Event Details

  • Course Description


    In the well-equipped photography studio at The Institute, you can improve your skills and techniques at various levels from beginners to masterclass.  You can also discover how to improve your images, once taken, using digital darkroom applications.

    In this special one day workshop exclusively for the Mumsnet Academy, one of The Institute’s most experienced tutors, Rena Pearl, a professional photographer, will show you how to take better pictures of your little ones.  Babyhood and childhood go by so fast – wouldn’t it be great to have better quality professional-looking pictures to capture the magic of the moment?


  • What's Included 

    This introductory course covers both location and studio style portraits, the use of reflectors, lighting modifiers and setting up a mini studio, catching natural and relaxed shots and using a hand held meter for both ambient light and flash light.  To get the most out of this course, you should have a bridge camera, a micro 4:3 or a DSLR. It is not suitable for mobile phones, iPhones or iPads.


  • Tutor Details 

    Rena Pearl has 28 years’ experience in many areas of photography during which she has won a number of awards. A selection of her work is in the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery. She specializes in portrait, PR, corporate and reportage photography throughout the UK.

Mumsnet Academy


So what is this Academy thing?
We're very excited to be launching The Mumsnet Academy - a brand new enterprise which aims to curate a portfolio of fantastic courses to fit around family commitments and busy working lives.
A while back we asked you what courses you would like and the programme of masterclasses, workshops, and events we've come up with is a reflection of your  responses.
To help us deliver the programme we have enlisted some fabulous experts in a range of fields as well as teaming up with some great partners who have a reputation for delivering high-quality, life-changing courses.
This collaborative approach allows us to offer a programme across a range of different subjects including entrepreneurship, business, technology, social media, blogging, history of art, creative writing, publishing, gardening, philosophy, finance, fashion as well as courses concerned with self-improvement and the concept of learning to live wisely and well. Some of these courses will be skill-based, while others will explore concepts, theory and ideas. 
If we've missed something you think is a must, fear not, we will be adding classes to our portfolio all the time so please drop us a line or complete the suggestion box on our website.
One of the things that we felt was important was to ensure our Academy courses are available across the UK and we are pleased to announce that we will be running events in Birmingham, Edinburgh, London and Manchester from day one. We are also keen to develop some online courses and hope to announce the first of these later this year.
While our courses are scheduled at times which are more convenient for those with young children, they are absolutely open to everyone. Ultimately, the overall aim of the Mumsnet Academy is to bring people together in a thought-provoking and fulfilling environment where there is a universal willingness to explore ideas, develop skills, and learn from experts as well from each other.
