On this workshop you will expand your creative abilities, photographing portraits on the streets of Bristol. You’ll be shown how to find and use beautiful natural light. You will also be working with lightweight flash units to create the punchy pictures that Damien has become renowned for. All flash and lighting equipment will be provided so you just need to bring your camera, a couple of lenses and get inspired. Damien will be using one zoom lens and one prime lens. The zoom is the equivalent of a 17-35mm and the prime lens is the equivalent of a 56mm. If you have a monopod and are comfortable using it then feel free to bring one, however we do not recommend bringing a tripod.

Morning and afternoon refreshments are included as well as a harbourside lunch so you can relax and reflect on the pictures you’ve taken to that point.


You will come away feeling immensely inspired and motivated to get out and practise what you’ve learnt. Damien’s passion and enthusiasm for photography is infectious, confidence boosting and we’ll guarantee you’ll capture images you can be proud of.

Damien will impart his expert knowledge and experience as he guides you through the creative process. Whilst learning how best to interact with your subject, you’ll master how to use light for dramatic effect.

You’ll pick up invaluable tips on exposure control and composition as well as how to orchestrate a photo shoot to get the best out of your subject.

The workshop is limited to just 5 participants so that everyone has plenty of time and personal guidance from Damien. You’ll be shooting around the waterfront areas of Bristol including the old railway sideings and dockyards. Expect a full training day with high-energy ‘let’s make it happen’ attitude as well as Damien’s usual bucketful of enthusiasm. We guarantee you’ll come away from this event with your mind buzzing and recharged with motivation.


Considered by many to be one of the worlds most influential contemporary photographers, he is best known for creating portraits that make women look fabulous.

Joining the BBC at the age of 19, Damien worked as a cameraman and trained as a Lighting Director before leaving in 1998 to become a full time photographer.

Now a Fujifilm X Photographer and Fujifilm UK Ambassador, he has travelled the world as a commercial photographer, a wedding and portrait photographer and now a teacher, motivator, writer and columnist.

As some costs for each training event remain the same regardless of how many attendees there are, like any pre-booked tickets for the theatre, concert, flights etc, we are unable to give a full refund in the event of non-attendance, regardless of the circumstance.

The exception to this is if we have prior notice and are able to put a cancellation place back online AND your place is resold. In this event we will of course make a full refund or credit to you. We also reserve the right to cancel any workshop if there is insufficient demand, especially if it means that our costs would be higher than our income. Please therefore do not leave it until the last few weeks if you are interested in a particular date, as you may find that it has been removed! Please note that we cannot be liable for any other costs incurred by yourself, so please check with us before booking any non-refundable accommodation or transport.
