Newborn Photography School – New Dates!
We are excited to be holding another Newborn Photography School with Claire Elliot where you can really learn to define yourself as a newborn photographer. Our school teaches you all you need to know to begin photographing newborns and as the group is small (Limited to 8 spaces) there’s plenty of opportunity to take many photos, ask questions and chat with other newborn photography students.
The Newborn Photography School in association with The Guild of Photographers and is the first school of this kind here in the UK.
Comprising of three newborn photography training workshops from July 2016 to November 2016 run by Claire Elliott, panel member of The Guild and award winning newborn photographer and trainer.
Held at the premises of Newborn Baby Posing Limited, Church Road, Gatley, Cheadle, Cheshire SK8 4NG
Includes lunch and refreshments throughout the day and a 10% discount code to use at Newborn Baby Posing Limited.
Each workshop is designed to build and progress your confidence, skills and profile as a newborn photographer culminating in a Qualification with The Guild for all successful candidates.
The Newborn Photography School package also includes one year’s membership with The Guild for current non-members. Members of The Guild already will be able to use their huge 10% discount code against the cost of the school – a saving of £120.00.
