An Exciting, Practical & Inspiring Way to Learn Photography 

Do you want to feel more in control of your camera? Maybe you'd like to wow people with your holiday pictures or family photos?

Whether you're into wildlife, outdoors, street, travel or want to take better photos of your family, a Walking Photography Lesson offers a practical and fun way to learn!

Whatever stage you are at and whatever equipment you use, I'd love to help you get the best out of your camera.

My practical photography lessons are delivered in a relaxed and inspiring environment designed to leave you feeling more confident and more in control of your camera. Feeling fresh and primed to go out and take some awesome photographs!

As a professional photographer with over ten years of experience, I've learnt to know cameras inside out. Working with a variety of clients from magazines to corporations like M&S I've had to hone and demonstrate a wide range of photography skills and techniques. From portraits to wildlife what I love best is capturing a real moment that captures peoples' imaginations. 

With recent awards and nominations in photographic competitions like International Garden Photographer of the Year, Royal Photographic Society's International Print Awards, British Wildlife Photography Awards and several other prestigious prizes, I also know what it takes to create unique & exceptional photos. 

I love sharing my knowledge and experience with people like you and always leave each lesson feeling as inspired as the student! I always make my lessons as practical and enjoyable as possible, because it's the best way to learn!

“I had such a wonderful day with Rich after receiving a full day’s lesson as a gift from my daughter. He was so helpful on our walk and later with Lightroom. I learned a lot and plan to attend some of his future events.” - Google Reviews 5*

Can I bring children?

From an early age, photography has played such a key role in my life. As part of my desire to champion photography to young people I offer free places for under 16s when accompanied by a paying adult

What if the weather forecast is bad?

You may be surprised just how many bad forecasts result in beautiful days - it happens a lot!

Walking Photography will always try and proceed with a planned photo walk. If extreme weather conditions or severe accessibility issues arise, then the walk date will rearranged for a convenient date. 

What if the weather is bad? 

It is surprisingly rare to have an event that is completely marred by the weather. With a deep to commitment to offering fun and enjoyable photo walks and workshops, if the event is judged to have been ruined by the weather participants will be given a 50% discount voucher off a future Photo Walk workshop up to the same value. 

Can I bring my camera phone or tablet?

Yes! We welcome camera phone and tablet walkers on most photo walks. There are some events like Get a Grip Course and the Night Photo Walks where you require manual functions on your camera. Such events are clearly noted in the descriptions.

What is the accessibility like? 

Accessibility varies widely from event to event. Please get in touch with any accessibility questions.

Walking Photography also offers Private Leisure Tours at a fixed rate that can be tailored to address any accessibility needs.
