Nominated for SWPP Best Professional Photographic Training 2017
1-2-1 Photography and editing training
My 1-2-1 training days are tailored to suit what YOU want to learn. You can choose from a variety of subjects including maternity, newborn, child fine art, styled outdoors, pet fine art, composites or editing (Lightroom and Photoshop). I am based in Bournemouth, Dorset and you'd attend your training in my studio (or in the local area to me if you choose outdoors training). As with all of my training my aim is for you to learn how to achieve images which require very little processing (unless your creative flare wants to), I'll be showing you how to set up your camera, camera angles, studio lighting (natural light for outdoors styled shoots), how to interact with your subject to achieve the results you are wanting, how to prep your clients (or parents) for the shoot and how to market, price and sell your finished work. All training days include access to my private Facebook support group. I teach all skill levels from very beginner to advanced. All sessions are individual. If you wish to add post processing to your training day please just let me know when booking. This isn't a problem at all and can usually be added to the last hour of your training day. Lunch and refreshments are provided on the day so please let me know if you have any dietary requirements when booking. I teach very hands on so whether you choose to learn newborn photography or pet photography you will be both posing and shooting on the day.
1-2-1's are priced at £495 per day, or team up with another person to save money! £695
Book 2 days for just £695 (£795 for two people)
Book a mini 1-2-1 training day for just £295. Training for 3 1/2 hours on the subject of your choice (not including newborns)
Please see the TESTIMONIALS from previous attendees
I aim my workshops at giving you the confidence and skills to be able to go out and photograph for your clients and be happy with the end results consistently. I teach in simple terms that you'll easily be able to replicate again and again. I will show you the best angles to shoot from, how to light to compliment your subjects as well as giving you business advice along the way. I also try and include the editing of one or two images for each workshop. My workshops are aimed at those beginning and also those who are well in to their career but would like refreshing. Please feel free to bring cameras, laptops and notepads if you wish to take part during the day. I so have some ladies just make notes through the day rather than shoot, if that's how you learn best then please don't feel you will be out of place. There will be plenty of time for any questions you may have throughout the day.

CHILD FINE ART
I will cover how to prep for your shoot and what advice I give for clothing etc to achieve the timeless fine art style of images. I will be showing you how to interact to create the beautiful expressions on the children and how to light for beautiful sculptured shadows. At these sessions I always include editing because this is part of achieving the fine art look although you will be pleasantly surprised about how beautiful your images will be in camera. I do not heavily edit but there are some wonderful final touches you will easily be able to add to your work. Facebook marketing, business advise etc The day is totally tailored to you, you choose what you want to learn. I also include how market and sell wall art from your session.
If you love photographing newborns then learning maternity photography is a must. This will bring your clients to you prior to even thinking about booking for their newborn shoot and you will then have the chance to bond with your customer which in turn leads to a more relaxed newborn session. I will be teaching both high key and low key lighting, how to use voiles to create wonderful 'outfits' and how to back light and create silhouettes.
In addition to the above I also teach children outdoors, parent posing, newborn wrapping, composites, pets, editing, lighting, marketing and in person sales, business reviews etc. Please message me for more details
