Film Photography Workshop
Today I did a scary thing.
I listened to what the people in my Facebook group That Fine Art Life said they wanted & I gave it to them.
I launched a Film Photography Workshop!
As a film wedding photographer I have a niche, a specialisation, I offer something different and its something I get asked about a lot.
I don’t know if you know this but…
The amazing Jose Villa loaded my very first roll of film. ⠀
YES – The Godfather of film photography.
I’m not sure how many wedding photographers can say that.
He loaded my first roll of film for me.
I shot it on one of HIS contax 645s. ⠀
Imagine my fear of dropping / breaking it!
That’s a bit like borrowing Kate Moss’ YSL shoes…intimidating much??
It was 2015 and I was attending his workshop in Mexico. ⠀
He was warm & encouraging and when he thrust his camera at me and told me to load a roll of film, he noticed my blank response and loaded the first roll…⠀
He probably didn’t realise at the time but that day he initiated my own love story with film photography. ⠀
Since then I have been shooting film, honing my ability & falling deeper in love with a medium which creates the most stunning results & reconnect me to why I started this journey in the first place.⠀
SO here I am for the very first time announcing:
*Introduction to Film Wedding Photography Online Course.*
– 4 x Approx 1 hour LIVE zoom session once a week over the course of a month (on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday during the day TBD)
– Your own private Facebook group where these videos will be stored so you can refer back or if you miss a session. The fb group will also be the place to post your questions so I can cover them in the Q&A at the end of the sessions!
– Topics covered: different film stocks, the main film camera options, loading film, metering, your film lab, pushing, pulling film, using film in your business.
– At the end of the 4 weeks we all will meet up in person, have a coffee, I will bring my film cameras for you to have a look, you can each shoot a roll on one of them (you’re going to want to try the contax!) I’ll have something pretty for you to shoot!
= EARLY BIRD PRICE £350 before the end of January!
Price will go up in FEBRUARY!
The Film Photography Workshop course itself will take place in March!
