Photography workshops

in Kent, Sussex, Essex, Surrey and London

1-2-1 and small group workshops

Are you interested in learning the wonderful art of photography? 

I have been running my workshops for over ten years now catering for all levels from beginners through advanced photographers.

Whether it is understanding of your camera and lens through successful composition and final execution of the shoot and post-production in Lightroom, Photoshop and Nik Collection – you will learn it all from me at your pace and in a very friendly atmosphere.

From ‘regular’ photography through to long exposure, ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) or infrared photography, I’d be happy to show you how I am planning my shots and achieving desired results.

The workshop will be tailored specifically to your needs and interests to make sure you get the most out of the session. The four hour session runs from 10am – 2pm, while the full day (8 hours) session is more flexible.

It is still not possible – and for a very good reason – to organise full-scale workshops and meeting with more than six people. It is, however, perfectly OK for us to meet in a small group up to six – and what can be a better option for a photography workshop than a 1-2-1 or small group meet where you can be sure that your tutor attention will all be given to you? This is exactly what I am offering.

My workshops are organised on Saturdays to ensure they do not collide with your working day (for most of us anyway). It is of course possible to move the workshop to a different day or place, if you would like to request it.

In case of cancelling the workshop by myself (which is extremely unlikely) the full refund is made immediately. In case of postponing the workshop due to inclement weather, all arrangements and payments are moved to a new date.

Most of my workshops organised before the lockdown were sold out – if you are interested in taking part please do not hesitate to get in touch with me early to secure your place.

To arrange booking a workshop with me and and discuss its focus and timing please drop me a line using the contact page. I will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible.

I recently had a full day 1 -1 workshop with Derek in London. He gave me lots of options in regards to locations and we settled on the Shard then moving onto Docklands. Derek went through the steps you need to take in the “technical” side but also encouraged taking time to really look at a scene. I feel a lot more confident now with long exposure photography thanks to Derek explaining it so well. Derek also suggested I send him a RAW file to look at which is a nice touch. Thank you for a great day.

I also offer ZOOM 1-2-1 tuition if you prefer remote meetings.
