About Me - Alan Ranger 

Alan Ranger


Alan Ranger is a professional photographer and qualified photography tutor based in the Midlands, UK. 

Alan's business is dedicated to teaching photography. Teaching all abilities and interests he works with clients on a 1-2-1 basis and through small group classes and courses in the Midlands.  

Alan leads location based photography workshops around the UK where he supports and instructs photographers, of all levels, the art of camera craft and creative composition.  Alan has also worked within schools providing photography workshops to children with special needs.

Alan has made teaching photography a full-time occupation for over 5 years and is one of the only professionally qualified photography tutors who has dedicated his photography business to education and tuition.

"A passion for photography combined with deep understanding are the most important attributes of a photographic tutor. Alan combines these two qualities in equal measure. His obvious enthusiasm is bound to inspire his clients and help them achieve ever higher standards" - David J Ward

He uses the camera to express the excitement of life; this is not done through imitation, but by pulling together strands of creative thought and weaving them into masterful reflections of feeling and insight. Disciplined yet inventive, his inimitable approach allows him to turn unremarkable moments in to extraordinary images, depicting the remarkable journey through life.  Read Alan's Blogs on composition to get an idea of his approach.

He has developed his personal style after more than 20 years’ experience: through expression, perception and a deep understanding of creative intention.  Alan uses this understanding to coach clients in a simple, clear manner – inspiring each person to discover individual instincts. He is happy to offer photography tips willingly to help anyone learn photography and even use his photography skills and experience to provide something memorable for those in need. See Help-Portrait Project.

His professional credentials and experience have led to him being an "Approved photography training provider for Jaguar Land Rover" via the JLR Employee Learning Scheme, and being commissioned to lead over 30 photography education lectures in the UAE at Xposure International Photography Festival in 2016 and 2017
