Through slideshows, critiques and student discussions you will come away with the knowledge and vision of what strong composition and skilled use of lighting contributes to making a great photo.

If you want to make compelling photos by design not just luck, this seminar is for you. This is an intermediate through advanced photo course in a day for those who know how to use their camera and want to get the most out of it. We will analyze many of Steven’s images and critique participant’s work. The presentations will involve important concepts of composition,
light, and all the many decisions that go into making a photo.

Discussions will range from the best lens choices to choosing the optimal time of day to shoot, and much more. Get a glimpse behind the scenes of a professional photographer’s life, studio
and equipment. Put down your camera, channel your imagination, and learn from a day that explores the nuances of creative technique.

This is an event packed with information and important tips about all facets of photography. At the heart of the seminar is critical thinking about why you’re making photos and how you accomplish your perfect image. By looking at some of Steven’s commercial and editorial images, we can ask the important “why” questions and discuss the basic principles involved in 
capturing an engaging image.

You’ll be in a comfortable, focused and creative classroom at Steven Meckler’s studio.

Steven Meckler came to Tucson by way of Brooklyn, New York. He developed his love of photography in high school and graduated from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. After a stint as a medical photographer at Sloan-Kettering Memorial Hospital in Manhattan, Steven moved west and set up his studio in downtown Tucson. He first focused on building a solid commercial photography business with clients such as JC Penney, Intel, IBM, Pella Windows, New York Magazine and Phoenix Home & Garden, among many others. But the core of his success comes from the many local businesses, ad agencies and magazines he has had the pleasure of working with over the last thirty-plus years.

Steven was an adjunct professor of digital photography at Pima Community College for 14 years and has taught workshops and continuing education classes for high school photo teachers through the Arizona Department of Education. He also coordinates and teaches an annual series of photography workshops for Tucson high school photo students.
