Vintage Portraiture






Event Overview

Leica Akademie has obtained exclusive access to one of Melbourne’s iconic Victorian houses, Villa Alba in Kew. This late 19th Century home has been preserved as a museum and the ornate wall covering are all in original condition.

This makes the Villa a perfect location for Vintage Portraiture and we have enlisted the help of some Victorian costume enthusiasts who will pose for us in faithfully hand-made and completely authentic Victorian and Edwardian costumes. The Villa’s amazing wall covering make superb backdrops for high quality portraits, and the quality of light inside is ideal for photography.

Your Leica Akademie instructor will demonstrate both available light thinking and capture, as well as more formal lighting techniques using Profoto studio gear.

As always, lunch is included.
