This full day, small group workshop will provide plenty of time for soaking up new tips, and getting one-on-one help in specific areas of concern.

Start the new year with a dramatic improvement in your work.

Separate yourself from the pack

By mastering studio photography, you will be able to work in new areas:

Through improved lighting and digital finishing methods, you'll be able to give your work that commercial edge, that extra sparkle and interest to set yourself apart from the rest.

You'll learn how to improve your demeanour with your subject clients, giving them a far more positive and affirming experience in the photoshoot, so you can start getting rave testimonials like never before.

You will also come away from the day with some brilliant new portfolio content for your social media.

Workshop content

This boot-camp style workshop will take you through a series of exercises that will improve your skills through practical experience with the methods and equipment.

PART 1: Studio lighting, from basics to creating sculptural, flattering lighting and atmosphere.

PART 2: How to build your subject's confidence all through the shoot, with authoritative posing direction and subtle affirmation.

PART 3: Working with makeup artists and creative teams for more ambitious projects.

PART 4: Digital editing and workflow.

The sections are a mix of short presentations and long practical shooting sessions, with the majority of the day devoted to hands-on experience and practical tasks. There will also be an open practice shooting session at the end of the day.

There will be a break in the middle of the day, with lunch provided.
