What you'll do

BRAND NEW! Learn how to capture stunning portraits of your family, friends or yourself from me, a professional photographer, in my Chapel Hill studio. We spend the first hour reviewing the basics of wardrobe, lighting, posing and connecting with your subjects and capturing portraits of each other! During the second hour, we download the images and I teach you the basics of a digital workflow and ADOBE LIGHTROOM--the gold-standard in photo archiving for amateurs and professionals. We will also review mobile phone photography depending on time and participant(s) preference. The experience accommodates all levels of skill from beginners to professionals-and because I started photography in my grandmother's darkroom at the age of twelve, I encourage anyone from adolescence to over eighty and beyond to enroll.

Missy McLamb is a photographer based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. In the mid 1990’s after working in New York City as a photojournalist for NEWSDAY and for TIME MAGAZINE, she was hired to photograph the nuptials of the children of famous authors, politicians and actors.

In 2011 she collaborated on a coffee table book of photography with race car driver Jimmie Johnson.

Today Missy photographs editorial, commercial and portrait assignments for a variety of media outlets.
