Rick and Katja Wright
Boudoir l High Fashion
Rick and Katja Wright’s teaching style is very hands on! They’d rather show you how to get great results, than talk about them. As a participant in their classes, you can expect live demonstrations and time to practice the techniques yourself with live models and their guidance. Their goal is to help you develop a stronger skill set so you can create stunning images for your portfolio/online galleries as well as clients.
Their love for Photography started with chasing sunsets with their 35mm SLR film cameras shortly after meeting at the University of Wisconsin in the late 90s. By 2012 their passion for portraits led to leaving their corporate careers to create Iris Imprints Photography, Inc. Boudoir quickly became their genre of choice as they realized how empowering and transformative the experience they provide is to their clients. Iris Boudoir was born.
Rick and Katja are both internationally published. His specialties include: advanced lighting techniques, composition and posing. Rick is also a Gear-head who loves keeping up on advancements in tech and trying out new equipment and techniques. Katja excels at styling, advanced posing techniques, editing and retouching. A key to their success is helping clients feel comfortable in front of the lens. That connection helps capture natural expressions and the personality of each subject. They’re a solid team, complimenting each other’s strengths and weaknesses. Together, they create stunning images that capture each client’s confidence, personality and beauty. Their goal with each client is always the same – to exceed expectations every time!
They teach throughout the year in hands-on workshops where they share what they’ve learned and perfected over the years. Last year they taught over 30 workshops in Milwaukee, St Louis, Chicago and Antioch, IL. Their workshop and class attendees describe learning from the Wrights as, “fun, informative & inspiring” and the atmosphere as, “warm & welcoming.”
