Post of 3, Category: Workshops

Due to the success of past workshops and interest I’ve decided to host two portfolio building fashion photography events in London & NYC during August 2013! The two day events are for amateur and professional photographers alike and feature lighting demonstrations, professional models and styling teams. The main focus? Building the  portfolio whilst learning new techniques.

I am even more excited to share the locations with you – I’ve handpicked a number of sought-after location houses in London and NYC which attract the use of international advertising and editorial clients! Two of which I have used in my own commercial and editorial shoots. You can find the images to each of these gorgeous locations on the right & below.

To find out more details and pricing info visit my website at or email me at for further information.

    It is really interesting to see how your style has evolved through years. I remember, I was only 16 when I discovered your art on Deviantart and I never stopped watching your new photos since then. I’m a real fan Lara, keep up your awesome work !



So my April started with a plunge into three days of photography workshops in London! I have to say, my highlight of the start of this year has been teaching workshops – I feel incredibly lucky to be able to pass on my knowledge, share experiences and help others when it comes to photography and my workshops are a way of me doing this and in return putting back into my own business.

The workshops pull people in from every corner of the globe – Dubai, India, Ireland, Germany, Italy, India, Canada.. it’s amazing how many people make the effort to travel to London for this and I have to say I enjoyed meeting you all! Thank you to my amazing creative team who I know worked incredibly hard on each day of the workshop even with the early AM start.

I wanted to share with you some behind the scenes from the three days so you can get a glimpse into what the workshops host and how everything works on the day.. hope you enjoy them! xo

My workshops are being taken to NYC, London location workshops & Australia this year – to see more details and dates visit my website at

London Workshop Dec 2010

As many of you may have noticed – I’ve been starting to do fashion photography workshops aimed at beginner – intermediate photographers. I can honestly say I realise I thoroughly enjoy teaching other people and passing on my knowledge. Photography can be very intense and personal so giving back and putting myself in a position where I can pass on advice and share my experience is very beneficial to me – and I learn a thing or two, too!

My first courses were held in London at MindStudio in December – there were originally two dates and I immediately fully booked them all so I added another date, totalling it to three. The workshops are a full day intensive course based on fashion photography ‘from start to finish‘ and show the photographer how to plan the initial shoot, arrange and book a creative team, several lighting set ups in the studio, how to guide your model and a chance to each photographer to photograph ‘their’ images as well as a general advice and feedback session at the end of the day. The day is treated as I would treat a photo shoot myself – there is a creative team on hand, an experienced model, stylist, hair and make up artist – they are all their to guide and share their experiences also!

I have met some wonderful people on these courses and I’ve had some great feedback from the attendees on the day. The results I’ve seen from the photographers on the day have been amazing so far!

I will be adding more dates on over the next few weeks for NYC and hopefully Toronto, so please keep checking back.

  7. Kel

    These workshops seem like such a great idea, especially going through the ins and outs of organizing a shoot, not just the actual shooting.. because that can be the most difficult part of the whole process.

  8. Steven Paul
