Workshops

GET BETTER FAST

If you want to accelerate your ability to take better images then there are a number of workshop modules specifically designed to shortcut what would otherwise take years of experimentation and study. I guarentee you will take better images as a result of these workshops.

The techniques discussed and practiced are all used by world class photographers. It took me many years of study to understand these techniques, not because they are difficult, but because they are rarely talked about in detail. 

These workshops are not for you if you are looking for a technical guidance on how to use a camera. We do discuss appropriate settings (ISO, shutterspeed, aperture) in the context of techniques but the primary focus is on how to get the best images which is little to do with camera settings. Many of the best photographers shoot on auto or semi-auto. Learning that was a revelation to me; for years previously I could not work out why my images were not great despite having an in depth understanding of how a camera works, and despite buying increasingly expensive cameras and lenses that made no difference.

These are workshops for individuals or small groups that want to take better street or documentry photographs, overcome fear, learn to see and increase their hit rates.... You do not need a detailed technical understanding of your camera to get great shots.  

INTRODUCTION TO STREET PHOTOGRAPHY

This module is for those new to street photography, who want to take their first steps onto the streets and accelerate their learning process.

HOW TO SEE AND INCREASE LUCK

 This module will help you to observe the world around you. It will suddenly become a more beautiful place and you will understand luck.

OVERCOME FEAR AND BE INVISIBLE

It's a scary place on the streets. Learn techniques to be invisible & get in close unnoticed. Overcoming fear is about having the techniques at your disposal and the confidence in those techniques.

PERSONAL CUSTOM WORKSHOP

This is specific to YOU. We begin by reviewing your best images to understand their weaknesses and where we need to focus. We will then work through techniques needed to go to the next level and then go out to practice.

LOCATIONS

I tend to run the workshops in either London or South East coastal towns like Margate or Brighton, but can be flexible to accommodate.

COSTS

For a half day workshop the cost is £200, for a full day £350. It is the same cost if you share with friends. This is a tiny investment compared to buying a new lens or camera, and you will gain far more from it. If you do not come away entirely satisfied then I WILL GIVE YOU YOUR MONEY BACK.

CONCESSIONS

Photography is for everyone. I operate a number of free spaces per year to give opportunties for everyone. Please do get in touch and we will see what we can do.
