Group experiences – Sharing the costs

You could save money by grouping together with friends or colleagues to share your training experience. If you are keen on attending a group training event and have already organised yourself into a group, please email us to discuss your needs. Prices below.

  • 1-to-2 training (full day) – £600 +VAT per person
  • 1-to-3 training (full day) – £450 +VAT per person
  • 1-to-4 training (full day) – £350 +VAT per person

I have to say that you never stopped teaching throughout the whole day. I will recommend the day to all my friends. Your training was first-rate and your welcome friendliness and encouragement to get me out of my comfort zone was inspirational.

Travelling

You can travel to us or Damien can travel to your studio or location of choice. We will therefore require his travel and possible accommodation costs to be covered. Let us know when and where you’d like the training and we’ll be happy to give you a quote.

Mileage is charged at just 45p a mile and Damien doesn’t charge for his travel time.

On one training day Damien flew to Scotland in the morning, was picked up by the client and flew back in the evening. Total travel expenses were less than £100.

Choosing a model

We can offer a selection of models to suit your genre/s for you to choose from. Alternatively you can book your own model or models. As in Case Study 3, you could choose to hire different models throughout the day if you have a combination of genres you need to shoot. For example, one eminent client chose one elderly lady, one young mum and one glamorous woman in her 40s. Another client chose a pregnant model, a teenager and a woman in her late 30s. During these types of days the models were only needed for approx. 2 hours each and they supplied their own makeup.

You are a true gentleman and your way of creating a respectful environment for the model was a great source on inspiration to me.

1-to-1 session – Lighting studio portraits with one or two lights

In this 1-to-1 session I taught my delegate how to create striking and simple portraits with the minimum of studio equipment. We covered the basics and then went on to shoot the dramatic and stylish images shown here.

It’s not how many lights you have in the studio that matters, it’s what you can do with them that counts. In one exciting session I can teach you how to take control of your lights to produce fabulous portraits. These skills will be with you forever.

More information about this shoot can be found on Damien’s blog. 1-to-1 Lovegrove studio training

Makeup began at 8.30am and my delegate arrived shortly after 9.00 having driven down from London. We discussed the day’s proceedings, goals and objectives with the team over coffee. The shoot session started at 9.30am we had various breakouts throughout the day for costume changes, lighting rigging and refreshments. Lunch was at the nearby pub, just 5 minutes walk away. The afternoon session started with a complete change of styles and the day eventually concluded at 5.30pm.

My delegate then drove into Bristol where he stayed overnight in a boutique hotel, The next day a different model and I joined him at the hotel for a 1-to-1 boudoir shoot training session. See Case Study 2.

1-to-1 boudoir shoot training at a boutique hotel in Bristol

This 1:1 training session was for the same delegate as Case Study 1. He wanted to further develop his skills at photographing women. He stayed in this boutique hotel for two nights and we shot in the bedroom throughout the day between. Chantelle, our model, did her own hair and makeup. We used just one light and a lot of imagination throughout the day.

We have many fine hotels and cottages available for boudoir shoots and you can get great value by combining the shoot venue with your accommodation.

1-to-1 boudoir training in a basement apartment

Below are a small sample set of pictures from a 1:1 training session. My brief was to teach how I create my high and low key boudoir shots with minimalist lighting kit. My client had the foresight to invest in a Lupolux Quadlight and a Lupolux 800 HMI spotlight so that is what we used. These pictures were taken in a very dark basement flat in Clifton Bristol. It is typically the hardest environment to shoot in so the maximum learning experience was gained. It is easy to shoot boudoir in a bright apartment with big windows but here we lit almost every shot from scratch.

Once we had covered the boudoir genre we went on to shoot Lovegrove nudes.

Your enthusiasm, technical expertise and creative marketing solutions are brilliant. Your generosity and willingness to share this with me is very much appreciated and will be greatly valued for a very long time.

  4. 5 out of 5

    :

    The 1:1 workshop with Damien was the best that I ever had, and the images that I captured are also the best in my portfolio. Without a doubt, Damien is the best boudoir photographer in the world. The shoot was expensive but completely worth it!

  5. 5 out of 5

    :

    Many thanks for the two inspiring days in Bristol. The job I did the day after returning, was done under terrible conditions (rainy, dark and freezing cold). But thanks to what I experienced in Bristol, it all went well and the girls I photographed really had fun. So, again; thank you. The time and money was well spent!

  6. 5 out of 5

    :

    Thank you to you and your team for pointing me in the right direction and giving me the tools and confidence to value my work more! I’ve just had a very good viewing using the projector and the order value is nearly £4000! A big thank you to the team.

