bespoke photography courses

One of the best ways to improve your photographs is to simply head out and take pictures. Don't wait until you are able to travel again: get out as much as possible and shoot as much as possible. And if you are able to be accompanied by a professional photographer, to help you with angles and techniques, then so much the better!

This is where I come in! On one of our bespoke photography courses, I will take you to various photogenic locations in the West Country, and help you to make the most of photographing them. With my help, you will be able to learn how to approach a new location, choose your composition and then master a numer of vital techniques that will give you the confidence to tackle similar subjects on your own in the future. This is what I am aiming for on both my courses and photography tours. I want to help you to get the skills and the confidence to be able to travel and photograph on your own!

There are a number of amazing locations within an hour or so drive of my new base in Somerset. This includes idyllic villages, stunning coastline and remote and wild moors. Itineraries can be customised to suit your interests, levels of fitness and the sorts of shots and even skills that you are interested in. Please have a look on the slideshow below to see some of the places you can be taken to, and the photographic skilols that you can learn, and then please do get in touch to discuss the options, the sort of places you are interested in and also the sort of photographic skills that you would like to master.

Until the current mini-lockdown is over in England we are unable to run any photography courses for more than one person. The rules do allow for two people to meet up in a public place though, so an individual photography course is possible. In the meantime, if you want to book up a course for when this current phase is over, please do get in touch using the form on this page.

Bespoke photography courses start from 250 depending on location and duration.

There are a number of skills that can be incorporated into a private photography course:

• Wildlife photography

• Landscape photography

• Using a tripod and slow shutter speeds

• Maximising depth of field

• Creative composition

• Shooting HDRs and Panoramas

• Night and Astro photography

• Drone photography

• Post-production and Lightroom skills

Any course that we run will be completely socially distanced, and will obviously follow any prevailing heath restrictions and rules. I can tailor the itinery to fit with your level of fitness, and interests, and any particular requirements that you might have.

If you are interested in a course lasting more than one day, I can recommend safe and comfortable local accommodation.
