Product Description

Be an Artist. Live Your Dream…
This Brand New BIG value action packed 1 day workshop is a must for those who want to take the mystery out of using strobe lighting, learn to become a creative force and THINK LIKE AN ARTIST!

We are flying Joel Grimes in from the USA and currently offering a Early Discount for this exclusive UK workshop.


Throw out those lighting diagrams, those annoying lighting ratios and sell your flash-meter on eBay. Well, that may be a bit drastic, but think about this; a technical instrument can never make a creative artistic decision, this is reserved for the human mind. Over the day Joel will be covering how to use all sorts of modifiers such as soft boxes, the beauty dish, octagon banks, umbrellas, grids, etc., while working from an intuitive, feeling approach. This is without question the key to the whole creative process. You will be presented with ways on how to develop your personal creative vision that is unique to you.

Joel will be having 2 amazing models, one beauty and one sports. Each of the attendees will have an opportunity to experiment with the various lighting techniques covered in the lectures, so bring your basic camera kit! And not to be overlooked, I will be covering my Photoshop techniques used in my photographs, including the HDR techniques used for all my backgrounds. I hold back nothing in revealing my photographic process. To finish the workshop off, my last session “Thriving in the Marketplace”, is designed to prepare and encourage photographers to get out and create a income with their craft.



Is this for me?

This workshop is ideal if you want to gain valuable insight and skills into creative photography, compositing, crafting a mind-blowing image and sharpen your Photoshop skills!

You will need a basic digital camera kit with at least one medium focal length zoom lens for a few prime lenses that cover semi wide angle to semi telephoto. A tripod is not mandatory, but if you want to create some HDR background it would be advisable. Also, a laptop is not required, but if you want to do any editing and post process please bring one.

You will have the opportunity to shoot and put you new found skills into practice.
