Seeing and Thinking Portraiture

26 October 2019

Workshop with Guest Artists Paul Hill MBE and Maria Falconer FRPS

The workshop will focus on how we can engage with sitters in natural situations using a range of simple techniques to create photographs that communicate more than a likeness.

This workshop is suitable for new and experienced photographers alike.

Paul and Maria are both experienced professional photographers and teachers. They have completed projects for numerous high-profile clients and their work has been featured in national newspapers, such as The Guardian.

Paul and Maria have both been on the selection panel for the RBSA biennial Photographic Prize exhibition and are kindly offering this workshop at a lower price to help make it as accessible as possible to photography lovers. Workshops by Paul and Maria would normally start at £95 per day, making this an excellent opportunity to receive high-quality tuition at a budget-friendly price.
