The Neil van Neikerk workshop which was held at the Portmarnock Hotel recently was a wonderful experience. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day which was packed with useful information and practical sessions. Neil has a fantastic ability to make learning easy with a relaxed presentation and style that comes from years of experience. He was accompanied on the day by his assistant Jessica and with beautiful models Roz Purcell and Hannah Devane on hand, we could not ask for more. We were also very lucky with the weather for the outdoors portrait sessions, and it held dry for the day with a soft light that made for some great shooting.
Neil displayed the on camera flash techniques for which he is justifiably regarded, as well as using video light for dramatic portrait lighting. The Portmarnock Hotel provided some lovely locations for the sessions and we certainly distracted a lot of The All Ireland Football Final fans when they caught eye of the models.
Thanks especially to Liam Ramsell of Pro Foto Training for brining Neil to Ireland and organising the event so well. It was amazing value and I could not recommend it highly enough.
I intend posting some shots from the workshop here and on my website in the coming weeks.
