Shoot & Edit




1-2-1 Portrait Photography Tuition

Model portrait photography tuition at The Loft studio with One-To-One tuition from Dan.

We will spend 4 hours working with an experienced model to shoot a range of looks using both natural light and studio strobes.

After lunch we'll harness Lightroom to organise and prepare your images before deep diving into Photoshop to retouching your images like a pro.

On completion of the day you can expect to leave with a series of beautifully retouched images for your portfolio, as well as a stack of ready to edit images ideal for you to work on using your new post-production skills


Starting with a simple natural light setup we will explore different camera settings , lens choice and lighting modifiers to shoot a verity of images for you portfolio.

After a makeup change we'll switch to studio strobes, building upon your new skills to setup a complex multi-light shoot whilst controlling every aspect of the lighting. 

I'll maximise your portrait photography tuition by supplying a Pinterest moodboard prior to the shoot so that you can narrow down the looks that you would like to export on the day of the shoot.
