Create the illusion of different room settings for your product types and discover why storytelling is the most important lesson of all. 

Who is this workshop designed for?

- If you run a brand that makes or sells small products (from pottery to jewellery, lampshades to handbags) and you are frustrated with your photography, then this workshop is for you.

- If you make unique or one-off items and can’t justify hiring a pro each time, our easy to follow techniques are just what you need.

- If you are a one-man-band kind of business who does everything yourself, then this workshop is essential for reducing the stress that comes with taking photos without training. Your images are the window display of your brand, make them sparkle.

- If you want to dive deeper, getting to know your camera and using it with confidence, this workshop will teach you how to think like a pro.

- If you learn better in person and want to instantly improve with professional guidance, grab your place today in this sell out workshop. 

What’s Included?

Exclusive Access.

With a maximum of just two students per workshop and two tutors, you’ll enjoy 1 to 1 training with experienced professionals.

Focussed on you.

We’ll focus our learning around your products, to ensure you see the very best examples of how to apply our lessons.

Time to practise.

Our workshop includes time to put the theory into practise using our props and backdrops and enjoy capturing photos that you can use.

A relaxed escape.

Once described as a spa day where you learn stuff, our workshops offer an opportunity to really open your mind to new skills. We don’t have a spa, but our beautiful calm rural barn setting will envelop you with inspiration and leave you fizzing with new ideas.

Brain fuel.

Our barista-style espresso bar and healthy light lunch & snacks will keep you fuelled throughout the day. 

Not Included

Overnight accommodation is not included, but we can recommend local places to stay.

Due to the limited number of live workshop dates, it is unlikely that you will be able to reschedule a workshop if you cannot make it. Please check your calendar before purchase.

We make small backdrops.

Photo Boards® are designed by pro photographers, specifically for capturing mega close up shots. We love to use them instead of heavy pieces of wood and marble and we are confident they are the highest quality macro backdrops you'll find.

The 60 x 60cm Photo Board (pictured) is perfect for capturing dishes of deliciousness in food photography.

The smaller 40 x 40cm cropped version is ideal for tiny subjects such as jewellery, or your coin collection.

Happy Photographers.

Loved by all skill levels of photographers and brands both large and small, Photo Boards are the cost-effective backdrop solution for creating an instant, stylish table-top set for product & food photography.

Easy to store, set up and shoot, Photo Boards will give you the confidence and inspiration you need to get creative, and level-up your shots to look professional in a crowded online world.

Simply unwrap, place and shoot and discover how a true replica background can transform your photography.

Photo Boards® are exact 1:1 replicas of beautiful original designs, created or collected by our founder Lyndsey James. From painted effects to pieces of marble, wood and metal, each unique original piece is replicated to perfection, before shadow depth is added to enhance the true-to-life appearance when used in your photos. The result is a true to scale background which looks just like the real thing!

Photo Boards® are crafted from lightweight and durable 3mm PVC board. The designs are printed at super high resolution so that you can confidently use them in direct contact with your subjects, without needing to blur them in the background. They are available in 40x40 cm and 60x60 cm sizes.

Loved by awesome brands.
