This course will cover shooting in the studio with a range of advanced lighting set-ups and include shooting to a brief. It will equip you with the necessary knowledge for shooting editorial/portraits/headshots and fashion, working with a client and directing models. Much of modern photography is problem solving and we will equip you with the skills you need to make it in the commercial world, you will also get a lot of 1:1 focus on your composition, developing a style and your portfolio.

Your tutor, and a stylist will lead you through styling a shoot for a client, from fashion to portrait, and will work with you and the model(s). Hands on experience is worth so much more and will not only prepare you for commercial shoots but will also help you as a photographer to realise your ‘vision’.

We will keep all groups to a maximum of 6 students per course so you will receive full attention from the tutors, the group will be split at intervals to work with the stylists or with Kevin and his regular lighting assistant.
