Mastering Monochrome Photography From Shutter To Print
July 8, 2024

Are you passionate about photography and eager to enhance your skills in portrait? Look no further! Our exclusive Mastering Portrait Photography workshop is designed to take your photography to the next level. In this Masterclass, you'll learn to create stunning portraits and the best ways to finish your images with award winning photographer, Paul Wilkinson.

Portrait photography is a glorious mix of creative ideas, understanding people, reading (and manipulating) light and, like it or not, a degree of post-production (even if it’s just a little tweaking of white balance and brightness!) And that’s why we love it so much!

In this all-day workshop, we will spend the morning creating beautiful portraits using studio lighting and available light.  We will spend time understanding how to read your subject and the light and locations you have at hand to create stunning images.

After lunch – with the usual lively discussion – we will spend the afternoon stepping through some of the best ways to process the images ready for beautiful monochrome prints and wall art to sell to your clients.


This workshop is for those looking to add a touch of class and something different to their portrait photography and post-production. Our workshops are fine-tuned to suit those attending, and with a small number of delegates, we can pick and choose from the following:

  • The fundamentals of reading light
  • The principles of creating stunning B&W portraits
  • Understanding the limits of your camera settings (and just how much the technology can achieve!)
  • Studio lighting patterns that are flattering and fast
  • Processing RAW files in Lightroom
  • Retouching files in Photoshop ready for stunning prints
  • Applying some of the new AI features in Photoshop

The number of attendees is strictly limited to 6 for this workshop, ensuring everyone plenty of hands-on time with the studio, the lights and the models.  This is a hands-on day rather than a desk-based masterclass.

Each attendee will be invited to our exclusive (and private) Facebook Group, where we post all of the technical notes, behind-the-scenes insights, top tips and early bookings for our future workshops.

Some Lovely Feedback From Previous Workshops

Paul’s high energy and enthusiasm to share his knowledge and passion is both inspiring and exciting. I leave with a ‘can do’ attitude which I’m able to transfer to my own professional working practices. Thank you.

What a pleasure to see a true master of portrait photography in action. Paul shows you that stunning portraits can be taken in almost any type of natural light if you understand how to use it effectively. Thank you for a truly inspiring day.

A thoroughly enjoyable course run by Paul and Sarah which allowed me to further my knowledge of portrait photography in a relaxed and welcoming environment. I would recommend the course to anyone wanting to learn what goes into making a great portrait photo and how to analyse and utilise the best available light. Paul’s outstanding teachings were only surpassed by the beauty of the studio garden and Sarah’s excellent course organisation and hospitality. A really memorable day. Thank you.

The workshop was great fun, really interesting and very informative. Looking forward to attending others.
