Professional photographer (over 20 years experience) with a PGCE in Adult Education

Methodology

My approach is friendly and inclusive. I work equally well with individuals and small groups. My style of teaching is 30% lecture and 60% practical. The other 10%? Coffee of course! Because of my experience, I am able to teach students of all levels, the practicalities of photography, with my own creative input too.

Experience

I'm a professional wedding photographer with a real passion for my subject. I love to teach people how to get the best out of their cameras and software, including Photoshop. I regularly teach complete novices right through to keen amateurs wanting to extend their skills and knowledge. I am able to teach camera operation, terminology, photographic genres and more. I can also advise on equipment choice and purchasing.
