Heavily visual and interactive with plenty of examples and insider tips, we take a show-not-tell approach to teaching, guiding you through the more creative elements of photography; so you understand how to make your work stand out and learn how the best images are made. 

In just two hours every Wednesday evening, you’ll be guided step-by-step on the best ways to take your photography forward. 

No prior experience is necessary and whether you are a beginner, have no formal education in photography or simply want to expand your creative skills, these workshops are designed for you.
