Only Natural Light
You can take gorgeous, artistic portraits without having to pay for a studio, and without any lighting equipment.
In fact, without any additional equipment at all.
Just you, your camera, and your model.
And in any weather - sunny, cloudy or rainy.
You just need to know where to find great natural light around you, and how to use it. Where and how to position your model.
The best natural light is often in the most unexpected, ordinary places. Places that you wouldn't even think of.
Perfect Without Editing
Most people photography courses will teach you how to take a decent shot - then how to manipulate it to perfection in Photoshop, often beyond recognition.
I don't do that.
I teach how to make your portraits perfect straight from the camera, so there is no need for any editing later.
How to create a finished image in the viewfinder, before pressing the shutter.
How to show people's real beauty, without digital manipulation.
Learn my easy-to-use 3-step system, that reflects 3 essential ingredients of great people photography.
A system that you can use yourself to create gorgeous portraits consistently, anywhere, and with anyone.
Results With Anyone
You don’t need professional models to create images like these.
You can get those results with complete amateurs.
You just need to know how to direct and pose them.
How to engage and interact with your model to get the best out of them.
How to make them relaxed, comfortable and confident in front of your camera.
How to capture emotions, natural expressions, and personality of your subject.
I'm Pawel Lipski
I'm an international photography coach, based in Zurich, Switzerland.
I specialise exclusively in people photography in natural light - including portraits, boudoir and travel portraits.
Because to me, people are the most fascinating photographic subjects, with an endless variety of faces, expressions and emotions.
I spent over 10 years perfecting the ways to use natural light to create studio-like portraits anywhere, in any weather.
Over time, I have filtered down everything I learned into a handful of the most powerful techniques - and structured them into a "3 Steps to Stunning Portraits" training system.
In this workshop, you will learn where to find great natural light around you, and how to use it to create artistic, studio-like portraits.
You will learn my entire 3-step system. All 17 techniques.
We will practice them together, until you get them.
You will start taking photos like these yourself, within hours.
This workshop will change your entire experience of people photography, forever.
