The quickest way to increase your skills and experience : One2one & two2one assisted events

The less expensive way : Masterclass Workshops

Then come along and practice what you’ve learned, with 2 models! : Portfolio Builders

NEW!!! Three2ones and Four2ones! Put your own team together and let us know what model you want and when! Share the cost! Still only £250 total for 4 hours, includes model, facilities and me!

assisted workshops for any skill level! :

You, your model and myself will put together a series of scenes, sort out the lighting – studio, location (outside and in the house sets) – suggest locations and generally assist you, or you can just tell us what to do – so you can just get on with taking your best images ever! The beauty of a one2one or two2one photography event is that we can tailor the event to suit your needs whilst progressing at a speed that’s suitable to yourself, they’re more intensive than fully attended events because you’re on your own (or just 2 of you)! 

The event would also be tailored to your preferred subject with plenty of pre-event communications to make sure we get it right! My personal speciality is Art Nude : http://mickpayton.co.uk/ but generally anything with people in the frame, we can shoot fashion, gels, glamour, art nude, commercial, editorial, long exposures etc.

Please note : the 4 hour events include a tea/coffee break, the 6 hour events include a break after every 2 hours work. These breaks also serve as re-cap/discussion times as well as helping you to get to know your models personality and preferences. Bring a packed lunch too if you wish, as food is not included. 

Two2one’s three2ones and four2ones –  you and a friend or two share the cost! So it’s you and friends, your chosen model, and me – for the same price as a one2one, eg 4 hours £250, that’s £125 each, all facilities included – see below for more prices.

Reference from Keri Hambly on PurplePort :

Done a few workshops at micks Payton’s studio and each one had a fabulous time and some stunning images. But this time I went for the assisted one 2 one. Hands down one of the best days I have had in a long time.mick is so professional and the ideas he comes up with are just outstanding and you will have so much time to try them. Plus your own stuff with some of the best models out there. Highly recommend can’t wait to book another one!

Read about the day :

You will have seen the subject and styles available for the event when you registered for it, please ask if you want something specific included and I’ll do my best to fit it in. When arranging a scene and lighting I’ll take a couple of successive images to show you how the lighting and model are looking, to ensure your understanding and satisfaction, then you can just get on with taking pictures as quickly as possible. You will always get timed one2one’s with our model(s)I may, if I think it necessary or if I’m asked, do a very quick demonstration to illustrate a point – my policy is to give you as much useful shooting time as I can, ensuring value for money and enjoyable shooting! During coffee breaks or lunch, I may take a couple of pictures for future advertising, this is in mine and the models own break time and does not detract from your time. I allow 3 full days for you to get one or two images to me by tagging me on Facebook, from the images I receive I’ll select some to showcase the event. This showcasing is an important part of our advertising and the success of such is what enables me to get the high standard of models at the price we charge for events. I would far sooner use your images than mine as it’s more representative of what was achieved on the event. By showcasing the images you have taken, it also gives you exposure to my 2,000+ friends and the 2,000 + members of the group page. If I don’t get any image tags by 3 days I’ll use one or two of my own as after 3 days it’s old news. I won’t post to social media until you’ve all had plenty of chance to post your images.

IMAGES : Your model(s) enjoy using your images from the event to promote themselves on social media etc., so it’s up to you to get your images to the model if you want her to use them – it’s not compulsory though. I prefer models to use images that you have taken as this represents the success of the event more accurately and shows other photographers what they can accomplish here. I have no control over who’s images the model chooses, I do encourage them to use yours as this is more beneficial to our advertising and reputation.
