I´m super excited to announce my brand new portrait workshop! This is your time to be creative, playful, nurture your imagination and encourage creative growth. In the beginning of October I´ll invite you into my cozy home and studio in Aarhus, for an exclusive + intimate photography experience. This is a workshop that will transform your portrait work into high-end editorial images using simple, but effective strategies.

The workshop will enable you to take beautiful portraits of women with a limited amount of gear, using only available light and limited space. These are portraits you can set up anywhere - without needing a professional studio. You will also get a good understanding of light conditions and their effect on your portraits as well as the kind of moods different light conditions can create. 

Over the two days, we will work with models and professional stylists to explore and capture timeless + creative fine art portraits of women. You will learn how to create, shoot and edit beautiful photos and we will discuss the use of light, camera settings, scene selection, styled storytelling creation and finding your personal style.

I will walk you through my entire process from planning to executing ideas. I´ll show you how I select clothes, hair and make-up. How to set up the scene, how to mindfully communicate and make your subject feel comfortable during the shoot.

Editing and retouching is an important part of creating a beautiful magazine-worthy portrait. I will teach you my workflow from the image straight out of camera to the final photo, including how to color correct, work with presets, evoke a specific mood, remove unwanted objects and how to achieve flawless skin.

WhoThis workshop is for photographers of all levels - beginners, aspiring photographers, professionals and creative souls. From the amateur looking to capture beautiful photos and learn about creative portrait photography, to the creative professional wanting to grow a strong portfolio, and expand their career/business.  

Equipment: Bring a digital DSLR camera, 1-3 lenses and a laptop with Photoshop and Lightroom installed. It's not important that you know how to shoot in manual mode or RAW - you will get help with that during the workshop if needed. Good lens choices for portraits are 50mm, 85mm and/or a quality zoom lens. Christina will use the 50mm f/1.4 and the 24-72 f/2.8 zoom lens during the workshop.

Travel: Closest airports for international travel is, Aarhus and Billund. Aarhus airport have cheap flights from London and Copenhagen, so if you are coming from abroad this might be your best travel option. You can also fly to Copenhagen and then take the train from the airport to the center of Aarhus - it´s a three hour direct train ride. The workshop location is located about 4 hours drive from Hamburg, Germany. Feel free to contact me if you need more help in planning your trip: hello@christinagreve.com

Accommodation: I recommend booking yourself into one of the following hotels in Aarhus; Villa ProvenceHotel GuldsmedenHotel Royal or Hotel Ferdinand. The workshop location is just a 5 minute taxi drive from Aarhus city center. 

Cancellation policy: Due to logistics, the people and planning involved, this is a non refundable retreat. Please make sure you to have a valid travel insurance before booking.

I can´t wait to welcome you and show you everything I love about creative fine art portraiture!

With love and excitement, Christina
