Fashion photographer and lecturer with 20 years of experience, offering lessons in London to students all abilities from beginner to advanced.

Methodology

I teach photography to all levels of student in practical ways making it easy to understand and then utilize the basic and more advanced concepts of photography and lighting. I tailor my lessons to each individuals experience, needs and pace.

Experience

I'm a fashion photographer with 20 years of industry experience. I also work with portraits, still life, landscapes. I have lectured and led workshops at a number of Universities including The London Metropolitan University in London.

I have worked across the world producing imagery for Elle and Marie Claire. Many of my assistants/students are now practising photographers.

I love working with students of all ages (DBS certified) to increase their knowledge and familiarity with working with their camera.

No matter what knowledge or experience you have we can work together so that you can begin to understand the basic concepts of photography (Shutter speed, ISO, depth of field) and know how to use your camera and it’s settings to create the photographs that you always dreamed of.

For more advanced students I can teach lighting, composition, art history, to further your individual knowledge and capabilities

I have 20+ years of international experience in the photographic industry. 10+ years of advertising and editorial experience including 6+ years in e-commerce. Specialist in fashion and beauty as well as still-life. I’m also a Producer, art director and creative director for still and moving shoots. After assisting Mert & Marcus in London and Tom Munro in New York I produced and shot imagery for clients such as Burberry, Daks, Elle and Marie-Claire Magazines.
