Portraiture Workshop with Kirsty Mackay

27th September 2014

10am to 4.30pm

Portrait photographer Kirsty Mackay will hold this one-day workshop on portrait photography. Kirsty has specialised in portrait photography for the past 15 years. The course will cover interior and street portraits, using window light and daylight. Through a series of practical exercises you will learn how to light your subject, how to make people feel at ease in front of your camera and how to make photographing strangers less daunting.

Participants should bring their own DSRL camera, a laptop would be desirable but is not essential. If you want to join this workshop but you don’t have equipment please contact us and we will try to find an alternative. No prior knowledge of photography technique is required for this workshop.

There is a discount for students from colleges or universities, you will have to bring your student card on the day.
