I am hosting a variety of lighting workshops in Brighton with model (and partner) Jade Lyon. I specialise in narrative based constructed images, creating and lighting scenes usually with a cinematic style. I've worked for both Sony and currently Canon training store staff and customers, whilst personally shooting Nikon! So I can help you regardless of your camera brand. Jade is both a very experienced model and a photographer herself. Not only are we teaching the technical side, but also the model direction and building a rapport with your subjects in order to get the best out of them.
With a maximum of six people per workshop it allows everyone plenty of time to experiment and learn from your mistakes in order to come out with something you can be proud of as well as the skills to recreate it at home. All workshops include some written materials outlining the concepts that we will be covering, with a few example images and the lighting diagram and settings to go with it, so that you have something to refer to afterwards. As well as a model pose guide/ cheat sheet to allow you to get some great shots from the start of any shoot so you and the model can feel more confident.
Unlike many other workshops, we offer something out of the plain white studio space. We spend time hunting for interesting locations that suit each workshop! These locations mean that you come out of the day with unique images.
Workshops are generally held on Mondays. Take a look at the calendar to see upcoming dates for the workshops or other events, or click the workshops to see more details and to book. You can buy a place for a specific date, or just buy it open ended (great for gifts or buying multiple workshops to save money). Most workshops will be held roughly every 6-8 weeks, usually on the last Monday of the month.
Discounts apply for multiple purchases. Buy more than 1 workshop and use code: MULTI to receive a 10% discount.
Prefer one to one training?
You can book us both with tuition from myself and Jade Lyon as the model for only £60 per hour or save 10% when buying 3 or more hours (use code MULTI).
I also offer Photoshop tuition as a one to one session for £40 per hour. This can be to cover the basics up to advanced high end skin retouching. I do not cover compositing (i.e. digital art). Get in touch if you would like to buy 3 or more hours.
