Boudoir in London

I finished off the week at The Societies Convention leading a Boudoir Superclass. Was great fun turning a boardroom into a Boudoir with a little imaginative use of space and the duvet from my bed! Charlotte was fantastic and looking forward to hitting the road with her again in March for the start of our own workshops.

We're back!

Back from London and what a show it was. The Societies Convention is the biggest and best photographic event in the UK bar none. We arrived last Tuesday and over five days performed nine different classes for hundreds of photographers. We were on location in a studio and on the streets, we were live on The Flash Centre Stage, we shot Boudoir in a boardroom, we broadcast live on the internet for Sandy Puc TV and all round had a fantastic time.

Welcome Charlotte

Charlotte has been on our radar for a year or so now but due to our busy lives we never managed to get her in for a test shoot. She flew back from Australia last Thursday, hit the studio on Monday and today will travel down to London with me as my principal model at The Societies Convention. If you want to come and meet us, buy us a drink etc then see you at the Hilton. Looking forward to a great week working with you all. See you there. Pictures after the break..

Busy start to 2015

2015 is going to be busiest and best year yet in the history of JD Training. It all kicks off next week in London and then takes us all around the UK and Ireland as well as trips to USA and Portugal, and that's just for starters. We'd be delighted if you could join us somewhere along the way. From Studio lighting and Nudes at our East Yorkshire studio to stage shows at the NEC, there's a little something for everyone.

Huge thanks to Elinchrom, The Flash Centre, GF Smith, Datacolor, LightBlue Software, WPPI, The Photography Show and of course our dear friends at the Societies. Look forward to making this a very special year indeed.

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.
