Welcome... . . . to our first edition of iQ, we hope you like it. It will keep you up to date with our course details, any new courses, some of our latest work and bits and pieces from the photographic world in general. You are receiving this because you have either attended one of our courses or expressed an interest in receiving information from us. To reassure you... we do not share our mailing list with anyone, so all those car insurance emails you probably get haven’t come via us. We will be publishing a 'newsletter' quarterly. We hope you like it, but if you want to unsubscribe, just drop us an email.

News... The big news is that things are changing here at Hilary Shedel Photography.  As our shooting committments have increased and we find ourselves away from the Ferrers Centre more and more we have decided to concentrate our energies in the studio and will therefore be closing

the courtyard gallery at the end of Sunday 25 July. Even though we won’t be a visual presence in the courtyard,  but beavering away upstairs in our studio, we would still like to see you at The Ferrers Centre.

We will be holding a series of Open Days in the studio when you can drop in, have a coffee with us and 'chew the cud'. Over the years we have watched many of you develop your photographic skills with us and want to continue supporting you. Keep your eye on www.shedelphotocourse.com to find out when our first open weekend will be.

one Dance place Special Courses l eft We will be holding an expanding series of Dance Special Courses. These are aimed at students who have undertaken our other Dance Courses and want to expand their portfolio of dance and movement work. Sometimes these courses will be based around a specific lighting technique, occasionally they may be on location but often they will give you the opportunity to capture a special type of dance, and that is what the summer programme is aimed at.

Dance Special - Ted

Saturday 10 July 2010 - Male classical dancer

Ted trained at the Royal Swedish Ballet School and is also a skilled acrobat, aerialist, gymnast, ice and roller skater! This course will mainly use his dancing skills so don't expect an ice rink installed in the studio!

images - dancer's own

Cost: ÂŁ150

Photographers under attack... ...and that goes for anyone, not just paparazzi news hounds. The news often has pieces about photographers being detained by the police for no good reason citing Section 44 anti-terrorist laws. Don’t think that this won’t happen to you as it could – if it can happen Accrington it can happen where you live. You could be taking some record shots of a local event, or just snapping the sites of London……. You do need to be aware of your rights and the limit of police rights. Therefore we recommend you to have a look at the website: www.photographernotaterrorist.org. This useful campaigning site has a bust card, which we suggest you download and keep a copy in your camera bag. All this may seem far-fetched, but forewarned is forearmed.


A Very Special Dance Special Flamenco Dancer Noemi Saturday 28 August 2010 Saturday 18 September 2010

We have managed to secure for not one, but two 'Dance Special' days with Noemi while she is in the UK. Noemi is an extraordinary flamenco dancer who brings amazing passion to the dance. We are running two identical days so that more of you will get the chance to photograph Noemi and take away some fantastic images. Cost ÂŁ150 per day

Dance Special - A Duet of Dancers

For the first time we will have two dancers working together in the studio - David and Shahla. This will give you the chance to capture lifts and lots more. If the weather is good we might do some shots outside working with location flash units.

Sunday 22nd August. Cost ÂŁ200 Please note. These courses are only open to those who have already taken at least one Dance Photography course with us. Not for beginners!

Barrow Hill Shoot Hilary recently undertook a personal shoot at the fabulous Barrow Hill Roundhouse, near Chesterfield. The roundhouse is a charitable trust maintaining and rebuilding locomotives from the past within a fully working roundhouse, with functioning turntable. We had been eying up this as a potential location for a while, and managed to pull all the logistics together, i.e. we got the necessary permissions; reccie’d the site and booked Sarah. Sarah is the classical ballerina who has featured in a couple of recent shoots. All this was done working around the lovely freezing winter. As luck would have it, we had a sunny day, but inside the roundhouse it was actually far colder than outside! (-4 in fact) Poor Sarah had to be packed with fleeces, duvets and hot water bottles in between shots, so that she could still be flexible enough to get into the ballet moves we needed. A lot of this shoot is still being worked on, but we thought you’d like to see one of the results.

A bird’s eye view...

Shedel

In between the increasing number of days at the cricket, Steve is squeezing in a few early mornings of bird photography and here are a few recent images. He has just come back from a week in Bulgaria devoted to bird photography. Its not often you get to sit next to a Bee-eater colony and watch the cacophony of their pairing rituals. And you know Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers: tiny, elusive and always at the top of 50ft trees? In Bulgaria a pair were feeding young in a garden gate post 5ft off the ground and weren't in the least bothered by having a lens pointed at them, plus Rollers and Hoopoes. Due to the number of requests from our regular students he is currently sorting out a bird of prey day course when you will be able to get images of birds of prey in a natural habitat, and have a go at some flight photography. Keep your eye on the website for details. Image Quarterly | Summer 2010


Gift Vouchers We’d like to use this opportunity to mention our gift vouchers. These make great presents for people, whether for specific courses or a one to one session. The giver doesn't need to know exactly what course the recipient would like. We always talk through the sessions with the voucher holder to make sure they are getting exactly what they want. This can be a standard course, a bespoke one to one session or various other options. These have been used for a mentored portrait shoot, a location reccie and a session on shooting jewellery. The choice is yours. We can also provide gift vouchers with no value indicated, but showing "with best wishes" if you prefer. Vouchers come as a printed certificate in a greetings card. You can either purchase via www.shedelphotocourse.com under the 'Gift Voucher' heading, or call us directly. If you are buying a voucher as a surprise present we are use to discretion & subterfuge! We are always happy to speak to you.
