After graduating from MICA in 1978, Harold produced photographic fine art and taught photography at the college level for several years. He opened a studio in 1987, and for almost 30 years, light painting has been the only method of lighting that he's used. (He refers to his process as “Sculpting with Light”)
2011, Harold was invited to participate in an exhibition of landscape photography in Inner Mongolia, China along with 10 other American and 20 Chinese photographers.
He was also chosen as one of four photographers to exhibit in the inaugural FRESH exhibition at Klompching Gallery in Brooklyn, New York.
His large scale color work has been exhibited, collected, and published in the U.S. and internationally in The Royal Photographic Society (The Journal), Photo China Magazine, Progresso Fotografico, Ukraine Photographer, as well as several other European magazines. In the U.S., his work was featured in LensWork #93, LensWork #121, Professional Photographer Magazine, and Digital Photographer, among others. Digital publications include The New York Times LENS, Boing Boing, aCurator, LENSCRATCH, Colossal, Photigy, Luminous Landscape, and more.
Gallery representation: Susan Spiritus Gallery, CA., and High Noon Gallery, Beijing.
Harold lives in Lancaster County, PA, where he produces work and teaches workshops in his process.
Join noted photographer Harold Ross for an information packed presentation on Sculpting with Light, a technique that he has been perfecting for more than 25 years.
Harold will show you how his method of light painting can absolutely transform the ordinary subject into something remarkable.
His lighting technique reveals extraordinary detail, shape, and dimension in his subjects.
Harold will explain what he means by "Sculpting with Light", the advantages of light painting in still life work, his Six Principles of Lighting, and in reviewing some of his work, he will explain how these principles work in practice and he'll show why his process is so trans-formative.
