Food photography depends very much on good light, and yet the textures, shapes and form can respond extremely well to quite a simple lighting setup.
We have created a clear and structured range of training days, covering lighting and photography for photographers of all abilities. Simply choose your subject and choose the course suited to your ability.

It’s funny, inspiration can come from the strangest places. This is a gate at the back of the Great Hall at Mains. The Hall itself has a huge potential for photography opportunities, both inside and out. But moving just that little further afield means we can get something unique.
