Any shoot requires planning - a shoot away from the studio can require a degree in logistics. Shooting abroad calls for a PHD, as well as the ability to turn on instant charm and a healthy dose of serene composure. Using a real-life scenario from a personal project consisting of 5 days shooting in Rome, Jakob will talk through some of the common pitfalls easily avoided (and some less-easily avoided) when planning for your overseas photographic adventures.

Jakob owns and runs Danish Apple Photography with his wife Dasha, focusing predominantly on weddings, fitness and editorial work. Over the past six years, as well as operating in the UK, he has shot weddings, corporate and fashion work across Europe. As a Interfit Photographic Creative Pro, Jakob has been a speaker at multiple photographic shows including the SWPP Annual Convention, the Birmingham NEC Photography Show for the last two years, as well as talks at the WEX Light Show and the CameraWorld Live Show.

These webinars are designed to be interactive and you'll be able to ask Jakob your questions on his photography.

Sessions last for an hour. Don't forget to tell your friends.

James is a photographer who photographs babies on weekdays out of his loft conversion in a terraced house in Portsmouth and professional wrestlers in backstage changing rooms at weekends. 

While he'd dearly love for a big studio, space to move and all the time in the world, he often finds himself shooting in rooms smaller than a broom cupboard and one occasion, photographed promo pictures in a disused shower unit. 

But it's making the most of the light you have that counts, and in this talk, James explains how he has built up a successful newborn business and creative portrait business, armed normally with just one light. 

These webinars are designed to be interactive and you'll be able to ask James your questions on his photography.

Sessions last for an hour. Don't forget to tell your friends.
