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?
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 and inspiring photography lessons will 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 exceptional photos.
I love sharing my knowledge and experience 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!
