Introduction to Portraits with Rotolight
Since taking on this brand last year, staff at Clifton Cameras have enjoyed demonstrating and using Rotolights range of products. To show you why we feel Rotolight lighting products are so good we have arranged for Darren Fellows from Rotolight to host a 'Introduction to Portraits' workshop.

This workshop is for anyone interested in portrait photography, whether you are just starting to explore this genre, looking at a suitable portable lighting system or wanting to understand how to use Rotolight products, this is a great opportunity to not miss.
What will happen during the workshop?
This workshop will give you a chance to see how different lighting setups can work for you when shooting portraits, as well as trying out Rotolight's fantastic range of lighting products.

Who is the Photographer?
I'm Darren from Uxbridge, I'm a self taught Photographer, I first picked up a camera when I decided to stop taking part in Motorsport due to a few broken bones but couldn't get away from the tracks and the excitement!
I decided to get a camera and start documenting 4 years ago what I saw in pictures. Since then I have photographed all over the world including Australia, Belgium, Germany, Singapore, Spain and all over the UK. Along my journey I have shot motorsport to weddings and everything in between. 18 months ago I joined Rotolight as a Technical Advisor after using the lights personally and saw a value in how the products worked. Since joining Rotolight, I have been in the privileged position to join my passion with work.
