Location Portrait Master Class

All portrait photography has the same basic ingredients but bringing those together on location creates it's own set of challenges.

The Location Portrait Master Class studies the elements of great portraiture and how the logistics of working on location can effect those elements. You will learn practical skills to recognise the challenges or advantages a location can offer and then to utilise the resources at hand to create great portraits.

On the workshop you will learn

  • the basic elements of portraiture
  • choosing a location that suits your subject
  • seeing the light¬†
  • positioning and posing your subject in the location
  • modifying the light to suit your subject
  • working with people to bring out their best
  • adding emotion to your images
  • bringing images from concept through to capture¬†

The full day workshop is a practically based learning experience. You will be guided through exercises photographing a model in different shooting conditions. Each exercise is designed to enhance your skills in dealing with the various conditions you may encounter and recognising the best way to create the images you want.
