Bespoke one-to-one photography courses


Cameras, lenses, exposure, memory cards, composition and the like, are all
essential ‘tools’ of photography and the tuition fully covers all the tools, and more.
. . . . . . .
In addition my courses reveal secrets that aid the search for better photography,
including the benefits of ‘thinking outside the toolbox’!


Whether for a single person or small group, the tuition is designed specifically
to your wishes and goals, whatever the ability, equipment, or skills level.
. . . . . . .
Covering both the technical and creative aspects of photography, the workshop
offers first-hand friendly tuition, with clear practical demonstrations of the key
ingredients for great successful photography.
. . . . . . .
With plenty of time for practice and questions, the classes are the
perfect opportunity for anyone wishing to take their photography to the next level.


The courses take place outdoors in central London, with the locations selected to best serve the needs of the day.
Most take place along the River Thames Southbank, with the City of London Square Mile also being popular.
. . . . . . .
Both of these areas have a great mix of the old and new and offer a wealth of activity,
colour and culture, with endless photographic opportunities whatever the weather.
