Whether your photography is for pleasure – holidays, family, wildlife, or for business – products, profiles, social media updates, workshops can be tailored to suit your need.  

Learning with a professional

Think of learning how to use a camera as a bit like learning to drive a car. It all seems pretty daunting to begin with, having to think about the gears, the speed and the steering all at once and how they’re related. Some people take to it very naturally once they understand the basics and some just take a bit longer. You can make it simpler by driving an automatic and not having to think about the gears but you won’t get the superior control or engaging experience you could have with a manual car. You can also learn to drive without using a proper instructor but it’s a lot easier and quicker when you work with a professional who guides you through with an understanding of all the challenges and common mistakes.
