It’s been a busy few months since the first lockdown ended and we were able to start returning to some sort of normality, as always I’ve loved meeting and photographing such a wide range of inspiring business owners as well as some beautiful products. Sandwiched among all the photoshoots I’ve also had the pleasure of some lovely personal one to one training sessions, I find it incredibly rewarding and satisfying to help someone get to grips with their camera and ignite a love of photography that I hope will remain with them for many years.
My photography training sessions can cover a wide range of subjects and are tailored to my clients’ needs. We always schedule a telephone consultation prior to the training so that I can ensure they get the maximum benefit from our time together. The full day sessions run from 10am until 4pm so there’s plenty time to discuss the theory and start putting it into practice. The days are very relaxed and lots of fun, lunch is included and is often spent reviewing and discussing the morning’s images before we head back out to continue learning and shooting.

Over a period of weeks prior to the second lockdown I had the pleasure of spending time with a lovely lady and seeing her photography and her confidence grow. She had been going through a difficult time in her personal life and decided to book one of my special four day packages. She already owned a DSLR and wanted to learn how to use it so that she could benefit from the therapeutic nature of photography without the frustrations that can arise from not knowing the camera or understanding the basics. While she knew that she could find all the relevant information in books or online she also recognised that this was likely to be an extended learning process and full of frustration. Recognizing that she was the sort of person who learns well from personal tuition and guidance she booked a set of four lessons and spent one day a week with me. Each day was an in depth learning experience with time for questions, shooting and feedback. After each training session she spent time putting the learning into practice and the following week we were able to discuss her progress and resolve any difficulties she had encountered. Our days were mostly spent outdoors with nature providing props to help explain and demonstrate various concepts and it was an absolute joy to see my client’s skills and confidence growing each week.

I’m now taking bookings for 2021 for personal photography training sessions in Wiltshire, these can be either 1-2-1 or shared with a friend and can be for a single day session or a discounted block of four, further details can be found here.
Gift Vouchers are also available, if you are struggling for a Christmas present for that difficult to shop for loved one why not support a local business and give them a gift of knowledge that could bring a lifetime of pleasure.
