REVIEWS

Martin said: “I’ve been saying for months now that the current new breed of trainers seem to be more self obsessed with styling and photoshop rather than teaching the basic fundaments of lighting and photography.

For me, in this video, Damien demonstrates brilliantly the concepts of great lighting. Techniques that you’ll be able to adapt to your own studio and wow your clients. In these tough times you have to offer imagery with substance and great lighting.

It’s simple, just relying on colour washing your images will get you quickly found out by your clients. After all instagram is already offering this as a crass substitute for art. You need to create imagery that your clients simply can’t reproduce. Great lighting is a way of doing that. Enjoy this great training video.”

“Like all of Damien’s training videos, there’s always something to learn! Whether I’m on a workshop or learning from one his training videos, I find myself entering a new door of creativity. Damien’s Hollywood Portraits continues the journey in a style of teaching that we have all become accustomed to. Seeing how amazing images are built from start to finish.

It’s refreshing to see a training video like this that extensively covers how to use continuous light effectively. We’re also shown how to build a scene with multiple light sources (including those already at the location), and all the essential details of what each light is doing and why. I love how Damien gets creative when it comes to light modifiers for both low and high key images! I was overjoyed to see Damien detailing some “printing” considerations at the shoot stage. Printing is often overlooked and most try to deal with this in post-production. Dealing with this when lighting your scene is always going to make the better picture.

If you’re like me, it just seems natural to head outdoors with a bunch of flashes when its time to add a bit of spark to your images. It was refreshing to see a whole bunch of new lighting techniques from Damien. He shows how to add natural light using multiple reflectors revealing beautifully lit images. In fact, after seeing how Damien does this, you’ll probably want take your reflectors with you on your next shoot!”

Radmila said: “I Love-love-love-this video! Excellent work again, Damien & everyone involved!

This is not Damien´s first training video I’ve seen, but certainly one of the best! As a wedding and portraiture photographer, I love to photograph glamour. Hollywood Portraits is all you need for making outstanding pictures that not only meets but exceeds the expectations of your clients!

If you are a wedding photographer, you´re dealing with several “Uncle Bobs” at each wedding. This video will show you how to build a scene with different light sources and how each light is working and why. Something that uncle Bob just can´t do! This video is the ultimate instruction for making pictures that will let you instantly stand out from the crowd and make your work remarkable, whether you photograph weddings or portraits.

Times are tough for us photographers, even in Germany. But actually, it is as simple as this: don´t be a “Photoshop-er”, be a photographer, create great images with great lighting, classy and elegant style and your work will hang on the wall of your client’s home forever. Damien shows in this video how to create those images.

One more thing 🙂
If you like this video, you just HAVE to attend one of his workshops! I have worked with Damien several times and his teaching ability is just amazing. Not only is he sharing all of his wisdom, his positive energy will lift your spirit.”

Damien Lovegrove is a world renowned portrait photographer and Fujifilm UK ambassador. He has been a TV cameraman, a commercial photographer, a wedding and portrait photographer and now he is a writer, columnist, teacher, motivator and artist.  He went to the BBC at the age of 19 and trained for three years to be a cameraman, going on to train as a Lighting Director, and leaving the BBC in 1998 to become a full time photographer.

He now specialises in making women look fabulous.

“I’m inspired by beauty and as I have matured as a photographer I’ve learned to see beauty in just about everyone and everywhere. It’s not what I look at that matters, it is what I see.

“Being a good portrait photographer requires key traits like having integrity, fun, respectfulness and a personable character. It wasn’t until I was in my early 30s that I began to gain that all important confidence needed to hone these skills, and I shot my first portrait in 1996 at the age of 32.”

“Some of the leading photographers I met early in my career had confidence and craft skills in bucket loads, but somehow they lost the desire or focus to really push themselves to greatness, and they fell by the wayside. It takes continual practice and improvement to get the most from photography and there are many obstacles along the way to overcome.”

“The secret of making consistently good photographs is to stay inspired and be passionate about photography. Inspiration fuels the learning of new techniques, and passion generates the motivation needed to continually practice.”
