Photography Workshops

Practical full day Photography Workshops, for complete beginners to those wanting to progress to the next level

Photography Training Workshops

"Learn as if you were to live forever"

Mahatma Gahndi

I have been running workshops and training days for the last 10 years, inspiring and motivating the next generation of aspiring photographers.

Both days are practical and hands on, with advice and guidance throughout the day.

The mornings sessions will cover the technicalities and theory of photography.

The afternoons will be fully practical, with 2-3 hours of guided shooting, we then return to the studio for image critique and some editing.

The workshops are a great starting point leading towards further mentoring or one to one personal training.
