Would you like to learn to take better photographs?

I offer 1:2:1 classes covering many aspects of photography which will be tailored to suit your needs from beginner to advanced. We will start by looking at how to control your camera using the correct Aperture, ISO & Shutter Speed according to the subject and conditions. These three settings are the fundamentals of photography and each one has an influence on the other. An understanding of these will not only allow you to achieve technically correct images but will also allow you to become more creative in your approach to photography.

Composition is another important aspect of photography. If you understand the principles you will instantly learn how to take better pictures regardless of what equipment you may have, even with a phone! Photography is all about capturing light, so you will learn how to see natural light and use it creatively to take better photographs.

As time permits, we will also cover other aspects such as white balance and understanding your histogram and any other topics you may be having difficulty with.

There are many beautiful locations we can visit in East Essex such as coastal towns, gardens, parks or wildlife reserves which will inspire you to take better pictures. If you would like your workshop more than 25 miles from Burnham-on-Crouch I may need to charge an additional fee for travel.

This is a chance to learn at your own pace from an experienced professional photographer.

My current cameras of choice are the Sony Mirrorless A Series, but I am also an experienced Canon user of many years. The fundamentals of photography are the same however whichever camera system you use.
