Starting in January 2012, Low Key Studio will be running various workshops intended to help aspiring photographers learn new skills and get more acquainted with their cameras. The classes are very hands-on and we keep the number of students per class to a minimum to ensure that everyone gets the attention they need. Exceptional photos from students will also be posted on the blog!

All of the workshops that take place in-studio will feature a professional fashion model to pose for shots, making this a great opportunity to build portfolios with a professional photographer looking over your shoulder and offering constructive feedback. Email Christoph at christoph@lowkeystudio.com to register for a workshop or get more details.

With Christmas around the corner, this could make an excellent gift to the aspiring photographer on your list!
