Event description

Description

Castle Cameras are pleased to announce a wonderful 1940’s era portraiture workshop. Held in conjunction with Sony at a genuine period Railway Station set in the picturesque North Dorset countryside. Capture stunning images and learn essential skills and techniques in lighting and working with models.

We are thrilled to be taking a trip back in time with Sony to the picturesque Shillingstone Railway Station to capture some wonderful, atmospheric vintage style portraits. Our event aims to inspire you to capture some beautiful images that celebrate the period fashion and heritage of this time.

We are very lucky to have the incredible Hannah Couzens, Sony Ambassador leading the event. Hannah is an award winning professional portrait photographer, who shoots all kind of subjects from actors, models, authors, musicians, TV presenters and celebrities to corporate headshots and families. Hannah runs a successful high street photography business which she started 13 years ago aged just 22 and has twice won the FSB Young Business Person award. Hannah is an educator for the Profoto academy and is involved in many speaking engagements, sharing her passion for light shaping and portraiture.

Representatives from Sony will be on hand throughout the day to provide you with kit, such as the A7III, A7RIII, G-Master lenses and answer any technical questions you might have.

With this equipment and Hannah’s tuition and guidance we hope you end the day not with just some incredible images, but also having learnt some new skills in lighting, handling equipment, shooting techniques and of course, having had a fun day!
