Tuition

I am pleased to offer landscape photography workshops including one to one and small group tuition and also 3 hour taster sessions (max attendees 10) for people who would like an introduction to Landscape Photography.

Tuition and workshops are tailored to suit your experience and requirements. My aim is that you enjoy the day with the emphasis on trying out the things you’ve learned in inspiring locations such as the New Forest in Hampshire or the Jurassic Coast in Dorset.

Once you’ve booked a workshop I will contact you to discuss your requirements. Are there any specific areas you are looking to develop or are you just after general tips and practice? By checking this with you I will ensure that the day is tailored to be exactly what you want.
