"I just wanted to let you know that I had an amazing time yesterday. You were very patient and informative and I feel much more confident about my camera and taking better pictures.The workshop was a birthday present from a dear friend and I will be giving her the most positive feedback and thanks, which is very much down to your expertise and warm teaching manner. The lunch was a lovely bonus."
WHAT MAKES THESE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS DIFFERENT?
"I've been addicted to photography and fascinated by composition and capturing light in the wild since I picked up a Canon A1 as a child. By joining one of my workshops, I hope to be able to share my enthusiasm and passion for picture-taking with you.
There are lots of wonderful photographers out there offering workshops and I really appreciate you taking the time to consider one of mine. I'm also aware that catching the photography bug is not without its considerable expense! If you're like me, you will spend a huge amount of time and thought before investing in a new camera or lens. Photography workshops are no different."
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
You will be on your feet for much of the day, so please bring good footwear. Layered clothing is best for changeable weather, while wellies and waterproofs are also a good idea. You don't need to bring any food or drink as these will be provided.
WHAT CAMERA GEAR DO I NEED?
A DSLR or mirrorless camera is ideal, along with a tripod and lens(es) covering wide-angle to mid-telephoto. A polariser, neutral density and graduated filter are useful, while handy accessories include a remote release, spare batteries, memory cards and cleaning cloth.
