Elevation Calgary

Elevate your creative photography

Calgary, Alberta

April 21st 2024

Join Nikon and Profoto Ambassador and multi-award-winning photographer Sean LeBlanc for a behind-the-scenes look at how to create masterful, bold and creative portraits. Sean will share his workflow to create bold, dramatic photographs from initial inspiration to clicking the shutter button. Learn how to creatively work with both natural light and off-camera flash, find killer compositions and elicit natural-looking moments from your clients. This intensive class will be taught in two parts: 1) An interactive presentation by Sean that will provide an in-depth look into the creative process – see, compose and create. 2) An intensive live demonstration of all the elements Sean discussed in his presentation. If you have struggled with pushing your creativity to the next level and how to achieve your portrait vision, then this class is for you. Sean will not only present the concepts in a succinct, easy-to-follow format but also offer an extensive hands-on live demonstration.


During the workshop, Sean will create similar photographs (to the ones shown below) to demonstrate creative techniques. Profoto will provide triggers to all students to offer the opportunity to shoot alongside Sean for the entire workshop duration.
