Studio History Don MacGregor started his PROFESSIONAL career in 1970 and started MacGregor Studios in 1974. The studio has grown from a humble beginning in an apartment to a 500 sq ft store front and finally to a 3500 sq foot building in Vancouver. The studio has gone through several changes over the years. Wedding photography has comprised approx. 40% of the studio business and has been consistent over the years. Graduation portraits were a foundation in the 70’s and 80’s. The 90’s saw a dramatic focus on Lifestyle family and wall portraiture which now comprises almost 70% of the studios sales. Today, the studio focuses on family portraiture and wall décor.
PUT THE “P” INTO PROFESSIONAL
Be More professional with your control of exposure and lighting subjects in every condition
Be More professional in our abilities to design, pose and create portraits that define personalized art… art that reflects your personal style... not just a “picture”
Be More professional in how you brand yourself, how you present your work to clients and how you price and deliver your work
Don’s classes will be fast paced presentations on each of these topics with a constant focus on setting the value of what you do above the swarm of weekenders.
Don will show how to establish the correct exposure for any given situation and how to control the values of light such that we have a full range of information in our files.
Don will demonstrate posing concepts that establish casually elegant images that stand head and shoulders above the “sardine can” style of posing so often seen today. Don will also present a module on his post production workflow and more importantly the “process” used by successful portrait photographers to elevate their sales from the very low industry average to significant averages
