Is this course for me?

In the intimate small group environment, you will allow your creativity and imagination to reveal itself in order to find the perfect portrait photograph.
The workshop will take place partly outdoors and partly indoors with a model for you to photograph. Our highly skilled professionals will teach you the important elements of portrait photography to allow you to create more adventurous and unique work independently.

To get the most out of this intensive workshop, you’ll need a basic understanding of camera lenses, aperture, shutter speed and ISO including exposure modes. If you have never used a professional camera before you may want to take our Beginners Workshop to get up to speed.

You’ll also be required to have a digital SLR or professional compact camera with full manual exposure. But don’t worry if you don’t own a camera or the accessories – you are welcome to borrow one for the workshop free of charge – please just let us know in advance you will need equipment.
