John has put together an all new show for 2016 and can't wait to take it to all points of the UK are Ireland with The Societies. Every show will be different as it will be inspired by the host venue, the needs of the audience, the weather, available light, available outfits, the model....indeed all the elements that as a working photographer we need to consider to get the best for our clients.

Whatever your level of competence there will be something for you and John guarantees you will be educated and entertained in equal measure. Bring your camera and a notebook and a speedlight if you have one. All off camera flash instruction will be done using Elinchrom Quadra's but techniques shown are equally applicable to speedlight setups. You will get shooting opportunities during the day.
