“First of all I want to say, that both lighting series by Felix (indoor and on location) were a real game changer to me! To put it in one sentence: I stopped being afraid of artificial light and started loving working and experimenting with it instead. In the process I moved from 2 Speedlights to 2 ELBs 500.”

“This is so insightful, informative, and tactical. It pays for itself over and over! I watch them over and over and will often pull up specific segments before a shoot!”

Melissa J G.

“We just did a photoshoot on location in an old barn. We scouted and then planned 4 shots using different lighting techniques from the series. They turned out great. The best part was that we could focus on the subject because we were confident in the lighting and knew how to make minor corrections when needed. Thanks!”

“I was scared of lighting for years, so I stayed away from it for the most part. These tutorials have completely changed the way I approach light. Highly recommended for anyone looking to make a big jump in quality of work.”

Christian T.

“Felix Kunze has taken the mystery and fear of lighting and turned it on its head! His simplification of light and how to use it properly makes me excited now to try out new things. I honestly wish he was coming out with a third installment of lighting courses, I would get it in a heartbeat!”

Swat K.

“I have invested in lots of online lighting courses in the past, and this series is by far the best and most concise compilation out there! Simple and to the point in a calm and easily digestible format! A+++”

Ryan T.

“I was skeptical about buying location lighting series as I'm a bit tired of buying "classes, masterclasses and workshops" and finally realizing that I wasn't learning that much. I'm a flash/strobe user since I first picked up a camera as I always loved the look of it, but never felt confident about it. After watching Felix's class everything was clear in my mind and it's so much easier than I thought. I'm not worried about my lighting anymore and now I can worry a bit more about location and composition. I highly recommend this course, it doesn't matter if you are new with artificial lighting it's well made and easy to understand. It's worth every penny! Thanks a lot.”

Felipe G.

“I have purchased both courses and this is one of the best investments I have ever done, besides signing up for Sue Bryce. It is so well explained and totally takes the fear of studio lights away. Both series are lifesavers for me. Best of all it's not technical. I am not a technical person and if you throw numbers at me, I will crumble. Felix makes it so easy. I am still learning but I am finally getting the results I was looking for. It's an investment well worth and it will pay off for sure.”

Sabine E.

“This is a brilliant series that breaks down complex lighting problems into very manageable solutions. The "layering" approach is so helpful in providing a structured approach to lighting as is the explanation of feathering and wrapping. Thank you Felix for the work you have put into making this series. I have now purchased your earlier Lighting Series.”

Neville S.

“I was looking for some time tutorials on lighting tips for location shooting when I found "The location lighting series" from Felix. The materials are very well structured and shows different concepts, which are very easy to apply in real life, and the way Felix shows these concepts and his entire process is amazing. Using some of the techniques in the tutorials, I got astonishing results from the first time I 've applied these so if you are still considering it, you should get it straight away. It offers great value for your money and definitely helps in elevating the quality of your light. I'd recommend this to everyone as I am sure that seasoned photographers will also learn a lot.”

Evgeny I.

“Feeling inspired after watching the location series! Felix provides a practical approach to getting stunningly natural, editorial style shots.. I've been a full time photographer for over 8 years and this course taught me tricks that I had never thought to use. I've already started implementing Felix's techniques into my own photoshoots with excellent results. The best part of this series is that it's not a sales pitch to get us to buy more gear.. He accomplishes almost all of his looks with 1 light or at most 3. Anyone interested in upping their portrait photography skills should purchase this course immediately!”

Elliott O.

“Another excellent course, and as others have mentioned a great compliment to the first Lighting Series. I was a bit thrown off by the amount of post processing to remove the lighting (particularly in the office scene), but the key points about lighting direction are my takeaways. Plus for a working photographer the situations are very relevant, I can see myself in almost all of these scenarios with clients. Another great reference library of material.”

James O.

“I reeeeaaaaally love this series! I have a degree in photography but now I realize how little we learned in school was and I’m so happy I invested in this course. Felix makes everything about light so much easier! The trick to expose for daylight first and then adding some light to the scene is a real eye opener for me since I love the natural feel of this. What was really helpful for me is that Felix always shows the scene he shoots with and without the flash, so you can see what he is doing. I also love the realness of these series, as you see Felix working his way towards perfect lighting ( and sometimes forgets to back the trigger on for a few shots, just like I do a lot of times haha). Really worth the money since all kind of light situations are covered and you get to see how Felix works on set.”

Chantal v.

“The Lighting Series and The Location Lighting Series have both been game changers for me! I’ve barely made a dent in the Location Series, but binged a bit before shooting my sister’s Christmas card photo on a really gloomy day. I had never attempted using a strobe outside, and I was blown away by how easily I was able to get the look I was shooting for on my first attempt!”

Laura W.

“The best!”

bridget k.

“Don't waste your hard earned money on other outdoor portrait courses like I did. It's unbelievable how simple it is to shoot the best portraits you ever imagine. Felix is a great teacher and explains everything (absolutely everyhing !!) in a way that any grandmother can understand. See this as addition to the Lighting series. My strong recommendation to get both courses since they compliment each other very well.”

