Hollywood Style Portrait

The ‘40s glamour portrait

From the shoot to the print we are going to re-create that fabulous and particular style.

  • Setting up the lights, finding the right diffuser and the proper angle for the camera.
  • Choosing the proper lens and seeing the options we can find around.
  • Find the “original” and “particular” modifier to get that classic style.
  • Do not forget the background.
  • Once the set is ready we will work with the model.
  • The importance of the make-up: The workshop includes basic make-up techniques for you to re-create
  • Understanding the poses and the position of the hands.
  • After getting some amazing shots we will go to the next level. Working with Photoshop© or Lightroom© or any image editor we will finish the images giving them that allusion of flawless skin.

At the end of the day, you will go home also with a beautiful B/W print of one of the images you made during the workshop.

And that will not be all…..the best thing is that you will be able to reproduce the technique at home without the professional studio lights.


This course can be booked on a 1 to 1 tutored class or on small groups.


4 Hours


1 to 1 tutoring: £ 120.- (plus 50% if you want to bring a guest with you)

This Workshop can be delivered using a live model or not.

You can bring your own model or we can provide one but her charge will be added too (Our experience showed that, unless model direction is required, a mannequin will do the job as the most important thing is to learn how to manage the lights and cameras – you can save on hiring the model – talk to us about it).


Free Car Park available


Beginners/Intermediate: Note: no technical knowledge of photography required but it is advisable to know how to use your own camera so we can focus on the subject of the course itself.
