It’s only a month to go until LA’s most charming portrait photographer lands on our doorstep for a weekend of workshops. If not for the stunning images he seems to so effortlessly (and regularly) produce, you really do have to admire the sheer volume of beautiful women he gets in front of his lens… So for the the shy and retiring amongst you with an aspiration to working with models in this way, or for anyone with a thirst for capturing inspiring portraits, these are the sessions for you….

Talk: Friday 24th June 7.30 pm £6
With time for a question and answer session at the end, Lou’s talk will not only include some of his favourite work and influences, but will also touch on the way in which he arrived at the style of imagery that makes each photograph so uniquely his.
Portrait Workshop: Saturday 25th June 10- 2pm £60
PLACES ON THIS WORKSHOP HAVE NOW SOLD OUT
This 4 hour workshops will focus on:
Perfecting Your Vision:- How to hone in and identify your visual language, learning how to craft an individualized style.
How the Tools Shape the Shots: Looking at how different cameras lead to very different results, and how much of an influence they can have on your work.
Interacting with Models:- Investigating the ways you can interact with the people you are shooting, whether they are seasoned professionals, or complete stranger whose face you just “have” to shoot.
Advanced Portrait Masterclass: Sunday 26th June £85
The advanced course will delve deeper into the psychology of portraiture, the relationship between artist and subject, and the ideas and thoughts that help to form successful portraiture. You will also cover the finer points of achieving personal artistic goals relating to improving your photography. Moving beyond the purely technical aspects of creating imagery, there will be a focus on the motivation behind your work, and ways in which it can help to support the implementation of your artistic vision.
Both workshops will allow time for guided shooting with a model….
One to One sessions: Saturday 25th – Monday 27th June £65/hour
There are a limited amount of one to one sessions available over the weekend. They could be either portfolio based if you would like feedback on your work, concentrate on the methods Lou uses to produce his work, or focus on a specific technique you would like to master. Sessions can be booked by the hour.
