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 2021, 2022 and 2023. 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 see the bottom of the page for information regarding Covid. All workshops are fully refundable is cancellation forced upon us due to government restrictions as a result of the Coronavirus.

Lofoton is known for its spectacular landscapes and with it location being in the Arctic Circle it offers the chance to not only photograph the Northern Lights but to see them with the naked eye. Indeed the dates of the workshop have been chosen specifically to maximise this.

Whilst nothing can ever be guaranteed it does maximise our chances. The workshop will run for 7 nights and will include self catering accommodation in Lofoten, travel when in Norway and the workshop. Flights to and from the UK to Loften are not included and no meals are included in the price.

COVID 19

We are living in very uncertain times at the moment due to Covid 19 and the restrictions that are being placed upon our lives. Hopefully by the time we reach 2022 and 2023 the nightmare that has been the Coronavirus will be behind us, we will all be vaccinated and our lives will have returned to normal. However I am aware that there will still be a nervousness out there. All of the workshops that I offer come with a guarantee that if restrictions are enforced that does not allow the workshop to take place then we will look to find you an alternative date ( for weekend workshops only ) or a full refund of any monies paid including non refundable deposits will be paid.  Please note that if you have booked accommodation yourself to attend a workshop then this would nor be covered not would flights to either Iceland or Norway. In these events you would need to obtain the refunds from airlines or accommodation providers yourself. For all week long or longer workshops based either in the UK or Internationally then it is a mandatory requirement to provide me with the travel insurance policy details and I would strongly urge you to check that your cover includes Covid 19 cancellation cover. 

For all workshop bookings, please complete the attached form. I will then contact you to confirm availability and your booking. Please also indicate how many places you would like to book.
