Photography Workshops: An Easy Guide
Go here to find information on my new photographic workshops, including my fast-track 1-2-1 tuition. Discover how and why I can teach you to ‘think like a photographer’ and create great images based on your ‘intention’.
My unique teaching method includes a guide to understanding the basics of photography by asking yourself some simple questions about what you ‘intend’ the image to look like, before you begin.
Understanding this allows you to make simple changes to your camera based on the outcome you are aiming for, rather than trying to remember tons of complicated technical information.
Learn how to implement a simple step-by-step checklist. Unlock the secrets of reviewing images correctly, to help achieve consistent exposures and enhance your skills and knowledge.
Photography Services Background
I have been a professional photographer for over twenty years, providing photography, short promotional films, and educational workshops for schools, businesses, charities and marketing agencies.
I have gained an excellent reputation for delivering clear instruction, in plain English, with a minimum of technical jargon. Sessions are short, with an emphasis on practical, hands-on advice. Coffee, and lots of fun are included free of charge.
My work has been published in magazines, and commissioned by corporate organisations, local businesses and agencies.
Originally based in London, I now work from Studio 32 in Edinburgh, and collaborate with a great group of creative film-makers, musicians, 3D visual artists, motion graphics experts and artisans.
