Take a deep dive into the intriguing domain of night photography with our Cinematic Night Portraiture workshop. This course is meticulously designed to help you understand and navigate the complexities of capturing distinctive portraits under starlit skies, leveraging the unique aesthetic of film cameras and cinefilm.
This workshop emphasises practical, hands-on learning, starting with a thorough understanding of night-time exposure and moving towards the art of composing compelling portraits. The curriculum is comprehensive, designed to build on your skills and knowledge gradually.

James Harber is a British born photographer with a passion for dark and moody scenery, and inspired by the classic renaissance period mixed with the recent trend of cyberpunk. He’s been interested in photography from a young age, inspired by his father who would take his 35mm camera everywhere they went. Since then, he has been obsessed with capturing nature and cityscapes, and set up his own wedding photography business in 2017.
James got back into film in 2019, and since then has loved the dedication, finality, and creativity that film provides to photographers, as well as the up and down journeys of understanding and learning from technical mistakes. He loves to make things simple and easy to understand so that photography can be accessible for everyone.
James finds photography as a great way of storytelling and creating scenarios with the incredible night life that many cities have that are often unseen.
