Off Camera Flash by JVS » 2 Day Lighting & Portrait Workshop with JVS & Anne – October 7th & 8th
Ok so you ask who is JVS – that’s ok, I know you may not have heard about him, since he’s been living the happy life in Dallas ever since getting married and retiring to oh, 20-30 weddings a year. Regrettably, the industry doesn’t reward true visionaries – it rewards self-promoters. He’s the former…
Joseph Victor Stephanchek was there at the beginning.
The beginning of the cultural revolution of wedding photography, like circa 2000-2003. And he did a good bit of the Sisyphean task of getting the wedding imagery market out of the doldrums.
I know, you probably weren’t in the industry yet – but he’s not an old timer, he’s an innovator. He’s a visionary – there’s nothing like the work he produces and shows. Pick a gallery from his documentary weddings portfolio and see if you’ve ever seen such an intense vision?
And lighting is not about technique.
It’s about vision!
Technique follows the vision, and so I recommend that you take a chance with your time and money, have a trip to Dallas and meet the man (and his woman). Dallas really rocks the photography world, making NY jealous! So all you New Yorkers better hop a plane and get some lessons to get yourselves back in the game!

Now a little more about JVS:
The man can balance a handheld flash, with ambient like nobody’s business. Which is just a statement that words don’t do justice to the creativity he can pull off with a 24mm lens and a shoe flash. Proving the point lighting comes from vision – all the way up to the big guns, he can stun you with a powerpack as well! So go to the workshop and get some info on anything from a Vivitar to a Profoto Pack.
Did I mention I wish I could go? Tough thing is with my schedule, it’s hard to get an opening less than three months out. This workshop is just three weeks out! jump on it,
And tell him Neil sent ya!
