Diamonds workshop

The last creative portrait workshop I ran for 2021 was the much-awaited and many times postponed Marilyn Monroe inspired workshop. Model Jess was born for this role, however, we had a slight hiccup in the fact that she was actually 20 weeks pregnant by the time we got around to running this workshop! The tight…

Rock n Roll workshop

Before we closed the studio for the year, we had two final creative portrait workshops, which had been postponed more times than I care to admit. But finally, it happened. So we had two fabulous sessions of our 1950’s Rock n Roll Workshop. We had some basic staging with some corny props, oversized records and…

Sadly due to continuous date changes…

Autumn Workshops – Macro in the gardens

Autumn Workshops – Steam Punk with Alexia

I have always had a fascination with Steampunk, I adore working with it in the studio. I guess many people do, as my Steam Punk workshops are often sold out. This one sure was. We were really lucky with the weather again and could leave the main doors open for most of the workshop. Gives…

Summer Workshops – 1920’s with Emily

Recently I had a whole weekend of 1920’s inspired shoots, just a coincidence, but still so much fun. I ran a workshop with Emily, one that had been postponed since March 2020, thanks to you know who! Finally we managed to get it done. It was a small group in between lockdowns, but glad to…

Summer Workshops – Still Life

I recently ran my first Still Life workshop in quite a while, it was lovely to get back to basics. Initially, I thought it may not go ahead, due to poor bookings, but a week before the class it was full with a waitlist, funny how things work out. One of the ladies (and this…
