Masterclass portrait photography
A powerful portrait must connect the viewer to the subject and emotion. Beyond the necessary technique and timing, observation and empathy are vital for impact. Brendan is focussing in his Masterclass Portrait Photography on all these essentials.
If you love people and capturing the essence of their personality, then a masterclass might be something for you.
For beginner and intermediate portrait photographers there is a one full day Masterclass available upon request and availability. The group size is usually around ten people, condensed enough to get personal attention and large enough for interesting interaction.
You will have the chance to photographs character model and work with a professional team and lighting equipment. Please use the contact form to raise your interest and we will do our utmost to try to group and match the masterclass location and required material.
