Photography course snapshot

We are overjoyed to have secured this amazing location of Villa di Corliano just 10 mins from the bustling town of Pisa . This is a 2 day shooting course with Brett. Mixing elegant lit images with beautiful styling, hair & make up!

It is a 3 day course with 2 days of shooting & one day of r&r. We don’t want to put you to work as soon as you get off the plane so the first day ( afternoon by the time you arrive ) will be spent having wine/coffee and relaxing , we will get together for arrival drinks and then for dinner.
Giving you a few hours to get to to know the villa. You could also make the short trip into Pisa if you wanted as its only 20 mins away.
 
Over the two days we will be shooting in and around this amazing Villa utilising the decor, natural light and stunning position. We will also be shooting our models on location around the Villa, in the gardens and areas beyond.
Using two models we will be shooting amazingly elegant & lit images over the two days of shooting.
There will be plenty of time to chat to Brett about your business. Discuss your imagery over a glass of wine and relax with like minded people on this two day, three night course.
Do I need to know a lot about flash to do this course?
Some flash knowledge is handy but not 100% necessary – we will be using larger modifiers and large flash packs ( Elinchrom ) don’t be scared buy this , they are just big speedlights! The skills taught on this course will give you the confidence to take your flash into any situation. Although shooting fashion based imagery here I use the same skill set in all of what I shoot from weddings to kids & commercial jobs. All in the amazing surroundings of  this beautiful Italian Villa. 
Equipment needed
  • Camera
  • Your favourite portrait lens and maybe one a little wider also
  • Indoor & Outdoor clothes, overnight clothes etc…
  • Empty cards & maybe a laptop – we may do a little photoshop one night!
  • Enthusiasm and a team ethic!
  • Lots of questions!
What kind of equipment will we be using?

We have some great suppliers onboard for this one! I will have some beautiful glass ND filters From LEE FILTERS on hand for us to use so that we all achieve the ‘dreamy’ ‘film’ look that I am looking for. We will also have another Pentax 645 z for anyone to have a go with – I am European Ambassador for this camera and it is simply amazing! We will have some great Manfrotto stands for us to use also. We will also be using Elinchrom Lighting – from The Flash Centre –  those of you that know me know that I use Elinchrom & nothing else! We will have Ranger Packs & maybe even a new ELB 1200 for us to play with! I will also have my various modifiers there so that we can shape the light around our models. We will also be using a fog machine where we can to ad a little atmosphere to the images.

    Just thought I would drop by and say how helpful I found your instructional DVD. I have my first wedding to do in a few weeks and your DVD has given me a great insight into how I should expect the day to go. I found it full of useful advice and I am sure I will watch it over and over again between now and the big day. So thank you for giving me a spoonful of your knowledge! Thanks again, Pete
  • JONATHAN FENTON - Brett & Kristy- watched your inspiring real wedding DVD last night and just wanted to say how beyond impressed I was- truly amazing and beautiful pictures! A great insight in to how you approach a wedding. Fantastic resource to keep referring back to! Any thoughts on a course on post production?? Must come back & do another course soo...n!”

  • MATTHEW STAINER - "Just a quick note to say thank you for a fun, relaxed, informative, inspiring and a well fed day of top notch training. You have a great set up and love your studio and I would love to think that in a few years I might be somewhere up to where you are right now”
  • ANDY FOUNTAIN - Hi Brett and Kristie , Thank you so much for the fantastic day you arranged for Rachael and myself on Monday.  It was one of the best training experiences I have had as a pro photographer and we came away feeling confident in knowing how to drive the business on.  On the way home Rachael said we would be booking a course with you guys on a yearly basis and for her to say this is a big turn around. I think she really saw the benefit in having days like this. Thank you so much again for a life changing tremendous day.”
  • Steve Mannell
    Hi Brett, your DVD is superb and worth every penny. I watched the whole thing including the extras and it's inspirational. I think I might have to watch it again to try and take in all the key points and tips! Keep up the good work. and I will see you on one of your London based courses in the near future.
