PERRYSBURG TOWNSHIP, OH – Area residents and photographers interested in learning about technical aspects of producing exceptional wedding photography with available lighting are invited to participate in a hands-on workshop featuring internationally recognized wedding photographers Michael and Pam Ayers at Owens Community College on Wednesday, June 8.

Presented by the Professional Photographers of Northwest Ohio and the Owens Photo Club student organization, the workshop is titled “Fast and Spectacular Bridal Portraits with Available Light” and will take place from 6:30-9:30 p.m. in the College’s Center for Fine and Performing Arts Studio Theatre and Rotunda on the Toledo-area Campus. The event is open to the public and attendees should bring their own cameras and appropriate lenses for the event.

“Owens Community College is honored to once again collaborate with the Professional Photographers of Northwest Ohio and present a hands-on workshop for photographers of all skill levels,” said Margaret Lockwood-Lass, Owens Adjunct Instructor of Fine and Performing Arts and Co-Advisor of the Owens Photo Club. “Both Michael and Pam Ayers are leaders within wedding photography and have garnered several international and national awards for their exceptional work. Workshop attendees will certainly not be disappointed with the knowledge and insight they will receive from arguably some of the finest professional photographers.”

“We are very fortunate to have Michael and Pam Ayers sharing their time and masterful talents specific to wedding photography,” said Fred Eldridge, President of Professional Photographers of Northwest Ohio and Owner of Eldridge Images. “Their insight during the workshop will certainly help photographers take their wedding photography skills to a higher level.”
