Event description


This event is specifically intended to beginners in photography willing to learn how to shoot portraits and use their camera (DSLR or Mirrorless) in the most efficient way possible.

During this workshop we will explore, with an experienced model, how to create awesome portraiture images while shooting natural light. We'll use some reflectors and we’ll also have an introduction to off-camera flash use under natural daylight.

The session will be held on location, in the beautiful village of Culross, to show that inspiration for creating beautifully lit portraits can be taken from anywhere.

Culross is a village and former royal burgh, and parish, in Fife, Scotland. Originally, Culross served as a port city on the Firth of Forth and is believed to have been founded by Saint Serf during the 6th century.

Several motion pictures have used Culross as a filming location, including Kidnapped (1971), The Little Vampire (2000), A Dying Breed (2007), The 39 Steps (2008), and Captain America: The First Avenger (2011). In September 2013, the Starz television series, Outlander, started filming in Culross for its premiere in August 2014.

You will not of course become a professional photographer at the end of the day but let me tell you that at this workshop, several things can be guaranteed; a friendly atmosphere, lots of fun, practical exchange of photography advices and a great variety of opportunities to create lovely images…

Each workshop is voluntary limited to a maximum of 5 participants to ensure the best communication possible with everyone.

Everything you need to enjoy your passion for photography on a stress-free Saturday.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Yes, you must be minimum 18 to attend this workshop.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Meeting point will be at the car parking lot at the entrance of the village, all participants can meet at the same easy point. From there, we'll walk together through the Village.

What can I bring into the event?

Your camera first ;-) which ideally should be a Mirrorless or DSLR. Don't forget your batteries and memory cards! If you have a flash, bring it on too. Dressing code is of course "Casual' and the one thing very important is to wear easy and good walking shoes as we are going to walk a bit around the village. A raincoat might be wise to also have with you considering our ever changing Scottish weather. A good idea should be to also bring with you some snacks and drinks but if you forget those, we’ll still be very close to shops.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

The most easy way should be by using the "Contact the Organiser" function from this website but you may also want to use my contact form directly on my website at https://jeremylavender.myportfolio.com/contact

What's the refund policy?

Basically there is no refund at all so you must be sure to assist the workshop when buying your ticket.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

It should be great but not an obligation as long as you have an ID with you.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

It is not supposed to be at first but to compensate the fact that there is no refund available and considering unfortunate things may happen, I will allow a transferrable ticket in the case of a major situation. The major situation to be defined and/or accepted at the sole discretion of the organiser but for example, a broken leg or arm will of course do it. In this case, and only after approval of the organiser, you must let me know of all details about the person holding the transferred ticket and assisting the event.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

In exceptional situation as described above, yes it can be OK. But, once again, transferring a ticket to someone else has to be accepted first by the organiser and also few days before the day of the event itself.


This workshop is also available on-demand. For another booking date, please contact me at https://jeremylavender.myportfolio.com/contact
