my message to you :

I do my best to provide a quality experience on my events, I’m not God with a camera but after 38 years of professional photography I have a few tips and tricks to pass on. I have my own way of conducting these events and will fit in with your needs as best I can to assist you to get your best images ever! During my assistance, I will take a few images to further the progress, by way of illustrating lighting setup or for a practical demonstration, such as working with your model, to help you to get your best results – it’s part of how I assist!

Let me just point something out – I can demonstrate a point in approx 3 minutes, where it would take approx 10 minutes to explain, this gives you more shooting time, (do you learn better by reading instructions or by practical, hands-on demonstrations?) With this applying to lighting, exposure, framing, working with your model etc., etc, work this out for yourself over a period of 4-5 hours – a lot of time saved and the demonstrations made in a more useful way!! This time saved is for you to use to take more pictures!!

However, the images I may take – if I do post any – will NOT be posted to social media or PurplePort until enough time has passed for you to use your images. If you would prefer that I don’t take any images – JUST SAY, I have thousands already!  If you don’t like how my working methods sound – then you don’t have to come here, it’s your choice. I can’t be any more open that this.

Note to models : In response to the recent trend of using our workshops to promote your sponsors/ brands, this practice is not allowed in our terms and conditions, you are being paid for your time and you may not use images from these workshops to promote sponsors and brands without my permission – let them pay us for use of images like everyone else does.

please note : we don’t do adult, soft porn, or any distasteful images, we promote a high standard of behavior and respect to everyone.

ASSISTED WORKSHOPS : 4 photographers and a model (of our usual high standard of course!) 10am-4pm with 1 hour lunch (which you provide yourself, we’ll provide tea & coffee) this allows more shooting time and individual assistance. All workshops incorporate timed one2one’s with our model to ensure equal opportunity per photographer. Enjoy the social learning advantage too, chat to others about camera’s, lighting, get tips from how others work etc. etc! These events are aimed at the serious photographer looking to progress and work with models, assistance available when required. Scroll down for more info.

beauty lighting and re-touching workshops :

 

The plan : With a top model, makeup artist and myself, we’ll show you how the team put together the ideal setting, lighting and makeup for 4 top class beauty shots! A Sunday workshop, 10am – 4pm – last hour is re-touching – with 1 hour lunch, 4 people only for maximum benefit to each, just £135.00 per person.

The summary : Everyone has their own ideas about re-touching, when, where, how much, what technique etc. etc. Read about my take on it and see if you like the way it sounds. There’s every degree of re-touching going on, from ultra smoothed skin, specific gel techniques, digitally textured and so on. My preference’s are job specific, with standard beauty shots it’s just enough re-touching to be flattering without looking fake or altering the model’s appearance, so changing the shape of someone’s face is not a preferred method to me – I’d sooner change the model to one with a face shape I want to work with. Some skin needs a lot of work and will end up very smooth with an even texture all over, this again is not my chosen preference but I appreciate the need and will do it when necessary. For me, as natural as possible is my favourite, even so, I will use a little soft focus if I think it will enhance the end result, super-sharp is not always the best either. So, it’s image specific – but with reservations about certain aspects already mentioned, if this sounds good to you, then jump on board a workshop! Free actions too – all the ones I use!
