About Photo Holiday Workshops
My workshops are designed for all levels of photographers and cover all aspects of a typical fashion shoot. With my photographic knowledge, technical skills and revealing my professional secrets you will enhance your portfolio, boost your confidence and gain an invaluable experience to inspire you on your future assignments. Every year, I host workshops in several locations in Italy and UK. I choose locations according to the assignment, story and clothes. They are outdoor locations in the centre of Rome, the beach or with Romans monuments. In the event of bad weather we will use the villa and a studio. Your final images will be dynamic, creative and have a high end look similar to the photography industry standard. This will be achieved with the help of a highly motivated professional hair and make up artist, a wardrobe stylist and most importantly with professional agency represented models, all currently working in the photographic field. Having working creatives on set will give you the opportunity to ask questions and collaborate as a team to create the final image. All my workshops are carried out in association with industry leader lighting company Elinchrom and The Flash Centre. The workshop participant numbers are small and exclusive, so we can focus on individuals needs. It does no matter whether you are already a professional, an amateur or coming from a different photographic field. We are confident that after our workshops you will have gained in depth knowledge, have new ideas and most importantly you will have inspirations and skills you can put into practice for your future projects.
