What is the course about?

This course is aimed at students who have a good knowledge of the technical elements of photography and want to learn the concepts and techniques to take great portraits.

Does a portrait show the essence of a person or is it a creative expression of the Photographer? We will discuss these concepts whilst explaining techniques to direct and relax your subjects and cover the use of daylight, studio flash and Speedlights to achieve the best results creatively and technically.

During this 4-day long portrait photography course, students will be introduced to the work of key practitioners and will have the opportunity to work with individual models. We will focus on the importance of light and how to control it, as well as the relationship between photographer and the model. The resulting images can then be used as a foundation for a portrait portfolio.
