Practicing photographer providing lessons at all levels from basic to degree level

Methodology

I am an accomplished photographer with over 20 years of practice and teaching photography. I have an in-depth knowledge of technical, creative and theoretical aspects of photography. I have taught large and small groups, most recently at degree level, but also surveillance photography in the military, private courses in the UK and abroad, workshops to individuals and businesses and in community settings.

I teach at all levels from beginner to advanced for those interested in personal development, or to assist with portfolios for College / University applications, projects and assignments. Perhaps you want to improve your photography to use in a business or to improve another artistic discipline.

I will tailor the teaching to the individual, to fill gaps in knowledge or deal with specific aspects or start from the beginning as required. My experience in practice and teaching has helped me to develop quick and effective methods of teaching.

Experience

I have been teaching photography for the entirety of my 20+ year career, teaching hundreds of students at a broad range of levels, from beginner to professional. I teach to groups and individuals in various settings; courses, workshops, business training packages, up to degree level.

My teaching can cover all aspects of analog and digital photography, including film and digital camera skills, Adobe applications, editing, technical and theory based aspects including conceptual and contextual discussion and research.

I also lecture and give talks, judge competitions, advise, consult and mentor in all areas of image creation. I have helped numerous people successfully complete college and university courses, improve businesses, become professional photographers.
