You will be photographing models (and each other) learning how to pose the models with various props to achieve glamorous, elegant images. We use models who are engaging and attractive with a natural affinity to the camera. Learn to shoot for boudoir, corporate, casual and formal scenarios incorporating a range of different styles and photographic techniques to bring out the models natural flair and beauty.

Learn 'tools of the trade' - what you need to know about camera gear and accessories for high quality, punchy portraiture. We cover how to use your camera gear, all about studio lighting including mixing strobe, tungsten and available light and the golden rules of composition. Practical demonstrations train your eye, to ‘paint’ light onto a subject, how to select the right lens and use of aperture and shutter speed to control the creative process.

We also offer a 'still life' session, discuss digital workflow and post-production. There's intuitive instruction on lighting and composition along with everything from exposure control to white balance, from ISO settings to focus options.

This full 7 hour day course will appeal to those want a fully comprehensive, intensive training experience both for their individual photographic development and for those employed in business sectors where they need to learn how to shoot product, individual and groups without spending a fortune.
