Composite Photography Course

George Fairbairn will be bringing his 'Making the Impossible, Possible' seminar to Surrey on the 1 July 2014, Kent on the 2 July 2014 and to Cambridgeshire on the 3 July 2014.

George will be teaching photographers how pose and light subjects for a composite image, then he will move on to photographing backgrounds and compiling the images in Photoshop to output the final image.

These practical hands on seminars are limited on space, so booking early is advised to ensure your place at one of these courses.
