The Deal

Adding a touch of gloss to resumes or modelling portfolios, a professional shoot at the creative hub of the Custard Factory will use software and soft lighting to make clients look their best. Against a range of movie set or green screen backdrops, guests will pout and pose their way through an hour and a half's session. If required, a professional make-up artist can make faces sparkle for a small supplement. After the shoot, the photographer will touch up the best picture using computer software, until it is ready to be mounted on three 5" x 7" prints. Guests will then be free to spend their £50 voucher on additional prints and frames at the online store.

Customer Reviews

I had a pleasant experience on the phone when I needed further information. Gemma was really lovely and helpful.

Brilliant! The trainer (Simon Davies) was a seasoned-pro, who really knew his profession. Simon made you feel welcome and comfortable, and was supportive throughout all activities. The attendees were varied - most were not from an acting background so there was a variety of end use for these newly acquired skills, e.g. Facebook videos, training videos, etc.; some were going into a career area in presenting, and some were now considering it, whereas they attended with different goals in mind. However you wish to use these skills this is definitely a course to give you confidence in your abilities and how you are perceived on camera. Thank you, Simon!
