Get Your Photography Career Started This Summer!
Photography has always been a hobby from my early teens. But in late 2017, I decided to take it up seriously as a professional and in that short period of time, I’ve improved my skills and technique.
I believe that learning is a life long process. So while there’s still much room for improvement, I believe that I’m the best person to teach you what I’ve learned after two years of working with clients and brands. Being in this unique position as a new professional, also means that I understand your needs much better.
This photography workshop is for beginners who need practical tutoring on how to improve their photography skills, build a portfolio and book their first client!
There will be online workshops as well as a physical workshop in London which will consist of 3 independent classes. The online workshops will be tailored to each individual while the physical workshop in London will be a full day workshop covering various topics with a model in attendance to practice all you’ll learn on the day.
In order to ensure optimal learning, the online workshops will be individual sessions or a max of 2 people per session, while the physical workshop will be a small class with 5-7 spaces only.
Some of what you’ll learn:
- Camera settings for various locations and lighting situations
- Live demonstration on how to take flat lays and indoor portraits using natural light
- Selecting and using props for product photography
- Developing a theme and creating a mood board
- Directing and posing models
- Outdoor photoshoot with a model
- Guidelines on collaborating with other creatives
- Building a portfolio
- Techniques on taking self-portraits
- Editing with Adobe Lightroom
- Creating your own presets
- Branding and social media marketing

Note that this isn’t an exhaustive list of topics to be covered in the workshop. It will be tailored to the needs of the attendees. Also, there will be time allocated to edit the images taken on the day using the Adobe Lightroom techniques learned.
What You’ll Need
- A camera and SD card
- Laptop with Adobe Lightroom installed
- Laptop charger and camera batteries
The online workshops tailored to each individual will commence from July, and the physical workshops will take place in August. Full details will be available in June. If interested in an online or physical workshop in London, fill the form below and I’ll get back to you.
I found Lize’s page on Instagram and followed her because I liked the work she did. Getting an opportunity to have a session with her was great. I loved the professionalism shown and was very impressed by the quality of both her services and work. I am based out of London and Lize helped me to pick a beautiful location for my shoot which I was very impressed with. Thank you so much for your services.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Lize! On a brief trip to London, I was hoping to arrange a boudoir shoot that I had been wanting to have for some time. Upon discovering Lize, I instantly knew that I had found my Photographer. She accommodated my schedule, connected me with a makeup artist, arrived on time, and made sure that I was comfortable throughout the shoot. As this was my first boudoir experience, she provided me with a ton of ideas that we could play with to make sure I got the results that I was looking for. Following the shoot, I promptly received proofs and ultimately the final retouched photos that are absolutely stunning. I remain impressed by her professionalism and attention to detail, and I highly recommend Lize to anyone who is looking for quality photographs that they will cherish for a lifetime.
Lize made me feel comfortable from the very beginning. She gave me all the freedom I needed and also helped when I wanted her to direct me. She’s got a great eye for flattering poses and really captures the beauty of the moment. The photoshoot was fun and watching her do what comes naturally just had me in awe. The photos were absolutely phenomenal and I will definitely be working with her again!
It was a joy to work with Lize. She showed up on time and took a real interest in what we wanted to get out of the shoot. She asked questions, listened really well and gave some great support/advice that helped us create some incredible photos. In the end, not only did we get some amazing shots but the entire shoot ended up being really enjoyable. I had so much fun and learnt a lot shooting with Lize and I can’t recommend her enough.
I was really pleased with the outcome of my headshot. The initial shooting day was a fun and enjoyable experience, we took a variety of shots in different locations with a variety of outdoor backdrops and the editing process was quick. Overall, the service was great and worth recommending.
Booking with Lize was well worth it! As an aspiring model, I wanted to book a photographer who could capture my vision of beautiful and edgy photos, and she delivered! I appreciate her professionalism, timeliness and good character. Definitely recommend her services to anyone wanting to capture their special moments while in London!
I really enjoyed my photo shoot and my time with Lize. I’ve taken professional photos before and I have to say my time with Lize was my favorite photo shoot. She helped me before the shoot decide on a location in London. Lize came up with a lot of fun and creative shots and was also welcoming of my ideas and input and made me feel very comfortable and at ease. I would recommend Lize’s skills and this photo shoot experience to anyone.
Lize was amazing. I felt really comfortable in front of the camera and we were able to get some amazing creative shots. 10/10 would recommend.
A surprise engagement in London and Lize was available the next day! She has a wonderful taste for photography and the focus remains on the subjects while capturing the beauty of the city. A wonderful balance. We adore our pictures from this momentous event. Lize was sweet and creative. We would recommend her wholeheartedly.
Lize put together a team for the shoot quickly and efficiently and on set was always looking for ways to innovate, directing and experimenting compositions with confidence. Lize demonstrated a positive can-do attitude throughout the day and in spite of bad weather, we managed to complete three looks in record time. A great team player and an asset to any project.
Lize is a great photographer. I did an outdoor shoot with her in a very public area, but she made the experience fun and comfortable. She is quick and professional and I got my proofs and edits in no time! I highly recommend her and would love to work with her again!
