 Dreaming Of Becoming A Professional Photographer?

A Past Students Testimonial

It's now 8 months since I have taken the photography course with The Bruce Smith Academy, a lot has happened since then, 7 editorials published, photo exhibited in the Royal Academy of Art Summer Exhibition, 3 look-books, all whilst keeping my full time IT job.

Before the course I knew how to use a camera but if you had ask me what is a look-book, I would not have had a clue. “Editorial” would have been something very abstract to me.

You can walk or you can fly, with Bruce you will always fly. Did I mentioned that I have just started testing with a top London model agency.

Important words from Bruce about his photography teaching.

“As a photographer with over 30 years experience I have learned the important key factors to becoming a great photographer of people, these include being an open person, communication skills, directing to get your images how you want them to be and controlling every aspect of your shoot.

All of the above are covered during my courses along with camera settings techniques, lighting with both studio and location strobes, on and off camera speed-lights and available light.

I will teach you which light modifier to use and when to use it, how to manipulate light using reflectors or diffusion screens.

You will build an understanding of the difference between harsh light and contrast, what is fall off and how it effects your finished images. Metering to get the best exposures.

A big part of my lighting techniques involves the understanding of the texture of light and how to decide how to use these light textures to light your own images the way I lights my images.

I will teach you how to achieve amazing images in camera so your unique style can be based around your photographic skills and not be created from hours of post production retouching.

It may sound complicated but I promises to teach you all of my skills, knowledge and techniques that I can in a very easy to understand way.”

All of the courses are specially designed by Bruce

Especially for the photographer that is wishing to work as a fashion photographer, a wedding and portrait photographer, a model portfolio photographer, as a beauty photographer, as a fine art nude photographer or the keen photographer just wishing to learn how to shoot better people photography images.
