Want Some Cool Free Lightroom Presets? Course you do!

Just stumbled upon this while looking longingly at onOne Software‘s wondrous range of editing wizardry: FREE, yes, FREE!!! Lightroom presets by Matt Kloskowski – and not the usual naff, hastily assembled ones that you usually find on the interweb but some really nice quality ones. Worth going over and downloading them, I’d say. Click here. And get a move on, this offer might be around for long.



The Male Portrait

Our successful recent workshop “The Male Portrait” included the opportunity to photograph two charismatic male subjects. One, Tom, is a professional model and no stranger to Fotofilia shoots…

Our second subject, Nick, was rather less used to be in front of the camera but proved to be an excellent and very photogenic model. Nick is, apart from many other things, the lead singer and primary creative drive behind the band Telsen (who I happen to play bass guitar with)…

Bodyscapes: Cally

A few more images from a “Bodyscapes” (art nude) workshop a year or so ago (that I’ve only just got around to editing). This time, the model was the lovely Cally.

Editing these images has reminded me that I need to schedule another Bodyscapes shoot very soon. Keep an eye on the website or newsletter for details.


Bodyscapes: Mark

The good thing about the Easter holidays is that it gives me a chance to go through my hard-drives and finally edit images that I might have taken many months ago as part of a Fotofilia workshop. In this case, these images of model Mark were taken over a year ago during a “Bodyscapes” evening (a series of art nude shoots, concentrating on lighting)…

In the next post, I’ll share some images of the female model from this event. Click here to find out more about Fotofilia training events.


What’s Special?

A few months ago, I announced a Studio Evening event at Fotofilia which was a little bit different to the ones we’ve been running for the best part of a decade. For this one, I booked only one model instead of the usual two, but the model I chose was the excellent Salleh Sparrow, a model with an incredible portfolio.

I enjoyed this so much that I scheduled another – this time with a model who certainly needs no introduction, Ivory Flame.

And then another, with Stephanie Dubois

And we’re doing it again – on Tuesday 19th May 7:30-10pm. As usual, I don’t reveal who the model will be until the event. To book your place, get in touch – soon!
