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!


You don’t have to restrict yourself to the city either. Within an hour of York lie all kinds of fantastic photo locations, from the Dales and the Moors to beautiful houses like Castle Howard.




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 a 4 hour Masterclass (£135) (including drinks). 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.


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 £245.
