SHOOT ON LOCATION

The workshop is located in the historical market town of Axminster, Devon, only a five minute walk from the nearest train station with direct links to London and Exeter. With beautiful countryside and coastal scenery on our doorstep, you'll have access to a variety of landscapes in which to photograph the model during the workshop (weather permitting).

It was good to meet you on Friday. Thanks for a really useful day, a good lunch and the opportunity to meet and work with your lovely model Lauren.

Both yourself and Lauren work so well together to create a relaxed, informal but productive environment. I appreciated the fact that you took into consideration the correct pace for my learning experience. You were extremely generous with your knowledge of the industry.

I have certainly come away from the workshop with a lot more confidence and am really looking forward now to putting all that I learned into practice at the next special event I am asked to photograph. I have never photographed a model before, but Lauren put me at my ease with her calm and assured nature.

I may well come back to you to reinforce the learning and develop my skills as I progress with my career in events photography.

INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE AND INSIDER TIPS

As a professional photographer, I have extensive experience of shooting both on location and in a studio environment.

You'll learn:

  • How to control the camera manually, with shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance and focusing techniques.

  • How to use studio lighting, including off camera flash, and high-speed sync for a shallow depth of field in bright conditions.
