Workshops for Photographers

Do you want to learn something new? Improve your photography – either in the studio or on location? My small group photography workshops cover many aspects of photography and are a great place to start if you are beginning your photography journey, as a reminder after a break, or choose a more advanced course if you’re looking to improve existing skills.

You can read more about why a workshop may be right for you in my blog post. 

I have years of experience, a background in training and a wealth of knowledge so I can deliver interesting, engaging and hands on workshops.

    I have trained with Gary twice and am in one of his training groups. His knowledge of lighting and posing is second to none. If I could turn back the clock, I would have trained with him way back at the start of my photography journey. He's a personable guy too, loves his job, has passion and it shows. Well liked and respected across the photography industry in the UK and beyond.

    I met Gary a good few years ago now and have been lucky enough to attend some of his photography workshops. This man is the best when it comes to his knowledge of lighting, in all aspects of photography. He is very patient and and spends time explaining everything, including the basics. I have learnt a lot from him and now use my light meter for every session!

    I've trained with Gary on a couple of occasions now. I always walk away with so much fresh knowledge and inspiration. His training is informative, engaging, lots of laughs. He is careful to make sure that everybody feels included explains all points well but moves the class along at a pace so everybody's interest is piqued all day. I'd recommend training with Gary in a heartbeat. You will recoup that investment in no time.

    Gary is the most incredible photography trainer. He makes you feel immediately at ease and breaks everything down so no matter where you are on your journey in to photography you will learn so much. I have been lucky enough to do quite a lot of training with Gary and after every session I just want more. Above all that he’s one of the nicest blokes you’ll ever meet and he makes way more time for people than should ever be expected. I wouldn’t be producing the work I am today without Gary.
