BREAKOUT DESCRIPTION

Kirsty Larmour is a lifestyle photographer who focuses on telling the stories of the lives of her clients and her own children as she travels the world. She suffers from extreme wanderlust and loves to capture the essence of a place wherever she goes.

In this Breakout she’ll take you through how she looks for great light and compositions no matter who she’s photographing, or where she is, and how she captures emotion and environment to take the viewer right into that moment in time. She’ll share through her thought process in weighing up a scene so that she can be present in these moments, wherever in the world they are. She will guide you through her gear and camera setting choices and how they help her to make intuitive decisions when taking photos. She’ll talk you through how she engages with and encourages her subjects to capture authentic moments and carefree wonder in her images. The sections are broken down into bite sized chunks so that you can slowly work through all the different elements that combine to make compelling and truthful images. Kirsty’s Breakout is full of inspiring imagery from her travels and her client sessions, and she will help you to believe in your own ability to capture the authentic moments in your life anywhere.

In the videos you’ll get a chance to see how Kirsty works as she talks through what she was seeing and doing whilst making photos.

SNEAK PEEK

ABOUT THE PRESENTER

Kirsty Larmour is a British lifestyle photographer based out of Abu Dhabi in the UAE. She is a nomad at heart and can be found documenting both her clients’ lives, and her own family when they are at home in the Middle East and further afield while globe trotting through places from Uzbekistan to Cambodia, and many lands in between. Her photography often involves taking pictures of her own daughters’ backs as they adventure through life (and temples, souks and rice paddies or over sand dunes). Kirsty’s approach to photography is to be present in real life moments and capture them with a little sparkle on top fueled by her obsession with pretty light.

    Kirsty’s ‘Photography on the Fly’ BO is not only a fantastic learning tool, it’s seriously inspiring and captivating. I live in the UAE also and I can assure you there is a uniqueness to the way Kirsty sees this part of the world and the stories she tells. And I love that. Kirsty encourages us to look at the world in our own way, tell the story we see but also feel, smell, taste and breathe in whether its in the sands of the Middle East, the chilly North of England, spice infused India, urban America or well pretty much anywhere. Her videos are honest and relatable, and her PDF is jam packed with incredible images and hundreds of helpful hints and tips. I can’t recommend this BO enough for value for money but beware it may well get those feet itching….

    Kristys BreakOut Photography On The FLy is the perfect creative boon –encouraging me to really focus on the type of photography I most want to master–the ability to see and capture lifes in-the-moment experiences. To quickly and naturally freeze in time, through photography, all the creative and wonderful experiences (large and small) we experience in our daily lives.

    Very good BO going through so many subjects. This breakout made me feel that not is always perfect but it is normal! Love all the vidéos. Thanks

  • Taking Kirsty’s BO was like having a free ticket to Dubai with her by your side as you dive into the world of Travel Photography. Why wasn’t this around for me when I started my journey?
    Travel as a genre is a tad misleading. It is actually all encompassing and teaches on several different aspects of shooting, including being very quick at it. This is why this BO is for everyone. Personally, I travel with more gear, but find Kristy’s approach so refreshing that I might revisit a few things regarding my travel setup. I appreciate the minimalistic way she approaches her adventures.

    A lot of times I feel I over analyze things. I like her 10 seconds rule to set the image and move on. Kirsty is spot on with how she works with people, both clients and during her excursions. I absolutely LOVE how she is giving her children such an amazing education on the road and documenting it through her work. What I would have given to go back in time and capture those moments with my kids.

    Kirsty emphasizes that travel photography encompasses much more than the landscape variety. Incredible visual stories are missed if you focus only on landscapes. I enjoy following Kirsty’s adventures because she captures authentic stories from multiple visual and emotional angles.

    The last take away I gleaned from Kirsty’s BO is that I can apply similar approaches to capturing images of my children, which are now young adults. All people, from young to old, represent wonderful opportunities for photographic storytelling.

    There are endless nuggets of awesomeness throughout “Photography on the Fly”!

    Thanks so much, Kirsty, for sharing so how you make such wonderful images on the fly!

  • Kirsty’s travels have captured my attention now for years! The way that she captures her children all over the world will stop you in your tracks. Not all of us will be able to travel the world like she does but all of us can capture our children in our everyday environment with a little more thought and come away with hugely different photos. I LOVED seeing some familiar pictures but hearing the thought process behind them as well as descriptions of why they work (whether it be lighting, composition, color, etc.) It was also extremely interesting to hear what gear she uses and her thoughts on editing on the fly. I would HIGHLY recommend this course whether you will be traveling or just traveling around your home town. You are sure to take something away whether you are a seasoned pro or new to the art. I found myself mesmerized by the pictures and envisioning what I want to do when I visit Rio in a few short months. This breakouts has been inspirational.
