April 8th  1700 – Midnight   –  April 9th 0930-1600


Join me at 1700 on April 8th in central London the start of a 2 day wedding photography training workshop. We’ll begin with a brief chat about flash, triggers, settings and outline our plan before we start our photography with a bride and groom model shooting through sunset and dusk until just before midnight. By shooting later in the day we will be able to avoid more of the crowds and take advantage of many stunning locations and landmarks as we mix the modern and historic buildings, bridges and towers. 

During this time we’ll be using a mix of flash and street lights to create stunning images against the famous backdrops. You’ll have plenty of hands on shooting as I demonstrate my style and approach before guiding you to create a similar image or something unique to yourself.

Attending a workshop isn’t just about creating stunning images, it’s the journey involved in creating these images and where and how we work out camera and flash settings so you can quickly and easily create similar images on a real wedding day.

You’ll have access to our flashes and triggers for the off camera flash elements of the workshop (Canon, Nikon, Sony and Fuji). it is recommended you have your own flash for when we are shooting with on camera flash. We’ll also be using a variety of gels, grids and other modifiers from Magmod.

You’ll also have plenty of opportunities to guide and direct the models. On the way we will try and incorporate into our photos, Westminster, St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower Bridge, Millennium bridge, The Shard, Tower of London, Banks of the Thames, etc

On day two we’ll meet up again at 0930 for a mid-morning and afternoon of urban shooting taking in several key locations during daylight finishing around 1530 with a coffee and debrief taking us until around 1600. During the second day we’ll be putting all the skills from day one into practice as we photograph our bride and groom with a variety of lighting techniques including off camera flash.

Skill Level – All levels. To get the most from the workshop we would recommend you are able to control your camera manually and own at least one speedlite for your camera.

Areas we’ll be covering – 

  • Selecting the best light source for the subject – flash on and off camera, natural light and LED lighting
  • Quick and easy go to settings for using flash in daylight and after dark
  • Off Camera Flash – using single and multiple speedlites
  • Creating images at night – our workflow for exposure, focus and creating the image
  • Off Camera Flash – Using Modifiers, grids, and coloured gels
  • Posing and composition
