Upcoming Events - Jul-Sep

Summer Events

We have had an exceptional dry/hot spell for the last month and let's hope it continues through to September as families break for holidays and we all enjoy some time with our camera's and new places we visit over the summer holiday period.   Apart from a few weeks where I will take a rest, not really a rest with my daughter, I am available and running workshops and classes throughout July and August before returning to the usual patterns of evening courses and weekend workshops.  So take a look at what's coming up and give me a ring to chat/discuss/enquire about any events or ideas you have to develop your skills over the summer.

What's on offer...

2hrs Free Private 1-2-1 Tuition if you sign up for a PicknMix Package by 31st July


1-2-1 Tuition is tailored to you.

Prior to booking, please give me a ring to check and confirm availability, date, time and the content you require support and tuition on.  How we spend the time is entirely up to you but I will, of course, guide you too so that you maximise your time with me.

You could opt for...

  • Camera sensor clean or lens calibration
  • Getting to grips with the composition side of photography
  • Making better use of Lightroom and Photoshop or NIK for editing
  • General camera settings and using your camera more effectively
  • Exposure and bracketing the light
  • Using filters or controlling the dynamic range
  • A specific topic, landscapes, portraits, macro or abstract - whatever interests you.
  • Any combination and a mix of topics to suit your requirements.
  • The tuition can be all theory, all practical or a mix of both to suit you
