The Cordless Studio

M. Photog., Cr.

Is it possible to completely “cut the cord” in the studio? Michael Mowbray says “Absolutely!”. Michael’s successful Wisconsin-based portrait studio has been completely cordless since 2009. As a follow up to his bestselling book “The Speedlight Studio” and program of the same name, “The Cordless Studio” will cover recent advances in more powerful battery-powered strobes that not only make location work easier but also can be considered total replacements for AC strobes altogether. Michael will review the options that are out there, discuss best practices, show examples, and demonstrate the capabilities of today’s battery-powered super flashes.

Thank you to our sponsor!

Michael is the author of the popular photography books Shoot to Thrill and The Speedlight Studio (Amherst Media). He is in demand on the speaking circuit with his programs on Senior Portraits, Headshots, Lighting, and Business.
