The Art of Portrait Photography

The Arienas Collective is running a half-day portrait photography workshop with photographer Jannica Honey.

The Art of Portrait Photography

About The Art of Portrait Photography

On this half-day workshop with photographer Jannica Honey, you will consider the questions: What is a portrait? Or to be more specific, what is a good portrait? And do we need to see ourselves to see the other?

The workshop will be full of inspirational exercises, and Jannica will share some essentials in the art of portrait making. Together you will look into the difference between studio lights and ambient light sources, and how to create that genuine portrait - when even the soul has been lit.

Price: £45 per person including all materials and refreshments. Please bring your own camera. Jannica will email you beforehand with some additional information.

Please note that The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a first-floor space and unfortunately we do not have lift access. Please inform us of any skin or food allergies before booking.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Art of Portrait Photography are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
