Having been a freelance photo-grapher for over a decade, Jake has been fortunate enough to be involved with some very varied and influential clients.
They have chosen him to represent their companies image and ideals because his work is always about ensuring a progressive aesthetic to any given campaign, with his results always standing out for the right reasons Being technically very proficient, and with a strong background in the pre-digital era of photography, his ability to capture dynamic visuals ‘in-camera’ without the need to rely on heavy post-production and photo manipulation has always made Jake far more adaptable on shoot day. It is for this reason that he has been the preferred choice for those clients who want to remain part of the creative process from start to finish.

During the course there will be plenty of time for hands-on shooting for everybody. On the day of the workshop Jake will be explaining in detail some of his most popular and sought after coloured lighting techniques.
We'll start off by looking at how we can add interest with colour to your standard studio lighting shots, then we'll be covering strong edge lighting techniques with gels and then finish up with a setup which involves a highly saturated colour wash. Throughout the day Jake will encouraging everybody to ask questions and he will be covering how to overcome some of the classic pitfalls usually encountered with gelled lighting.
