Join Hannah Couzens at a Profoto Academy Workshop dedicated to all things light shaping and image creation. 

What's included in the day:

  • Getting started with flash: If you are new to flash and find you just can't get the results you are looking for, Hannah is here to help.
  • One-light portrait: Hannah will show you various techniques including bouncing and modifying the light to improve your results using flash both on and off-camera, whilst comparing the outcomes.
  • Seeing and shaping the light with the environment: You will be shown how to find the best light shaper for the scene whilst learning to balance ambient light with flash, both inside and outside.
  • Flash for effect: The use of colour and light can dramatically change the feeling of a shot, so using a range of light shaping tools Hannah will focus on adding atmosphere and depth to take your images to the next level.

This exclusive workshop will consist of a full day of learning and capturing different setups in an inspiring location. You will start by learning the basics of lighting and gradually progress through the knowledge ladder throughout the day. With the opportunity to take the day's learning into your own hands by shooting models both outside and in, Hannah will take you through every step of lighting an image, from creating natural, beautiful light, through to shooting additional creative setups.

Alongside Hannah, the Profoto UK team will be around to assist you with anything you need, and as a bonus, we will be joined by a representative from Wex Photo Video and Epson, who will be providing you with a free A3 print to take home from the day. And did we mention that we will have a delicious lunch alongside beverages and snacks throughout the day with the chance to explore the beautiful venue? Bonus!

Who this workshop is aimed at:

This workshop is dedicated to teaching you how to create beautiful light with flash. If you are new to the world of lighting, are struggling with your current setups or simply want to take your photography to the next level by having greater flexibility, then this workshop is for you.
