Photography workshops provide the perfect solution when looking for inspiration and encouragement in your photography. Spending time in the landscape with like minded people is a great way to develop your craft. I've been running workshops successfully for many years and have gained a huge amount of experience that enables me to assist as much or as little as you require. My experience of working with all kinds of different folk, coupled with my local knowledge of the areas that we frequently visit ensures a productive session.

I run a range of photography courses and workshops from half day trips in the North East and North Yorkshire to multi day photography holidays throughout the UK and Europe. 

Half day photography courses are perfect for those who would like to explore photography locations with like minded people in a relaxed way. The walking is generally not too strenuous and the time shooting is taken at a steady place. Refreshment breaks are factored in, and we are never far away from conveniences. Locations are all within an hour of Teesside, meaning less time travelling in our comfortable, spacious minibus. 

You will be given tips and ideas on how to make the best from the conditions and we will be on hand to offer guidance. These sessions last between 4 and 5 hours, including travelling time, depending on location. 

Full day photography courses are more intensive, lasting around 8 hours and focusing on specific areas of your photography. This could be filter work, long exposures, movement and composition amongst others. You will be outdoors for longer periods and there will likely be more walking involved. We will break for warm food where possible and snacks/water are provided. Full day workshops can be supremely fulfilling for those looking for an action packed day behind the lens. 

Our beginners photography courses are the perfect way to begin learning all about photography.

Multi day trips in the UK and abroad range from single night stays in places such as London or the Lake Distrct, to 4 night photography breaks in locations such as Venice, Budapest and Arctic Finland. These trips are great for spending extended time focusing on your photography, surrounded by fellow enthusiasts. Throughout your time we will provide you with inspiration and photography challenges to assist in your development. We'll have a lot of fun too!

1-2-1 tuition is also available as practical, outdoor photography or editing with Lightroom/Photoshop. Over the years I have found that the best approach is to discuss your needs in detail over the phone before putting a plan together. Timings, dates and content can be adapted to suit your individual requirements. 

We have a proud record of clients joining me on more than one workshop (many return time and time again). Whichever way you go, you can be assured of a professional and personal service.
