WORKSHOPS, TRAINING, PRESENTATIONS, MENTORING
I am available to talk to Photography Groups, Societies etc about my approach and techniques. I am currently not doing 121 training sessions.
Given circumstances due to Covid-19 I am providing presentations via Zoom only until further notice.
All of my sessions are aimed at offering advice and instructional technique, I do this via a zoom presentation and I actively encourage people to ask questions throughout to make the session as interactive as possible.
I also reference resources like other photographers, books and videos etc that might be helpful. I have my own Zoom licence so I am happy host a meeting for you if required.

Having worked for the last 30 years in education and I am a great advocate of sharing knowledge. In my years working in a West Yorkshire further education college I have had the opportunity to deliver a range of different workshops and training to all levels.
My aim in my Workshops is to help you make improvements in your own photography and creative imaging and to do that in an environment that is supportive and with like minded individuals. I cater for all levels from beginner to aspiring professional and work only with small groups to ensure maximum contact and inspiration. I want to help you get the maximum enjoyment from my sessions and to come away from them with a renewed enthusiasm for photography and to develop your own creative images.
