I run occasional landscape photography workshops and provide tailored tuition:
It will come as no surprise to those who have seen my work and discussed tuition with me that my workshops are called ‘Discovered Landscapes’. How will the course be structured?
...From the many questions and chats I’ve had with visitors to my stands, the most common frustrations are getting out of auto mode, exposure problems, and just not being able to see interesting compositions. Whether you’re struggling with these problems or just not getting the best out of your DSLR camera and would like to spend a few hours in a nearby location learning more, my 'Discovered Landscapes' workshop could be the answer.
The rough outline will be this: you tell me in advance what particular aspects you’re struggling with; we meet up for around four hours* and I’ll help you overcome your barriers while we seek out those elusive ‘Discovered Landscapes’. I'm happy to run sessions on a one-to-one basis, or maybe you'd prefer to bring a friend with you. The price will be £100, per session.
Feedback from my most recent workshops:
'Thank you for this morning's teaching, it exceeded my expectations.'
... and a few more kind word ... "I treated myself to a 1 to 1 photography session. My teacher, Barry, met me and immediately put me at my ease. I have come away feeling really enthusiastic about getting out there and taking more pictures. I realised that Barry had a plan but I felt comfortable asking him questions. The 4 hours flew by and I feel more confident in going out on my own to experiment with my new knowledge and practical application. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get 'off the green button' " Mrs A.
"Barry spent time thinking about what we really need to develop our photography skills and then provided a good tutorial about principles and equipment before going outside and pointing out opportunities for interesting and arresting photos and showing us how best to capture them. Once we've absorbed and built on what we've learnt so far we're likely to ask Barry to help us get to the next stage. We recommend him to other keen photographers who've been spoilt by the ease with which digital cameras enable us to take adequate photos but still hanker after doing better." Mr & Mrs N.
*The workshop could extend beyond four hours, depending on how things unfold and what we discover
