Taking digital photos is easy. But how often do you dare to turn off the Auto function on your camera? Together we can unlock the full potential of your creativity.

I have been photographing weddings for 10 years, and for the last 5 year, teaching people like you how to take control of their camera, and achieve results they didn’t think they were capable of.

Lessons can be run as a 1 to 1 or a group session – you choose.

Informal – inspiring – fun!

I run digital photography training workshops for complete beginners through to competent photographers looking to expand their knowledge.

Working in one of the UK’s most photogenic locations, I help you develop your natural photographer’s eye and discover your own unique style.

You will learn how to get the very best from your camera for shooting beautiful scenery, working with life models or simply capturing that special moment.

Workshops and courses

A full range of digital photography lessons and workshops for small groups (no more than five to ensure everyone gets full attention) and as 1-to-1 sessions.

From intensive 90-minute tutorials to full-day excursions, I can tailor your training workshop to your needs and preferred location.

Weekdays, evenings, weekends, in the city or out on location – whatever it takes to inspire your creativity!

York is a fantastic place to learn more about you and your camera. With an expert guide at your side, you’ll discover all kinds of photo opportunities you’ve never even noticed before!

 

Equipment

Perhaps you’ve been given an expensive camera and want to learn how to use it? Or maybe you simply want to master the camera on your smartphone? Either way, there is an ideal workshop or lesson for you.

Most people attend training with a Digital Single-Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera, but any camera with selective focusing and exposure controls is fine. I use a Canon 70D, with 10-18. 24-105L and 70-200L lenses.

My 1 to 1 lessons are either 2 hour introductions (£75) or 4 hours masterclass (£135). We cover as much as is needed to leave you confident and enthused. My 4 hour Masterclass also includes an editing lesson on Lightroom, which is an affordable and easy to use application. Just a few tweaks will transform your photography.

Masterclasses in York Leeds and Harrogate.

I now offer a Masterclass+ course, the same 1 to 1 thorough photography and editing lesson, with a 2 hour follow-up evening lesson, for just £200.

Wedding Photography

Weddings should be fun, not photoshoots!

 

I have a limited number of dates when I am available to shoot weddings. Please get in touch to check availability.

 

Known for my discreet style, I produce a perfect mix of stylish bride & groom and group shots (done quickly and painlessly!), and relaxed ‘reportage’ photos.

“Paul made the whole process so easy and stress free. Professional and experienced and made our special day perfect without feeling  aware of the photos being taken. He captured our special day and we would recommend him to anyone. Have a fab album to look back on could not be happier!” Liz and Daniel

 

“We wanted a wedding photographer that would capture our day in a relaxed and informal way. We found exactly what we wanted with Paul. He is so easy to get along with and talked through exactly what we wanted. He knew we were both rather uncomfortable posing for a photo so he caught really relaxed, happy photos of the Wedding and our guests, (we also asked for a few formal ones for the relatives that preferred a traditional wedding photo and he happily arranged for this too – nothing was too much trouble). The shots he took of our children having fun at the wedding were just amazing – he caught their personalities brilliantly. We have lost count of how many people have asked who our photographer was! During the Wedding, Paul was so discreet, we sometimes forgot he was there as we went about creating simply fantastic memories of our day. Thank you Paul. We are delighted with our Wedding photos”.  Tracey and Nigel

We contacted Paul at the last minute,due to our photographer cancelling on us. I knew Paul was great as he had done my sisters wedding a few years ago.
Straight away Paul said he would step in and even cancelled his plans for us. He was very easy to talk to and assured us that everything would be fine.
Paul arrived on time,was very friendly and made being photographed very natural.
Paul took some great photos and many of our guests commented on how nice and friendly he was.
Paul stayed for the whole day and really did capture some great memories. The album that he created for us is beautiful! We have also had some separate photos and you really can tell the quality of them.
I would not hestitate to recommend Paul to any of my friends and family.
