Create Artistic Portraits
With 
Only Natural Light,
In Any Weather - Without
Any Additional Equipment, And
Without Retouching

2-DAY WORKSHOP
For DSLR and Mirrorless camera owners who aspire to artistic results

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.

3-Step System

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.

It's For You If You...

Have a good camera, but can’t take good photos of people, consistently.

 

Struggle with bad light and harsh shadows.

 

Feel helpless when people don’t know how to pose - and you don’t know how to direct them.

Don't want to pay for renting a studio every time you want to take some good people shots.

 

Spend too much time retouching your images, because you can’t get them right straight from the camera.

You Will Learn How To:

  • Use natural light to create studio-like portraits anywhere - even in your living room

  • Get great results in any weather

  • Turn cluttered background into pitch black in your camera, before pressing the shutter​

  • Direct & pose people, especially complete amateurs

  • Capture natural expressions, emotions and personality

  • Make your photos perfect straight from camera, without any retouching
