Tuition & Workshops 

My goal for each workshop I run is for every client to have a memorable experience, to develop their photography knowledge, create lasting memories and have lots of fun doing it. For workshops that I run personally across the UK and further afield, I will only ever have a maximum of 4 clients**. The reason for this is simple, any more and I don't believe you receive the service and level of tuition that you would expect. Listed below are workshops that are currently planned for 2020 and 2021. If you have individual needs or indeed would like to visit a specific area both in the UK or Europe to further your photography skills then please get in touch as discuss your requirements.

** Please note the Dark Skies Workshops and Cober Hill are taster session. As such these are not limited to 4 clients.

Photography Club Talks & Presentations

If you run or are a member of the photography club and would like to attend and deliver a presentation on photographing the night sky then please contact me directly. Presentations last between 2 and 3 hours and cover all aspects when, where and how to photography the night skies along with a presentation PDF for all attending members.
