At the end of the workshop, there will be a course booklet for you to keep and review.

I am always happy to field questions afterwards via email, and please feel free to share your new images as well.

Workshops run throughout the year and there will always be a seasonal workshop too!


The course material is presented in both a written and visual form, I will show you photographs to help you understand the techniques and also show you how to do it directly on your own camera.


A digital camera, preferably a camera with manual settings is preferred. Classes are limited to make sure everyone has a good understanding of their own camera at the end of the session.


These courses are part classroom-based tutorials, practical demonstrations and hands on practice. You will be taken outside into the Surrey hills and on return will review the images.

  • "You come across so well on the online course. You have a lovely manner which is so easy to connect to. You have the ability to connect to everyone from the real camera buffs and enthusiasts, people who lack confidence like myself to the young people and children. That is a rare skill as so many are either techie and deadly boring " - Lesley

  • "We bought our camera when our children were born so we could document their lives – but have only ever used the camera on its automatic setting. The camera course has given me the confidence to explore my camera and experiment with it on different settings. The take home information has also been brilliant to refer back to with lots of short cuts and top tips. I can’t wait to get out and use my camera more."
