Capturing the Essence of a Wedding 
with David Wheeler FBIPP

Tuesday 16 May 2017 Missenden Abbey

Working alongside David in this Masterclass, you will discover key aspects of creating thought-provoking, memorable and dynamic wedding images.  You will learn the benefits of using background and colour to bring natural characteristics to wedding photography, and be encouraged to seize the moment in order to produce relaxed images that truly reflect the tone of the day.  David will demonstrate how he works with a venue, rain or shine, and uses a variety of locations around the grounds to capture a wedding, equipping you with the confidence to view your venue as an exciting opportunity to yield incredible results.


Lighting for Environmental Portraiture
with Chris Harper FBIPP

Monday 22 May BIPP Offices Whitchurch

Join Chris for this day of practical tutorials and fast-paced hands-on learning! Discover how to work with natural light to form the most flattering portraits and experiment with a variety of backgrounds to produce images that have enormous strength and yet, are incredibly simple.

Become less reliant on your kit and the limitations of the camera and use your eye to escape from ordinary images into something much more creative.

This workshop follows on from our Studio Lighting course in February and is a great opportunity to experiment with posing, lighting and composition, while maximising the potential of the environment you have to work with.


Posing and Composition 
with Kevin Wilson Hon FBIPP

Tuesday 20 June 2017 BIPP Offices, Whitchurch

Kevin is known worldwide for his passion of photography, knowledge and his love of ‘paying it forward.’  Kevin is generous with his knowledge and will spend time illustrating how small things can make a huge difference when shooting portraiture, from a minor change to a subject’s pose to a slight alteration to maximise the benefits of natural light.  You’ll be taken through the techniques of using and controlling available light to shape your work, and how to work with your subject’s body posture and shape to create a mood.

Kevin will encourage you to think about what makes your work competitive, and how to create a personal style to ensure you remain true to yourself whilst producing your best work.  You’ll get the opportunity to view some of Kevin’s images, pick up tips, ask plenty of questions and work alongside him as the workshop takes a practical approach.


Lose the Flash Fear Factor
Michael Wharley ABIPP

Tuesday 12 September 2017 Makespace Studios, London

Michael, South East Regional Photographer of the Year in 2014 and 2016, cut his lighting teeth shooting reportage for cinema chains and actors' portraits, and has since earned a reputation as one of the UK's leading authorities on actors headshots, working with an array of entertainment industry clients including many famous faces.

Today he is active across a broad span of work: whether it is creating a subtly varied headshot portfolio for an actor, producing high-end advertising imagery for film, theatre & TV, working with strobe on location or producing fine art quality portraits in the studio, Michael works fluidly with continuous, strobe and natural lighting to achieve radically different styles of portraiture.

You will join Michael at his busy studio in the heart of London, gaining an insight into the processes behind the creation of some of his award-winning work through discussion and practical demonstration, with plenty of opportunity to ask questions.
