Why I Created This Course

My name is Brian Botos. I’ve been a portrait and studio photographer for over 5 years now in the Cincinnati area and I’ve specialized in Senior, Family, and Newborn Photography.

I remember starting out learning studio lighting and being confused and lost. I spent 100’s of dollars on online education and YouTube videos only to find myself in the same place – on location without any real hands-on experience in front of clients. I failed so many times and now you get to learn from my mistakes.

I have a deep passion for teaching our craft and creating comfortable learning environments for everyone. I will break down step by step how to begin using studio lighting in your workflows and get into details about how and when to use studio lights as a complement to any image.

This intro class is tailored for beginners just like I was several years ago and for you to learn comfortably without the stress of being on location with clients. I can’t wait to teach you my knowledge – it’s going to be fun!

Where are you in your lighting journey?


“I have no idea where to begin with studio lights and they are over whelming.”

“I have strobes and I have no idea how to use them – they just sit in the box.”

“I’m comfortable with using natural light, but the thought of bringing in another light source scares me.”


“I froze in front of a client and went to what I knew best.”

“I have to learn this. I don’t even know how to use a simple strobe light.”

“I see all these amazing images and wonder how they do it – and then I realize it’s with more light than what I have.”

You are in the right place!
