When I achieved my first Fellowship in 2007, I realised that its was time for me to give something back to the industry that I loved.
I started mentoring and training some wonderful photographers in a range of skills, from studio lighting to posing and in gaining qualifications with many of the leading professional photographic bodies.
I have been included on judging panels for qualifications from Licencietship through to Fellowship, and also judged both regional and international print competitions.
My in depth knowledge of the processes and their requirements is great.
Each photographer that I have encouraged and mentored, have had their own skills and weaknesses, that in turn I am able to develop and nurture, into a more confident and successful image maker.
In 2013 I was commissioned by Crowood Press to write a book entitled Portrait Photography- Art and Techniques, it was a real labour of love and something that I am proud to have managed to complete! (it was tough going at time!). If you are learning the craft of portrait photography, this is the book for you! Receive a signed copy, with a personalised message for only £20!
Most photographers approach me to fine tune their skills, more specifically, lighting, composition and posing. And most importantly developing a unique and distinctive style in their work.
I offer various options for the development of your photographic journey, from weekend workshops, through to 1-1 ongoing mentoring.
Mentoring is on a 1:1 basis and is tailored to suit each individual and their particular needs, it can be arranged at my office or if more beneficial at a location near you. (many will chose for me to come to their studios, so that I am able to see actual working practices, and how these may be developed)
They can be one off intensive days or an ongoing programme of development depending on each photographers needs and requirements.
