Ian's Studio, Woodbank Works, Turncroft Lane, Stockport, Cheshire, SK1 4AR



Have you ever wanted to learn more about studio photography but were a bit scared to have a go?  Ever felt over-whelmed by the range of events and workshops that are on offer at the studio?  Following on from the sucess of the taster day in 2014 we will be running it again in 2015.  This day is designed to give you a taster of the different types of workshops and training that we offer.

There will be two different 3hrs sessions.  Each session will highlight different aspects of studio photography work. What we cover in each session will be short extracts of the training given in different workshops that we offer at the studio.  

In the morning session we will look at:

  • Portraiture
  • Fashion and commercial
  • Pin-up

In the afternoon session we will look at:

  • Lingerie / Boudoir
  • Glamour
  • Art Nude

Printed notes and lighting diagrams will be provided for all the topics and set-ups that we cover during the taster day.

Our model for this event will be Naomi Sumner (See: http://purpleport.com/portfolio/notyourlotusflower/?referrer=ianbutty).  During the morning session she will be working to clothed/fashion levels.  In the afternoon session our model will be working up to Art Nude levels.

Morning session only:  £36
Afternoon session only: £42
Both sessions: £75

A buffet lunch will be provided for anyone booking to attend both sessions.

If you have never shot in a studio before and don’t know what to expect, there is nothing to worry about.  All you need to bring is your camera and yourself.  Most people shoot with DSLRs but so long as as your camera has a hot-shoe and the ability to work in manual mode you will be fine.  Durring the two sessions I take the time to explain all the settings you will need on your camera and also how we set-up and meter the lights.  This will also be covered in the printed not supplied at the workshop.
