Urbex model shoot - Manchester - 7th July 10am - 4pm

Urbex model shoot - Manchester

We are delighted to be able to announce our first workshop of 2019 in a unique urbex location in a Victorian mansion house in Manchester, featuring some great locations and even a Judge Dread movie car in the gardens. The building has just the right amount of decay to create some stunning backdrops to shoot against and using light we will build atmosphere on top of this great location.

Working with Terry, model Edie and MUA Sarah, you will learn how to:
Scout a location, taking in all considerations.
Light the location using continuous and / or flash to fit the mood we are looking for.
Blend ambient light and light we introduce for natural looking images.
Pose our model Edie for maximum impact and great composition.

Terry is the Societies environmental portrait photographer of the year and holds 4 Fellowships in photography, Edie is an experienced working model with a fantastic unique look, Sarah is a fully qualified MUA and special effects artist.

Whether you are inexperienced with lighting and working with a model, or a seasoned shooter wanting to hone your skillset, this workshop will benefit you.

This is a learning / portfolio building day, and you will receive tuition as required on camera craft, lighting, location selection and posing your model in a fun and relaxed environment.

No previous knowledge of working with a model and lighting will be assumed and guidance will be given as needed and will cover the basics through to more advanced techniques in a hands on fun way ensuring that you have plenty of one to one instruction and shooting time.

You will need a camera capable of shooting in manual mode, a lens with a focal length of 24-70 is idea, although wider or longer lenses can be used. Bring lots of enthusiasm to learn and take pictures. This event will be a full on day, with plenty of learning, plenty of shooting and plenty of fun.

A light lunch is included on the day but if you have any special dietary requirements you are advised to bring a packed lunch.

Due to the condition and nature of the building there is no wheelchair access. You must be able to climb stairs and be reasonably mobile, you partake in this workshop at your own risk.
