ADRIAN SOMMELING

PHOTOGRAPHER AND RETOUCHER

ADRIAN SOMMELING
Adrian approaches his pieces like photorealistic paintings, sketching out each one before taking to his camera.  As a result he creates striking, unusual and powerful images that are sure to induce a double take.  Heavily inspired by his young son and youthfulness in general, Sommeling creates pieces that capture the beauty and wonder of childlike imagination. This workshop will teach you how to recreate his style while adding your own personal touch.


RONALD KOSTER
Ronald Koster is a part time professional photographer with a passion for autonomous work. For his autonomous work he “picks” his models largely from the streets. The handling of his models with his working method he dubs as “Guerrilla Style”. Ronald has in the past recent years worked hard to nail a own a recognizable consistent style of portraits. His photographs have perfected their respect not by finishing endless in post-processing, but mainly by clever use of flash.
