Photography Workshops For Creative Business Owners

Are you a designer or maker of lovely products that you sell online?

Are you a creative business owner using images for blogging and social media?

If you are struggling to take pictures that really show how great your products are then this workshop will help you understand the best camera settings, find or create the perfect light and style your products like a pro!

Bring along your camera, bring something you make and a few of the props you might use for styling and join in a fun and relaxed workshop where you will learn:

  • Basic camera skills including how to focus correctly and how to blur backgrounds.
  • Different types of natural light and how to recognise them.
  • How to manipulate natural light and what to do if there isn’t enough.
  • Styling with props and backgrounds to complement your products.
  • How to position your product for maximum effect.
  • Some simple image editing skills to enhance your photographs.

This is a hands on workshop so you will get to try out the camera settings as you learn them and experiment with styling set ups in small groups.

This workshop is ideal for anyone selling on Etsy, Not On The High Street or any platform that requires a high standard of creative, lifestyle photography to promote products. Its also perfect for anyone that may sell through shops or other outlets but needs quality images for blogging and social media.

Some lovely feedback from previous attendees:

“Just wanted to say thank you so much for today’s workshop. It was so interesting , I learnt such a lot and I’m feeling much more confident about taking pictures of my stuff.”

“It was a marvellous day that everyone learned from and got fabulous value for money”

“Thank you for listening to my many questions and helping me to think in a different way about my ‘style’ and how I want my brand to be portrayed. That was really valuable, and you had some great ideas. I loved that you bought alternative props and backgrounds for us to try and you advised us on tweaks here and there to improve our photo’s.”
