Location: Northumberland

About The Day​

10am - approx 4.30pm

We will start with a chat over a cuppa to decide which styles of card you would most like to shoot with each of our festive subjects: funny and cute, or sleek and stylish - it's up to you!

Then we will spend the morning building our seasonal sets, demonstrating how to light them appropriately and photographing the owls and harvest mice, ensuring that your settings are exactly right for the effects you wish to create with each one.

Over lunch we will review your morning's shots and choose your favourites.

These are the images we will continue to work on during the afternoon, importing them into Lightroom and Photoshop to add the post processing and graphic elements that will turn a nice shot into a one-of-a-kind seasonal greeting that your friends, family, colleagues and clients will treasure!
