John Clements will be your host. A highly respected photographer and workshop presenter, plus Profoto Ambassador. You will have an opportunity to use Profoto’s Lighting System, world renowned for its quality and capabilities. A go to product for many of the worlds finest photographers.
Images will be created using the Profoto B1 and Profoto B2 Off Camera (OCF) lighting options. Both have changed the way many now look at lighting with the power and light shaping of traditional studio lighting, but with the portability and dedication of ‘Speedlight’ type flash. This day is also ideal for anyone wishing to progress lighting skills, from the beginner to the pro.
We will create a wide variety of images, with step-by-step explanation as we go, and lots of real world tips and tricks. John has an amazing background to draw upon, both as a photographer and technical expert, (he was formally the ‘Advisor On Photography for Nikon UK).
The course will be based in our Liverpool stores studio, but weather permitting, will explore all the potential both inside and outside. The content will therefore be based around real world photography needs, covering portraits, fashion, and wedding shooting techniques and more.
Delegates will also be able to use and explore, the Profoto lighting system at various times during the day for themselves. Alongside the B1 & B2 flash units, there will be a selection from the Profoto range of ‘Light Shaping Tools’, and expert advice from Profoto UK will also be on hand.
