What We’ll be Covering in this
During this course you will learn how to take images like these:
A digital (or film) camera with the ability to change aperture and shutter speed, a camera has M mode for manual.
Tripods are not essential but you can bring one along if you prefer.
If you have several lenses, you can bring those along too.
A note pad and pen – though lighting diagrams will be emailed later.
Lunch of sandwiches with tea and coffee will be provided. Any special dietary requirements will be catered for but must be notified in advance.
An understanding of aperture, shutter speed and ISO would be beneficial.

I’ve been lucky enough to attend a couple of the portrait groups Nick runs, and each time they’ve been hugely valuable. Nick is fantastic at really helping you to understand the ‘why’ of a scenario, not just the ‘how’. I found this really important as it’s helped me use the skills in my own photography, and take time to explore different lighting set ups. His groups are fun, super friendly, and most of all collaborative. It doesn’t matter if you are a complete beginner starting out, or someone who’s has a lot of studio experience….. the groups are run in a way that everyone chats, shares and is treated equally.
I’ve also done a one-to-one session with Nick, where we explored specific styles lighting that I wanted to achieve. We spent time going through various set ups, him quizzing me to ensure that I understood what I was doing, and not just ‘copying’ as such. Understanding is key, and Nick is very good at speaking in layman’s terms and not blinding you with technical jargon! I know if I have any questions, I can approach Nick as he’s always very happy to help out other photographers.
I highly recommend Nick Gregan’s courses and workshops. Both talented and generous with his vast knowledge, Nick’s ease at explaining the seemingly complicated, as well as his unparalleled mastery of working with light, has inspired me to sharpen my skills and unleash my creativity.
Nick Gregan is a great trainer as he speaks plain English. His photography workshops are a masterclass in technical knowhow, presented in a clear, relatable way. Each time is different but there’s always a light bulb moment, as he helps you nail a shot you never thought you’d manage!
If you’re looking to improve your photography skills, and get a chance to work with Nick Gregan – take it!
I have been on a number of training courses run by Nick Gregan. He brilliantly demystifies studio shoots – working with a model, positioning of your lighting, camera settings… the list is endless. When you train with Nick Gregan you get the tools but also the inspiration to develop as a photographer.
I’m sure we all like our lighting, but there’s always more to learn, especially from someone who really knows how to light different subjects and moods, and not always in ideal locations. You’ll really benefit from being able to expand your repertoire. Nick is not only knowledgeable but down to earth and approachable.
