One-Day Worskhops

One Day Workshops in Somerset

How to capture creative and artistic images of nature, the workshops have had a re-vamp for 2017 and will be more subject specific

10am - 5pm, This year sees the workshops run at two locations, one in the morning for photography and a second in the afternoon for lunch, more photography or post processing on private land in Somerset, maximum of 8 people per workshop to allow for plenty of one-to-one time. We will be travelling to a nearby location for the morning photography in cars and then heading back for lunch and the afternoon session, we will be walking part of the way to the location, particularly the bluebells which involves going down (and back up) a small hill, sturdy footwear is essential.

(minimum of 2 people required to run the workshop).

£80 per person includes:
Full day tuition, morning taking photos at a location and the afternoon looking briefly at post processing, printing and social media, there will be time to take more photos in the afternoon as well as image critic. Lunch, Tea, Coffee, biscuits & homemade cake

What is Covered:
Aperture, composition, light, shutter speed, monochrome, processing (not an in depth look or workshop for processing, just looking at what I personally do when it comes to processing), printing & paper, tips & tricks to get the most out of your subject.

The focus will be on carrying out the majority of the work in camera although we will briefly cover post processing and printing in the afternoon. The morning of the workshop will be based outside combining different aspects of photography to achieve more creative and artistic images of common subjects whilst being aware and careful of the area in which you are working so as not to cause damage. I will be sharing some of my most commonly used tips, tricks and techniques with you throughout the day which can be taken over to many different areas of photography not just nature (for example I use many of them in my wedding photography).

A basic working knowledge of your equipment and a basic understanding of aperture and white balance are essential.

What to bring:
Camera(s) and manual if you can, lenses, tripod (or monopod) any filters you have, laptop or tablet if you would like image critic and to process your image on the day (please make sure your editing software is installed and ready to go), outdoor clothing (waterproofs, fleeces, outdoor and indoor shoes etc), ideas and questions!
