Model dress code:
Damien's famous style of couples photography on the street has been celebrated the world over. Experience the off camera moments that go into creating the on camera moments. Learn how to create a set of dynamic poses that transform regular engagement photographs into romantic stills with passion.
Having a photography shoot with your clients prior to the wedding is a wonderful process that allows your wedding couple to feel at ease with you and the camera before their special day. Every delegate will have the chance to shoot each set up and you won’t move on until you all have the shot. This is all about finding the locations, drawing out the relationship chemistry, posing and creating moments to capture.
What you will learn
On this workshop you will learn fundamental and repeatable shooting techniques for 'couples' portrait photography. You will learn how to interact with your couple and generate a creative flow. Damien will teach you how to 'see' pictures where you may think none exist. You'll be working with natural light and basic speedlights. Damien will provide the Speedlight, stand and triggers for the delegates.
What you will have at the end of the day to take away
Whatever the weather you will have a beautiful set of images that you can use on your website, in your portfolio or for promotional material straight away. You will have a new repertoire of images that you can shoot and, above all, access to professional image making skills that have a high repeatable value. You will have the edge over your competition and you will (hopefully!) feel a renewed excitement for couples photography.

As our costs for each workshop remain the same no matter how many delegates attend, please note that just like any pre-booked tickets for the theatre, concert, flights etc, we are unable to give any refund in the event of non-attendance, regardless of the circumstances. The exception to this is if we have prior notice and are able to put a cancellation place back online AND your place is resold. In this event we will of course make a full refund or credit to you. We also reserve the right to cancel any workshop if there is insufficient demand, especially if it means that our costs would be higher than our income. Please therefore do not leave it until the last few weeks if you are interested in a particular date, as you may find that it has been removed! Please note that we cannot be liable for any other costs incurred by yourself, so please check with us before booking any non-refundable accommodation or transport.
