“Portraiture Photography” sounds a bit daunting at first but we see some amazing results from our students!
A Teen quote: “I absolutely loved this course! And I was quite nervous to start with but then really got in to it and didn’t want to stop!”

This time round we’re adding “People” as capturing character isn’t only about the face.

And we’re adding “studio”, as you get to use our lighting studio! Right in the heart of Covent Garden!

Using each other as models Teens get to experience being both sides of the camera, which is important for:

  • understanding what to ask for
  • how to slightly change your pose to help the photographer
  • experiencing what it feels like to be asked to move, and
  • knowing how to ask!

You will also get to use studio equipment such as reflectors to bounce light into your shot, backdrops and a simple lighting set-up.

Who is this course for?
Anyone with an interest in people, portrait photography, learning where the light falls, how it enhances the shot, composing your shot and using unusual perspectives to add interest, and lots more.
Great for building confidence on many levels. And you’ll have some great images to post too!

Bring hats, props, etc. if you like!

February Half-term Teens COMBINED COURSE:

This half-term we are combining our Portrait course with the Teens Photography and Design Workshop: Building Portfolios and Books, plus some Street Photography.
Based on the work you produce and perhaps also bring in with you if you wish, you will have the opportunity to choose your “output”, from a book, a portfolio to an online collection of images.

You will have two tutors on hand to assist with computer editing skills on Day 4, to ensure completion of your chosen (realistic!) project.


Level: Beginners Plus & Intermediate

This course can be used as an Extra Skill for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme. (Please get in touch with us – we have various options of combining courses or setting mini photography projects over the set number of weeks you need.)

Max. course size: 6
