ENVIRONMENTAL PORTRAITURE WORKSHOP – September 17-19th in Wirksworth

By , June 7, 2010 1:41 pm

The Photographers’ Place workshop weekend, September 17-19 in Wirksworth, Derbyshire, is on the theme of environmental portraiture, with a guest, Brian Griffin, one of Britain’s most distinguished portrait photographers.

The weekend is about approaches to portraiture on location. There will be plenty of practical experience, going out into the old market town in small groups, to ‘sitters’ and locations arranged in advance for you to photograph – or you can go off to do your own thing. And there will be a session on how to use lighting to improve portraits.

The three leaders, all teachers in photography and all with a wealth of experience and strong individual approaches in portraiture, are Paul Hill, Nick Lockett and Martin Shakeshaft.

Brian Griffin, with his huge experience in making iconic images of famous faces, will be joining the workshop on Saturday to offer his expertise. It is an opportunity to hear four strong voices on making photographic portraits on location.

There will be open feedback sessions on images made during the weekend and portfolio reviews on request. Again, it is an opportunity to ‘eat sleep and breathe’ photography for a whole weekend with supportive and like-minded practitioners in an informal environment.

The fee for the weekend workshop is £300 which includes accommodation, full board and all tuition.

    So enjoyable, so much fun, and so much learnt. “Relentess” from first thing in the morning to last thing at night: eat, sleep and dream photography. Can’t wait for the next one.
