Recent Events

Here are the details of the last ten events at Ian’s Studio.  We maintain this list so that photographers can look up details of the events they attended.  If you need to find an older event please visit the Event Archives

If a model was working at the event, then you will probably be able to find her portfolio mentioned on the event listing.  Most portfolio listing sites permit registered photographers to contact the models through the site.  If you have some great images from the event, I always try to encourage photographers to share those images with the models who made them possible.

If you missed an event or enjoyed an event and would like to see it rerun at the studio please let me know.

Please note – we have rescheduled this event to Friday 10 September 2021

The “Red Set” has been very popular in the past at Ian’s Studio.  Now for the first time, I am running this as a premium event.

Although COVID restrictions have currently been lifted – for the time being, all workshops will be restricted numbers to enable social distancing.  For the protection of anyone at the workshop who may not yet be double-vaccinated, or for whom the vaccine may not be 100% effective, I am asking all attendees to wear a face-covering while at the studio.  Thanks for your understanding with this.

With just three photographers you will get much more time shooting throughout the evening than would be possible at a ‘normal’ group shoot.

At this event you will have the opportunity to shoot images using the red set – this includes red background, red sofa and red blinds.  We will look at techniques for creating voyeuristic images, glamour images, and also how to light our subject through the Venetian blinds to create moody images with the shadow of the blinds across our subject.  Our model will, of course, be wearing a red dress and red lingerie and will be posing from clothed to nude.

I can confirm that LilyLuxx will be the model for this event.  (See: https://purpleport.com/portfolio/lilyluxx, https://twitter.com/LilyLuxxOnly/).  Lily is new to modelling and I recently shot with her on the red set at the studio (It’s Lily you can see in the eFlyer for this event) and was VERY impressed with her.  You can see a few example images from that shoot here: https://photos.imb.biz/model/shoot/lily

The price for the evening is £60 – please book using the form below

Friday, 17 January 2020 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Woodbank Works, Turncroft Lane, Stockport, Cheshire, SK1 4AR

This session covers three lighting techniques for Art Nude photography. Each technique uses just one light, what makes these lighting setups different to those covered in the other one light art nude workshop is that we do not use studio background paper. The lighting set-ups covered at this session are:

  • White wall, High-key, large softbox with a bounce board
  • Grided spot on a boom stand (to shoot a model on the floor)
  • Gridded beauty dish angled down the wall

The session is a practical session and you will have the opportunity to practice these types of lighting by photographing a model. You will be provided with lighting diagrams for the lighting set-ups taught at this session.

Please note: That we have a number of Art Nude sessions.  Each session is designed to teach different techniques, with the minimum of overlap.  The sessions can be done in any order and no previous studio experience is required for any of the sessions.

Suitable for: Anyone wanting to learn how to art nude photography in the studio.  Your camera must have a standard hot-shoe to accommodate the lighting trigger.  You will need to be able to set your camera to manual mode and select an aperture in the range f/5.6 – f/11.  No prior studio experience is necessary.

I am pleased to announce that the model for this event will be Ella Jaye – https://purpleport.com/portfolio/ellajaye/?referrer=ianbutty This will be Ella’s first workshop at the studio, but I have already done a quick test shoot with her to prepare for the workshop.  You can find the images from that shoot here:  http://photos.imb.biz/model/shoot/ellajaye1.

A minimum of three photographers booking will be required to run this event.

Woodbank Works, Turncroft Lane, Stockport, Cheshire, SK1 4AR

Bring images to be critiqued.  Get answers to photography questions.  See how YOUR photos can be enhanced in post-production.

The format of the session is simple, come with images.  They don’t have to be your best images, the session works best with images that didn’t quite work – and perhaps you don’t know why.  Come with photography-related questions, is there a technique you want to understand, is there some photography advice you need.

We will load images into Adobe Lightroom, and go through them, looking at them projected on the studio wall.  We talk about what works and what can be improved.  If appropriate we then look at post-production techniques that can be used to enhance the images.

Interspersed between the images, I will do my best to answer your photography questions, explaining techniques and helping you learn new skills.  Perhaps you have the solution to someone else’s photo issues and can help them.  There will be a chance to share and help each other too.

Not only will you get answers to your own questions and advice on how to improve your photographs, but you get to hear the questions and answers from other photographers.  It should all make for a fun evening where we can all learn more.

And as this is the Christmas version of the event – there may even be some mince pies available!

This event will be free for Academy Members but there will be a charge of £8 for non-members.

A minimum of two photographers booking will be required to run this event.

Don’t forget, Academy Members get in for  FREE (and save £8).
Did you know that it only costs £6 to join The Academy for one month?   So why not join the Academy today and save money on this event?
