Welcome to my photography workshops page. Over the course of the year I run a varied series of half and full-day photography workshops across Northumberland, County Durham and the northern cities such as Newcastle. (See Photography workshop dates at a glance.) As well as organised workshops I’m happy to arrange bespoke one-to-one workshops too.
You’ve probably got a few questions. Below are answers to some of the questions I’m commonly asked. If you’ve got other questions that I’ve not thought of then don’t hesitate to contact me.
Q. How big are your workshop groups?
My small-group workshop sizes are restricted to just four participants. This means that you won’t be lost in a crowd, so I’ll be able to give you plenty of personal attention during the workshop.
Q. Do I need to be a photography expert?
Not at all. A lot of people who come on my workshops have only recently taken up photography. Absolute beginners are more than welcome. We all have to start somewhere.
Q. Will there be a test at the end of the workshop?
I’m not that cruel. Ask the questions you really want answers to (about photography preferably, though I’ll try my best to answer general knowledge queestions too). And don’t be embarrassed about asking simple questions either. No-one is born a photographer and there are times when photography can be a head-scratching experience. Hopefully I’ll take some of the mystery out of photography for you during your workshop.
Q. Do I need a fancy camera?
I’m a firm believer that it’s possible to make interesting photos with any camera. One of my goals with the workshops is to help you make the most of the camera you have. However, if you’re thinking about buying a camera I’m happy to offer advice before, during or after the workshop.
Q. I don’t like photography but I know someone who does. Can I buy a workshop voucher for them?
Workshop sessions can make a welcome gift for the keen photographer. If you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary and think that this might fit the bill, I’d be happy to arrange a Workshop Voucher for you, along with a blank greetings card from my range of cards, to enable you to dedicate your gift. See Workshop Vouchers for details.
I hope that there’s something in the workshop schedule to inspire you. If you have any queries about the workshops listed, or ideas for workshops you would like to see in the future, please contact me – I’d be very interested to hear from you.
