Portrait Weekend Sat 3 and Sun 4 March

A whole weekend of unique instruction in portraiture with a wonderful opportunity to add to your portfolio. Working in a very small group of just six participants we will spend two days from 10am until 4pm improving our portraiture skills.

Over this two day class we will have three different models to shoot and we will cover a wide selection of lighting and portrait styles. All models will sign a release giving you the rights to use the images you take.

All lighting and equipment will be provided, you just need to bring your camera, batteries and media cards.

The cost for two full days of instruction and shooting is just $325

Check out some of the images from our previous portrait class at:

It is a great way to spend a winter weekend while obtaining valuable instruction from a true professional and gaining some stunning images for your portfolio.

Recent attendees in Ian’s portraiture classes have commented:

“"Fantastic course! I went from taking iphone looking shots to near-professional stuff...Ian is a great teacher, very patient and very generous" Walt

“Useful and practical information packed into the well thought out agenda.” Jean

"Lots of very eye-opening information. I came to the workshop with a list of questions and Ian answered all of them without me having to ask. Thanks, Ian, for generously sharing what you've learned in your business experience".. Denise

"This masterclass with Ian was worth every cent and time invested. Ian covered all the basic portrait lighting techniques, gears and set up but more importantly, the ins and outs of running a successful portrait business. In this increasingly competitive market, where every Joe, Bob and Mary with a DSLR claims to be a professional, it is rare to find a true seasoned professional that is so genuinely interested in sharing all the secrets of the trade that he has amassed during his thirty plus years of photography". Donald "great introduction to studio lighting techniques and how to take a head shot. As usual, Ian added a bonus by providing us a cliff notes course on business psychology 101 for the emerging pro photographer as well as sharing his experiences as a working photographer-- all very enlightening. Would recommend this class to anyone thinking about getting nto photography as a full time business". Alfred
