The Art of Underwater Portrait Photography
Underwater Portrait Photography is a very unique art. The demand is growing all over the country. I am so excited for you to learn about topics such as underwater properties, light, and backscatter. After the science section is covered, we will talk about the diverse underwater cameras and housing options, flashes, settings, nailing white balance incamera, posing, clothing, makeup, how to find a pool, and the business side of underwater portraiture. Lastly, I will process one to two images in Lightroom and Photoshop so that you walk away with a basic understanding of how to retouch an underwater image.
Underwater portrait photography is an exceptional way to express your creativity, and by adding underwater portrait sessions, your business will stand out, even in Pennsylvania! Oh, and did I mention that you don’t even have to know how to swim or put your head underwater to create art? Please, join the class to learn about the possibilities that underwater holds.

Outside of work, Lori has been married to her husband Jim for thirty-seven years. Jim and Lori have raised three children and have five grandchildren. They are dog lovers, avid scuba-divers, cyclists, and snow skiers. During the summer months, Jim and Lori raise Monarch butterflies. Last year they raised and released 1220 Monarch Butterflies. “It’s a part-time job, but one that brings us great satisfaction as we teach others about the potential Monarch Butterfly extinction”. Raising Monarchs all started with a photo challenge, you will have to ask her for that story.
