Empowerment Photography Masterclass: Tuesday 3rd October 2023


Would you like to shoot empowerment photography?

Maybe you’re already shooting boudoir but looking for some help with posing techniques and interacting with your models. Even better, you’ve got the posing down but need help building a portfolio. If any of those sentences describe you, you’re in the right place, because at Fontaine’s Bar on Tuesday 3rd October 2023, I will be bringing back my Empowerment Photography Masterclass for its sixth year.

The Empowerment Photography Masterclass is perfect for you if you’re looking to add empowering portraits to your repertoire of photography skills. Proving popular with seasoned portrait and wedding photographers who want to offer an additional service, the masterclass also attracts photography enthusiasts who are excited by the world of boudoir and empowerment photography and want to experience a shoot under the guidance and support of a leading industry professional.

This year, I’m excited to announce that we will be back at Fontaine’s, East London’s most decadent Art Deco cocktail bar and one of my absolute favourite places to shoot. Drawing from over a decade of experience and expertise in the realms of burlesque, lingerie and boudoir photography, you’ll spend a day with me, Tigz Rice, discovering how to capture your clients at their very best in the most beautiful of venues. This is a fully interactive masterclass, giving you the opportunity to learn and develop your skills as a photographer through being physically involved in the process. Bring your camera and make sure it’s fully charged, because you’ll be needing it! In the morning we’ll start off with a posing game, exploring traditional pin up and boudoir poses. You will practise guiding your subject into a range of standing, sitting and reclining poses, developing your skills in direction as well as establishing an empowering, body-positive dialogue to use with your clients. We will then introduce 2 models into the boudoir scenario, where you’ll have a chance to put your new skills to the test: photographing a range of images for your portfolio across a plethora of different lingerie looks and styles.

Throughout the Empowerment Photography Masterclass, you will be given the chance to get to grips with both continuous light and flash photography helping you to explore your own unique boudoir style. In the final hour of the workshop, we’ll have a Q&A, giving you an insight into the business side of boudoir photography. 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 my masterclass with the skills you need to add boudoir to your repertoire of photographic skills.

Want to join us? Attending The Empowerment Photography Masterclass will cost an investment of £450.00. Once again, the masterclass will be held on Tuesday 3rd October 2023 and will run from 10am until 4pm with 4 hours minimum of shooting time. Strictly limited to a maximum of 8 attendees, you will be split into two smaller groups of 4 photographers per model for maximum shooting time. If you want to see what we got up to last in previous years, you can read all about the Fine Art Of Boudoir Masterclass on my blog.
