Portfolio Building Workshops


Have you ever seen behind the scenes footage of a high end fashion magazine location shoot and dreamed of one day being able to do the same? That day has arrived.


Exotic locations, beautiful models, stylists and all the professional equipment for an epic shoot. We cater for all levels of photography, from beginner to pro - we can give instruction and  guidance or just let you shoot stunning images. 


We will also shoot behind the scenes stills and video of you shooting on location, so you can share your epic shoots with your followers.




Marbella & Almeria Desert: October 2019


 13-17 October : Model shoot with makeup artist and wardrobe stylist. Five Shoot Days : 


Option 1) £350 per day. You choose how many days and which days. It does not include accommodation, flights, food or drinks. 


Option 2) £1,250  (£500  deposit now)

Price includes transport from / to Marbella to  the shoot locations. It does not include food or flights and accommodation but we can help with that if needed.


We will shoot  beautiful agency models in stunning locations including beach, mountain, lake and desert. 


The shoots will be styled professionally  with several looks per day and five different locations in total, giving you a whole new portfolio.


Equipment we will be taking includes:


A life-sized light tent which can be used as a soft light diffuser or as a portable outdoor studio.

Metal frame diffusers and reflectors with stands (6' x 4', 6' x 6', 8'x4' and 8'x8')

Bowens Studio Lights and a Bowens Travelpak for battery powered location shoots.


Photographer Brendan Bishop will teach you:


How to control both natural and studio light.
How to give posing direction to the models

However, If you do not want tuition, it will not be forced on you!


Model details will be uploaded soon. We are working in partnership with Target Models International who will be providing models, make-up artist and wardrobe stylist.


Please Note:  This workshop is unlike most others due to the equipment we will be taking. The light tent alone with a reflector provides a very unique soft light with good contrast even at high noon with no cloud cover. Add a  powerful studio light with a large beauty dish, and you get a very unique high end look which will make your images stand out from the masses.


Below is a lighting sample of an image taken at high noon at a beach, using the light tent and a beauty dish:



Some of the equipment we will be taking is shown below:
