I am based in the Scottish Highlands, home to some of the most spectacular scenery in the British Isles. You choose where we go.
Everyone is at different levels and like different genres of photography, so there is no set itinerary and all levels are welcome.
Your 1 on 1 photo training will go at the right pace for you and concentrate only on what you need to grow your skills and self-confidence.
If you’re a complete beginner you won’t feel left behind (or that you might be holding others back). If you’re more experienced, you won’t be held back.
You’ll gain new skills, expand existing skills, improve your understanding and evolve new ways of thinking about and using photographic techniques.
If you’re not local but would still like a workshop with me I can travel within a reasonable distance, normally no more than 100 miles from Tain. Please note expenses for fuel will be required.
We’ll discuss some of your work you feel great about, some you don’t and asses it together. You can ask me anything and I’ll help you work through issues you’re currently stuck on.
I’ll set practical tasks for you, ask you questions that’ll make you think pretty hard about what you’re doing – and help you find answers that’ll lead to your desired outcome.
I want you to go home having learnt loads and feeling confident – rather than just nice photos you don’t know how to repeat.
