Beyond the Selfie

By Kevin Scarlet

Are you tired of the Selfie? You know, the distorted image of the face too close to the camera and the long arm stretching to the frame? So are we!

Fortunately, help is at hand!

In this experimental, practical workshop we'll explore techniques and tricks to make better portraits. Perhaps we'll make mistakes along the way, but we will learn from them and so improve our ability and knowledge of some alternative ways to get better and more interesting portraits of yourself and others.

This workshop is aimed at beginners or casual photographers who want to improve the quality and variety of the photos that they take at home and on holiday. We will be shooting mostly in automatic mode with our compact camera’s or smartphones. The only technical thing that is demanded is that you fully charge your battery and you know how to display the pictures you take on the screen (this should be set to continuous or no time-out, check your manual how to turn off this energy saving function) the cameras/smartphone should have enough free memory space as we'll be taking a lot of pictures.


  1. This workshop is limited to 18 participants.

  2. This will be a walking workshop in central Brussels. We'll start somewhere in the centre (near the Royal Park or Grand Place) and finish at a pub, taking photos along the way. The actual starting point will be dependent upon the weather forecast and will be announced in the reminder email and on the web site on Monday, 26 May

About Kevin Scarlett

Kevin comes from a visually creative background and has run his own graphic design business in Brussels for almost 20 years. Growing frustrated with pencils and paint, he could never define his own style but almost by accident he found an outlet in photography that fulfilled his creative endeavour. After taking a couple of photography workshops in India and Turkey recently, his love for the medium has increased even more, and is at a stage now were he would like to share some of the tips that have helped him along the way and made him a better photographer.
