Kate and Sandy are both classically trained dancers and have worked together for many years in professional dance troops.  They will be performing both ballet and modern/contemporary dance sets to enable you to develop skills in taking images of the moving form.

Jon Gray will be demonstrating several different lighting set ups and with his assistance you will be shooting on a one to one with the models.

Workshop technical content:

  • Use of Apertures and shutter speeds to create movement.
