Residential Photography Course

Stay at Studio Faire, in a stunning region in S.W. France, and learn Photography with Colin Usher.

Residential Photography Course – September

Come and stay at Studio Faire for 7 days and learn Photography with Colin Usher and a small group of like minded budding photographers in this stunning region of South West France.

Dates: Thursday 13 September – Thursday 20 September 2018.

During this week long course you will be welcomed into our Maison de maître and given your own private double bedroom (you are also welcome to come with a partner and share the room if you like). Thursday evening will offer time for settling in and getting to know each other over a glass of our local wine.

Friday will be spent getting to know your camera by going MANUAL to shoot smarter! Colin will show you how to be more creative with your camera’s functions, both in the ‘Usher Hall’ (our designated photography studio) and the gardens of Studio Faire. You will learn how to utilise both natural and studio flash light, and be given some of Colin’s secrets for creating stunning compositions.

Saturday will provide the opportunity to focus on Portrait Photography. Colin will show you how to capture portraits that are full of life, that reveal the character of your sitter, that are animated and playful, or calm and professional.

Sunday is a day of rest… but it’s also a Patrimoine (European Heritage day) so you can spend the day visiting historic Châteaux and digesting what you have learned so far.

On Monday, you will be taken out and about in Nérac and the beautiful surrounding area so that Colin can show you how best to capture the beauty of these awe inspiring landscapes.

The key to completing truly outstanding photographs is post production, so Tuesday morning will focus on developing your favourite shots using Adobe Lightroom to ensure they are print-ready.

Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning will give you time to hone your skills independantly and draw together all of the elements learned across the week with a coming together on Wednesday afternoon for constructive feedback on your progress from Colin and the restof the group.
