I’ve recently led a couple of workshops teaching photographers how to make better use of their Speedlite flash.

I always find it hard to shoot pictures myself at my workshops, I think it is better for the people on the course to take the pictures and for me to help them with camera settings, flash settings and even holding and positioning lights. However this recent workshop for EOS Magazine I did manage to capture a handful of pictures during the day. Huge thanks to Jemma Jenkinson for modelling for this workshop.

More Speedlite flash workshops with EOS Magazine

The great news is that I have a number of Speedlite workshops booked in with EOS Magazine. There are two levels of workshop, one aimed at photographers just getting started with flash photography and the other at a more advanced multiple flash off-camera level.

Book places with EOS Magazine, you don’t have to be a subscriber to go on these courses.
