I love working with other photographers, particularly those who are keen to improve their confidence when it comes to capturing their own families. Sign up to my mailing list to receive your free copy of my PDF ‘Ten Ways to Improve the Photographs You Take of Your Family’ which should hopefully prove helpful whatever your level. If you are looking to develop your skills further then I also offer one-to-one mentoring and portfolio critiques and am planning my first group workshop for late 2019 – further details below!
One-to-one Mentoring – from £75 per hour
Includes Skype or in-person mentoring 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;
- Planning and completing a personal project;
- Workflow and editing;
- 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 25 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 monochrome processing, 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!
