Wedding portrait photography, family photos, professional photos, school photos and photos of pets, babies and small children are popular forms of portrait photography.

Learn the tricks to taking professional portrait photos. With practical demonstrations, advice and hands on projects you will learn how to capture your subjects in the best light and experiment with different styles to find your own unique photographic style. You are free to choose your subjects for the shoots - you may like to photograph friends or family members for some fantastic momentos from the course.
