    "Best quality photo prints I've seen in YEARS! Beautiful matte photo paper, absolutely stunning colours. Took a chance and ordered online, no adjustments to my images, no idea what to expect… What a surprise and absolute pleasure to receive my small, well packaged order, so promptly. Best price, professional quality, super helpful when I called for help with payment too. I can wholeheartedly recommend Studio 22 … 122%."

Steve Castings Workshop – Advanced Course

Two Day Advanced Workshop : 9th and 10th September.

Thank you for showing interest in our 2017  Portraiture Workshop in Cape Town. As stated this workshop will be based on Practical Instruction with the core focus of working strobes, scene, model, post production and composition in ONE CAPTURE.

I will be dividing the Workshop into two groups of two and then broken down into working pairs. We will have two light stations where Models will be placed and during the course of the day, models will alternate scenes and Wardrobes.

The main objective here and this is critical that you take away a new skill set in your Photography. I understand that we have very professional models and you may just want the opportunity in shooting with them, however , it is very important to my brand and to me as the course instructor, that you harness this new skill!

There will be absolutely no captures taken “ off strobe “ unless they are BTS images! I will also be choosing two of your best images for me to edit as well as providing all “ Photoshop “ users with a easy PS Action, so please bring with a  FLASH STICK.

Sigma South Africa have given me Canon & Nikon mount Art lenses and you will all be shooting at one stage with this stunning glass as well as having the opportunity shooting with the new FujiFilm XT-2.

I will also be providing all strobes and modifiers so NO NEED TO BRING LIGHTS!

NB: Please advise me on what camera body you have
