Introduction to Portrait Photography


''Many thanks for a thoroughly enjoyable time, where we learned a lot of fascinating tips on our approach to taking good portrait photographs. The comprehensive handout will be a very useful reference. I did enjoy the practical session, playing with the light.

I shall be signing up for the course in the summer.  Thank you, Eva, for your hard work in making this workshop work so well.'' Lola Bunbury-Davies
