Welcome to our Online Course offers: 


with Iris Valentina


If you feel inspired by portraits that go beyond the surface, this class is for you. It will leave you motivated and more competent in creating beautiful soulful portraits.

A portrait comes to life when you pour your heart into the creation process. You can see your work as a reflection of your state of being as photographer. Instructor Iris Valentina has a distinct approach to portraiture where awareness is a key element. 


The class will meet on Wednesday, over a 7 week period, beginning January 27TH and ending on March 10TH. The course has 6 sessions.

Every week will encompass a different theme. We will explore your artistic vision, light setups, posing, styling and how to connect with your model. We will lightly touch retouching too. There will we demonstrations, lectures and exercises. 


In every meeting there is also time for critique of your images to help you grow and develop your skills. Your level will be your starting point and Iris will give you feedback that will help you take the next step. 


You are encouraged to shoot new work during this course, since this will aide your development most. When this is not possible, you may show old work. You can use natural day light or studio strobes and models of your own choice. 


With weekly assignments you will bring into practice what is learned during the meetings. It is a magical moment when you connect with your inner creative power and create portraits with joy. This course will inspire you to photograph with mind, body and soul. 

Iris is also teaching the workshop Soulful Portraits at our creative center SAGA 25-30 May, where you get to elevate your portrait skills even further. We will use local models for this class.
