Marcus Bell – Expressive Portraits



In stock



Event Overview

Marcus Bell is regarded as one of the most creative wedding/portrait photographers in the world and one of the keys to his success are the expressions he manages to capture. Beyond wedding photography, all great images of people depend heavily on the subjects’ expressions and emotions, so in this hands-on workshop Marcus will demonstrate how he works with his subjects to create expressive and creative portraits. The location will be out in the streets of Melbourne CBD, so there is no shortage of creative locations to work with within easy walk of the Leica Gallery.

10.00am – 12.00pm. Classroom session. Marcus will present his work and how he approaches creating his own unique photographic look.

12.00pm – 1.00pm. Lunch (included)

1.00pm – 3.00pm. Practical session working with portrait subjects, looking for great light and locations, and then capturing those fleeting moments of expression.

3.00pm – 5.00pm. Back to the classroom where Marcus will demonstrate how he polishes his images to a final result using Lightroom and Photoshop.
