Ever felt like developing some portrait photography skills? If so why not join photographer Steve Judson for one of two free workshops at the Lady Lever Art Gallery on 11 February, inspired by the Model Image: fashion and photos from the 1950s exhibition.  Each one hour photography workshop is suitable for young people aged 14 years and over and adults.   The workshop is suitable for beginners as no photography experience is necessary.

Working with models and photographing them in a unique setting is a fantastic opportunity to build upon your photography skills, so bring along your creative ideas and get the most out of this special workshop. This is a superb opportunity whether it’s your first steps in working with models or wanting to expand your portfolio.

Workshop participants will photograph 1950s costumed models Alex and David Woods to learn how to take portrait and full-length costumed photographs.

Alex Woods says, ‘having worked as a fashion designer since the 1990s I have always had a passion for the style and glamour of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s and have collected vintage clothing for over 30 years. A visit to the Goodwood Revival meeting in 2011 introduced my husband, David to the vintage scene.  We have been collecting and wearing vintage clothes and driving classic cars ever since’.

Workshop attendees will learn how to get the best photographs when working with a model, and the importance of considering what to include and what not to include in a photo.  Workshop participants will receive a printed colour copy of one of the photographs following the workshop. Attendees can bring their own camera or phone, although a small number of cameras will also be available to use on the day.
Pre booking is essential and tickets will be available on our website on 1 February.
