2015 Photography Workshops
Matthew Osborne Photography
For 2015 I plan to advertise less group photography workshop dates as I find most people are wanting 1-2-1 photography tuition. I dont advertise 1-2-1 sessions as people come to me as and when required. I have photographers visit me for lessons from across Europe and I find I teach mostly either in my Coventry studio or in London for location shoots. Some photographers book me for one day, others for several days in a row depending on their needs. I try to meet most people’s requests and never find distance or location a restriction. The most common topics I am asked to teach are portrait photography, lighting for portrait photography, using avaialble light, speedlights, studio lights, how to work with a model, how to operate a Leica M camera for any style of photography, how to work with analogue film cameras, 35mm, medium format and large format film and also how to try to make money from your photography.
Photography workshop cost
For 2015 the pricing structure will change slightly to accommodate the cost of hiring a model. I am now teaching regularly so cannot expect the same models helping me to work for print (“TFP”)(Time for Print). As with most things in life you get what you pay for to an extent. If you want an experienced model needing little or no direction that can provide you with high quality portfolio photos you will generally pay more then if you just need a face to learn portrait lighting. Some photographers with more experience want me to take a back seat and let them lead and direct the model. Other photographers with little or no experience want to see how I work and shadow me for the day shooting over my shoulder as I pose and direct a model. Shadow me days are cheaper as models get my images from the day as part of their payment for their portfolio.
