Master your flash and start getting paid

(without breaking the bank)



It goes without saying that knowing how to properly use on and off camera flashes enables you to work everywhere with confidence and increases the chances of you getting hired by a potential client. That being said many photographers find flashguns confusing due to their wide range of functions and settings as well as the vast choice and high cost of flash accessories available on the market. After completing this workshop, you will have a very good understanding of a variety of accessories, including shapers, modifiers, triggers and light-stands including some tips on how to save money on your equipment. In addition, not only will you be able to take full control of your flash but also achieve the results that will help you get paid for your next commission.


It is not necessary to bring your own equipment to attend this workshop, however should you wish to get bespoke advice you will only need to carry a digital SLR Camera and a dedicated flash unit.
