Photographic Studio Lighting Courses On Wight

Studio Workshop Isle of Wight Photography Workshops.The IWDIG provide training in all aspects of digital photography and our Studio Lighting Courses as photographers have already attended come highly recommended…

Just wanted to thank Gary and the Isle of Wight Digital Imaging Group for the most excellent photographic studio workshop last week-end at Dimbola.

The course was great, I learnt a lot and was impressed by how professional both the trainer and model were. I’m looking forward to a refresher course later in the year, thanks.

If you’ve always wanted to try studio photography, learn about lighting or just take the chance to shoot a professional model why not give one of these courses a go.

All studio courses are equipped with the latest Elinchrom computer controlled lighting systems.
