Super Monday Instructors: Gwen Greenglass Shines Light on Her Background and Upcoming Class

gwengreenglass_headshot.jpgOften, our parents influence decisions about our future...but we each find our own unique path due to our inspirations and skills. For example, Gwen Greenglass, M.Photog., CPP, of Bonita Springs, Fla., first became interested in photography as a child, thanks to her father. His hobby was photography, and he had a darkroom in their home while she was growing up. And while such a hobby is not remarkable, his subject matter definitely was!

"He was involved with the rocket program and would bring home images of the test monkeys and of the earth from outer space," Greenglass remembers.

After this unique introduction to photography, Greenglass became a professional photographer in 1996 and now operates Portraits by Gwen, a family and children's portrait business. While her father's space photography drew her into the photographic industry, she found her own love in photographing people--they inspire her to capture the beauty and uniqueness that she sees in them.

"The innocence of children and the bond they have with their families are great images togwengreenglass_1.jpg capture now and for the future," says Greenglass.

Greenglass loves what she does, but she admits that not having a staff and having to know every part of her business from top to bottom can be challenging. However, the photographers she has met through PPA help her overcome this challenge--she has a network of colleagues available to discuss issues and share ideas with her.

Of course, part of knowing your photography business from top to bottom is being able to capture great images. Greenglass will teach you how she does it in her Super Monday "Window Light" class on October 25th in Bonita Springs.

In the course, you'll learn how to use natural, window light in your studio and in your client's home to capture soft and natural-looking portraits. "I want everyone to be able to use any window to create a unique image," adds Greenglass about the goal she has for her students.

Super Monday is an educational program, sponsored by PPA, every spring and fall. These daylong, interactive workshops are conducted in locations around the country, allowing PPA members to earn merits for sharing their craft and enabling all photographers to learn new skills and develop professional networking contacts.
