NRCTC offers a portraiture photography classes

New River Community and Technical College is offering a two-day Portraiture Photography class Monday, Sept. 12 and Sept. 26, at the Raleigh County Campus, Beaver, and Sept. 20 and 22 at the Greenbrier Valley Campus, Lewisburg. Both classes will be from 5-9 p.m.
The classes will be taught by Mark Romano, owner of Images by Romano, which houses the largest private portrait park in West Virginia, specializing in high school senior portraits and offering photography courses. Romano has published many pictorial books, such as the acclaimed “Brooks Run: We Mine Coal” and “Heroes Among Us” for the WV Veterans Legacy project. He served as photographer and videographer for the Josh Stewart movie, “The Hunted,” and his coal photo exhibit has been on display at Tamarack: The Best of West Virginia. He has received awards from Professional Photographers of America and Professional Photographers of West Virginia for his work. Recently, Romano published “History of Webster County High School – 1974-2015,” and pictorials for Richwood, Cowen and Nicholas County high schools in West Virginia. He has photographed tens of thousands of models and will be showing the class trade secrets of lighting, posing and selling pictures.
Pre-registration is required by Sept. 7 for the Raleigh County Campus and Sept. 15 for the Greenbrier Valley Campus. The cost is $125.
New River CTC will also be offering Scenic Photography in October in Beaver and Lewisburg.
