With practical sessions and personalised feedback, you’ll gain the confidence and skills to transform everyday scenes into dramatic and unforgettable silhouettes. Join us and elevate your photography to new heights, capturing the magic of shadows and light like never before.

By the end of this workshop, you’ll have a thorough understanding of the techniques and creative processes involved in silhouette portrait photography, along with a portfolio of work to showcase your newfound skills.
