Every year I run a few spectacular workshops abroad somewhere in the sun and always at visually inspiring locations. This year it was the turn of southern Spain and the area around Cartegena. We ran a similar workshop in 2011 and centered that event around an abandoned monastery. This year we used other abandoned locations including a mineral extraction factory, a military barracks, and mine buildings. Here are a selection of my pictures and the settings I used to create them.
 

Lighting kit per group:

 
2x Canon 580 EX2 Speedlights, 1x Nikon SB900 Speedlight, Lovegrove Gemini bracket, 2 Lastolite Jupiter stands, Pocket Wizard triggers and receivers. A silver umbrella, a reflector or Lastolite Ezybox. All the kit needed was supplied by us or shared among the delegates. The systems were simple and very effective.
 
Models: Natalia Warner and Olivia Ward
 
Local fixer: Mickie Imre
 
My camera kit: Fujifilm X-Pro1, 60mm, 35mm and 18mm lenses, Gitzo 3551 monopod, RRS ball head and L-Plate with grip. All Speedlights were in manual mode and triggered using the standard (non control TL) signals.
 
My fellow tutor on this event was Martin Hill. Martin is a top pro photographer and an all round great bloke. Between us we reccied the locations, surveyed the risks, organised the local support and made it happen…..
