Is this course for me?

This masterclass is perfect for portrait photographers of all abilities who want to improve and develop their skills. During this workshop, you’ll learn how to unleash the potential of your flashgun off camera on location, with the use of a professional model. The workshop will involve outdoor and indoor practical sessions.
In a practical and creative environment, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from the best at Photoion Photography School. Our workshops are limited to small groups so you can learn in a fast paced setting and gain confidence in this area. Once you’ve mastered one speedlite you’ll be able to move on to two and even three or more, to create dramatic images worthy of a professional portfolio.

All you need is a basic knowledge of camera settings including aperture, shutter speed, camera lenses and ISO including exposure modes. If you’re a photography novice but would still like to take part in this workshop, we recommend completing one of our Beginner Courses or Workshops first.
Participants will also need to use a digital SLR camera or a professional compact camera with manual exposure. Don’t worry if you don’t own a suitable camera, as you can hire one off us on the day of your course. Please let us know in advance if you need to borrow our equipment so we can make sure we have it ready for you.
You are welcome to bring your own speedlite and equipment for the workshop, but again we are happy to provide these for all participants. We’ll bring a number of speedlites for the set up, and also provide radio wireless flash triggers. Please note for Sony Alpha users we can also provide a hot shoe adaptor to connect cameras to the flash transmitter.
