Portrait Photography Workshop

Following the success of my previous courses, i have bowed to pressure and decided to offer a Location Portrait Photography Workshop here in East Sussex.

My award winning style is very creative but relaxed, with all of the portraits shared on my website created without from any formal studio and almost all using natural light sources. The aim of the course is to teach attendees some of the skills i use to produce stunning portraits for my clients with the minimum of fuss and kit.

Starting here with a close up look at my work and style over refreshments, i will outline my strategies and techniques for creating timeless images way above anything the person with his/her new camera can even dream of. Everything is kept simple and straight forward and is shared in a relaxed environment so no one should feel out of place, regardless of where they are with their photography.

I will explain the use and quality of light, correct exposure, posture and posing as well as how to work quickly and how to keep clients relaxed

Then we will go on location (whatever the weather) with our “non model” clients for a portrait session. At the location i will walk you through what i am trying to achieve with the hows and whys in terms of lighting, exposure, camera settings, location, backgrounds etc. As we go on, you will have lots of opportunities to shoot your own images using our subjects and all the time i will be on hand of to offer advice and answer questions etc. At the end of the afternoon you should have a full portrait session to use as part of your portfolio of work.

Once the shoot is complete we then head back here for more refreshments and discuss anything that has arisen from the session.

I prefer an open approach so i’m always open to questions as we go, or at a later date, as the aim of the course is to ensure everyone attending learns from their investment. Far too many training course on offer these days are little more than a money making exercise for the “tutor” and have little regard for the clients (you).


When and Where etc:

Sunday 18th September in Polegate, East Sussex. (11.00am until 4pm).

Maximum of 6 attendees.

Refreshments included.

Price £145.00 per person (or £250 for two attendees from same business).

Please Bring:

Your camera kit, a notebook and suitable clothing as we will be shooting regardless of the weather. I do have a few local locations that i can use whatever the circumstances.
