What we're about

Using my fully equipped, professional photographic studio, we'll learn new skills and develop existing talent.

I'll be offering advice and guidance throughout and assist with setting up and direction.

Sessions will take place at my studio in Sherburn-in-Elmet east of Leeds. Free car parking; close to M1 and A1 and 5 mins from local rail station.

Charges include full use of studio and tuition (where appropriate). Model fees may be additional - see event details.

Notes:

We are a very relaxed and informal group. Ideas and creativity are very much encouraged, however, for your safety and general well being of all who attend, we have a couple of 'rules'.

Members are requested to adhere to Health & Safety requirements whilst in the studio.

Members are expected to behave in a considerate and respectful manner to other members and models at all times.

Our regular monthly meeting to learn or develop studio skills. A 2 hour session for members who to enjoy working in the studio, swap ideas and develop new skills and techniques Bring along some ideas or images that you'd like to use as inspiration and we'll agree a few for the evening......setting up the lights and posing the model to obtain our interpretation.