Peter L.

“Perfect! Not only you’re mastering light marvellously, but you’re great teacher, too. Thank you for so much effort and dedication!”

Alexander G.

“Excellent course - I've felt confident lighting in the studio, but always struggled a bit with mixing strobe and ambient - my pictures looked lit, where I was wanting a more natural feel. This course helped me realize how direction of light, power and placement were key to making a natural looking photo. Also the black tunnel bonus is great - I'm a huge fan of Peter Lindbergh's work, so seeing how to use something like that was fascinating.”

Michael M.

“This course is amazing!! Felix is an excellent instructor, and explains lighting in the most simple way. I have had many ah-ha moments watching The Location Lighting Series - even after having the original Lighting Series. My first try on practicing these techniques and I absolutely love the results!! I can't recommend this course enough!! If you've been on the fence, you surely won't regret it! The small investment in your work will surely pay off with the results. Thank you Felix!”

Carolyn T.

“Wow!!! This is invaluable investment to my portrait studio. Everything is easily laid out as Felix demonstrates the use of light in any location. Before I purchased this course, shooting on location was frightening to say the least. But as Felix breaks down each technique, the bell rings in my head and things just start to click (pun intended lol) I can now confidently go into any session, whether it’s in my studio or a clients office/home or an outdoor location and know with the tools and knowledge Felix teaches I can come away with some amazing portraits that stand apart from other photographers in my area!!! Thank you Felix!!!!”

Denise P.

“I was dragging my feet on getting this course because I felt like I already had a pretty good handle on my understanding of lighting, and because I have always been more of a studio photographer, not so much on-location. But with this whole pandemic situation I have been getting a lot more requests for outdoor sessions and I didn't want my work to look like other lifestyle portrait work - I wanted to make sure I still offered my clients that polished-but-also-natural look that I'm known for. I knew this course would help me do that, so I bought it and I am so happy I did! Worth every penny. Even though I understood the theory of lighting on location, having someone clearly and simply demonstrate things - and show variations of how to work in each scenario - is so valuable! It gave me some new ideas, and more confidence to shoot at what I used to think were less than ideal times for outdoor sessions. Thanks Felix!”

Alexis M.

“I loved both the Lighting on Location, and Signature Lighting Series. Felix teaches with fun illustrations, and puts things in a way that is easy to learn and understand. I have always wanted to learn these OCF techniques, and now I am able to put it to practice! I would highly recommend them to any photographer looking to grow their Lighting knowledge and enhance their work!”

lindsay s.

“I now own both the lighting and location lighting series but have only had an opportunity to experiment with the latter (and not as much as I’d like). However, I’ve learned more from watching the location lighting series than I have from any of the other tutorial videos that I’ve thrown money at over the years (including creative live’s window light challenge with Felix and Sue Bryce). I’ve tried applying Felix’s techniques with a speedlite and with an Elinchrom elb-500 and I feel so much more in control compared with my previous efforts using strobes which were very hit or miss. Now I just need to practice!”

William B.

“I already owned Felix's other course: 'The Lighting Series' with Sue Bryce and learned so much of that course. As I was planning some location shoots in the near future I didn't hesitate and bought this one as well. I was not disappointed at all!!.... It has helped me understand my lighting even better, and has helped me with my lighting on a location I was just a week ago. Felix knows how to explain things in a way it is very easy to understand. No math..., no difficult stuff, just clear language and easy to understand methods to setup your lighting whenever you are on location. Next week I am doing a shoot and probably it wil be out in the sun with harsh daylight, but with the lessons I learned in this course I am confident to pull off some great shots and enjoy my shoot. Thank you Felix for this amazing course and being the wonderful teacher you are!”

Peter R.

“I purchased The Location Series because I’m owning Felixe’s The Lighting Series witch has helped me hugely and was perhaps one of the best investments I did for my self as photographer. Now it’s time to expand my skills and take my photography outdoors, so getting The Location Series was a no brainer. I love it just as much and I can’t wait to apply all tips I’ve learned from Felix! He is a true master of light and it’s a blessing to have an opportunity to learn from him!!!”

Irina J.

“I purchased the The Location Lighting Series because I was tired of showing up to shoots and being afraid of the available lighting. As an event and portrait photographer, more often than not, the lighting conditions on location are less than ideal. I used to see dark, high ceilings or walls, tungsten or mixed lighting, and instantly go into panic mode. I wanted to have control over what I was creating instead of turning in substandard client work. I used to feel like I couldn’t call myself a true professional. The series has given me the confidence to walk into any scenario and create great lighting instead of being at the mercy of available light. For someone who didn’t pick up a camera until a few years ago, this simple, straightforward course was the best education I’ve ever invested in.”

Stephanie J.

“Felix is a wonderful teacher and makes understanding how lighting works easy for a non technical person like myself!”

jennifer g.

“I love it when a teacher is able to simplify complex concepts. Felix makes it super intuitive to work with ambient and strobe light, and showing you how to get to the final image. Exactly what I needed. You won't need another location shooting course after you get this one.”

Alessia D.

