We have a range of workshops and walks that cover everything from learning how to capture those happy moments in your everyday family life right through to perfecting those important shots for your business.

Whats New?

Our next Photography Basics workshop - for those who want to learn how to use their fancy camera - is in Leatherhead on 5th November 2016

Our Aim


To teach you how to use your camera to achieve the shots you see in your minds eye, whilst encouraging your creativity when it comes to taking photos.

We have designed a series of courses for you that cover photography basics for all beginners right through to product photography and styling, which is ideal for small businesses.

All of our courses are run professional photographers, and course sizes are kept deliberately small, to ensure that you get the very most out of your time.

For each course you will need your camera, a memory card and a full battery - both for you and your camera!

The day includes lunch, laughter and lots of fun as well.

I am really looking forward to meeting you!

Photography Basics workshop

I was so pleased with what I learnt on the course and really impressed with how it was presented, manageable yet challenging and the fact that I felt so inspired afterwards that all I wanted to do the next few days was grab my camera and just go out and practice taking photos.
