Late Summer & Autumn Schedule

As summer holidays draw to a close, it's time to start thinking about the next quarter and possible photography events that you can attend and learn new skills or brush up on existing methods of camera operation and/or composition and outdoor photography.

20% off if booked by 1st Sep

To encourage you I am offering 20% off any booking made by 1st Sep 2018.  Just enter the discount code LCNPLJZ in the coupon box on checkout.  Offer can be used for multiple bookings and for any event(s).


As I mentioned in recent blog posts I have made some back-end changes on the website to make it easier to navigate and filter from over 250 event listings.  One addition is the event calendar - scroll through the events for each month and click on any event on a day to directly access the details of the event. 

The Register Interest button has now been rolled out across the site so you can also click on it just to let me know you're interested and thinking about joining that event.

I am looking forward to my fifth consecutive year of Autumn Photography Workshops at Batsford Arboretum this October.   These popular workshops are set in a fantastic woodland environment with a vast array of colour and varying opportunities for any level of photographer to learn and practise macro, abstract, vista and any the art of seeing good photographic shots.  Book early to avoid disappointment. 

Half and full day workshop options with exclusive access to the grounds on the morning workshop.

As mentioned in an earlier blog post this month, I have added two new courses for Intermediates. To make things simpler for clients I have categorised all the classes and courses with Level 1 - Beginners and Level 2 - Intermediates.  So in addition to the beginner's photo course and Lightroom Course, there is now an intermediate 4wk Photography course and an intermediate 4wk Lightroom Course.

Both new courses will run at Kenilworth or Solihull which means I may be running less of the original 5wk beginner's courses but aim to ensure I alternate that course between the locations every six weeks or so.  Naturally, if there is sufficient demand for the new courses then I will revise the schedule and offerings, so if you are interested please ensure you click the Register Interest button.  Maybe you need to use your JLR ELS Voucher before the end of September!

I am pleased to say that after six months of launching the course we are making great progress with several participants already reaching 50% or more of a draft panel.  The collaborative format of each class is proving to be popular and a great way to get ideas, inspiration and discuss images collectively.

If you are interested in joining this course and giving yourself a target to work on an image collection for RPS Distinction please get in touch to discuss or just book online. You can enrol at any time and join a class to suit your pace and availability.


Where multiple events are listed for the same date, the demand will dictate which events will proceed but every effort will be made to ensure that each event type runs even if on different dates or locations.


If you would like to see some of the images that I have taken over the past month that may encourage you to join me then check out my latest images.

2.5hr Introductory Classes for beginners - run regularly on Tuesdays in Solihull and Thursdays in Kenilworth. All evening classes are from 6:45 pm to 9:15 pm - no experience required to attend.

If you would prefer to do one to one tuition then I am available to book in half or one day sessions during the day  - Other Tuition Services

All photography events can be added to a Pick n Mix tuition plan so that you can spread the cost of courses, workshops and tuition and ensure your development is structured.
