Tell Me Ten Words in French

It was my absolute pleasure to be part of a panel to judge a photographic competition held by Alliance Francaise - 'Tell me ten words… in French’ / Dis-moi Dix Mots en Français.  The aim of the competition is to celebrate the diversity of French-speaking-regions Alliance.

Lighting the Form - Workshop - Contact Sheet

Excited to be teaching this fabulous workshop alongside Tom Luscombe.  Please come and join us.

The workshop is designed to be hands on with practical advice mixed with live model shoots in the studio. Your tutors will take you through a variety of setups with an emphasis on how to light the models skin. The course will also focus on directing techniques for models, setting the scene and the importance of good composition . The course aims to give a better understanding of light and shadow and to give emphasis to form with ideal proportion.

The course will give students an opportunity to shoot different nude setups in our studio. Students will also be required to source their own model and conduct their own shoot as home work and present to the final class for critique. The final class will be determined after discussion with the group in the first class.