  7. 5 out of 5

    :

    I had a couple of amazing days with tonnes and tonnes of consideration & patient tutoring from Damien. Also a big thanks to both the models for their patience. I learnt LOADS and feel that I will be back for more in the not too distant future :)

    :

    I thought I’d just drop you a line to say what a truly inspiring day I had last week! I learned an unbelievable amount and came away with some awesome pictures. Once again thank you for a memorable and inspiring day.

  9. 5 out of 5

    :

    I would like to thank you for your guidance on the 1 to 1 session yesterday. It was a really enjoyable experience and I certainly learnt a great deal under your guidance. It has given me a lot to think about, and opened up a range of potential shooting scenarios for me. Having started working through the images they all look great, even the ones in low light! Look forward to attending another training day with you again in the future.

My delegate then drove into Bristol where he stayed overnight in a boutique hotel, The next day a different model and I joined him at the hotel for a 1-to-1 boudoir shoot training session. See Case Study 2.

1-to-1 boudoir shoot training at a boutique hotel in Bristol

This 1:1 training session was for the same delegate as Case Study 1. He wanted to further develop his skills at photographing women. He stayed in this boutique hotel for two nights and we shot in the bedroom throughout the day between. Chantelle, our model, did her own hair and makeup. We used just one light and a lot of imagination throughout the day.

We have many fine hotels and cottages available for boudoir shoots and you can get great value by combining the shoot venue with your accommodation.

1-to-1 boudoir training in a basement apartment

Below are a small sample set of pictures from a 1:1 training session. My brief was to teach how I create my high and low key boudoir shots with minimalist lighting kit. My client had the foresight to invest in a Lupolux Quadlight and a Lupolux 800 HMI spotlight so that is what we used. These pictures were taken in a very dark basement flat in Clifton Bristol. It is typically the hardest environment to shoot in so the maximum learning experience was gained. It is easy to shoot boudoir in a bright apartment with big windows but here we lit almost every shot from scratch.

Once we had covered the boudoir genre we went on to shoot Lovegrove nudes.

Award winning UK-based photographer Damien Lovegrove can be booked for bespoke photography training days anywhere in the world.

What type of training can I specify?

Damien can teach many different portrait genres and technical skills to improve your photography. Here’s a small sample of what your day could include.

Genres

  • Boudoir
  • Beauty
  • Fashion
  • Art Nude

  • Pregnancy
  • Or another genre of your choice or a combination of genres

  • Speedlights and triggers

What a truly inspiring day I had last week! I learned an unbelievable amount and came away with some awesome pictures. Thank you for a memorable and inspiring day.

Group experiences – Sharing the costs

You could save money by grouping together with friends or colleagues to share your training experience. If you are keen on attending a group training event and have already organised yourself into a group, please email us to discuss your needs. Prices below.

  • 1-to-2 training – £600 +VAT per person
  • 1-to-3 training – £450 +VAT per person
  • 1-to-4 training – £350 +VAT per person

I have to say that you never stopped teaching throughout the whole day. I will recommend the day to all my friends. Your training was first-rate and your welcome friendliness and encouragement to get me out of my comfort zone was inspirational.

Travelling

You can travel to us or Damien can travel to your studio or location of choice. We will therefore require his travel and possible accommodation costs to be covered. Let us know when and where you’d like the training and we’ll be happy to give you a quote.

Mileage is charged at just 45p a mile and Damien doesn’t charge for his travel time.

On one training day Damien flew to Scotland in the morning, was picked up by the client and flew back in the evening. Total travel expenses were less than £100.

Choosing a model

We can offer a selection of models to suit your genre/s for you to choose from. Alternatively you can book your own model or models. As in Case Study 3, you could choose to hire different models throughout the day if you have a combination of genres you need to shoot. For example, one eminent client chose one elderly lady, one young mum and one glamorous woman in her 40s. Another client chose a pregnant model, a teenager and a woman in her late 30s. During these types of days the models were only needed for approx. 2 hours each and they supplied their own makeup.

You are a true gentleman and your way of creating a respectful environment for the model was a great source on inspiration to me.

In this 1-to-1 session I taught my delegate how to create striking and simple portraits with the minimum of studio equipment. We covered the basics and then went on to shoot the dramatic and stylish images shown here.

It’s not how many lights you have in the studio that matters, it’s what you can do with them that counts. In one exciting session I can teach you how to take control of your lights to produce fabulous portraits. These skills will be with you forever.
