Upcoming Workshops

A willingness to share ideas and skills

Each themed day is design for photographers at all levels from beginners to professionals.  Led by Lorraine who is very friendly and approachable, whether helping with camera settings or suggesting poses for models.  New photographers are usually paired up with more experienced photographers to ensure everybody has a great day.  What I personally like is the relaxed environment, the etiquette of the attendees and a willingness to share ideas and skills

Making sure everyone is getting the best from their camera and advice given when needed

Lorraine is very imaginative with her photography, very fair with group shoots making sure everyone is getting the best from their camera and advice given when needed.  I would recommend going to any of Lorraine’s workshops. You won’t be disappointed

I have met some lovely people through the group shoots

I have attended key moments workshop group since it started back in January 2017, the group has gone from strength to strength.  Run by the lovely Lorraine, I have met some lovely people through the group shoots – all of whom are more than willing to provide help and support to an inexperienced photographer.  Coffee and biscuits are a bonus

Always such a warm welcome

I do makeup & model for the group, Lorraine is a fantastic event organiser she always does an amazing job at organising a shoot where so many photographers come to take beautiful photographs of whatever theme Lorraine has organised and set up.  Not only does she put so much hard work and dedication into settin up the shoots and pre planning, She is also a a very very good photographer as well as being a great person to work alongside with always such a warm welcome. Thanks for all your hard work Lorraine & all the other photographers, models and makeup artists who take part in making the shoots that little more special. TEAMWORK

Bringing likeminded creative’s together to capture those ‘key moments’

Had my 2nd shoot this week and loved it. The group is full of great people I have met and worked with so far. Lorraine has done a great job creating this group, bringing likeminded creative’s together to capture those ‘key moments’.
Loved the 1940s and Shibari shoot and hopefully look forward to meeting and working with you and others again soon

My first wedding workshop and was better than I expected

Attended a workshop today organised by Lorraine Hinks (Key Moments Photography Workshop Group) and Paul Husband.  Was my first wedding workshop and was better than I expected, the workshop was prepared and presented in a professional manner, no dull moments during the workshop, Paul and Lorraine explained what is involved in preparing a wedding shoot, what the requirements are to discuss with the bride and groom, how to work on location and the equipment to use during the shoot.
After the presentation, we worked with the models where both explained how to work with bride and groom, positioning the lights and camera settings. I can thank both of them enough for arranging this workshop, I learned a lot and to be honest I regret it didn’t continue for longer
I highly recommend any photographers regardless of level of experience to attend future workshops organized by Key Moment Photography Workshop group.
Thank you Lorraine and hope to have the availability from my end to attend future workshops or group shoots

I came away from the session feeling that I had learnt a lot

I recently attended my first KMP workshop organised by Lorraine Hinks.  I was a bit nervous as I had never done a photo shoot before.  However, I needn’t have worried as from the moment I got there I was made to feel welcome by everyone. The 4 hour workshop was superbly organised by Lorraine, who is an incredible person, very friendly and good fun and with a lot of knowledge.  She was always available to give me advice on things such as camera settings and I came away from the session feeling that I had learnt a lot and met some good people as well. I would strongly recommend the KMP workshops to photographers of every level. Thank you Lorraine – I will be back for more

Lorraine is a Godsend to beginners & those that lack confidence

I discovered this wonderful group a few years ago, and since then I have been on a number of Workshops and have enjoyed every single one.  I will continue to go on them as they are Informative, fun and also build up your network.
Lorraine is a Godsend to beginners & those that lack confidence, I have witnessed her guide individuals that have few camera skills to create superb images.
She has a Wonderful bank of stunning Models and Very talented Make up Artists.
When you go on one, You will surely become a regular like myself and so many others

Great organisation

Great dance photography workshop today.  Brilliant, friendly dancers who were a pleasure to work with, and great organisation from Lorraine.  Shame there wasn’t more time!

Always come away with great pictures

I have been to a few of the workshops, and always come away with great pictures.  Lorraine is a lovely person and very easy to get on with, nothing seems to much trouble for her.  She has a photographers eye and so knows the models and locations that will work.  Would recommend the workshops

Lorraine’s communications regarding the shoot (and even after) were absolutely spot on!

Lorraine hired me for an Art Nude Group shoot in Manchester for Key Moments Photography Workshop Group, and what a pleasure it was to be there. Lorraine’s communications regarding the shoot (and even after) were absolutely spot on.  I knew exactly what to expect from the shoot, and exactly what to take.
Lorraine is incredibly respectful, helping me with any flour and helping me to choose outfits throughout the shoot, as well as being on hand for all the other photographers, making sure that they all got some wonderful images and got the most out of their time slots. Lorraine clearly has a great relationship with all in the group; you could almost feel the respect for her oozing out from all of those in attendance.
All in all, Lorraine is organised, professional and incredibly respectful, but also a great character. I would certainly recommend Lorraine and her group, and would be honoured to work with her again.
Thank you so much, Lorraine!

I was over the moon!!

I attended the flour dance workshop on Sunday 14th July and was over the moon. Lorraine is a dream of a lady to work with. So much patience, understanding and willing you to go further by giving you ideas and helpful hints & Tips.
The 2 beautiful young ladies who were the dancers for the day were amazing.  They did everything they were asked and more.  If someone didn’t quite get the shot, they were happy to redo the scene until you got it perfect.
I cannot recommend Lorraine’s Workshops highly enough and will most definately be visiting again and again!!!
Most Definately a 5 Star workshop in Every aspect.  Thank You so much Lorraine & Your lovely young ladies for their professionalism and patience xxxx

Can’t wait to share more experiences

I have attended two workshops now and can not recommend highly enough. As a novice amateur still learning the controls the opportunities to work with such patient knowledgable people is fantastic.  Whilst really nervous as everyone seems so knowledgeable Lorraine is so kind and helpful. Thank you Lorraine and your models/dancers . I can not recommend highly enough and can’t wait to share more experiences
