Portraits on location

  • Dillington House Illminster Somerset TA19 9DX (map)

Fine art portrait workshop, Somerset UK

Dillington House, Somerset
Cost: £350

The art of fine art portraits in the beautiful setting of Dillington House.

An intensive day of encouraging you to acquire the skills to implement ideas that you have for your work. Above all, you will be invited to reach into your creative self to take away new ideas and the confidence to use these within your business. 

It is particularly relevant in todays digital world to show your clients that your skills are untouchable, that your photography is out of reach of the most sophisticated camera, or phone. This involves having the the knowledge of how to implement your ideas using light,  the environment, connection and the ability to make something out of ordinary situations which we are often faced with in the real world of running a photographic business. It’s about stripping things back to the bare soul of a portrait and enjoying simplicity and the challenge of making something beautiful from the minimum. The group is kept to just 6 people in order for us to work together and to maximise your time with me, enabling me to give each student individual time.

We will spend time within the grounds of Dillington - in not always the most obvious of locations, but selecting some of the more ordinary backdrops. You will be encouraged to implement ideas and hopefully overcome some of those nagging areas which are maybe preventing you from moving forward.
