Trull has been a professional photographer focusing on weddings, fashion and fine art photography for the past 12 years. He'll use this experience to show you some new and innovative ways of posing and lighting in his "Couture Portraiture" Super Monday class on May 14 in New York City.
Trull's love of photography began as a child. He distinctly remembers going to a baseball game when he was eight years old and using his father's camera to capture people in the audience.
"I was fascinated by how they interacted," Trull remembers of the experience. "When I found out that I could actually do it as a profession, I knew what I was meant to do." And do it he did. By the time he was 18, Trull was photographing weddings for friends and family, and his business only grew from there.
Today, Trull still loves to photograph weddings, in addition to his work as a fashion and fine art photographer. "I think it's amazing that I am able to capture the best day of a bride and groom's life...and that they can look at those images years from now and be taken back to that day."
Like many photographers, though, Trull says his biggest challenge is differentiating himself from the competition: "When there are so many other photographers in your field, it is essential to make your images unique so that you can stand out." That's why he says it's so important to constantly better yourself and continue to evolve in your style.
If you want to see how Trull has developed his own unique style and succeeded in the large market of New York City, don't miss his "Couture Portraiture" Super Monday class on May 14.
"We will be using different shooting techniques and posing styles to try and open the students up to a new way of thinking," says Trull about his class. "It's too easy in this industry to get comfortable in the day-to-day and use the same poses, same lighting and same locations...and lose the love for photography in the process!"
If you're ready to improve your creativity, this may be just the class for you.
