Pete uses off camera flash everyday as an wedding photographer. He can use it to overpower the sun, and create flattering light for the bride and groom. He’s very good a what he does, and a great person to learn from.

On the first day we will talk about the different types of strobes and how to get the most out of them on and off camera. The second day we will move from TTL to manual flash control, and from wired to wireless triggers. At the end of the weekend we will hit the beach and Pete will give a short masterclass in location lighting with a model.

Students should have their own digital SLR camera. If you have a flash please bring it along, but it is not necessary for the course.  We will have plenty of gear for everyone to play with test out.

For me, off camera flash is a useful tool that allows me to get editorial shots that would have otherwise been impossible. There’s a flash and either a trigger or cords kept in my travel bag so that I always have the option of bringing my own light to the party.
