Portrait and Studio Photography Course

Our Portrait and Studio Lighting photography course will teach you how to master studio and natural light for beautiful portrait sessions. No prior studio experience is necessary although a basic understanding of exposure and how to operate your camera is required.

This course will allow you to get the very best from your portrait photography creatively, emotionally and technically.You will learn how to get the most from your subject using posing techniques, natural light and basic studio lighting, so you can be creative in any environment.

We will then practice the techniques and ideas we have learned and end up attempting to recreate one of the images we have studied.

Highly enjoyable one day course with plenty of hands-on practice shooting portraits outdoors and in our studio.
