The one thing many talented shooters struggle with is increasing their visibility. Building a body of work is a huge challenge, yet obtaining the necessary eyeballs to keep the dream alive is an even greater struggle. But RGG EDU is trying to change that. Today, they’ve opened the wraps on their latest tutorial, Portraiture with Sandro Miller, as well as one of the biggest portrait photography contests of the year, designed to help take your photography career to the next level.

Sandro has been capturing poses for over 30 years, and during that span, he’s built with a trophy case with accolades bursting out its hinges. Portraiture with Sandro takes things to an all new level covering all aspects of his process and workflow from preparation, equipment, lighting, to post production. In the lessons, RGG EDU follows Sandro in a full-length feature from his Chicago studio all the way to Papua New Guinea with a digital tech to capture portraits of the locals. You can see Sandro in his natural element and his methodology on how he approaches his image making. RGG also explores his printing process, Capture One, and image post processing with award winning retoucher, Pratik Naik. After completion, students should have a better understanding and a new drive for perfecting their craft.

In addition to getting up close and personal with Sandro, The RGG EDU Portrait Contest can change your career by being the catalyst you need to catapult your work to stardom. In addition to visibility, the winner will take home over $50,000 in prizes and have their work published in print in our very own Resource Magazine. For the full list of prizes, rules, and entry instructions, visit RGG EDU.
