What this workshop is all about?

As a photographer, we want to capture an image that evokes an emotion in us. Being able to convey that emotion can be challenging. This workshop will teach you how to transform your visions into beautiful pieces of art by learning how to interact with your subject, observing your frame, trying new compositions, and using available light.

Workshop Feedback


I took this workshop to learn about editing styles and moody black and whites, but I learned so much more about many different subjects – Andy


I cannot believe how interactive April and Helen are, checking in multiple times a day, and it blew me a way that I got so many video responses – Natalie


It just felt so personal and feedback was so clear and supportive – Natalie


I have purchased a lot of online courses, but nothing compared with the one on one contact you get from this workshop, you have helped me believe in myself and my work – Victoria


Helen and April are talented photographers but they are also caring, and inspiring and give amazing feedback – Linda


Helen and April have done an amazing job as teachers and mentors, always encouraging and inspiring me to dig deeper – Linda


Helen and April are both brilliant artists but also very supportive and read to give all that they know and love – Marianne


This workshop is intimate and showed me how well digital learning can work. I have loved having two teachers, the combination of both was perfect – Marianne


I love the conversations we had about different approaches to portraits and thank you for picking up every topic that was brought up by us – Marianne


I signed up for this workshop in a hope that I would understand something that was missing for me, and OH BOY, I could not have asked for more - Lenna


The most useful thing I learnt from this workshop was that I am now producing images that are “my art”, that comes from inside me, not just my camera – Vicki


The support has been amazing, definitely a highlight of this workshop – Vicki


No matter where we are in the world there was feedback and support almost instantly – Vicki


You’ve helped me how to really highlight the strengths of an image and improve the weaknesses – Michelle


So much support – thank you. I’m trying not to think about what ‘withdrawal’ will feel like – Michelle


I truly enjoyed this workshop – Aska


I love the amount of time you put into it and give everyone video feedback – it is immensely helpful. – Aska


 There is nothing about this workshop I would change. I am still blown away by how present and engaged both of you have been from the beginning. You create an atmosphere that is free and creative and productive and inspiring. It’s self-paced but still guided and the emphasis on not only the creative shooting side but the editing advice and portfolio building were aspects I was not expecting and so happy to have. I didn’t focus as much on child portraits as I had planned, but I was still able to take every bit of advice meant for either myself or others and apply it to the work I am creating now, and I know when I do start doing more portraits, I will have all these lessons to pull from. The only thing that I am really left with is just wanting more time ♥️ - Emmy
