Events for Photographers
Masterclass Workshops (including those with a makeup artist) :
A constructed event covering a specific subject(s) please read our T’s and C’s
These are 6 photographers and 1 model, starting at 10am and finishing at 4pm with 1 hour lunch – our provided lunches are legendary, read our recommendations!
Depending on the subject, we’ll use the studio, local locations, my property where we have proper bedrooms, large dining room and various stairways and corridors to use, plus a real bar (not open to drinking alcohol)! Our studio is 40sq.mtrs and contains all the lighting and accessories you could wish for! After registration, approx 21 days before the event you’ll receive a PayPal request for £55 deposit, the balance is to be paid cash on the day.
- Our Masterclass Workshops for Photographers cover a wide variety of subjects and techniques including re-touching
- I don’t offer workshops in anything that I’m not fully conversant with
- read about my experience – visit my own website
- We all do better with hands-on experience and that’s what we concentrate on
- suitable for all levels of experience via various Workshops.
- initial intro and demonstrations (where needed)
- we encourage you to progress with practical work
- we provide timed one2one’s with our model to enable you to get personal images – which we realise is a very important factor, you don’t want identical images to everyone else on the workshop, you want your own!
- on workshops with a makeup artist, our mua will arrive at lunchtime and start the makeup while we’re having our break, while they are finishing we’ll do some re-touching demonstrations too.
Technical knowledge is important, but, does technical ability alone make you a good photographer? Or is there more to it? Atmospheric content is the overriding selling factor in any image, so practical guidance from someone who knows how to accomplish this, who is known for it and has been doing it for years, is by far the best way forward.
How many other courses do you see making this statement? Very, very few – if any! They will give you an impressive list of technical things that they teach and these lists are getting longer and longer, but it’s just expanded technical jargon, there is no way of teaching the x-factor effect unless you have that ability yourself and a proven track record in photography.
When I started photography I knew nothing and had no-one to ask – so I had to learn what I needed, when I needed it, quickly! Consequently, I find that I thought about the appeal or x-factor of the image before anything else – so the technicalities went on in the background. I did things this way because I had no choice, I was thrown in at the deep end read my bio – but I can help most people achieve this who have some natural ability!
There’s a list of workshops on the menu.
I’m not God with a camera and there are better photographers, however I have been a successful professional photographer for 36 years so I have some tips and tricks to offer, don’t take my word for it – look me up in Google for yourself. Now I’m enjoying myself assisting others to do what I do.
