Flash Photography Workshop


Up your Speedlite game, especially for your wedding and portrait work!

Join like-minded photographers learning to shoot like a pro in this Flash Photography Workshop. The workshop is dedicated purely to mastering your Speedlites, and as a result, allow you to easily create images you never thought possible.

  • We learn the basics of your flash, first of all in manual and then more sophisticated TTL.
  • Focus on getting your camera and speedlite talking the same language (and how to repeat it again and again!).
  • How to establish the best exposure, and therefore how to balance the flash and background explore to control your look. 
  • Further to this we get the speedlites Off-Camera to start to shoot with controlled modelling shape and direction.
  • Finally we explore using modifiers such as soft boxes and diffusers for your speedlite
  • Equally important I will demonstrate some beautiful lighting techniques quickly and easily.

All students will require a digital slr, speedlite (your flash), off-camera sync cable or wireless trigger.

The day will be held in four sections designed to introduce you to flash functions and techniques.

  • Getting Started & Basic Flash Operations
  • Basic On-Camera Flash; Fill-Flash and Bounce Flash Techniques
  • Off-Camera Flash Location Shoots
  • Using Your Flash To Create a Studio Anywhere

This Flash Photography Workshop also includes professional models to shoot with us. This way we can simultaneously shoot, learn and get instant feedback!




For example learn to set up studio-style lighting anywhere!

Finally learn how to balance ambient exposure and flash for a ‘natural’ look.

You can easily set up a home studio because of the speedlite’s portability
