I have over 30 years of experience as a photographer covering a wide range of genres and I offer photography workshops for small groups or on a 1-2-1 basis.

Workshop for Beginners – Introduction to Photography

If you are not getting the best from your DSLR or Mirrorless camera then I can explain your camera controls and introduce you to the basic principles of photography of exposure, aperture, shutter speed and ISO.  We can look at how to use these creatively and the effect they have with demonstration and hands-on practical exercises.

  • Understanding Your Camera: Focusing, modes, white balance, metering, raw and jpeg
  • Understanding Exposure: ISO, aperture, shutter speed
  • Creative camera control: Shutter speed, aperture
  • Understanding Lenses: Wide angle, standard and telephoto, zoom v prime, choosing the right lens, using lenses for effect
  • Introduction to Composition: What to include or exclude, backgrounds, contrast, what is pleasing, angles

*A DSLR (digital single lens reflex), Mirrorless or CSC (compact system camera) will be required.

 

Intermediate Workshop – Studio Portrait Lighting

I teach my approach to studio lighting, utilising the qualities of light to create the desired effect;

  • Hard and soft light
  • High and low contrast
  • Texture, shaping and dimensionality
  • Metering
  • Light modifiers.

*A DSLR (digital single lens reflex), Mirrorless or CSC (compact system camera) will be required.
