As well as taking photographs for clients I also love working with other photographers, particularly those who are keen to improve their skills and confidence when it comes to capturing their own families. I currently offer one-to-one mentoring and portfolio critiques and am planning my first group workshop for late 2019!

One-to-one Mentoring – from £75 per hour

Includes Skype or in-person mentoring focused on the areas of photography you would most like to improve, with follow-up support by email. Topics can be tailored for all levels from beginner to aspiring professional and might include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Getting started with your DSLR;
  • Understanding the exposure triangle and working in manual mode;
  • Improving technical aspects such as composition and focus;
  • Shooting with intent;
  • Planning and completing a personal project;
  • Editing, especially in monochrome;
  • Working with children and families;
  • Getting started with filming;
  • Shoot-along/portfolio building;
  • In person portfolio review.

Online Portfolio Review – £125

Detailed and constructive critique of up to 20 images submitted online and returned as a personalised PDF. I’ll focus on the strengths of each image and how well they work in communicating their message, both individually and as a body, but can also offer advice on technical elements such as composition and editing style if appropriate. I’ll provide a checklist for critiquing your own work too so that you can continue to assess your artistic choices and develop your voice.

Group Workshops – Coming Soon!!

Group workshops for up to 8 delegates, where I’ll talk about my approach to photographing my own children and demonstrate how I process RAW files. Aimed at intermediate photographers who are comfortable shooting in manual mode and familiar with editing software. Topics covered will include my kit and usual settings, tips for working with and engaging children, use of light and composition, anticipating the moment, developing your personal style, workflow, editing with intent and working in monochrome, with the opportunity to submit at least one of your own images to see how I would edit it! Lunch and coffee will be included, as will access to an exclusive Facebook group where you can keep in touch with other attendees and continue to share ideas. Please get in touch if you’d like to receive information as soon as the first date is announced!
