Sean’s famous photo sessions are just under 5 hours in length and provide a variety of skills needed to photograph beautiful structures and interiors. The day begins with an introductory presentation, where Sean uses his extensive technical experience to advise how to best capture the perfect shot. Lucky participants will then have the opportunity to take pictures of the interior using Sean’s top tips with their own camera.

Sean Conboy’s Basic Photographic Sessions on Monday 23 January and Monday 10 July will cover insider tips on how to improve your interior photography by using light to the best advantage; how to look for and find pictures in an indoor space and how to use the manual settings on your camera to help improve your pictures.

Sean Conboy’s Advanced Photographic Session on Monday 13 March will cover a full explanation of tilt and shift camera movements; how to use flash and LED lighting to help light interiors; a practical demo of an interior shoot; the chance to use professional flash lighting and tech camera with a Hasselblad 100mp digital back; how to achieve the best viewpoints and how to use the different focal lengths of a lens to make the most of your subject. Only eight places are available for this much sought-after course to allow more seasoned photographers the opportunity to talk one to one with a leading photographer in his field in a more focused gathering.

When asked what he enjoys so much about photographing The Grand, Sean said: “The Grand Theatre has one of the finest interiors in the country and the beauty about photographing this beautiful building is that there is so much detail - you can always find something new to photograph. These unique photographic sessions at The Grand offer people the opportunity to choose which part they wish to photograph…they may even capture something that has never been photographed before!”

    Stunning and vibrant pictures always make me happy. Recently, when searching for pictures for my project, I stumbled upon these cannabis leaf images. Having stock storage is a true help https://depositphotos.com/vectors/cannabis-leaf.html It's fantastic that I can discover the precise image I was hoping to see because of this.
