Flash and Winter Weddings

£395 | 1 day

Learn how to shoot amazing winter wedding images using available light and off-camera flash. Part theory, part working with a bride and groom on location you’ll learn how to overcome the challenges that winter weddings bring.

Taught by top wedding photographers Damion Mower and Nadine van Biljon, during this specialist course they will explain how you can prepare for winter weddings, what equipment to take and why, and most importantly how to use that equipment to maximum effect.

The afternoon shoot session is held at a local wedding venue where you will practice indoor portraits using both continuous lights and off-camera flash. During the shoot Damion and Nadine will demonstrate various lighting modifiers and accessories such as grids, gels, soft boxes and umbrellas.  The teaching emphasis is on a technical understanding of lighting to achieve more creative images at your own weddings.

It does not matter whether you shoot with Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji or any other brand. We are teaching the fundamentals of off-camera lighting which can be applied to any system.  In order to keep up the pace of the shoot and not lose time changing equipment, you will use Nadine and Damion’s camera and flash system with your own memory cards (you get to keep your shots).  Of course, you are welcome to bring your own gear too and if required we will help you find any of the settings that match our set-up on the day.


Thank you so much to Mike who was absolutely amazing on the Weddings/Flash course. I learnt heaps and really enjoyed myself. Amazing lunch too! This was my second course here and I really wouldn’t go anywhere else now. Beautiful grounds, lovely open studio, fantastic tutors and always a good number of students. Thank you all again!"
