From classical to contemporary, from edgy to elegant, join us for a natural light portraiture workshop in the City and learn how to find and use beautiful light in an urban environment for portrait photography.

You’ll learn about shooting on location: finding light, managing subject to background visualising, composing your portraits and posing your models within the built environment.

Whether you’re a beginner or a more experienced photographer, you’ll pick up great tips and techniques about portrait lighting.

Best of all, this is a hands-on event, with two models available for you to work with; so bring your camera and lenses and capture some great urban environmental portraits.

What’s in this for you?

  • Learn about finding great natural light in an urban setting.
  • Find out about using this light on faces, hands and bodies.
  • Work with a model, and add great portraits into your portfolio.
  • Find out how to pose your portrait models for the light.
  • Pick up great lighting and photography tips!


You’ll be led by professional photographer and portrait lighting teacher, Seng Mah, through the session and come away with great captures! It’s going to be a workshop that’s full of fun and, if you’re not a portrait photographer yet, it’ll make you fall in love with portraiture!

Don’t miss out as this event is limited to 8 participants (so that everyone can have hand-on time shooting with our models)!

  • Your interchangeable lens camera (DSLR or mirrorless).
  • Memory card/s and batteries (always bring a fully charged spare).
  • Lenses with focal lengths in the 50 to 200mm rang eg. 24-70mm, 18-55mm, 70-200mm, 24-105mm; prime lenses in the 50mm, 85mm, 90mm and 100mm are also suitable. Lenses with wide apertures (f/2.8, f/1.8) will be advantageous.
  • Some props if you’d like our models to pose with your prop ideas. We recommend props that will work well in both a heritage and modern city setting./li>
