Masterclass at The Forge in Bristol

Would you like to spend a day with two professionals well versed in the art of creating stunning images? Join me and stylist Hilary Lowe for this one day masterclass. This will be my second session at The Forge, following my one day product photo workshop back in April 2018. I often run workshop, talks and other education sessions. In the past I have worked with organisations The Design Trust, Crafty Fox Market, The Crafts Council and Cockpit Arts. If you are interested in what I can do for you, visit:

This workshop is aimed at makers, designers and independent stores who want to succeed in creating a product and to then style and shoot their own images. The cost is £150 for the full day. Book early to avoid dissapointment, there is limited space.

We will start with a presentation on styling and photography followed by case studies and examples of photography from our location shoots in Wales and Hampshire.

This will be followed by the chance for you to set up your own product shots and get styling and photography tips from us as we move around the room with the chance to listen to advice on a variety of products often relevant to all.

You will learn how to:

Prepare for your photoshoot.

Select the right props for your shoot.

Create product images and website banner shots that sell.

Create compelling images for press.

Generate more buzz on social media with your photos.
