Unique Workshops and Tours

Unique Workshops and Tours Photography Workshop

Throughout the year I regularly hold workshops (and even overseas tours) that are not advertised on this website. The reason for this is that I occasionally come up with ideas that are completely unique both in terms of their location and format that have not yet been thought of by other photographers.

One to One

One to One Photography Workshop

One-to-one wildlife and landscape photography workshops are suitable for those of all levels, from absolute beginner to the more advanced. Aside from the technical aspects of photography, I will go through the thought process behind making creative images and how we, as photographers, break down a scene to make sense out of nature’s ‘chaos’. In short, to open your mind to the creative possibilities that abound when recording the natural world and for you to return home with visually stunning images.

One to One for Beginners

One to One for Beginners Photography Workshop

Want to get to grips with using your digital compact or SLR camera? Ever wondered what all those buttons and symbols mean? What is ISO and how does it work? Can I use flash during the day or only at night and what picture quality setting should I use? These are all questions we ask ourselves when we first start using a camera but the manual's so thick and often difficult to understand that we just leave the camera on Programme setting.

Summer Flowers Photo Walk

Summer Flowers Photo Walk Photography Workshop

Emphasis on this workshop will be given to producing creative images of flowers by thoughtful consideration of viewpoint and the subject’s relationship with foreground and background elements. Although such things as lens selection and exposure will be covered, the intention of this workshop is to help you see the potential of a subject and produce something a little out of the ordinary that will make your images stand out from the crowd.

Macro and Creative Close-Ups

Friday 6th May 2016

Macro and Creative Close-Ups Photography Workshop

Ever since I first picked up a camera some 30 years ago, close-up photography has fascinated me. To record the world around me that many would, idly, walk by and take very little notice of. It’s only when you get down and look really closely that you can fully appreciate the breathtaking beauty of, say, a ladybird, the eye of a dragonfly or, simply, the stamens of a wood anemone.
