About this event

Join us for this informative environmental portrait training day that will aim to push the boundaries of your photography! The use of light is key to taking eye catching portraiture, and what better place to experiment than a huge Victorian pump house, full of natural light and beautiful backdrops. As well as having our own exclusive use of this wonderful venue we will have a dedicated fashion model and a professional portrait photography trainer. The main focus of the day will be using the natural light around you, but we will also have some lighting and reflectors available to use.

Your trainer for the day will be award winning photographer Ray Lowe. Ray has over 50 years experience in the photography industry and runs an award winning photography studio- Ray Lowe Studios, he is also chairman of the MPA.
