Saraya Cortaville

Photography Mentoring, One to One Training and Workshops

Hello! I am Saraya an award winning photography mentor and tutor based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

Having been a photographer for over twenty years I have expert knowledge of many genres of photography - studio, lifestyle, travel and working with children. I run  photography workshops in these genres throughout the year.

I have judged nationally and internationally for many of the large photographic bodies and as such I am fully aware of the various criteria that are required for passing qualifications.

For aspiring and professional photographers I run bespoke mentoring and training workshops to develop and inspire.

From mini mentoring sessions great for beginners through to year long bespoke photography training programmes for more experienced photographers. 

I look forward to hearing from you!

    Travel Photography

    I have been lucky enough to travel all over the world as a photographer,  working for various NGO’s such as Raleigh International, ICS and The Gurkha Welfare Trust in countries such as Tanzania, Nepal and Nicaragua, documenting the wonderful work that these charities undertake in very rural areas of these countries.
