Mastering Off-Camera Lighting
May 13, 2024

Learn to create stunning portraits using off-camera lighting in this intensive full-day workshop with award winning photographer Paul WIlkinson

As a master of available light, Paul is well-known for his location portraits with nothing more than a camera in his hand and a big grin.  But adding off-camera lighting brings a whole new set of opportunities (and can give you an escape route if the weather clamps down or you’re shooting after the sun has set!)

In this energetic, hands-on masterclass, Paul will show you how to create stunning portraits using off-camera light, whether as the key light on your subject or adding a little flare to raise your images to the next level.


Bring your camera and your creativity, and enjoy a day of non-stop lighting, laughing and learning! 
In this workshop, Paul will cover:

  • Different types of off-camera lighting from off-camera flash to continuous light
  • Using modifiers on your off-camera lighting
  • Positioning your lights for stunning portraits
  • Combining one and two lights
  • Setting up your camera for off-camera flash
  • Blending your available and off-camera light for the best effect

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.

Lovely Quotes From Previous Studio Workshops

“There is absolutely no substitute for being “in the room where it happened”. Paul has the unique ability to read the room and assess the individual needs of six disparate photographers and make sure each feels that the workshop was directed at him/her. Anyone can give you the “numbers” of a set-up, but Paul shares the “why” and makes you feel you can do it too.”, Bob

“One of the industry’s true masters. A real treat to be taught by someone of Paul’s reputation.” [wishes to remain anonymous], 2022

“Paul was absolutely amazing, he literally embodies photography & lighting and he talked about it with such knowledge, enthusiasm and experience it was a delight to attend. Paul gave some very practical demonstrations and techniques which I will incorporate into my approach to lighting.
From the moment I was greeted by Sarah in the morning to the end of the course it was a great learning experience, I would recommend, you won’t be disappointed.”,  Stephen

“Brilliant course and exceptional tuition from Paul!”, Daniel

“An excellent training day that cemented for me how to use lighting. I got quite a few of those ‘Ahhhhh’ moments where everything just clicked. I now feel confident with my skills and ability to produce the shots I was looking to achieve. Any questions asked we answered and no holds barred. Huge thank you to Paul and Sarah for a FABULOUSLY fun day. I will definitely be back for another workshop.”, Karen
