Lumesca Event with Gavin Hoey


Gavin will share exclusive insights into his best practices during a portrait photoshoot, as well as his editing techniques to achieve professional results. He will demonstrate how to shoot tethered with Tether Tools and explain his use of lighting with the help of modellers, gels and shooting with speedlights and Elinchrom studio lighting setups. He will also guide viewers on how to use an X-Rite ColorChecker photo chart to ensure accurate colour representation and easier post-production workflow. Naturally, Gavin will then guide you through the tools and techniques he uses to help make your post-processing quick and consistent, including a demonstration of the 2K BenQ SW270C monitor for photographers.

Gavin Hoey is a freelance photographer, Olympus UK ambassador and trainer of all things photographic. Primarily focusing on photography education, he started out writing for photography magazines such as Practical Photography and Digital Photo which eventually led to making video tutorials for magazine cover discs. An early YouTube adopter, Gavin created a popular photography training channel before joining forces with the New York camera store, Adorama in 2012. He is now the most-watched presenter on Adorama TV where his videos focus on the art of lighting and portraits.
