Workshop Details - What you need to know

The training packages consist of two one-day workshops. You can do either or both.

As part of what we give you, we video the workshop and supply a simple cut down record of the important learning stages and key techniques and approaches. This coupled with a written review of the day offers a comprehensive way of recapping the learning ensuring maximum benefit and value.

Workshop 1

This workshop teaches a system for the photographer to understand step by step how to tackle and create high level and challenging visual images.

Reinforcing and enhancing the techniques and approaches from the online course, this day is all about practical hands on shooting. 

This system teaches the workflow necessary to professionally manage the shooting process from start to finish.

 

Workshop 2

What does your business need?

This day truly extends the learning and capability of the photographer specifically in relation to the work produced for the business.

Full emersion in the established processes and workflows will enable us to fine-tune the system to produce the best quality product photography possible for that situation and business.

Practical on site learning helps us lock that development in, ensuring maximum benefit for the business.

 

Free Online Pre-Training

Both workshops come with 30 days of free access to the online course, learning material and membership benefits of Shoot Products Like A Pro. This is so the attendee’s are fully ready for higher level practical skills. Full understanding of the essential principles and foundation of my teaching are found in the online material.

 

Where can the workshops take place?

Training can be done at the studio in GL7 3RB, or on site at your location. Remote delivery can be discussed, however face to face is best. The location of the training should be considered carefully; 

  • Should the need be general photographic training then my studio is a great place to deliver this. The Workshop 1  is perfectly geared towards providing you with this result.
  • If you would like the specific Workshop 2, there are benefits for having this at your shooting location. The space will be relevant to the creative output and we can work with the actual set up and available kit aspects on site, as well as on the skills needed to get the best out of them.
  • If we decide on a two day workshop, I feel this could be best delivered on-site, in the space that your images are created. 
  • Remote training is possible from my studio, with specific zoom calls booked for session times plus remote video operation.

Workshop 1 sees us working through the full process from start to finish on how to achieve this classic photograph that I created for one of my clients. The complexity of the final image will be broken down into small chunks that enable us to see the system that underlies every great image.

(If you want to focus your training on something else, Workshop 2 may be best to consider)
