My approach to PhotoCoach workshops is grounded in the fact that just as Ansel Adams, Joe Cornish, Jack Dykinga, Michael Fatali, David Muench, Andrew Nadolski, Charlie Waite, David Ward, Brett Weston, - and any other of you landscape photographer heroes is unique, so are you.
It’s also true that everyone learns and develops their photography in different ways. For example, do you prefer to be a ‘hands-on just do it and if it doesn’t work, read the instruction manual’ person or are you more a ‘sit back, observe and then try it?’. Both are fine and each type needs a different approach.
So, my workshops are focused on you; how you see things; what you want to achieve; how you prefer to learn.
As a photographer who is also a qualified coach, I aim to combine my skills to help you to find the most effective and enjoyable way for you to learn and achieve your goals.
This is a personalised coaching day, working together in the field. The day will revolve around your specific needs, and be paced to meet your needs. To set a date, please contact me via the contact page. The location can be in the Chilterns, or at any location of your choice. If I travel to your locations then I add the cost of my travel.
This is a one-day experience working alongside me on one of my field trips. As my goal is creating pictures, time for coaching will be limited. You can learn by observing me at work and, of course, asking questions. You will also be able to make your own pictures using your own camera. You will see how I make my pictures; my decisions around selecting viewpoints, composition, choice of lens, choice of film, exposure and filtration.
This workshop is designed for people of all abilities and experience using their own cameras. It is a one-day workshop designed to ‘do what it says on the box’; to help you to improve your own perception of your photography. However, this workshop isn’t simply about technical stuff, lenses, or umpteen megapixel cameras. It’s designed for you as a creative photographer.
This one-day workshop is designed for people who want to find out about and have a go at Large Format photography. Your interest may be a search for the exceptional image quality that can be achieved only with a large format camera; or that you simply want to explore a new way of seeing the world; or that you just want to try something new.
