If you can imagine being included amongst a line up of some of your heroes, thats pretty much exactly how I feel after the recent announcement of Farm Week 2016. Alongside the talents of Samm Blake, Ryan Muirhead and Martin Parr, I am really excited to announce that on Thursday 11th February 2016, I have been invited back to teach my Fine Art Of Boudoir Masterclass at Photography Farm for it’s third year!
If you’re new to the blog, let me fill you in on Photography Farm. Farm is a brilliant concept founded by photographer Lisa Devlin, with the aim of bringing together like-minded photographers from all over the world to learn, inspire, grow, energise, rejuvenate and create. Held at Ridge Farm in Dorking, Photography Farm curates a range of residential and non residential workshops throughout the year from some of the world’s leading professional photographers.
My Fine Art Of Boudoir Masterclass is perfect for anyone looking to add Boudoir to their repertoire of photography skills or as an additional service for Wedding Photography packages. Drawing from my years of experience in the realms of burlesque, lingerie and boudoir, you’ll spend a day with me in a glorious four poster boudoir, learning everything from how to highlight your client’s best assets through the art of posing, whilst concealing or flattering those problems areas your client may feel self conscious about.
In the morning we’ll play an interactive posing game, where you will have the chance to practise guiding your subject into a range of standing, sitting and reclining poses to add to your arsenal of skills. We will then introduce a model into the boudoir scenario, where you’ll have a chance to put your new skills to the test and shoot a range of images for your portfolio across a range of different lingerie looks and make up styles. Throughout the boudoir masterclass, you will be given the chance to work with both available light and Elinchrom studio lighting, helping you to explore and find your own unique boudoir style.
In the final hour of the workshop, I will present a boudoir based marketing strategy over tea and cake, giving you an insight into how things run at Tigz Rice Studios. From making sure clients turn up prepared for their shoot to managing client expectations before, during and after their time in front of the camera, you will leave with a whole other string to your bow plus some great portfolio images.
If you want to see what we got up to last year, you can read all about the Fine Art Of Boudoir Masterclass on my blog. Alternatively, why not see what a couple of the attendees, Zoe and Ellie, wrote on their blogs about the experience. Spaces are limited on all workshops and masterclasses, so book early to avoid disappointment. I hope to see a few of you there!
