SKIN Workshop

Since I started teaching photography there has never been a more necessary time for this Workshop. There is a wealth of wonderful, stunning photography out there and some absolutely horrific crimes being committed against skin in them and all in the name of beauty retouching.

If you photograph people, in any setting or style, then you'll need to retouch their skin at times. For imperfections, for erratic tanning, for skin reddening, for stray hairs, for body bulges, for elastic marks, for unwanted tattoos, for emphasis......


Over two days we will explore together my world of lighting, posing, shooting and retouching skin. On Day #1 we'll work through a range of scenes, each designed to give you a different perspective and insight into these skills. On Day #2 you'll have the opportunity to design your own shoot.

We'll be working with multiple models from the regular team in a range of art nude, lingerie and fashion looks.

So join us on the weekend of 4th and 5th April for a two day Workshop that will change your shooting, change your retouching and improve your final output. If you're wanting to get more from your portraits then this is for you. If you're a fan of negative clarity or automated Portrait software, it probably isn't!

Cost is just £345 per photographer and includes full notes, exclusive retouching actions for Photoshop and Lightroom, model licence fees for portfolio usage of your images, tuition, lunch and refreshments.

If you're staying in the Birmingham area then join John and the model team for a meal and drinks on the Saturday night.

Suitable for all levels off experience. Full tuition and support given. You only need a digital SLR, energy and passion to create beautiful images.
