A beautiful portrait can give us insight into the expression, personality and mood of the subject. The focus is usually on the face but context and background may be included.

Using natural light, this course offers the participant special understanding of professional portraiture.

Course Requirements: Participants need to bring a camera that can be set manually using ISO, shutter speed and aperture and/or be able to set a manual mode. A lens of approximately 50mm full frame is highly recommended.

Instructor: Juan Manuel Abellán graduated in advertising and completed his training as a photographer in Barcelona at the Institute of Design and Image where he worked with Luca Pagliari.

In London Juan Manuel worked in Advertising agencies (Saatchi & Saatchi, McCann-Ericksson and Grey Worldwide) and in Paris where he became the assistant of photographers such as Laure Vasconi, Xavier Lucchesi and Ariadna Bufi, among others. He also worked for Daylight Photo Studio.

He then collaborated with Tendance Floue and agency Magnum Photos. Juan Manuel currently lives and works in Paris as a freelance photographer.
