The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.
— Dorothea Lange


An LPW Meet the Model event makes you the director of your private photo shoot. This event is a unique and affordable opportunity to let your personal creative vision shine through.

We give you access to the best styling, lighting, props and models in the business with the added advantage of a very skilled assistant in the shape of our own Luca Monti

If you want a photographic experience which gives you the time, the freedom and the tools to test your skills, look no further. With Meet the Model, the sky is the limit!

Who is Meet the Model for?

To get the most out of this unique opportunity, you need to feel confident behind the camera and comfortable enough to use your judgment during the shoot. Having said that, we’re not going to leave you completely on your own; our team will be available to offer you technical support and useful tips if you need us. 

Meet the Model events are one of our most popular events, and many of our customers come back, again and again, to work with different models, with different styling and in different locations.

How does the session work?

It’s brilliant in its simplicity. You book an hour-long session either alone or shared with another photographer. When you arrive, we will show you the studio, the equipment and introduce you to the models and our team. Then we leave you to your shoot. You work in our studio with professional equipment, models and crew at a fraction of the normal cost of a shoot.

What if I need help?

This is your shoot, run by you. However, Luca Monti and the LPW team are never far away if you need any assistance. 

What kind of lighting does LPW provide? Can I bring my own?

We are proud to be able to say that LPW events are technically light-years ahead of any of our competitors. We have lighting equipment from Bowens, Broncolor, Profoto, Briese, Arri and Kino Flo.  You are welcome to bring along any additional equipment you wish to use as long as you know how to use it. Remember, we don’t offer any tuition at these events.

Can I change the light or styling or the scenography?

Yes, this is your shoot, and you can make any changes you want to make it perfect. We only ask that you return everything to its original state at the end of your session.

Can I alter the Coloramas background?

Alterations are not included in the price of the Meet the Model session. If you want to change the background, the studio price is 10GBP per meter used. We also have a huge range of fabric background that you can use, free of charge.

Can I bring my own models?

If you have specific models you would like to use in addition to those provided by LPW; you may bring them along. However, you must accept full responsibility for their well-being and safety during the shoot.

Can I bring other creatives along?

If you want to bring assistants or other creatives along with you, you may. However, they will each have to pay a booking fee. If you prefer to bring your own crew, please contact us and to discuss the possibility of a discounted fee.

It is not important which camera you will bring along with you. We are very keen to welcome film cameras whether it is a 35mm camera or a medium format camera.

Arrangements can be made to hire cameras if you don’t own one or if you want to try something different, please ask when booking. If you have a Compact, Hybrid or Bridge camera you can still take part in this course, we guarantee to show how to get fantastic pictures with all types of cameras.

We suggest a lens that will allow you to crop to half-length and full-length figure. Ideally a 24-70mm (full-frame) or 18-55mm (APS) lens.

We will provide you with an RF trigger to work with the studio flashes in the studio if you don’t have your own.

No need to worry, just bring your creativity and your passion for photography!
