Introduction

Master the techniques of shooting fine art nude in Iceland. Working with Ayla Rose and commercial photographer Dan Tidswell we will take you through the process of finding great locations and evaluating the different challenges required to produce outstanding images for your portfolio.

This is a slow paced workshop which emphasises the practical skills necessary to produce beautiful images on location. We will be travelling light and harnessing the contrasting landscapes of Iceland, which, in my opinion is the most beautiful shoot location in the world.

Using a combination of natural light, reflectors and strobes this workshop includes daytime, evening and dawn shoots that will challenge you to adapt to complex conditions to achieve professional results that will set your photography apart.

Who is this workshop for?

This workshop is aimed at amateur and established photographers looking to expand their skillset whilst producing beautiful images on location. Shooting in Iceland will be a challenging experience, this workshop aims to give you the confidence to overcome obstacles and ensure the success of your own location shoots in the future.

F.A.Q

Travel

In order to secure your place on the workshop a 50% non-refundable deposit is required at the time of booking. The balance is due on the 1st May 2018. To find out more about this workshop and to book please contact me: dan@dantidswell.co.uk or call +44(0)7880903889 between 9am-5pm GMT.

Equipment

You will need a digital SLR or Mirrorless camera to participate in this workshop. Lens choice is a personal preference, I like to shoot with a 24-70mm and a 70-200mm lens on location as I find the zoom range covers all scenarios.  All lighting equipment is provided on this workshop.

Inclement Weather

Dealing with random weather is all part of shooting on location, a little rain and or wind isn’t going to stop us creating amazing images. However, if the elements are unseasonably rough and we really cannot shoot outside we’ll switch the workshop to an indoor event, we have a backup itinerary for emergencies and we’re prepared to use it!
