Boudoir Workshops in Hampshire
One of the biggest leaps you can make as a beginner Portrait or Boudoir photographer is taking control of your lighting. It can be daunting at first, but having that skill down is well worth the time and effort.
Natural light, especially indoors, can be very hard to master and bend. There are many ways you can utilise the available light from a window or open door. But if you want to achieve something magical - it is worth investing in some speedlight and learning to use them effectively.
Introducing flash techniques to your photography doesn’t only mean more light. It also means more exposure options, control, and complications. But it also opens up whole new areas of photography, allowing you to advance your skills.
My Workshops are designed to help you master lighting, predict and overcome any complications and learn a lot of transferable skills for you to take to any other photo shoot.

See the Studio (Rocco Farm)
Exclusive use of this Home Studio in a quiet location, based in Hampshire, near to Basingstoke.
This room is one of the triumphs of the house. This is a large light airy room with beautiful old original oak floor boards (the wide kind), a stone fireplace, large mirror and white paneling. The main feature of the room is the bed. Rococo Farm gets its name from my Rococo purple and gold super king bed. Referred to as 'Delilah' she is Jenni's pride and joy and there is no other like her in the country. There is now the edition of 'Sammy' a beautiful champagne and gold chaise longue.
A brilliantly flexible room where the shooting options are endless. This room boasts a large window, red leather chesterfield and an original red brick fireplace. You also have 2 large bookcases with old fashioned books for the 'library look'. Large natural carpet or lovely red rugs the styling is entirely up to you. You can shoot lifestyle shots in here or interesting art nude in the fireplace, window or on the floors.
There is a large shower and large Jacuzzi bath. The shower is large enough that you can open the door and shower so you can shoot without a screen in the way. There is a window over the bath which gives lovely natural light and amazing images. There is also a beautiful textured old door that gives another interesting area for shooting.
