A rare chance to learn from Immo Klink - a professional Photographer with a very impressive client list including Dazed&Confused and I-D magazine.

In this 2 hour class, those with a very basic knowledge of photography will be given all the information they need to take great portrait photographs, be more confident when taking photos, and learn some technical tricks. You’ll find out how the Pros take portrait photos - how to get your subject to do what you want them to do, how to build trust, and make them feel confident and relaxed. Immo explains “In my practice as a photographer I’ve learned that apart from the technical stuff, portraiture is a ‘people skill’. The best equipment won't help you if you can't make the person in front of the camera comfortable. I will tell you some tricks to achieve that.”

You will learn some technical basics about light, backgrounds and lenses. You’ll try some practical exercises so bring your camera with you - both pocket and SLR cameras are fine for this class. There will also be a surgery session, where you can ask Immo about particular problems you may have been struggling with.
