Mentoring with Kat

It's always an honour to be selected to guide a new business into the world of photography. Karen and Victor Gavin started out their year long adventure with us at the weekend and we were joined by Kat on Sunday to explore some lighting and shooting techniques.

On Saturday Kerry and I had a little practice run, matching the flash to the spectacular ambient light of the winter sunset.

A little more sunshine

Sunshine is always fun to play with in fashion style, the hard light adds modelling and sculpture to the subjects features, In this set we have our model Kerry in a fur coat against a concrete wall in full sun. More images after the break.

Sunshine in Yorkshire in December

Kerry came to the studio at the weekend together with Diane and Lee from DLB Photography. They're part of our mentoring group and have just embarked on a year of training and support from us. The first shooting session was examining natural light and basic studio lighting techniques. We were fortunate to have a bright sunny day to work with. The sun offers all sorts of challenges to the photographer but it's great to work with. More details after the break.

OK photographer friends. Does anyone fancy having a beer? If so I'll get the round in. Only catch is that the first one will be in London in January at The Societies Photographic Convention, the second round will be in Las Vegas in March at WPPI Online. Just book a Superclass with me in London and a Photowalk with me in Vegas and it's all yours! Anyone up for the challenge #BeerinBoth

Cyber Monday

John Denton Training are today, by popular demand, repeating their Black Friday promotion for today only, Cyber Monday. John explains “It was the first time we'd done a Black Friday offer and it caught a few people out. We've had a load of emails saying they only realised it was on once it had finished. So we've decided to repeat it, for 12 hours only this Cyber Monday. It will finish at 8pm GMT though and that's that so don't miss out this time.”

The offer allows you to purchase a voucher that can be redeemed against future photographic training. Any voucher will be enhanced by 50% of it's face value.

The vouchers can be used as full or part payment against workshops, 1 2 1 training or the September trip to Portugal.
