ACADEMY

TRAINING, WORKSHOPS & MENTORING

Russ Jackson Academy was founded to empower photographers to create beautiful images & learn to do so while running a successful studio.

Russ Jackson Photography offers training to photographers of all levels. Russ has previously hosted masterclasses for Newborn Photography Ltd and at the annual Newborn Baby Show in 2015. Russ also was a speaker at the 2016 international Baby Summit in Atlanta and the Baby Summit 2017 in Brisbane Australia. Russ was also the main speaker at the FHOX photographic symposium 2016 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. 

Ongoing training is a must for all newborn photographers, especially those who are looking at starting a career in newborn photography. Our newborn portfolio would not be where it is today without the thousands of pounds we have invested in training over the years.

Newborn photography is very rewarding and can be a very lucrative business, however it is completely different to any other from of portrait photography and is very specialised. We can teach you what is needed to help you succeed. Our workshops and mentoring days are very relaxed with small group sizes to ensure a great learning experience. 

Our one day posing workshops and two day intensive workshops cater for a maximum of 6 photographers creating a much more relaxed learning environment and ensures you get the most out of the day. 

Personal mentoring (1:1) days cater to your specific needs no matter where you are in your photographic journey. Whether its learning how to master your DSLR or how to creatively light newborns with flash, we can work out a day that gives you the maximum return on your investment.  

On both group workshops and personal mentoring days we will have two models attend so there will be plenty of opportunities to photograph babies with Russ's guidence. 

We also cover many aspects about running your own business sucessfully. From marketing and pricing to developing your own style and brand, Russ will cover some key aspects that need to be understood in order to run a thriving photography business.
