About this event

Damien Lovegrove is considered by many to be one of the worlds most influential contemporary photographers. He is best known for creating portraits that make women look fabulous. Having had a glittering career at the BBC as a cameraman and lighting director spanning 14 years he left it all behind him in 1998 to become a full-time stills photographer. 'I love teaching how to photograph beautiful people in beautiful places with a narrative and soul. Im passionate about light and will show you how to take control of shadows, contrast and tone to create photographs with balance and harmony. Although Im a highly technical photographer, I will show you how to capture connection, intimacy and sensuality in your photographs.'

Damien was a Fujifilm ambassador for 6 years and still has ties with Fujifilm to this day. Damien will be shooting with his GFX50s camera with 32-64mm and 110mm lenses. For one of the set up's Damien will demonstrate the use of Godox flash and will supply dedicated flash triggers for this event. There will be 3 models for this day who will each be posing in a different location, and there will be 3 groups of 5 photographers so each small group will have plenty of one on one shooting time with each model. Damien will be offering tips and advice throughout the day.

One of our models for the day will be Carla Monaco who is an internationally renowned & published model:
