Photography workshop in southampton

Yesterday we took Gareth to Beaulieu for his One-2-One getting to know your camera workshop and we had a great day.   We met Gareth and his now wife Genevieve when we shot his wedding back in September 2008. Last year how lovely wife Genevieve called to buy a Workshop Gift Voucher for Gareth which he used yesterday,   We started our day with a couple of hours in the studio going over his Canon 450 camera and how to get the best from it, we then headed to Beaulieu which is fast becoming a popular workshop venue for us during the winter months :-).  We had a great few hours at Beaulieu showing Gareth how to shoot in low light and also how to compose and crop in camera.

After Beaulieu we headed into the forest for a few landscapes which was fun and then back to the Studio for an afternoon of editing and shooting Gareth how to best present his photographs.

Here are a few photos from the day,  My favourite is the 5th photo that Gareth took of the Merc with the lights behind although it was hard to decide because he took so many great ones.

workshop with a twist.

I dont normally post much about our workshops here but this was a great story as posted on our workshop website!,  I hope you enjoy it.

A couple of years ago I started talking to a lady on Facebook, Cathie Gardner Adams and it soon became clear that Cathie loved her photography just like me, well soon after chatting I was helping Cathie hone her skills with her Nikon D300 and we because friends,  Cathie lives in Redondo Beach, which is one of the three Beach Cities in Los Angeles County, California, United States so apart from a few conversations online I never really expected to help Cathie any further,  That was until Cathie decided to book one of our workshops to kick off her vacation here in the UK,    Cathie flew into London on Thursday night and came to stay with us in on of our B&B rooms, we had a few cocktails and a lot of laughs and then Friday morning we all headed off to our workshop studiosfor the real fun to begin.

Cathie had chosen one of our “getting to know your camera” workshops which as always starts with the camera settings and a few tips and tricks, after a couple of hours we headed off for Marwell zoo and it was such an amazing day, the sun shone and all but the snow leopards came out to play so Cathie got some amazing shots that made her very happy and me a very proud.

We then headed back to the studio to go over our trip, download our photos and of course edit them, we had such a great time and Cathie took some amazing photos which I am sure you will agree.

Cathie’s photography has gone from the ordinary (she wont mind me saying that I promise) to the extraordinary, each and every photo has that WOW factor and I am pleased and proud to have a big part in that transformation.

This morning after 2 nights we dropped Cathie off at the train station to head off to Bristol, then Bath, Glastonbury, and Edinburgh and we wish her a safe and enjoyable trip, cant wait to see some photos!

Here are a few that Cathie took yesterday at Marwell during our workshop,  you too could be shooting like this if you call and book a course!

These were all shot through either cages, wire or very thick glass, all of which we cover on our courses.

One of our photo workshops!

Yesterday morning we ran a half day photo workshop for John Welsh who we had met at a wedding in 2009.  His partner Vicki purchased the day as a photo gift voucher for John.  John is an artist who paints oil on canvas and uses his photographs for inspiration, with this in mind John wanted to improve his photography so he could make the most of the beautiful Hampshire countryside and the photo opportunities it has.

We took John on one of our “getting to know your camera”  workshops to the Winchester viaducts. John took some amazing and dramatic photographs with his Nikon D90 and left very excited about his artwork.

John’s day also included photoshop editing as well as a general work flow chat.

Here are a few photos from the morning photographing in Winchester.

Photography training and courses

Some of you may not know but Sue and I offer all sorts of photo training, check out our new website for course details.

Who better to learn from?

When you want to master something, better learn from the masters. Perhaps you’re already a pro, looking for a specialist course on boudoir or saucy shoots. Or perhaps you’re looking to set yourself up as a professional photographer. Why not learn from Julian Porter Photography?

Jules and Sue are among the most-respected photography professionals in the country. They’re both proud members of the Master Photographers Association (MPA) and the British institute of Professional Photographers (BIPP), and currently handle around 40 high-class weddings each year plus hundreds of portraits and Boudour shoots as well as various other commisions.

Jules marries sensual artistry with digital technique to create shots of exquisite beauty and technical prowess. Sue, his wife, is an inveterate romantic with a love of photographic storytelling.

It’s a partnership that gels perfectly, providing a dual perspective on weddings, Christenings, baby days, makeovers, location shoots and studio sessions. And, in recent years, Jules and Sue have brought their particular brand of perfectionism and expertise into the boudoir, pinup and saucy-shoot markets. The move has been a huge success, with each shoot imbued with an iconic sense of taste and style.

You’ll find Julian Porter Photography in Southampton, in an contemporary studio just two minutes from the M3 and the M27 and five minutes from Southampton International Airport, making European and worldwide coverage not a problem.

 

Biography

For the biggest day of your life. For capturing your personality. For showing your saucy side. For all this and more, there’s no better choice than Julian Porter Photography.

Jules and his wife, Sue, are both proud members of the Master Photographers Association (MPA) and the British institute of Professional Photographers (BIPP) and currently handle 40 high-class weddings each year plus hundreds of portraits in their Southampton studio. Jules and Sue have both gained LMPA and LBIPP.

Those abbreviations provide you with reassurance. What they don’t prepare you for is the sense of technical prowess and artistic brilliance than Jules and Sue bring to their work on weddings, portraits, Christenings, baby days, makeovers, location shoots – and now boudoir, saucy and pinup shoots.

Today, Jules and Sue are passing on their skills – in workshops that teach you how to shoot like a pro or build a photography business. Or if you’re already there, helping you diversify into exciting and lucrative new markets. It’s an unmissable opportunity.
