Damien Lovegrove is one of the foremost trainers of photography and entrepreneurial business strategies in our industry. A published writer and regular columnist, Damien travels widely sharing his knowledge and expertise and has a contagious enthusiasm for photography and the development of others.  He has earned the coveted 'Master of the Craft' accolade from the Guild of Photographers in recognition of his skills and commitment to the art of photography and the training thereof. This award has only been given to 5 other photographers throughout the world.

Damien Lovegrove learned his trade as a cameraman and lighting director during 14 years at the BBC. Days off from filming were often spent taking photographs for a variety of top name clients including Peugeot, Motorola, and Adidas.

Schedule:

[masked] Classic Hollywood Reborn: A practical demonstration by Damien Lovegrove on how to recreate the classic Hollywood lighting set ups. The output of Damien's camera will be on the big screen. Damien will demonstrate how to shoot using continuous hard light and soft light sources.  He will show how to create those classic rim lighting effects and how he uses and feathers lensed lights. Damien will discuss key angles and demonstrate how to create depth in two dimensional portraits. Many of the techniques shown can be recreated with studio flash lighting systems.

    Fantastic event - so much packed into the session, with really helpful and insightful demonstrations, and a real emphasis on lighting (obviously) and composition and rather than an obsession with the camera. Excellent.
