Luxury brands wouldn’t dream of representing their products in badly lit, murky-looking mobile phone images and neither should you!

Take more control of your career progression by keeping your gallery regularly updated with impressive close-up images that are worthy of your work. Never take a bad image again (with practice of course!)


  • The principles behind a good beauty portrait – analysis of your existing work. The difference between a good and bad portrait;
  • Portrait photography rules – composition guidelines, lighting scenarios and correct posing of the subject;
  • Camera basics – using a DSLR camera’s manual controls confidently to adjust it perfectly for different light scenarios; and
  • Practical – practical exercises based on the theory taught during the masterclass. Includes a review of your portraits with constructive critique and a Q&A.

You’ll then be ready to keep practising not only to improve your gallery but the quality of your social media posts too. There’ll be no excuses!
