Photography Course: Learn Artistic Portraiture

Learn how to capture artistic portraiture photographs

4 x 2 hours Class size 6 to 12     label $100 - $120 ($100 for Pension or HCC holder, $120 for Adult)

Go from taking the same-old standard photographs to capturing beautiful, artistic images with Livonne Larkins at this intensive portraiture photography course in Katoomba.

Why take an uninteresting photo when you can turn your subject into a work of art? Work through a photoshoot from start to finish, from concept to planning, costuming, posing, shooting and editing.

You will begin the course by brainstorming a concept based on botanicals that can be found for free, like ivy, flowers, branches and more. You will then plan what is needed from makeup, hair, costume and botanicals available.

From there you will work with models to learn the perfect poses to get the best images. You will have a timed opportunity for working with a model to obtain the desired photo.

After completing your photoshoot, you will work through the editing process to complete the image.

A self-proclaimed late bloomer and fairy-tale fanatic, I am a visual artist and storyteller, both in pictures and words. Heavily influenced by the colours, textures and romance of the Renaissance artists, I strive to bring the same ethereal beauty to my imagery.

Just as every good fairy-tale has light and shade or evil and goodness, it is essential that even the darkest subjects should have a glimmer of hope to inspire and empower. "Once upon a time" and "Happily ever after" are words that influence every piece of art I create.
