Portrait/Model Shoot Workshop

  • November 18, 2012 · 1:00 PM

Thanks so much for everyone's interest in this!

Update: Sessions on the 11th and 18th has been booked out. If there's enough interest for a third one, then I'll work out when I can have the next one and update this listing. Please email [masked] to register your interest. Best regards!

 

Hi, any beginner portrait photographers out there want to take part in a portrait/model shoot workshop? I'm running a series of workshops on how to photograph people for portraiture/model portfolios/weddings over the coming summer months. This is a practical hands-on workshop with a limit of 5 people per workshop, working with models.

This would benefit anyone that wants some experience and techniques on how to take vibrant photos of people, be it for portraiture, candids of the family, lifestyle and weddings and also venturing into model portfolios.

Happy to help out and coach newcomers wanting some experience in this area, so here's a suggested meetup for an introductory half day session.

I'm happy to discuss more details if there are people interested in this.

Best wishes,
Andy, Flashpop.

    • Andy Tan

      Hi Marina, times will be 1-5pm on either the Sat or the Sun. Please email me at [masked] to secure a place if you're keen. Cheers!

      October 31, 2012

  • Andy Tan

    To secure your place for the first weekend's sessions, 10/11 November - please send me an email to [masked] and state the day you would like to attend - sessions will be either Sat afternoon 1-5pm or Sunday afternoon 1-5pm. 5 places each.

    If I can't fit you in I'll be happy to book you in to the next available session that suits you.

    Cheers,
    Andy, Flashpop

  • Andy Tan

    Wow, great interest! Ok, here's a bit more info - expected cost is $40 for the session per person, which includes 3 hours for the workshop with the model/s and an hour after for Q&A that's optional for anyone that would like more training or have general questions about photography techniques etc. Part of the cost is to pay for the models.

    Each workshop will be limited to 5 people at a time at most so that everyone can get hands-on experience and good one-on-one training for the session. The workshops will take place on the weekend, most likely for the Sat and or Sun afternoons. First workshops are planned for the wkd of Nov 10/11 if there are takers for those dates, and pending availability of the model/s. Following workshops will be as and when depending on interest. Location can vary depending on weather, I would prefer an outdoor location as this would give people more environment to interact with but could be indoors if it rains.

    Cheers!
    Andy, Flashpop.
