We are pleased to invite you to our next Portrait Photography Workshop, a great opportunity to improve your skills and immerse yourself in a professional studio shooting.

“A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it.”

Edward Steichen

During the evening you will be introduced to many aspects of Portrait Photography, from the concept and mood we wish to achieve in our portraits to the choice of the make for our model. You will be taught a minimum of two light setups and you will receive tips and suggestions on how to pose the subject and establish a good relationship with her/him to obtain the most out of your pictures.

All our models are chosen from professional agencies and all the attendees will have his/her own time to be the main photographer and direct the whole shooting.

Luca Monti, our main tutor, has run workshops for the last 20 years both in Paris and Rome. He will be available to answer all your questions and to help you during the shooting together with his collaborators. All our workshops are suitable for both beginners and intermediate photographers.

The maximum number of participant is limited to 8 persons to allow everyone to shoot with a relaxed pace and in friendly studio environment.


  • Discussion of the shoot concept and decision of the model’s makeup
  • Introduction to lighting for portraits and explanation of the chosen light setup
  • First shooting session
  • Small break and change of the light setups
  • Second shooting session
  • Final thoughts and goodbyes


The model for this workshop will be : Melissa



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

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

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



Time: from 6.30 am to 9.30 pm
