art composition, and creative shooting.
Instructors come from a wide variety of backgrounds from Pulitzer Prize winning photographers Rick E. Martin and Kim Kominich, to John Omvik, Vice President of Unified Color, maker of HDR software. Also, Nate Donovan a very popular photoshop instructor conducts classes specifically designed for the photographer and you can learn more about Nate at NateDonovanphotography.com.
Local photographers like Julie Kitzenberger and Don Schremp regularly hold classes at the studio. Julie likes to photograph those unusual places for special images and her work can be seen in several galleries in the Bay Area. Don makes magic out of the ordinary with his creative photographic skills and special eye. Light Workshops in Los Osos also brings its curriculum to the South Bay with classes on a variety of subjects. All of our efforts are focused on improving your ability to capture images you love.
From time to time, photographers with very special skills will offer the opportunity to share their insights. Our Hold the Eye Images Meetups include monthly joint sessions with Brian Tramontana’s Meetup called Exposed to conduct a joint photo critique. It’s a meeting where anyone can bring two images for constructive comments. Bring in your most difficult subject and get some help or your best image for some valuable pointers from the group. Other regular activities are scheduled to reflect a specific group’s interests.
If you don’t live near us, you can follow us on Hold the Eye Images Blog and Podcast that regularly talk about topics that interest photographers. We have a Facebook page that highlights much our activity as well as a twitter account where we send out timely information to photographers.
