Group Shoots, Model Days, Workshops & Creative Nights.
The Loud and Flashy Creative Nights are a monthly get together for models, photographers, makeup artists, designers and anyone else with a creative flair!
Whether you're an aspiring model or photographer, or a seasoned pro, these nights are a great way to network in safety while building your portfolio. The evenings are very relaxed allowing people to shoot what they want, where they want, anywhere in the studio (and outside in the yard, weather permitting!).
It doesn't matter whether you've been been in a studio before or not, everyone helps everyone else with ideas, posing, camera settings etc. We set up various shooting areas around the studio so people can move around during the evening shooting many different ideas.

The emphasis is on teaching you techniques you can use with your existing gear at home or in any location.
Simon will first run through the theory of lighting before everyone then gets a chance to shoot all the setups while incorporating their own ideas.
