Following on from the huge success of Speedlight Mastery, we have now produced a completely new training video for you to watch. Available as a two-disc DVD set, or in high definition as a digital download, ‘Lighting Studio Portraits’ will inform and teach photographers the most important technical skills in lighting and capturing striking ‘studio’ portraits.
It’s important to realise that you do not need a studio to appreciate the invaluable content on this training video. Damien explains from the start that you don’t need a studio, you just create your ‘studio’ anywhere! The right type of lighting and a simple background is all you need to start producing ‘studio-style’ portraits.
Damien will take you through the step by step process of how each shot is created. From where to position the lighting, which camera settings are used, how to best compose shots and what additional accessories may work to enhance the quality of the image, it is all here. Each chapter ends with the photographs and a summary of the exact settings used to create them.
By the end of the tutorial you will have the technical knowledge, understanding and creative confidence to reproduce the same shots for your own clients.
Feed off Damien’s expertise and enthusiasm for creating fabulously lit portraits, and go on a journey of discovery. So dim your lights, grab some snacks and download ‘Lighting Studio Portraits’ now – we guarantee you won’t regret it!

What will I receive?
This 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. Please ensure your email address is correct when checking out.
We strongly recommend that you create an online account with us (if you do not already have one) so that you can easily access all download files in your account whenever you wish.
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 the video chapters/parts and then sync the playlist.
