Product Photography Masterclass

Clayhill Arts is a wonderful art venue close to Bridgewater in Somerset. I was born a few miles away in Aisholt so this area is close to my heart and it’s wonderful to see new venues and creative events popping up. I’ll be down there over the weekend 3/4 August, the plan is to run a Squarespace website workshop on Sunday 3 and possibly offer some location photoshoots on 1 and/or 5 August. Do get in touch if you are interested.

The session will start with a brief presentation with images shot by Yeshen and a few of case studies and will then move on to cover practical tips and live demos showing you how to shoot a variety of product types from ceramics and textiles to prints, jewellery and stationery. Please bring a few of your own products if you wish them to be used in the demo
