Why my workshops? – Creating good images involves good lighting – always set up by myself – and teamwork with our model, whereas creating amazing images needs something more, it’s this ‘extra’ that sets my workshops apart – that key ingredient for me is emotional content. I’m happy to share my passion for this subject and my 40 years experience as a pro photographer, with all who attend my workshops. Crafting an emotional story with your model is something most people can learn if they want to, it’s something I can demonstrate and guide you through – as much or as little as you want!
Enjoying your photography is key! – Our aim is to provide you with an enjoyable and rewarding event! Whether it’s providing you with the tools to do your own thing – or a full-on tutorial workshop, it’s up to you to decide how much input you want from me, and how much you input yourself on the day, we welcome ideas and suggestions!
I am a retired photographer with over 40 years of professional experience, now running workshops twice a month for my love of photography – specifically portraiture! This enables me to pass on some knowledge, still be involved in photography and keep costs down! Photography means different things to different people, for some it’s a hobby, a means to escape, some have more competitive goals and for others it provides an income. There is no ‘right’ way to view photography, it’s a personal thing, its whatever it means to each of us in our own way. For me photography is my passion, I shoot for myself and the model, I don’t care what other people think.
“Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field.” Peter Adams
“A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. It is, in a word, effective.” Irving Penn
“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” Ansel Adams
