Never Work with Children or Animals – Lizzie Gilmour Q&A

April 30, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


NZIPP member Lizzie Gilmour takes this famous maxim from actor/comedian W.C. Fields and turns it on its head. Kids and animals can be hard enough to photograph on their own, but Lizzie manages to bring them together to create emotive and compelling portraits.

Join us on April 30 to learn how she does it! Lizzie’s talk will cover tips on how to get beautiful photos of children (and their pets), and how she uses a very simple and inexpensive single-light setup to achieve gorgeous results. Lizzie will also cover post-production and compositing – this is a talk you won’t want to miss.

Lizzie is a fine art, family and wedding photographer with a small rural studio in Oakura, Taranaki. Her businesses are Kowhai and Thistle (portraits), and The Velveteen Collective (weddings).

If you have a question that you’d like Lizzie to answer, please post it in this thread so she can be sure to answer it on the day for you.

Members can get the zoom link in the member group, or email info@nzipp.org.nz
