This workshop will give you the tools and confidence to use your flash effectively and creatively. It is aimed at those that have tried flash without allot of success and photographers who are using it but would like to get more creative and expand their understanding of it. We will cover on camera techniques as well as off camera.

My name is Chris Martin and I have been a professional wedding and portrait photographer for 8 years and use flash extensively both on location and in the studio, some of my work can be seen here

We have full use of the priory including its 7 acres of grounds, lake and woodland.Its a stunning venue that will be the perfect backdrop for our day together.