“The way Felix teaches photography is easy to understand and made me have very satisfying results when I changed my 'habits'. Felix is a brilliant teacher and if you see him in the videos you don't come around to like him!”

Birgit J.

“I love how Felix teaches; everything is so matter of fact and simplified that I don't feel inferior for having the question. As a photographer, we ALL have the questions, right? And even moreso, as you apply these techniques out in real world scenarios with clients, the cost OF the course is paid for in your first sale, and again, and again, and again. It's a no brainer. Give yourself the gift of expanding your knowledge base to create such a dynamic range of imagery for your clientele. A knowledge base that will pay dividends in your capacity to execute AND DELIVER as a Photographer in any given lighting situation. Go now. It'll change everything.”

Cat F.

“I have both classes and highly recommend! I had limited knowledge of studio lighting and Felix breaks it down so simply, and it's not really as complicated as I had thought it was going to be! It's truly a relief to have a real understanding of equipment and techniques and that you can create the looks you want with any price-level of equipment. Initially I got The Lighting Series and learned so much. Then I got the Location Lighting Series, and it has so much more info... it is well worth the investment in your work.”

Tracy H.

“I’ll admit, I was hesitant about purchasing the Location Lighting Series since I already had the Lighting Series, but I’m glad I did. On my latest photo shoot all I used was a speedlight + small diffuser on a bright, sunny day at high noon- and the results I achieved on my photos because of the techniques that Felix teaches we’re on another level. I didn’t have to go out and buy or rent any extra gear- just use what you have. Love this class and the results!”

Ivonne R.

“I just finished watching the entire program, let me tell u, it is worth WAYYYYYYY more than 200. Wayyyyy more. There is so much information and detail that he goes into. Every kind of problem u run into with lighting is pretty much addressed in this series. Hard light from the sun, what to do to get around that, mimicking window light with one flash and a umbrella, there is SO much detail. U will not regret it, I sure as hell don’t! I have a shoot tomorrow that I am going to use these new techniques for. Do yourself a favor and scoop up this series. It will change your lighting game, and your clients WILL love it!”

Matthew G.

“I was waiting for this for a long time. One of the best investments I have made in lighting. I love Felixs style of teaching. He makes the most complex accessible to anyone.”

Kalpana P.

“Love the Series. Very hands on and Felix teaching style is straight forward and very hands on, which I like a lot.”

Philippe S.

“The original Lighting Series and now, the Location Lighting series are simply outstanding. I am a location shooter challenged with a lot of sunshine. Felix does an excellent job demystifying, yet creating beautiful light in any conditions that i might encounter. I’ve not even finished my first run through and I took some new found knowledge to a shoot and elevated the images.”

Tanya M.

“I'm happy to report the this is the ONLY black Friday sale that I took advantage of. Thank you Felix, Sue and The Portrait Masters Team for all of the excellent opportunities to learn and grow.”

Kristen V.

“I purchased the original series after watching Felix working with Sue Bryce to create strobe light that mimicked her natural lighting. I was blown away and it has vastly improved my studio work. This series was a no-brainer decision even without Black Friday pricing. I'm loving it so far, and used what i learned in the first two segments with real clients this past week alone. I'm excited for how rich the images look and they don't have that strobed look to them. I definitely recommend both of Felix's Portrait Master classes to anyone looking to step up their game.”

Gerald A.

“I’m half on the course and I want to tell that a lot of things that after rewatching the lighting series was still nebulous, now are starting to be more clear! It’s strange but it was is happening. The lighting series and lighting on location are both strongly connected and complement each other. I’m really opening my mind and I’m just waiting to be in the studio and restarting again to try and observe. The fact that we can deeply see Felix working on capture one with all the adjustments is another biiiiig add on.”

Walter C.

“Hands on Felix is the best at teaching light. Thank you for another amazing lighting series!”

Mauricio Q.

“Felix Kunze is not only a Master of Light, but an Incredible teacher as well. I have the first lightning series and with it have transformed my own studio work to a level I had been dreaming about. Purchasing The Location Series has already proven just as valuable. A definite must have if you are serious about lighting any subject beautifully in studio or any location you choose. I have to add... I am very happy Felix included the tunnel set up as a bonus. That setup alone really opens ones eyes to understanding the light in such a way to truly See it. Thank you Felix!”

michell s.

“As with the studio series, the Location Lighting series has paid for itself almost immediately. I purchased it the day before a client session on the beach (I'm in south Florida) and by combining elements from two segments (group lighting and shooting backlit) I managed to nail a look that I've struggled with for literally years. As with the previous series I find Felix focuses on the things that matter and doesn't bother with irrelevant and potentially confusing information. I also love that Felix comes across as likeable, genuine and humorous. If I find a tutorial dry and pedantic I just can't watch it no matter how useful the information might be. Highly, highly recommended!”

Allan M.

“Really excited to learn location lighting as lately a lot of my work has taken me out of my studio and into office and outdoor spaces for personal branding work. Can't wait to dive in deeper! Thank you Felix and team!”

Tina L.

“I couldn’t be more excited for this series! Thank you Felix!”
