Description

Saraya Cortaville - Child Portraiture Workshop

A practical workshop highlighting the way I will approach and execute a lifestyle portrait shoot, from gaining the client to the end point of product delivery. This workshop is ideal if you want the skills to take beautiful and natural images of children.

You will need to bring along your camera, lenses, and a creative mind!

In the practical session we will have a beautiful child model, where you can practice and develop your newly learnt skills.

This workshop will be an introduction into children’s portraiture, with the main emphasis on how to capture stunning images of children on location. Using, styling, light, composition and expression to push your portraiture to a different level.

Key Learning Points:

  • An introduction to Saraya, her career and images.
  • An in depth look at some of my most recent projects, and a detailed description of how I approach my location portraits.
  • Particular attention paid to, location spotting, looking for the light, correct lenses and camera settings to use, in a variety of different scenarios
  • Hands on, on local shoot to practice new skills and explore the various techniques that I use to create my portraiture.


About Saraya

Saraya Cortaville is an award-winning portrait and social documentary photographer. She has received two fellowships (one of only two women in the U.K to have achieved this)

The first for studio portraiture and most recently social documentary for a project she completed in 2015 whilst living in Africa. She was awarded the Peter Grugeon award for the best fellowship portfolio of 2015, and a gold award in Visual Arts in the professional photography awards 2016.

Saraya’s passion for travel and people has pushed her career in to a more adventurous phase and she has recently lived and worked abroad for various international NGO’s documenting social issues in countries as far as Tanzania, Nepal, Nicargua and Costa Rica. She skillfully manages to draw out her subjects’ emotions and feelings, in a sensitive and empathetic nature, her portraits are an observation and moment of connection, between two people, rather than photographer, subject.

When not abroad Saraya shoots primarily location portraiture specializing in children and documentary weddings.

Saraya is a Fujifilm Ambassador and actively mentors and judges for national and international photographic bodies.
