Advanced Studio Lighting Class


We’ve had lots of interest in a follow-on to our Fundamentals of studio portrait lighting course, so in this class we will explore a number of different studio lighting setups (we might even use more than one light!). This is an afternoon class, limited to our standard class size of 4 – 6 participants.

Our introductory studio course is not an obligatory pre-requisite, but we won’t repeat the introductory material so this class does require that you are familiar with using your camera and have some experience in studio portraiture.


  • Saturday 15th December – 2pm – 5pm, Model: Klara Chomicz

  • 4-6 participants.
  • Price £130 (including VAT)

What’s been said about our studio class:

I thoroughly enjoyed the studio lighting course. I found it to be a perfect mix of theory and hands-on practical work, all done in an informal and relaxed way. It has provided me with a good understanding of different lighting techniques as well as the confidence to use them. Also getting some really nice shots while learning how to do them is always nice!

I attended the fundamentals of studio portrait lighting course run by Barrie Spence and his wife Fiona and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed every minute.

Barrie teaches you every thing you need to know about studio lighting in an easy and relaxed manner which makes learning fun. The models are great to work with as they strike pose after pose, or you can direct them as to the pose or look that you want. Either way you will come back with some amazing images.

Highly recommended.

Barrie Spence’s studio lighting course held at Pavilion Photographic studio was one of the best courses I have ever attended, Barrie’s knowledge and enthusiasm of his subject made the course most enjoyable.
