Build your own shoot

About this experience

This course assumes you know your way around your camera, studio lighting and post processing. We don’t expect you to be an expert but to get the most out of this you will need to be familiar with the concepts.

Build your own day in the studio. You pick the subject matter, styling and lighting and Tim will make it happen. Tell him what you want, and he will guide you through a full day of shooting. For a day he can accomplish the following-

  • Four to five lighting setups.

  • An hour of post processing.

  • Instruction on shooting tethered to Capture One.

  • Instruction on shooting with the camera and lenses of your choice.

  • Camera and lighting assistant.

  • Maximum of two people per shoot, this gives you the most hands-on time.


  • Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.

  • Editing suggestions via email for two weeks after the shoot.

  • One A2 print on Ilford fine art paper of a selected hero shot.

    Build your own portfolio with Tim Bauer and his team.
