The Los Angels Photography School is excited to have a Day in the Studio with Professional Photographer Dove Shore ( www.doveshore.com) .   This is a one day photography workshop in Los Angeles that only happened 4 times a year.

Have you ever looked at an image in a magazine, a movie poster or an advertisement and wondered how the photographer achieved that lighting? Well in this class you will find out how it was done.
