Time & Location

About The Event

This is a Portfolio Building Workshop.

We will be utilising the area around Whitely Business district. Meeting near to Dominos Pizza. The area is filled with natural greenery, trees and lakes. However, it is also filled with lots of buildings, that can be used to add dimention to your images. 

From start to finish, we will be looking at natural light, and improvised lighting situations (to include reflectors, LEDs, flashguns and my monolight setup).

This is going to be a very popular Workshop and I imagine tickets will sell fast. If I fill this event, I may get a second model, so we can all split up and get images.

This workshop will start at 12:00pm and will finish around 4:00pm. This is only open to 10 people. The ticket price is £75 per person.

What's included;

  • Posing - the ABC's of posing and how you can get the best shots out of each one of your clients.
  • Lighting - how to use lighting and more importantly, WHEN to use it. Subjects covered will include; natural lighting, off camera flash, and on camera flash.
  • Shooting - how to get the right exposure in different shooting environments. How to shoot in complete manual including your flash! How to set your composition to include the essentials and leave out the non-essentials.
  • Tuition and guidance provided throughout the event, on both a one to one and group basis, to maximise your potential. In other words, there is something for everyone to be able to do based on their respective skill level. Enough to help the newer photographers without boring the more experienced ones...:)
  • Throughout the workshop, I will CC on your images.
  • You leave with full understanding of the settings used and have the ability to replicate the same elsewhere. 

Essential Gear;

  • Camera and lenses - doesn't matter what you have. I can work with most camera manufacturers (I use Canon and Sony - So I will know more about them). If you have a portrait lens (something from 50mm, 70mm up to 200mm), that would be beneficial. 

Non Essential Gear;

  • Lighting - I will be bringing a range of lighting, so don't feel light you have to. But if you have anything from on-camera flash to mono-lights, please bring them along.
  • Please bring all of the other gear you have including monopods, tripods, reflectors, flashes, etc. and plenty of batteries. Also make sure to charge all of your gear 100% prior to the shoot so you don't end up running out. Make sure to clear your memory cards and have at least 16GB available to shoot with. I personally recommend even more if you can. I will encourage you to shoot in RAW so having the appropriate amount of memory is very important.

Parking is free for 2 hours, so I sugest parking on the main road, so you do not need to move your car.

Please bring snacks and bottled water as many of the places we go will not have any services available for food and beverage.
