Immediately after Rachel and Jason’s wedding in south Florida Double Agent Tucci was off to Las Vegas to teach at two professional photographer seminars.
The first of which is called AfterDark. Just like the name implies a lot of the program happens late night/early AM. This is not your typical learning platform. It is for photographers at all levels and includes learning pods for shooting, marketing, lighting, editing and anything else a pro photog wants to know. The mentors are the best in the industry and you have full access to them. Let me say that again, “full access”; no bs! Really, it’s like you just walk up to Lori Nordstrom and pick her brain about a marketing strategy you are working on. Or ask Jordan Chan (one of my personal favorites) to help you with all things off-camera flash.
Luv that background? I know we do. Then check out the Freedom Cloth from Denny Manufacturing.
AfterDark is perfect for the creative mind. There is only a loose structure and the goal is to shoot a ton of cool stuff and learn as much as you can in 3 days. I am not kidding about the cool stuff. Damon’s latest obsession (believe me there are many) are the freedom cloth backgrounds and roll up floors from Denny Manufacturer Co. They photograph amazing, but I digress. You can imagine how this flexibility can drive an overly organized, partly OCD girl like myself crazy, but you can’t argue with success and it does yield superior results. Worth checking out.

Speaking of Damon’s obsessions, he has recently began a love affair with the Radiopopper off camera flash system. This is a versatile lighting control solution that is fully compatible with both NIKON and Canon cameras. Bye-bye line of sight, hello do whatever you want to do. This is totally up Damon’s lighting alley.
If you missed Damon in LV, no worries because he just signed on to teach at the next three AfterDarks. The first of which will be in Cincinnati on May 9-11 at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza. Oh and please don’t wait to sign up, because they like to keep the student/teacher ratio low and registration fills up fast. Make sure you use “DAMON” for your coupon code to receive $50 off.
