    A full day with

    Arthur Levi Rainville, M.Photog., Cr., CPP, API 

    There’s so much more to you.  Hidden secrets waiting for their awakening… to make authentic work, take your efforts to a unique, marketable niche.  Join our profession’s resident sage, Arthur Levi Rainville for a program unlike any other.  Yes, you need the classical skills of lighting, posing, composing, the contemporary marketing and business essentials.  But to grow to a place that you can tout as your own, rise above the masses, please yourself…you need to journey within.

    Arthur has been touting the Art & Heart message for 50 years to image makers across the country.  But everything that’s old is new again… he’ll trot out an un-state-of-the-art approach to creating that the world can’t do on their cell phones. He’ll share thoughts from his forthcoming book; KenZen – the Art of Reflective Creating…innovative concepts for making more personal, rarified work.  From Primal Aesthetics to soul-searching connectivity skills, he will share an array of neo-digital era impressions. We will delve into the realm of IsolationismPith RealismSuggestivismand Invisibilism…all will add an eloquent dimension to any photography.  In live sessions, Arthur will explore the alchemy of Sfumato atmospheric lighting, the soul of Tenebrism, and the later sophistication of Tonalism.  And he’ll demonstrate the photojournalistic dégagé approach of subject connection.  Emotional highs, shaking lows, this program will charge your creative spirit like no other.

    In the After-Glow session, Arthur will engage us in a Question/Answer Push-Me-Pull-You of ideas that are relevant, meaningful to just you.  Be Prepared !  You WILL leave this day changed forever.
