Gwyn said: “Damien’s unique style of training has changed my photography forever! This new video delves deeper into the use of light and has already changed how I shoot in dark spaces, direct my subjects and think differently about how I compose my images. Most of all, it’s encouraged me to push myself further!”

Stephen said: ”Every time i get down with my photography I take out Damien’s videos and get totally inspired. He is ” The Master Of Light ” , Damien could make a fab photo out of a rusty bucket. Probably the best out there. His wife Julie is also a fab photographer ( great for the bride shots ). Amazing amazing amazing is all I can say.”

Marko said: Nobody can even come close to your light tutorials. Such a joy to watch. Keep on being awesome Damien.

What will I receive?

This Lovegrove video production has been split into several bite sized parts to make it quicker and easier to download. Each part is a zipped folder containing the video files you need. Once you’ve downloaded and unzipped everything, place all the files into one folder and store in a safe and convenient place on your computer. We recommend that you download one part at a time to help reduce the chance of a connection failure, resulting in incomplete files.

How do I download my order?

Once you have completed checkout you will be redirected back to our site and will also be sent an automatic receipt via email – both will contain the download links for your order. Please check your spam/junk folders if you think you haven’t received your download links!

Please also make sure your email address is correct when checking out.

How do I play the video on my tablet or smart phone?

We recommend you first download the files onto a desktop or laptop computer, where, in most cases, you have the ability to extract (unzip) the zipped files. From here you can synchronise the files with your smart devices in the usual way. For seemless viewing of chapters/parts we recommend you create a new playlist in iTunes, drag in all the video chapters/parts and then synchronise the playlist to your device.

Please don’t attempt to download the videos directly onto your mobile device(tablet, ipad, smart phone). You’ll need to download the files onto your desktop or laptop computer first.

Quicktime support for PC users

You may have read about Apple ceasing support of Quicktime software for Windows users. PC users have also been encouraged to delete the Quicktime application from their computers for fear of potential security risks. We would also highly recommend PC users delete Quicktime as soon as possible.

Whilst our videos may state they are Quicktime files, they are actually H.264 encoded MPEG-4 files that should play perfectly fine within many other media players and pose zero security threat in themselves. VLC is a popular free media player that plays .mov files. http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html

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.”
