Workshops

Over the past 10 years I've been committed to developing my knowledge and expertise in photography.  I'm experienced in shooting with both digital and analogue equipment and I've acquired years of hands on experience shooting commercially as a Freelance Photographer.  I believe my unique insight into photography will help new Photographers enhance their skills and provide the best possible foundations for the path to creating great photography work.

1 Day - Master film photography

Have you ever seen a photo that looked absolutely stunning and stood out? A photo that was rich in colour tones and looked effortlessly cinematic together with a delicate softness?  Chances are you were looking at a film photo shot with either 35mm or 120mm film.  

It's no secret, I love film photography! So much so, that It's all I professionally shoot with. To date, every single paid commissioned shoot I have ever had, has been shot with film.  Now do you want to know the thing that ALL Photographers know but rarely tell you? When it comes to final results and originality, we all know that film is better than digital.

Now how about you start a path into professional photography and ...guess what...you will know how to shoot with film?

My 1 Day 'Master Film Photography' Workshop is your chance to benefit from my extensive knowledge of shooting with film. The workshop will entail a theory session in the morning where we will cover in detail everything you need to know to get started on the path to shooting exceptional film shots and not only that I will be giving you tips on camera's to purchase and the best film on the market. The afternoon workshop will be entirely practical where you will be given assignments and we will experiment with double exposures, light leaks, pushing the film and a variety of other creative techniques used by the Masters of Film down the ages. I will be on hand throughout the practical assignments to provide assistance and direction.
