Frequently Asked Questions

Do you provide any post-workshop support?

To act as an aide-memoire, we provide the relevant course notes for each of our skills workshops. We frequently find that fellow photographers on our workshops keep in touch with each other; in fact, many long-lasting friendships and photography support groups are formed this way. If you are not already in our Appleton Photo Training Facebook Group, attending a workshop qualifies you to join. In the Group, you have our listening ear and we will answer any questions you have. You’ll find it’s an invaluable resource, a generous and supportive community of photographers who are always willing to share and help each other. You are never alone with a problem!

What experience do I need?

For Part I, you should be familiar with your camera controls but it doesn’t matter if you haven’t worked in a studio environment before. The 3-part structure of the course means that each workshop builds on the last one. We advise photographers to complete Part I; before going on to Parts II and III. This ensures noble feels out of their depth. However, if you fare considering skipping a workshop, please feel free to check that you have the skills you need to make the most of the course.

Who are the models?

Years of experience have taught us how to select models who are going to enhance your learning experience. Whilst we cannot always name models at the time you book a workshop, you can rest assured that they will be dedicated, professional and easy to communicate with. Many of the models we employ have worked with us many times; they are part of the team. We take great care when choosing new faces.

Are refreshments provided?

Tea/Coffee and biscuits will be waiting for you when you arrive and you will have an afternoon tea break during the afternoon. Water and juices will be available.The 12 noon start on this range of workshops is designed to allow photographers to eat lunch before they arrive. The afternoon is an intensive 5 hours of learning and shooting.

What equipment should I bring?

Generally speaking, all you need to bring is your camera and the kit lens but check the ‘What to Bring’ information for any further details. We supply all the studio lighting and equipment you will need.

Can I use the images I take on the workshop?

Yes, you are welcome to use any images you take on the day in your portfolio. However, you are not permitted to sell these images. Please refer to our Terms and Conditions on this website for full details of usage.
