• The DIY studio

Professional lighting on a shoestring

Let's face it - the cost of studio gear is just prohibitive. So how do you start producing those stunning images that will lift your photography out of the ordinary into the realms of professionalism? You use what you can - go shoestring, make a plan, and get used to the fact that photography is 50% problem-solving!

Here's how we do it: due to so many requests for startup advice, I've started writing up all those little DIY photography tips gathered over the years. This information will be serialised into a series of newsletters (OK, I admit - I don't have the time to write it ALL up in one go and send you the complete document!). Just sign up for it below, and I'll send you the info as and when I write up the next piece of money-saving advice. By the way, it's free.
