behind the scenes at a newborn workshop with pennycress photography

Newborn Photography Workshops

Are you a professional photographer who has perhaps given posed newborn photography a go and not had much success? Or perhaps you are an enthusiastic amateur who is looking to take up newborn photography professionally. One of my training days might be just what you are looking for…..

Do you want to know the top tips and tricks for getting sleepy, posable babies and how to carry out each pose safely? Perhaps you would like help with lighting or editing images sensitively and naturally?

I can also offer insights into marketing a newborn photography business in the UK, business planning and well, basically if I know it I am happy to share it!

My training days have been described as “The perfect first step on the ladder” and I have helped many photographers get their photography businesses off the ground, not only through boosting confidence in posing but also by offering genuine honest business advice on what works and what doesn’t in my own experience!

There is a strong emphasis on safety at all training sessions and I am passionate about raising standards in newborn photography as far as baby safety is concerned. I now have a SiB (stand in baby training tool) available too in addition to a newborn at each training session. Meaning you get great, safe hands on practice as much as you need on the day- a fantastic addition to the course.

WHY TRAIN WITH PENNYCRESS?

I  have been specialising in newborns for over 8 years now, and have photographed in excess of 700 babies. In addition, I come from a teaching/training background and since 2011 I have trained just over 140 professional photographers from all over the world, in the safe posing and photographing of newborns. I also have a degree in Business & Marketing so often include that in training if required.

My training sessions are tailored to meet the needs of the attendees which is possible as the groups are so small with up to only 3 trainees. 

Ongoing support is provided through an online community forum just for Pennycress trainees and you are welcome to shadow a newborn session at my studio if you wish.

The cost  for a space on a 1:3 workshop day is just £325. The fee includes a light lunch, snacks and drinks throughout.  The full fee is payable at time of booking to secure your space and spaces are offered on a first come first served basis.

CURRENT AVAILABILITY:

TUESDAY 5th DECEMBER – SOLD OUT!

SATURDAY 20th JANUARY – 3 Spaces

Sorry I do not offer training to those working within 40 miles of NR18. Sessions are held at my studio in Wymondham, Norfolk and travel and accommodation details will be shared at time of booking.

Highly Recommend!

"My training day with Vicki was so helpful, especially as a complete beginner. She was so calm and thorough, she's a great teacher and was happy to answer endless questions. Highly recommend her for newborn training!" Katie Spicer

So Helpful & Full of Great Advice!

I had a one to one with Vicki and really did enjoy the day. As a complete newbie to newborn photography I found Vicki’s workshop to be so very helpful, full of great information and advice and I certainly did take a whole new skill away with me. Thank you Vicki! Donna Maynard

An Excellent Day!

“I was very nervous about the training day as I felt out of my comfort zone but Vicki soon put me at ease and the whole day was enjoyable, I learned so much. It was a great opportunity to see how Newborn babies are posed safely and with such patience!  Following the training I left my full time job to embark in a new career as a photographer. I fully recommend Vicki’s training to anyone considering photographing newborn babies, she is excellent!” Mandy Jackson
