It’s here! The blog post all about my recent Masterclass in Locations, Lighting & Posing. This work shop does what it says on the tin. It was all about choosing great locations, using lighting creatively (a mix of natural light, video and constant light sources, off camera flash and location lighting) and posing your subject.
Me, TWENTY photographers, an amazing team working with me – it was always going to be a blast!
We started off early doors prepping our model, the gorgeous Sarah, for the day ahead. We’d been bold. We wanted to do three full changes on the day, including a bridal look and we knew we didn’t have much time to spare in between shooting. But that’s where the awesome team comes into play. Paisley Gamble Hairdresser and Kerry Baker Make Up Artist alongside my gorgeous wife Emma (from LOVE Bridal Boutique!) ensured that Sarah looked amazing and was ready in an unbelievably short time!
Massive thanks have to go to Jenny from The Lowry for letting us use the interior of this amazing building, Howard Wing for working with the photographers on all things marketing and networking and generally how to be an amazing wedding supplier, to Joe & Karin from Pinchjo’s Tapas bar and restaurant in West Didsbury for hosting the ‘after party’ and to Andy Murphy DJ for spinning the tunes and ensuring that everyone suitable embarrassed themselves singing karaoke
So to start off, some instagram ‘behind the scenes’ photos courtesy of Howard, Kerry and Emma…
Getting things started – this is what I shot on the day…
Some of the attending photographers have been kind enough to share some of their images from the day – I LOVE seeing how differently everyone has framed images, processed them and really put their own stamp on them
And then it was party time….it started off relatively sensibly as overall, this was part of the workshop to encourage a little bit of ‘networking’ – amongst the attending photographers and all the involved suppliers as well as some of my other wedding supplier friends I’d invited to join us for the evening – it was great to see Sian from Didsbury Flower Lounge, Tom from Silk Wedding Films, Helen and Pete from We Are Life, Ben and Kate from Thyme Out Deli and Catering and Helen from Macleod Bradley
But then the rounds of jagermeister started and it all got a bit nuts…!!!
…and got ridiculous quite quickly…!!!
Finally, a huge thank you to Jo Eardley for assisting on the day and shooting the party images for us – great work Jo!
Keep your eye on my Facebook page for more Workshops, Masterclasses and Training experiences (not all finish with a party I’m afraid!)
– NEW DATES WILL BE RELEASED VERY SOON…!!!
