‘The Photographer’s Eye’ workshop provides opportunity to spend a day learning the basics of good image making. As a photographer, I am most influenced by the art of photography and its creative possibilities, rather than the science and theory, believing that the most important tool is the photographer's eye and their creative potential!
All workshops are limited in size, with a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 6 participants - allowing for lots of personal attention and intensive learning. I try to keep things simple, believing that photography is often over complicated and is learnt best by getting out and about and making photographs for yourself.
My aim is to develop what you see and to improve your ability to capture it. To move away from using the ‘Auto’ mode on your camera as you become more familiar with and confident in the use of Aperture and Shutter Priority modes - and to quickly transfer theory into practice through hands-on experimentation. The workshop is also a great opportunity to connect with and learn from other aspiring local photographers.
A basic level of understanding regarding digital photography.
A willingness to learn and experiment.
The workshop is ideally suited for those with Digital SLR cameras - with manual settings to control Aperture, Shutter Speed & ISO. However, should you wish to use a compact point-and-shoot or bridge camera, please email
me to discuss.

Why do you want to make photographs? What sort of photographer do you want to be? What is your inspiration?
Think about presenting your images - at home, as gifts, in local libraries, coffee shops, galleries, online...
