Many people have commented that Lulu Lockhart and I make a good team, and we have decided to share the knowledge of how we produce our images by running location photographic workshops. There will be indoor and outdoor workshops, with both single and multiple day events. Initially they will be based in the UK and Ireland, but we do have some plans for trips abroad to some great locations.
You’ll be able to see how we work as a team, which I think plays a big part in the success of our images, to see how I find and frame my compositions and use the natural light, and obviously work with one of the best location art-nude models there is. Location photography can be difficult, but we aim to give you the information you need to plan your own successful shoots, as well as getting lots of your own images on the workshop as well.
If you wish to register an interest in our workshops, and be notified when details are available please drop me a line using the Contact page, and you’ll be able to book early before details are made generally available.
Here’s a recent image from Ireland which was very much a joint effort, with Lulu deciding on where she would be positioned and me coming up with the ideal composition.
This was taken in Wales, the light, subject positioning, and communicating with Lulu at a distance were all important, and these sort of things are part of how we work, and will be explained on the workshops.
I am quite well known for shooting from a raised viewpoint, and you’ll learn when to use this technique, and how to achieve this type of image.
When I walked into this room I instantly saw this image in my mind, but none of the many photographers who had shot there before had even considered it. We’ll explain what we look for when we arrive at a location and how we work out the shots.
We even manage rather tricky impromptu shots!
Our images are about shapes, and integrating the model into the environment is our speciality, and we’ll explain how we do this.
Even when we book accommodation for our trips we consider how we can shoot there, which is useful in cases of bad weather, or even just to get some great natural light shots.
Taken at the same accommodation, using the same window, we show how to make best use of a location to get multiple sets.
We like to think we source great locations and make best use of them, such as in this final image.
If you like our images, and want to see how we produce them and learn how to produce your own, then to get more information on our workshops please get in touch using the Contact page.
