Miguel Quiles workshop

Speaker Spotlight: Miguel Quiles

“Each new day presents another opportunity to create something that’s uniquely yours. The world awaits your results.” - Miguel Quiles


Miguel Quiles is a New Jersey-based commercial wedding and portrait photographer. Miguel spoke at last year’s Pixel Photo Fest, and the response was so positive that we had to bring him back for a second year! Get to know Miguel before seeing him speak at our 2019 Pixel Photo Fest.

Miguel has been involved in the industry for over 15 years. He started off as a salesman at a local camera store and taught himself photography through trial and error. Since then, Miguel has been refining his skills and pushing the limits of his creative abilities. 

As a self-taught photographer, Miguel hopes to share his experience and knowledge with new and upcoming photographers who wish to take their work to the next level.

Miguel is a leading voice as a blogger and contributor for RangeFinder Magazine & SLR Lounge. However, he’s more well known as a Profoto Legend of Light and a Sony Artisan.

Miguel’s classes:

One Light is Alright! 

In this session, Miguel will show the power of lighting portraits using only one light. Learning this exercise early in his career set him up for a lifetime of successful photo shoots. This is a can’t-miss session for photographers interested in off-camera lighting.

Offsite Engagement Session Workshop

Miguel will share tips and tricks for getting dramatic, powerful portraits of couple! This workshop will give you the knowledge and confidence to take your next engagement session like a pro with years of experience!

Simple Studio Lighting

Miguel will walk through some basic setups you can utilize no matter how big or small a space you have. These are the time-tested techniques that he’s used as he transitioned from his small, living room studio to his professional studio in New Jersey. You’ll learn the easiest and best ways to set up your lights, along with some clever tips on posing, camera settings, and more.
