Beautiful portraits Leigh On Sea, Essex

So every few months, myself and Paul, run photography courses, based in Leigh on Sea in Essex. We cover a variety of subjects, suitable for the real beginners, through to the pro’s, with our portraiture and wedding courses!

Previous courses have been very successful, and this was the last one of the year, as we are heavily reliant on good weather (most of our courses are practical and thus we are outside!) but we got lucky! It wasn’t too cold and the light, fabulous to use!

We knew we had a wonderful model, and were really excited to get out there and show our shooting techniques! Paul on hand with my enormous reflector!

The morning was spent going over portfolios, and the theory behind children’s portraiture, we touched on the technicalities of shooting on location, but as with most of these things it’s better to get out there and put things into practice!

The afternoon was spent on location in Leigh On Sea, on an extremely atmospheric day! The mist was amazing, the tide was out and we managed to shoot some fabulous portraits of our wonderful Lizzie!

The styling of the shoot, was something we had to consider, as we had shot before in the summer, I decided to buy a beautiful scarf and hat set, that I thought would co-ordinate with the neutral colours of the Leigh landscape, and a bridesmaids dress from my daughters collection!

All delegates were able to have time with our model, as at only SIX, Lizzie is easy one of the best little ones I have worked with in over 15 years as a portrait photographer.
