Photography Workshops And Training

Fancy taking your portrait photography to the next level?

Why not book a one-to-one photography training day with Paul? With the facilities that we have here (and the team!) our all-day photography workshops here at our studio and stunning garden are perfect for developing new skills or pushing those you already have to the next level.  Aimed at professionals and experienced enthusiasts, Paul will show you how he goes about creating the images he’s known across the world for, from inception, execution through to post production (and marketing and selling them too if you’d like!)

With the wonderful in-house facilities we have here, Paul and the team can cover pretty much any aspect of portrait or wedding photography – you just need to ask!

Photography Workshop Topics

You can design your day to suit you, focussing (forgive the pun) on whatever aspects of portrait photography that you’d like to explore.  Some of the things we have been asked to work on have been:

  • Available light photography
  • Using locations and the environment
  • Discovering and refining your own style
  • Camera craft
  • Off-camera flash
  • Studio lighting and control
  • Lighting faces and the figure
  • Workflow and image management
  • Post production and retouching
  • Getting the most out of your printing
  • Planning a wedding with the couple
  • Shooting for the sale
  • The client reveal and how to maximise revenue
  • Using albums as an alternative product to frames

Each and every portrait photography workshop is hand-crafted to suit you and your requirements – just let us know the aspects that you’re interested in when you book and we’ll make sure we can cover it (and we’ll let you know if we can’t!)

The day usually begins at 10am and finishes when everyone’s had their fill! If you’re travelling across the country and need somewhere to stay we can recommend hotels locally – just ask for the list when you book your day.

Workshop Pricing

A full day photography workshop here at our studio (including lunch and models) is £675. If you would like to come as a group, each additional person is £50. 

Each attendee will also receive a signed copy of Paul’s and Sarah Plater’s book Mastering Portrait Photography!

Ah, I LOVE our training days. There is something completely exhilarating taking apart the image-making process and showing someone how I do what I do (though sometimes it must seem pretty random!)

All of the following were created on various training days and workshops. See? It might appear slightly random when you’re watching me, but it does seem to create lovely images!
