The first of these to be announced today is a studio based live shoot that I will be holding at Juntion 11 Studios outside Banbury in England. This is my favourite studio in the UK to use for my own professional commercial work and is without doubt one of the very best and well equipped studios that the UK has to offer. During this event I will be walking those attending through the lighting involved in a typical shoot at the studio that I would conduct and giving those attending the chance to work with me and also capture some amazing photography of their own, and there will be cake!"

Tim Wallace - Live Car Shoot at Junction 11 Studio UK

Car photography is, as most that have tried it will testify, complex in its nature at time with many lighting issues to overcome along the journey with light falling onto highly reflective curved surfaces. The work of Tim Wallace is globally recognised to be not only of a highly creative style and flair but also Tim is very well known for achieving much of his photography ‘in camera’ with the clever and adoptive use of lighting.

This is a Studio based class at the infamous Junction 11 Studios near Banbury, the home of many high end Pro car shoots for such people as Aston Martin, Jaguar and Land Rover and is a rare chance to spend a day working within such a studio with one of the worlds leading car photographers. You will be shooting and starting the process from scratch as Tim walks you through each step. You will be look looking at shape, form and light and how they relate to each other, the issues that we are faced with when lighting a multi-angled reflective surface at a professional level. Working with multiple lights we will learn more of how light has a direct impact on what transposes through to our final image. During this studio shoot day we will also be looking at different techniques that we can deploy to get a range of lighting effects using continuous lighting for our car photography and also how these are very different to working with traditional strobes.

During this seminar Tim will be talking through and demonstarting continous lighting as an introduction, how it works, how he applies that and how we can use such lighting for creating some truly great professional standard images. Tim will also be demonstrating and talking through light modifiers, strobe flash for such work as detail shots and what can be achieved with these, as well as how to use them to best affect and creatively regardless of you having several lights at your disposal or just one.

This seminar is car based but the lessons learned and demonstrated in this session can be applied to shooting a wide range of subjects such as people and products.
This class is both and is aimed at people who would like to learn a little about lighting progressing from hand held flash guns to those that have experience in working with professional studio strobe and wish to take their lighting further.
