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. 

 

The best natural light is often in the most unexpected, ordinary places. Places you wouldn't even think of. You would pass them on the street, without even looking.

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.

How to create a finished image in the viewfinder, before pressing the shutter.

How to show people's real beauty, without digital manipulation.

3-Step System

There are 3 essential components of great people photography. These are the three things that you always have to get right to create beautiful images of people.

 

And these are the 3 steps of my system. A system that you can use yourself to get results like mine within days.

Results With Anyone

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.

2-Day Workshop

In this transformational workshop, I will show you where to find great natural light around you, and how to use it to create artistic, studio-like portraits. How to direct and pose people.

We will practice with men & women, with professionals & amateurs.

You will get face-to-face coaching and instant feedback.

Schedule

DAY 1

10:00-18:00

LEARN

my complete 3-step system

This is where I will explain all 17 techniques included in my system - so that you have a clear framework in your head when we start practicing

 

PRACTICE

with a professional female model

Here we will practice these 17 techniques - but not in isolation. We will practice them as a system, so you can see how those 3 essential ingredients of great people photography magically come together, in your own camera. I will show you how to do each technique, then you do it, and then I will check your results to make sure that everyone got it right.

Q&A

and homework for Day 2

I will answer any burning questions, and explain how to select your best photos for review next day 

DAY 2

10:00-18:00

REVIEW

best shots from Day 1

I will feedback on your best shots, to fix recurring issues and get inspired by everyone's images

 

PRACTICE 

with a professional male model

Here you will learn how to pose men, and how to use light differently with them - and how to shoot B&W and make it perfect straight from the camera.

 

PRACTICE 

with amateur models

Now each participant becomes a model for 15-20 mins - so you can practice posing complete amateurs (up to 9 people). And when it's your turn to be a model, you will see what it's like to be directed, what's helpful and what isn't.

Camera vs Skill

2 factors determine the quality of your images. Your:

CAMERA

SKILL

 

Which one do you think is more important?

You probably guessed it right. It is your skill.

It's funny how many people invest their money in the exact opposite order.

They spend thousands on expensive cameras, and are surprised that their images don't get any better.

1st Lesson FREE

In this 30-minute lesson, I will show you where to find the best natural light, and how to use it to get studio-like portraits.

 

Straight from the camera, without any editing.

 

This is just one of several natural light techniques that I teach at my workshops.

And no, it's not about camera settings :)
