1-2-1 Photography and editing training
My 1-2-1 training days are tailored to suit what YOU want to learn. You can choose from a variety of subjects including maternity, newborn, child fine art, styled outdoors, pet fine art, composites or editing (Lightroom and Photoshop). I am based in Bournemouth, Dorset and you'd attend your training in my studio (or in the local area to me if you choose outdoors training). As with all of my training my aim is for you to learn how to achieve images which require very little processing (unless your creative flare wants to), I'll be showing you how to set up your camera, camera angles, studio lighting (natural light for outdoors styled shoots), how to interact with your subject to achieve the results you are wanting, how to prep your clients (or parents) for the shoot and how to market, price and sell your finished work. All training days include access to my private Facebook support group. I teach all skill levels from very beginner to advanced. All sessions are individual. If you wish to add post processing to your training day please just let me know when booking. This isn't a problem at all and can usually be added to the last hour of your training day. Lunch and refreshments are provided on the day so please let me know if you have any dietary requirements when booking. I teach very hands on so whether you choose to learn newborn photography or pet photography you will be both posing and shooting on the day.
1-2-1's are priced at £495 or team up with another person to save money! £695
NEWBORN 10-4pm WEEKDAYS
I will cover my initial setup process including session prep, creating natural and organic styling methods, custom white balance, the use of angles and creating depth through the use of shadows, how to safely pose newborns and to refine and perfect each little finger, wrapping techniques, soothing, and parent prep. You can request specific poses you wish to learn which may not be what I personally include in my own flow posing but am able to teach such as the froggy pose, the potato sack etc
Teaching all levels of newborn posing, Facebook marketing, business advise etc The day is totally tailored to you, you choose what you want to learn.
CHILD FINE ART 10-4pm WEEKDAYS
I will cover how to prep for your shoot and what advice I give for clothing etc to achieve the timeless fine art style of images. I will be showing you how to interact to create the beautiful expressions on the children and how to light for beautiful sculptured shadows. At these sessions I always include editing because this is part of achieving the fine art look although you will be pleasantly surprised about how beautiful your images will be in camera. I do not heavily edit but there are some wonderful final touches you will easily be able to add to your work. Facebook marketing, business advise etc The day is totally tailored to you, you choose what you want to learn. I also include how market and sell wall art from your session.
MATERNITY 10-4pm WEEKDAYS
If you love photographing newborns then learning maternity photography is a must. This will bring your clients to you prior to even thinking about booking for their newborn shoot and you will then have the chance to bond with your customer which in turn leads to a more relaxed newborn session. I will be teaching both high key and low key lighting, how to use voiles to create wonderful 'outfits' and how to back light and create silhouettes.
PET FINE ART 10-4pm WEEKDAYS
As the owner of 5 dogs, 2 rabbits and 2 mice I certainly know how precious our pets are. At these training days I will show you how to beautifully light and edit your subject to create some stunning, timeless pieces of art. Stand out in a crowd by offering your customers something a little bit special and different. I began my interest in pet art when I brought my first dog home and since then have won SWPP Pet Photographer of the Year
COMPOSITES 10-4pm WEEKDAYS
The magical world of composites really open up your eyes and mind to the seemingly impossible. They help your imagination to grow and they help you to bring yourself out of otherwise stagnant periods, which we all have from time to time. As these sessions I will show you how to plan, shoot and edit your own idea and story. We will be creating a wonderful piece of digital art. The choices are only limited by your own imagination.
