This extensive hands-on learning and shooting experience is designed to take your studio photography to new creative heights.

You will learn everything needed to set up and use studio lighting for yourself. You will learn all about an array of light modifying tools that you can use to shape and control the light to suit your creative vision.

We'll also provide an extensive set of student notes, including buying advice and tips PLUS lighting diagrams.

The majority of the workshop takes place in studio. Weather permitting, we will be taking some lighting gear outdoors to show you how to effectively take full control of your outdoor light by mixing studio flash (battery powered) with ambient daylight. We will discuss "overpowering the sun", high-speed sync, and do a little bit of natural light shooting as well.

All you need to bring is your DSLR or mirrorless camera, lenses, and a desire to learn and take amazing photographs in a studio setting (and outdoors for this special edition of the event). Space is strictly limited to 8 attendees.

This workshop is conducted by James Ogilvie, a professional educator, photographer and photography course creator for Henry’s prior to 2018.
