Indoors For A Change: Rosa Returns

After 2 very successful location nude shoots, the ever-superb Rosa Brighid is back at Fotofilia but this time for a studio shoot. Want to come along? Get in touch.


“Sin City” Masterclass

Fancy photographing specially-styled models in the studio and then learning how to turn them into eye-popping noir-esque images in the style of the “Sin City” movies (& graphic novels)? Well, we’re bringing in the excellent Photoshop guru Joshua Mclean to show you how in this Fotofilia masterclass event.

Only a week or so to go and still a couple of spaces so book soon…


Nude In The Landscape – With Rosa Brighid THIS SUNDAY!

Once again, this weekend we’re off to our top secret location for another shoot with (in my opinion) one of the country’s best nude models – Rosa Brighid. The location is a private and secluded smallholding in rural Warwickshire with a beautiful mill race stream, 2 lakes, a barn, stables, lakeside hut, boat, and the most beautiful old trees. There are still a couple of spaces – get in touch if you’d like to come along.


Getting Flashy With Megan

Last weekend we ran a fully-booked workshop entitled “The Speedlight Studio” which focussed (sorry) on how to use battery-powered strobes/speedlights in place of the usual mains-powered Bowens kit that we usually use at Fotofilia. We began with a single light, building up to a 3-light set-up using coloured gels and even worked with combining ambient and flash for some interesting white balance contrasts.

Our brilliant model, Megan Mercy (formerly Megan Jaye), provided the perfect subject for our practical demos and here are a few of my shots from the day to give you some idea what we got up to…

We’ll doubtless be running another of these sessions in the near future so to avoid missing out, email us to be added to the monthly newsletter – or just keep checking fotofilia.co.uk.


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: 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.
