Level and cameras required: Digital camera preferably a dSLR. Open to all levels yet knowing how to set your camera settings is a minimum, and some basic notions of photography are helpful.


Flash in studio beauty seminar with individual one on one shooting times. Specialised course for learning beauty photography, professional agency model, and very talented make up artist will team up to provide an excellent portfolio building experience. I will go through every step of how to light, what to watch for, and what to avoid. What make these seminars unique is the very intimate experience with the model ( the other participants will be off set while you are shooting ) for each of your shooting sessions. The seminar will give you an opportunity to better understand and modify light specifically for women by shooting individually with the model in each scenario. Studio : the ideal location, an artists daylight studio with southwest exposure. Lights used will depend on the weather and can include ambient, HMI continuous, and or flash, yet we will start with flash.

Number of participants is limited to 4 maximum which assures you will have lots of quality time to shoot. Neil Snape will be there to instruct and guide you in throughout each stage. His method is always to demonstrate the most efficient, simplified ways of obtaining excellent results in a non technical way. By far the most important element starts with observation, and what you learn in this seminar is valid for any shooting environments not limited to studio work.

You will discover multiple types of light and how to mix them for each situation. We will start with natural or sometimes called nude make up which is the required beauty shot for model’s books. The following set ups will have more creative make up, and the light adapted to each situation. We will touch on some post production with the use of LightRoom.

Model : TBA, agency will confirm a few days before.

Experienced agency model, specialised in beauty, knowing how to pose will makes it easy to produce excellent images from the very start. The model will be confirmed a few days before the workshop. The agency will, at their discretion replace the model with a suitable replacement if there is a scheduling problem.

Make up artist: Sylvie Mainville
