After a formal education in photography and receiving my Honours degree, I continued onwards to complete my PGCE or teaching training, that has allowed me to achieve a personal ambition of mine, becoming a teacher. The knowledge and skills learnt have proven advantageous for organising and hosting photographic workshops, combining two of my passions whilst getting the opportunity to share some beautiful locations with friendly groups. My workshops are always relaxed, welcoming and even if the weather is not favourable, fun!

I provide two different formats of workshops starting with the tailored one-to-one tuition where the date and location are chosen by yourself. These are ideal for focusing on specific techniques or beginners. Secondly is working within a small group where the date and location are prearranged. These group sessions are perfect for drawing together like minded individuals for a day of great conversation and photographs.
