What I offer
I am a UK-based photographer, filmmaker and artist with over 30 years of experience in the creative sector. As well as undertaking commissions, I now regularly run hands-on practical workshops, retreats and events with different individuals, communities and organisations. I am passionate about supporting people to help them develop their technical and creative photography and filmmaking.
I am a smartphone camera enthusiast and now regularly use one as part of my creative work as a professional photographer and filmmaker. The power of the latest smartphone makes it much easier for beginners to take fantastic photographs and films without getting confused with countless controls and settings. While it may never replace the full-frame SLR camera, with smartphones the ability to take striking photographs is within reach of many more people.
My creative workshops and courses will give you the support you need to improve your photography and filmmaking. While covering the technical essentials, the main focus will be on improving your skills in a supportive and enjoyable environment.
