The aim of this constantly growing group is to help you improve your photographic skills not only showing basic and advanced lighting techniques but also making you more aware and conscious of the whole creative process behind a photo shoot.
This means talking about topics like make-up, styling and the overall mood and concept we want to achieve in our images.
We are very keen on both film and digital photography, encouraging everyone to participate with every kind of camera, from toy or self built cameras up to Ultra Large Format cameras or the latest technology extravaganza from the industry.
Joining LPGW for a workshop or a class means taking part and contribute to a very active photography community / club with persons of all ages and different skills. Every month you will have plenty of reasons to grab your camera and take part to:
Workshops -Build up your photography skills and knowledge through tuitions from professionals in the industry
Location shootings -Focus on the particular technique of location lighting
Lectures -Learn from the experts thorough talks and masterclasses from professionals under the spotlights

Teaching and learning photography is a lifetime pleasure and when we opened this group we did it with a precise goal in our mind: to give others the possibility to learn and practice photography while having fun and connecting with like minded people in a relaxed and comfy studio environment.
This is why being part of LPGW means not only to have the chance to improve your photographic skills in a very short time but also to actively contribute with ideas and propositions to a fun and enjoyable community of friends!
We want you to be able to take better photos and to understand how to achieve the results you have in your mind before pressing your camera shutter button. For this reason we will always strive to keep our events and workshops affordable, practical and creative, offering a wide range of topics like Fashion, Portrait, Nude and more.
It does not matter where you come from, what your age is, what your daytime job is or how amateur (or pro) you are with photography... if you love photography and you enjoy meeting nice people you should definitely be part of the LPGW experience at least once! Try it and we are confident you will come back as you will always have a good laugh and new friends beside going home with stunning images!
You ask, we provide - so come along and see the difference !
