Shooting Away from the Studio at Home and Abroad


Presented by Jakob Gronkjaer

Subject: Portrait Lighting Intermediate
Day: Sunday 14th Jan 2018
Time: 15.30 to 17.30 - Masterclass
Main Speaker Jakob Gronkjaer in room : Hilton Meeting Rooms A Orange Feet

Planning for an on location shoot can be as simple as taking your main body with a 24-70 lens with you and wearing your most charming smile... or it can be as complex as requiring a government-approved translator to explain exactly why hanging off of a 6th Century BC railing is justified 'for the sake of the art'.

Whether it’s a pre-, post- or during wedding, a commissioned editorial work or just shooting for pleasure, sometimes a little bit of pre-shoot preparation can make the difference between getting the shot and getting a first class schooling from your not-so-friendly policeman.

Jakob has shot both for business and pleasure at a variety of venues both in the UK and across Europe and experienced everything from stern looks from passing tour guides, attempted theft by locals surrounding the shoot, questioning from security guards, being shooed away by police, and being shouted at by an angry nuns and all whilst fully complying with local rules, regulations and respecting customs and traditions!

Sit down and prepare to take notes on considerations that go into planning for the known and the unknown when you’re shooting at more random locations, as well as things to look out for when coming up with a Plan B, C, D and Z. In the end, the more resourceful you are and the more you plan, the less likely you are to come up against problems and can focus on the photography. This Masterclass will cover everything from logistics and gear considerations to location scouting and random passer-by participation. The information you will glean will help ensure your next location shoot, whatever the subject, will be the smoothest possible.

Five reasons to attend this class:

1. The ONLY Masterclass to tell you how to deal with angry nuns, pushy security guards and foreign police officers
2. Gain insight in how to rationalise gear for travelling lighter from someone who usually requires a packhorse but can work with just 3 items of gear
3. Considerations beyond the obvious things like location or gear, as well as how deciding on one can help steer the other
4. Tips on working to a budget (and when and where to make compromises)
5. This Masterclass will be structured to allow open discussion between participants so that you and your fellow peers can brainstorm with others who have been in similar situations to make the most of the class
