ABOUT MY WORKSHOPS
My photography workshops are a ‘hands on’ experience. I work and shoot alongside you all the way. I firmly believe that SHOWING someone how to do something is always better than TELLING them.
Technical skills are important, and I’m always there to help you with these, but for me, becoming a better photographer is not about equipment and, although we will spend time improving your skills with it, it’s not about post-production. It’s about your eye…and having the confidence to express yourself with it. You will be taken out of your comfort zone, shaken up and put back down as a better photographer.
DEVELOPING YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY SKILLS
Here are three things that I consider to be important elements in taking your photography to the next level:
1: YOU WILL NEVER IMPROVE AS A PHOTOGRAPHER BY TAKING THE SAME PICTURE OVER AND OVER AGAIN...
2: YOU WILL NEVER BECOME A BETTER FOOD/LANDSCAPE/PORTRAIT/STREET PHOTOGRAPHER TILL YOU BECOME A BETTER PHOTOGRAPHER...
3: YOU CAN NEVER MAKE A BAD PICTURE GOOD IN POST PRODUCTION, BUT YOU CAN ALWAYS MAKE A GOOD PICTURE BETTER...
WHO ARE THE WORKSHOPS AIMED AT?
In a word, everyone.
I make a point of having no age barriers and, most importantly, no limits on experience. I always find that people with none, or very limited photographic experience tend to ask the questions that the more experienced photographer SHOULD be asking but is probably too embarrassed to do so!
What these workshops are designed to do is to open your eyes and help you to relax into your chosen discipline. Have you ever watched an experienced baker making bread? The way those strong hands knead and mould the dough in a manner that can only come from years of experience? That’s the way I’d like you to be able to approach your photography. Confident and assured, but always keeping an open mind about new ideas.
So…if you want to come on a photography workshop to learn how your expensive and shiny new camera works. Or to be told where exactly to stand to take your pictures from… or to learn how to fake things in Photoshop. Or to learn how to make your pictures look EXACTLY the same as your favourite photographers’, then my photography workshops are probably not for you.
If you want to come on a photography workshop to improve your photography, to wake up your creativity, to refresh the way you see things, to get out of your comfort zone and really start to express yourself…
Or, for that matter, to learn how to build a photographic story, to get a better idea about post-processing and how to use it to your advantage WITHOUT faking things, to have a really good portfolio review and to spend time with like minded souls discussing our mutual passion for photography…
then these are the ones for you
