    Not everyone has the luxury of either owning or being able to afford multiple lights, but don’t let that deter you!  Join PPA edu lighting expert, Tony Corbell Cr. Photog., API, as he walks you through the diverse range you can have with a single light in your studio to get the most bang for your buck. This episode will be the first in a series devoted to lighting and this tutorial has been designed to showcase several very clever ways of working with only one light source. Discover how to utilize your full lighting, learn to create depth and dimension by means of light and shadow, and plan ahead so you can focus on keeping your full attention on your client rather than fixing your equipment along the way.

        Tony has been involved in professional photography since 1979 when his first studio position was with his sister and her husband in West Texas.  Since then he has moved through an almost inspired life that has included traveling and lecturing in more than twenty countries, has photographed three U.S. presidents, 185 world leaders at the United Nations, sports celebrities, almost 800 brides and grooms, and a handful of NASA astronauts.

        In 2012, Tony passed a major milestone having taught more than 600 seminars and workshops nationally and internationally.  In 2008/09 alone, Tony spoke to over 9,000 photographers in 36 cities throughout the world including London, Glasgow, Dublin, Toronto, Vancouver, Mexico City, Sydney and many more U.S. cities. 2010 – 2012 was again busy with Tony traveling to Germany, Las Vegas, Nashville, New York, Dubai, London, Halifax, Nova Scotia, and many more than 30 U.S. cities teaching photographic lighting and image workflow processes and practices. His Basic Studio Lighting book from publisher Random House (AmPhoto) has been popular worldwide and is the basis for numerous photographic college lighting courses. Tony has written articles in nearly every major photographic magazine in the U.S., Japan, the U.K., and China.

        When asked what he is most known for, he says “being just about the biggest Beatles fan in the world.”
