No Studio, No Problem
Within 1 year Dylan went from being a struggling actor/bar tender to a full time portrait photographer without ever using a studio. Managing natural light outside can be difficult but Dylan's lighting style brings the benefits of studio lighting out on location. 
Learn About The Gear
Dylan has simplified his bag of gear into just 1 camera, 1 lens,  2 speedlights, 1 reflector, and 2 modifiers. Photographers on any budget will be able to easily afford the equipment necessary to shoot similar images. 
Learn How To Light
Dylan's photography isn't about expensive gear, it's about the knowledge of how to use what you have. In this tutorial you will learn how to light in ideal lighting situations, extremely harsh lighting situations, and even at night. Dylan's techniques will help you produce repeatable results in any location at any time of day. 
Learn How To Edit
50% of Dylan's signature look can be attributed to his coaching and lighting, the other 50% comes from his post production. This tutorial includes 4 different RAW files that you can use to follow along with Dylan as he works. After following along in Photoshop for over 3 hours with Dylan, you'll know everything necessary to edit your portraits at a world class level.

I've been hoping to build a similar portfolio next year (real estate, architecture, interiors, headshots) after a move to Boston. This purchase, along with Mike Kelley's Fstopper Original, makes it a perfect 1-2 punch for me -- a guy on a budget who doesn't have studio space or the money to buy Kino Flos. Thank you!

Awesome Ian! If you need anything don't hesitate and thank you so much!

I purchased this and am halfway through the first video. Very thorough so far. One question though, it says to visit fstoppers.com/DylanPatrickGear to see the gear you use. However, the page says "Access Denied".

We are still putting the final touches on that page. It should be live tomorrow

Thanks Dylan !

Looks so cool!!! Just when i saw the images for the first time I knew I would love to learn how to shoot like this! But then I saw the price... I can't justify paying that much money on it :/ just a poor college student hahaha :p I will have to try with what I already know!
Keep on producing high quality content and 1 day I will have the money to buy them :-D
