All photography lessons are tailored to your needs and centred around practical, inspiring experiences. 

From absolute beginners to experienced professionals and everyone in between. I have over ten years of experience helping people get more from their cameras, and improving their photography.

Learn Photography at a Pace that Suits You

Whether you're overwhelmed with all the different camera buttons or looking to refine the quality of the photos you take. For over 10 years now, I've helped people get to grips with all brands and every type of camera. In that time I've developed a flexible approach for people of all experience levels and abilities; helping them to get more from their camera and take better photos.

Everyone learns differently, the important thing is that you enjoy it, and that is what lies at the heart of every lesson I share.

A Relaxed Pace from an Experienced Professional Photographer

I've learnt photography from the ground up. As a photography degree student I honed my craft on film cameras, using wet-based processing and printing techniques in both black and white and colour.

As a professional with over ten years industry experience, I've been at the sharp end of the fast-paced advances in digital cameras and photography. 

I have a genuine and heartfelt love of sharing my knowledge and experience with people 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.” - 5* Google Review

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.
