Students give this workshop an average rating of 5 out of 5 stars
I was so excited about Samira's one-on-one fine art portrait workshop and it did not disappoint! Even having more advanced knowledge of lighting and photography, I still took so much away with me. From styling, to subtle/classic posing techniques, new lighting diagrams and retouching techniques, Samira's workshop was money well spent.

This was the best educational experience ever. Samira is a true talent and professional and she has a gentle touch and understanding of how to bring out the best in people. Everything she does is with great attention and love. Even our lunch was fantastic, she had a catering company serve us fresh and delicious food.

For many years I have done portraits of adults, and somehow I have been afraid to work with children. The challenge for me was that I just dont know how to pose them or communicate my ideas. Samira gave each student private time to shoot each model and with her directions and advice, I captured some amazing images. I feel more confident now.

I can see clearly the difference now in using softwares to do the skin retouching for you and to do it your self. I have been using filters for years, but now I finally started understanding the power of color grading something yourself. So much more to learn, Im hoping for editing only workshops by Samira in the future.
by Tasha S.
Simple and effective. I learned how I dont have to over complicate my ideas and how every gesture, color and texture are important for my composition. Looking forward to the next workshop opportunity.

I have been a photographer for many years in the wedding sector. I was always interested in portraits, and I will book a shoot giving complete freedom of styling to the model/client, thinking that this will give me best and easiest results. Well, now I see how I should be more in control and coordinate styling and colors of clothes and make up better. It makes a difference to have more control over the styling in the final image.
