Boudoir Photography Training

Are you an established photographer looking to add Boudoir to your portfolio or already a Boudoir Photographer looking to improve? Have you thought about booking a 1-2-1?

A little about me... I have been a Professional Photographer for over 10 years. I have won multiple national awards, had over 55 international publications including front covers and 4 times been a finalist in Portrait of the Year. I am proud to have built one of the UK's leading Boudoir brands that has clients fly in from around the world to shoot with me. I have been a Photography Tutor for 9 years, selling out over 20 workshops every year.

As well as running Belle Privé Photography, I also run Emma Finch Photography which is predominantly on location, natural light photography specialising in Family, Lifestyle and Branding.

I also co-own Photography Session Days, teaching Portrait Photography and organising portfolio building events for photographers. Working in unique locations around the UK, we bring the finest models and performers together to create award winning images for photographers' portfolios.

Emma made the complex very easy and was a pleasure to work with... highly recommended!
