“I am AMAZED how, after watching so many tutorials on lighting over the years, THIS one is the one that has changed me life. And I've only watched 2 videos so far. The Headshot and the Small Spaces ones have allowed be to offer a unique, professional headshot service that has been incredibly well received with the folks I've photographed thus far. I am finally able to take the headshots I've always dreamed of.”

“I had a last minute headshot session. I watched Felix’s “Headshots and Formal portraits” lighting style. I set up my lights. My headshot portraits were taken to the next level. So lovely. So easy. Grab it and go. You’ll let ve it.”
“This is one of my go-to lighting setups! It creates the most beautiful unique headshots and my make clients love it! I was so worried about photographing a bald client for fear of creating a hot spot on top of his head. This class teaches you how to avoid that, and still create interesting light that can captivate you. Felix teaches you not to worry about technical details, but to actually LOOK at what you’re creating to see what you need to change, and then gives you the tools to know how to change it.”
“I absolutely love this lighting. It is all about the placement and Felix is so easy to listen to and learn from. He takes the anxiety out of using strobe lighting.”
— Dana N.
