SUNDANCE, Utah,--July 15, 2008--­Renowned, award-winning photographers Bobbi Lane and Tony Sweet will serve as instructors at the Sundance Photographic Workshops, August 25-29, 2008, at the Sundance Resort, Utah.

World-class commercial photographer Bobbi Lane specializes in creative portraits on location and in the studio. Her course, "Portraits on Location," provides an opportunity for students to explore the diverse elements of successful portraiture--working with natural light and strobes, studio or portable flash, and photographing models using locations for composition and story-telling. Lighting is crucial to a successful photo and she will cover lighting patterns, quality and lighting ratios.

Jazz performer turned world-famous nature photographer Tony Sweet, conducts a workshop entitled "Exploring Your Personal Vision." The class meets daily for a sunrise photo shoot (weather permitting) followed by a session to process and critique images. The improvisational, spontaneous and abstract nature of jazz, are also integral elements of nature photography. The day will end with a late afternoon/sunset shooting session. Class time will include a presentation, critique session and a review of digital workflow information.

The Sundance Photographic Workshops are held at the Sundance Resort, the artistic, cultural and recreational community founded in 1969 by actor Robert Redford. The resort was recently voted #2 in the top 50 Mainland U.S. resorts by Condé Nast Traveler and #1 among mountain resorts. It also served as the original home for the renowned Sundance Film Festival before its growing fame dictated its relocation to nearby Park City.

Nestled discreetly in the foothills of Mt. Timpanogos, the Sundance Resort is crafted to preserve the area's breathtaking, rich environment, while providing world-class accommodations for Workshop participants.

The resort's relaxing, picturesque setting offers the ideal-as well as inspirational-backdrop for the Sundance Photographic Workshops. Classes are held in Sundance's spacious function suites, as well as in field excursions to capture outdoor, environmental portrait and once in a lifetime photographic opportunities. Small class sizes enable numerous opportunities for one-on-one instruction and daily courses are complemented with after-dinner presentations of instructor and student photo portfolios.
