Improve your photography skills with topic-based classes over 6 months.

The masterclass is an introduction to many genres of photography – landscape, portraiture, night and astro-photography, abstract, macro, sports, street and documentary photography, black and white, food, wildlife, architectural and still life. It runs every other week from either September to March or January to June and is for up to 6 people. There is a one hour tutorial on a genre with help on your camera buttons/techniques, and a 10 minutes per person photo critique of the groups homework photographs. Consider it like a 6 month group mentoring. There is an additional Flickr challenge taking daily photographs on a theme, with online critique.

The next 6 month masterclass is commencing January to June 2021 and I am now accepting bookings. This is planned to be run totally online given the covid situation. Meetings will be held on zoom.

Subject to demand I can run another Masterclass during the day time, last year it was Monday mornings but it can be tailored to the time that best suits course members.

Optional extra after the course – ‘Make your own photo book’ of the images (separate fee). It will run for 2 sessions, with tuition on how to use the software and put the book together to show off your photographs.



  • I have enjoyed learning in a small group setting.  The course encouraged me to work beyond my comfort zone in the wide variety of photo genres which we have looked at.  I particularly enjoyed the macro section which otherwise I would never have explored (and I took some great photos even if I say so myself!)   The homework has enthused me to get out and take even more photos than usual.


  • I gained the knowledge and understanding as I progressed through the course to explore other aspects of photography. It has made me realise there is no limit to your abilities and imagination, enjoying and exploring different spheres of photography.

    I now have the confidence to shoot different areas of photography weighing up different angles of your subject and the importance of composition and using natural light.
