This past weekend, RRPT led 3 tours photography tours at Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum (TALA). The first tour was a night tour, where the focus was on light painting. The images featured here are from that particular event. We also led two day-light tours, morning and late afternoon. TALA is an amazing place. When you enter, you are transported to the past. The owners are working hard to keep the facility alive and open to the public with photography tours, historical tours, ghost tours, and more. To learn more about TALA, click here.

We are hoping to schedule another night photography session later this year. For more information, join our mailing list by signing up (see the side bar) or by following us on Facebook.

The ladies in this images, Macy and Danielle, were great awesome models! We can’t thank them enough for helping out!! _XT11233-Edit _XT11275-Edit-2_XT11294-Edit_XT11405-Edit_XT11218-Edit


HowToWow Tour with Nikon Ambassador Jerry Ghionis!

Road Runner Photo Tours is proudly sponsoring Jerry Ghionis’ HowToWow Tour. Jerry is a Nikon Ambassador who specializes in portrait, wedding, and boudoir photography.

Jerry will be in the Washington DC area on September 21! The full day program starts at 9am and runs until 8:30pm. An entire day packed with information, tips, and techniques to help build your portrait photography skills!

This is an area of photography that Don and I don’t specialize in, so we are not only sponsoring Jerry’s tour, but are also participating! In one day, Jerry will teach you how to use posing, expression and lighting to effectively transform any location into a perfect shot!

During this tour, Jerry will be sharing his tips and techniques for capturing beautiful portraits in a types of lighting conditions. Jerry will teach you HOW to WOW your clients every time with extraordinary images. Learn Jerry’s method of resourcefully transforming any location and utilizing available light to create timeless pieces. Get in on the action with professional models, all-day tethered shooting, multiple sets, real time problem-solving, tips and templates to market and grow your business.

This workshop is for anyone looking to learn or improve their portrait/wedding photography skills. We are promoting the tour through our Meetup because it is not a skill set we would be able to offer on our own.
