Natural Light Portraits

Great images are everywhere

We don’t need fancy locations, supermodels or expensive gear to capture great portraits.

We just need to understand how to get the most out of the situations we are in.

About the Workshop

Simple, easy to learn visual skills to change how you see the world.

Great portraits are everywhere; you just have to learn to see the world of light, contrast and colour that is all around us.

A great portrait does not need a French Castle and a supermodel to make it great, it needs fabulous light, an understanding of how to shape and sculpt with it and, most importantly, an understanding of how to get your camera to produce the images you have in your minds eye.

Whether you want to capture great photos of your children just for yourself, or to improve your portrait photography business our Natural Light Portrait Workshop will literally change the way you look at the world around you.

You will learn how to catch dramatic, beautiful portraits anywhere, anytime with simple, easy to understand lessons.

The day is very hands on, you will take some of the best portraits you have ever taken, and, better yet, you’ll learn skills that you will be able to add to your own photography and take your images to another level.
