Newborn photography isn’t like anything else. Its not something that can easily be learned, and especially not quickly.
There are many options available to you when you embark on the journey to learn this great craft. You could choose a workshop, or a 1:1. Both have benefits of course, but the one thing they both have in common is that they are quite short. One day, maybe two. Then its done. You learn a lot in a short time, and perhaps thats got its drawbacks.
My Mentoring Programme aims to do two things.
Firstly it aims to brake down the art of newborn photography into much more depth, and secondly, it will do so over a much longer time. This means you learn more, and have longer to absorb what you learn.
HOW WILL IT WORK?
I will be running two courses consisting of 6 classes per course.
You can choose which course to sign up for, and you will then attend all 6 classes at that location. All classes will run from 9.30am – 3pm approx.
Each class will cost £175, paid two weeks in advance.
The dates for the first class on each course have been decided and can be found below. The date for the next class will be mutually arranged between all course members at the end of each class, and so on. The aim is to spread them approximately 8-12 weeks apart on weekdays only where possible.
BY SIGNING UP TO A COURSE YOU ARE COMMITTING TO ATTEND ALL 6 CLASSES. FAILURE TO PAY FOR AND ATTEND A CLASS FORFEITS YOUR PLACE ON THE COURSE.
WHAT WILL IT COVER?
CLASS 1 – Client relationship, booking, contracts, model releases, planning and preparation.
CLASS 2 – Reading the baby, soothing and settling, posing bed &
wrapping for smooth workflow and transitions.
CLASS 3 – Lighting and angles
CLASS 4 – Containers, props, composites and hanging shots
CLASS 5 – Parents and siblings.
CLASS 6 – Culling, editing and gallery design
For some classes I will also set assignments aimed to get you practicing, and for the wrapping class l’ll ask you to bring a baby sized doll so l can teach you wrapping and assess your technique and help you improve.
You will also have access to a closed Facebook support group which will remain open for the duration of the course. This will allow you to stay in touch with your fellow course members and support each other, as well as access to me should you need it along the way.
COURSE 1 TO BE HELD AT PRESTON WILL START ON FRIDAY 2ND NOVEMBER 2018
COURSE 2 TO BE HELD AT ST ALBANS WILL START ON TUESDAY 13TH NOVEMBER 2018
