The Newborn Workshops – Training

As many of you know I run the Newborn Workshops along with Maddy Rogers. We have been doing this for many years now and love passing on our knowledge and expertise to others.

2016 see’s changes, There will be two sessions, a morning session and an afternoon session , you can purchase one or both the choice is yours.

The morning session will see Maddy and I dedicating this time to many aspects of Newborn Photography, paying close attention to the safety go the newborn.

In summary, the main things to be gained from our Newborn Morning Workshops are:

  • Preparing parents for the session
  • Managing parents expectations
  • Setting up for sessions
  • Safe posing and pose flowing
  • Soothing and how to get baby to sleep
  • How to use sleep patterns to obtain the best posing with the deepest sleep

All skill levels are welcome, but it is assumed that you will have a basic understanding of manual DSLR settings, including shutter speeds, aperture and ISO settings. Knowledge of Photoshop is preferable.

You will need to bring your own DSLR and lens. All the mentors primarily use a 50mm lens with newborns so that would be our recommendation, however, if you are happy to work with a different lens, that’s fine by us.  Please remember extra memory cards and batteries.

Lunch is only provided for those attending a full day covering both workshops.

THE DAY OF THE WORKSHOP – 1pm  – Two newborn models will be available for posing.
