I hosted my first photography training course way back in 2012, since then I've held sell out wedding, landscape and business photography workshops around the UK and Europe including London, Paris, Venice and Italian Castles
My training courses are practical hands on photography and business days, teaching real world techniques which I use day in, day out in my own wedding photography business.
Wedding photography workshops and training courses are an ideal way of building your business, learning new techniques and styles as well as trying new creative ideas to add the wow factor to your wedding photography. Photography workshops and portfolio days are about taking photographs and during the day you’ll have plenty of time doing just that, hands on practical learning with expert tuition will ensure the new techniques you learn on a training day will be quickly remembered, allowing you to create your own stunning wedding photographs.
Winner of numerous national awards including The Societies Overall Photographer of the Year, wedding photographer of the year and the Guild of Photographers, Photographer of the year and four times winner of Wedding Photographer of the Year.
Wedding photography training days and workshops are full of real world advice and practical information to help you book, shoot and sell more weddings at your chosen price point. There are lots of wedding photographers and lots of wedding photography training courses out there, the courses offered by myself are designed to help you build your business and create your brand style with real world advice and methods of working we use day in day out.
