Posh Frocks & Boudoir Portfolio Builder Weekend - SOLD OUT!

After the resounding success of the June Cinematic Portfolio Builder Weekend, we have decided to roll out the red carpet again this December. And what better way to get ready for the festive season than to celebrate with elegant styling and a good helping of opulence? It will certainly sit well with the sophistication and grandeur of the venue. Our creative team has drawn inspiration from the colours and textures of this historic manor house to source and create an array of beautiful gowns and lingerie.

Welle Manor Hall on the borders of Cambridge and Norfolk, has been painstakingly styled by professional interior designers, each room with its own unique charm. This time, we will again be using the delightful ground floor reception rooms, but also the sumptuous luxury of the first floor bedrooms and main bathroom.

We are pretty excited about the event and think you will be too. Here’s what we have lined up for you.

  • Six professional, fully-styled models
  • A team of professional make-up, hair and wardrobe stylists
  • Six fully-styled and professionally lit sets in the rooms over two floors of a magnificent Grade II Medieval and Tudor manor house
  • Six separate shoots, three per day with a different model per shoot 
  • A technical assistant to provide support during each shoot
  • A tutorial on editing

Day One

After the meet-and-greet, we kick off with a brief outline of how the two days will run. This is followed by an informative presentation with example images, to set you up for your first shoot and carry you through till the end of the day. You will be one of 12 photographers working in groups of 4, each one with a technical assistant in attendance at all times. He is there to answer your queries and provide any support you may require. There will be plenty of shoot time; starting at 11:30am, you will photograph 3 models around the manor house. At 5pm, we wrap for the day.

Day Two

Time to regroup for our second day. Same format as Day One, but this time we begin with a short tutorial on editing. You will already have covered composition, framing, lighting, shoot angle and all the other things to be considered at the point you click the shutter.

And by the way, there will be time for refreshments and a lunch break on each day.
