Workshop Info




Travis started in the industry 23 years ago, and having worked his way up from the bottom, he knows how to stay on the cutting edge. He currently serves as President of the Professional Photographers of Idaho chapter of PPA.  When Travis isn’t at a shoot or working the backdrop company Silverlake Photo – that he operates with his wife, Paula, you can find him with students or colleagues.

Travis has been blessed to teach photography workshops and seminars all across the United States and Canada. He has instructed multiple times for After Dark, PPA Imaging, WPPI, Sandy Puc tours and many State and Provincial professional photography groups. His work has been published in books available on Amazon, Rangefinder, and Professional Photographer Magazines. Travis’s style of teaching concentrates on the individual needs of his students, so he loves to spend time talking with other photographers to better understand the complex problems of today’s studios. His travels and time with Silverlake have put him in contact with photographers from around the world and allowed him to get a feel for the pulse of the photo industry in the broad spectrum, from beginning photographers to established studios. 

Travis Gadsby doesn’t just do High School Senior photography – he does it with style!  Specializing in senior portraits with impact, Travis and his team put a lot of time and effort into developing new products, new backdrops and marketing campaigns that consistently make the senior market take notice.
