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



As photographers we improve by trying new things.  That might be trying studio photography for the first time.  It might be trying out a different studio to the one you normally use.   I like to think that all the events at Ian’s Studio are welcoming to first time visitors, but this week’s event will be especially so, and to encourage new visitors to come this week, I am offering a massive 40% discount on the price of this event for anyone who has never been to one of our events before.  That means you will pay just £15 instead of the full price of £25.

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.  For those who need it, I take the time to explain the settings you will need on your camera and also how we set-up and meter the lights.

If you are familiar with studio shoots but never been to one at Ian’s Studio, we are a relatively small studio with a limit of 7 photographer shoot at an event like this.  Tea, coffee and biscuits are available.  If you want advice on shooting or how to pose models I’m happy to provide it… but only if you want it.  We try to ensure that everyone gets a fair chance to shoot, and where possible we try to give opportunities for those who wish to change the lighting to do so.

We are still going to welcome our existing customers to this event, but I’m sorry you’ll have to pay the full price of £25.  Don’t worry I have an exclusive event planed for later in the year that just for existing customers.

The model for this event is Zoe Harlotta.  http://purpleport.com/portfolio/zoeharlotta/?referrer=ianbutty (Safe for work).

Price £15 for first time visitors £25 everyone else.
