He is a dynamic, fascinating presenter

Alan Shapiro‘s work is inspirational. And aspirational. He is a dynamic, fascinating presenter. He is very generous with explaining how to set up the home studio, what lighting to use and why, product and resource lists. And it’s fun while you are learning! Bingo!

They opened a new horizon for me

I thoroughly enjoyed both of my Visual Wilderness Online Classes. They opened a new horizon for me and built on the knowledge I already have. I’m glad I have access to them for a year as I still have much to absorb…doesn’t happen all at once :)))

Alan grew up on the creative side of the advertising world, working with clients around the world; telling their unique stories in very unique ways.

Along the way, he had the pleasure of working with many, many talented photographers, directors and content creators. He became envious of their art and craft. At first, he saw it as a means of reducing his stress-filled life. As a Chief Creative Officer at the world’s largest Advertising Agency Network, he needed a distraction. A friend gave him a camera. Then he bought another. And then another. His new hobby and daily “creative exercise regimen” quickly turned into a joy-filled and all-consuming passion. Then, his first photo client called. Then another. And then, many more.

His work can be seen throughout the entire hospital set on ABC’s The Good Doctor, in the launch campaigns for the Apple iPhone as well as Cadillac, OnStar, Lockheed Martin, Scholastic and numerous others. His work fills entire walls in Bose stores and Ritz Carlton Hotels worldwide in addition to hanging in numerous private and corporate art collections. His macro, food and still life work can be seen in countless editorial publications as well as featured on products from housewares to clothing to puzzles.

As much as Alan loves creating images, he genuinely loves to teach; sharing his workflow from capture through post-processing and printing. He is a super high-energy instructor with a knack for getting people out of their comfort zone as well as helping them discover and capture beautifully simple things in beautifully unexpected ways.

Alan is the author of Moments in the Monochrome Garden, Another Day, and Beautiful Walls (To Bang Your Head Against). His fourth book, Trippin’ in the Garden on Miracle-Gro will be out eventually but Alan is currently dealing with an acute case of perfection paralysis.
