Children's Fine Art Photography Workshop. 19-20 October 2019

Children's Fine Art Photography Workshop. 19-20 October 2019


We're running a weekend workshop for Fine Art Children's Photography. If you'd love to learn the lighting, styling, posing and editing techniques for this profitable and beautiful photography genre, come and join us!

Day 1 Lighting techniques; working with dark images; planning colour schemes; posing; shoots with 7 models.

Day 2 Detailed skin retouching work in Photoshop (heal/clone/dodge/burn); hair retouching; Liquify tool; colour balancing using adjustment layers; 

The workshop will be held at Lacock Abbey National Trust, near Bath. This stunning venue is an inspirational setting to learn studio and location photography techniques, and to take your work to the next level.

You'll be working with 6 child agency models (4 girls & 2 boys aged 7-13), so this is a great opportunity to produce amazing images for your portfolio.

  • Lighting equipment, backdrops, sets, furniture, props etc. are all supplied. A tethered environment is available if required.

  • All shoots will be styled: we're working with professional hair/makeup artists.

  • Assistance with lighting (and any other aspect of the work) will be on hand at all times.

  • We'll show you the best equipment choices to make for this style and how to replicate the lighting setups for a consistent look.

  • You'll learn natural and beautiful skin retouching techniques, not involving skin smoothers or similar.

  • You'll be provided with editing actions to use in Photoshop, as well as digital textures and a bunch of other digital goodies which are yours to keep.

  • A delicious lunch is provided on both days, and all the refreshments you can handle.

  • The venue has fast, free wifi and free on-site parking.

  • You'll receive ongoing support after the course if you need it.

We've prepared a detailed pdf guide which you can download here.

This style of photography is a beautiful and profitable way to add to your professional offering: it's the main style we're asked to shoot in. At English Photoworks we're committed to sharing our knowledge and skills, and love being able to work with other photographers.

The second day of the workshop is devoted to retouching, colour work and editing. As such, you will need to bring a computer running Photoshop and/or Lightroom. If you are not able to bring a computer, we may be able to supply you with one: please just ask!

If you would like to set up a payment plan in two instalments please email us and we'll arrange that for you.

The sessions will be led by David Shoukry, an experienced photographer and workshop leader.
