Spring Fashion 


15th May 2016

The event

Withamside House was purpose built for photoshots and styled by one of the best hosts in the business, Di Ablewhite. Di ensures that every detail in the house is perfect to ensure you have the very best backdrops to your images. Withamside House is set on beautiful grounds with a Mediterranean style garden area in one corner of grounds. The rest of the grounds are an immaculate English style gardens, with a fully dressed summer house all set right on the riverside.

You will have the opportunity to shoot 3 models individually throughout the day in small groups of just 4 photographers per group. Our professional models will be styled as the title suggests in spring fashion, which is perfectly matched for our location.

The day starts with a meet and greet over refreshments, meet the Portfolio Builder Day support team as groups are assigned and we run through the schedule of the day. We then have a full tour of the venue with international trainer, Andrew Appleton. Andrew will give a short lighting demonstration to help get those creative juices flowing and then you’re off with your group to scope out your shooting locations. Our first shoot is followed by a buffet lunch and refreshments, and then we’re in to shoot 2 and 3. We wrap up the day with a short debrief and cake!
