Derby Photography Training


I am now offering simple 1-to-1 training classes for people who have a DSLR camera but would like personal guidance on how to use their camera more effectively and to be in control of it to deliver their creative wishes.

I have a number of years experience in taking photographs in many circumstances, but primarily natural, journalistic subjects. image galleries

My intention will be to lead you through thinking about the photograph that you want to take, and how to manage the basic principles of photography, and the features within the camera to achieve that. My personal view is that good photography is principally about creativity – the camera is then just the tool to achieve that. It is about experience, trying things, and making mistakes.

It is not about mathematics, rules, physics, digital manipulation, or lots of equipment.

Key subjects I will cover:

– Managing the creative benefits and compromises between Aperture / shutter speed / ISO / Flash

– Focussing / Exposure

– What makes a good photograph?

– Use of RAW format / basic software adjustments.

My price will be £60 for a 3 hour session ( plus travelling expenses) for 1 person. Pricing for larger groups can be provided on request. Maximum group size 4.

After the session I will continue to offer “over the phone” guidance and support, for “free”. If a follow-up session is required then this would be charged on an hourly basis.

If you think that this might be something you would be interested in please email me at and then we can discuss your personal requirements.

Thanks very much for your interest
