If you have yet to master studio lighting, perhaps your struggling to get to grips with it or perhaps you’re entirely new to the genre, then this one day Introduction To Studio Lighting Course based in Stilton, Peterborough will help you to learn and improve your photography.
Studio photography doesn’t need to be expensive and you don’t need to own a spare room full of fancy gear to do it. We’ll talk through all the equipment we own and show the difference between all of the different modifiers we use, allowing you to decide which works best for you before purchasing any additional equipment.
Things you will learn on this workshop:
- What different lighting modifiers do and how and when we use them.
- The different qualities of light. Hard v Soft light.
- Where to place your lights, how far away from the subject they should be and how this impacts your images.
- The falloff of light and how to change background colours using only light.
- The 5 most used lighting patterns used by photographers to sculpt the face.
- How to setup your lights and trigger them wirelessly.

Jane Seymour “Having tried my hardest to learn studio lighting from YouTube I gave up in the end confused and frustrated that I wasn’t getting the results that I was seeing other people getting on the screen. I was clearly doing something wrong but I didn’t know what that was. Paul’s introduction to studio lighting course was exactly what I needed. He showed us all exactly how he lights his studio portraits and then we recreated the setup on our own so I left confident that I was able to do this on my own and achieve the same results. Paul’s knowledge appears to be endless, I never thought I could learn so much in a single day.”
Phillip Jones “I didn’t know a single thing about studio lighting when I came on the course. I left feeling confident in my abilities to do everything we’d practiced on the day on my own and have since put it into practice with my own clients. Paul is an amazing teacher, fun, friendly and down to earth. Thoroughly recommended.”
Kerry Hughes “My partner and I joined Paul and a small group of fellow photographers on his studio lighting workshop with the aim of improving our portrait photography. The biggest compliment I can give is that my partner and I both said on the drive home that it was totally worth the money and he could have charged 5 times what he did. It has transformed the way we think about both lighting and portraits in general. Paul know’s his stuff and it’s clear he has been working every day doing this for years as he was able to solve all the challenges we through at him effortlessly.”
Johnathon James “Oh my goodness how lost I was! I can’t even begin to tell you how annoying it is to not be able to achieve the images you want to. This was the situation I was in and why I signed up to the beginners lighting masterclass Paul runs. He’s a great teacher, takes the time to talk to everybody individually and ensures that you have understood exactly what he has just explained. I no longer feel lost with studio photography, I’ve been set off in the right direction and I’m not looking back.”
Sarah Swan “Thank you so much for a fantastic workshop, I got out of it everything that I had hoped I would. Excellent.”
