"Craig Lamere is the real deal. If you want to learn from an expert on lighting and fashion. Craig is the perfect choice. Craig's badass attitude, skills and genuine love of teaching and sharing show through as he works and interacts with his students. I highly recommend taking any opportunity you have to study with him!"
Paul Duke Jr. - Owner, PdPhotography - York, Pennsylvania
"I flew clear across the country to learn from Craig and I'm glad I did! His method of breaking down good photography into a simplistic and understandable form has boosted my photography skills beyond measure. My photography stands out in my market because of what I learned from Craig."
"Set aside the mastery you see here with lighting or posing, Craig Lamere's secret sauce is in the way he teaches; from his heart. He inspires a sense of excitement and exploration in all his students to be the very best photographer you can be."
Erin Clark Zahradka - Founder of www.AIBPhotog.com - Boulder, Colorado
"Our first retreat, in Ojai, CA, and Craig LaMere was a highly requested speaker.
Craig did something that not all great speakers can do... He organically related to each and every one of the retreat attendees. By making himself available to our attendees before, during, and after his "four hour time" allotment for instruction, the retreat members not only made a lifelong friend in Craig - but I am also aware of several incidences, where his instruction / knowledge / natural confidence-building and positive energy… have been a life-saver for both studios AND personal lives alike, in the AIBP community and beyond.
Craig is an excellent HUGGER, an excellent confidant, an authentic spiritual essence of our boudoir community - and the industry. He is brand-savvy, an expert at anything-cameras, an artist through and through with his breathtaking work, and the best part of this all… Craig LaMere still has time for us little guys… who "just want to be like Craig when we grow up.”
I look forward to having Craig at the Fourth Annual AIBP Retreat, I look forward to continuing our very-rewarding and comforting friendship behind the scenes and I know I can speak for hundreds (if not thousands) of other photographers in that, if I had to choose just one photographer to shoot MY boudoir images in the near future - it would most definitely be… Craig."

"Craig LaMere took my business to the next level with his OCF lighting class. I had struggled to find confidence with indoor lighting and posing for indoor lighting. Craig’s class pushed me into a new understanding of all of these issues. He simply, clearly, and masterfully explained exactly how to execute a vast array of lighting techniques. His two-day class changed the way I shoot. He is personable, hilarious, and a true master in the art of photography and lighting. I consider myself lucky to have learned from one of the true photography greats!"
Marlene Botta - Owner, Daring Dames Photography - New York, New York
"My first group workshop as a new photographer fresh out of Photography school was in NYC with Craig Lamere. That one day workshop not only gave me some great images for my portfolio but truly taught me the tips and tricks that youn cant learn in a classroom."
Danny Douglas - Owner, Danny Douglas Photography - Temple Hills, Maryland
"I had the pleasure of mentoring with Craig over the last few year. From setting the scene to lighting and posing the subject, Craig's insight has been priceless!"
Toni Shaw - Owner, Shaw Photography Group - Altamahaw, North Carolina
"I have taken classes that Craig has taught and the amount of information that I learned from him cannot be measured. He’s down to earth, he teaches realistic no nonsense photography and I want to go back for more!!!"
Amy Short - Owner, Amy Kristin Photography - Wakefield, Rhode Island
"I've loved Craig LaMere's work since I first saw it. His use of light is beautiful. At the in-person workshop I attended, it was super helpful to see Craig explain single and multiple light setups and also use different modifiers, and we all got hands on experience with what he demonstrated. Beyond the lighting setups, I was also super impressed with the posing and styling tips he provided, and I learned a whole lot about Photoshop from Craig."
Marcin Wyszogrodzki - Owner, Vyszo Photography - Kalaheo, Hawaii
"Craig is a GREAT teacher, easy to talk to and had alot of enthusiasm toward instruction. He made all participants feel comfortable and was more than willing to share his knowledge and creativity. I had a lot of fun, learned a lot, if you'd like to step up your game, i would really recommend his workshops!"
