NEW WORKSHOPS & COURSES HEADING YOUR WAY!

I will be running a three-week workshop for beginners on Saturdays, 18th & 25th May, and 1st June from 2 - 4.30pm:

Week 1 - Starting from the beginning, we will work through the fundamentals of photography. We will combine practice and theory and try some fun techniques. A task will be set between sessions.

Week 2 - We will recap on what we learned in the first session, and look at each others pictures, offering a gentle critique and questioning what makes a good picture through discussing composition and the potential for strengthening shots. That will be followed by an independent-shooting session where I will be available to answer questions.

Week 3 - Without light there is no photography, so we will look at ways of utilising natural light, and considering other options. We will put theory into practice as we go. I will be leaving this session a little open, so I can adapt it to how participants want to progress.

There are many ways I have taught or furthered people’s knowledge in photography, including: giving a presentation to around eighty people at the British Association for Modern Mosaic's Forum with regard to photographing their work, led community groups, and by giving students a taste of an editorial-style shoot, at University of the Arts London - courses run several times a year.

I provide a lot of one-to-one tuition tailored to people's needs; whether it's for getting to grips with a new camera, or to help small business owners photograph their products effectively. I have also worked with a variety of community groups, from The Conservation Volunteers to Lloyd Park Heritage Group, offering general photography skills to people of all ages and abilities.

I help students on the Interior Styling course to understand how to place their props, taking into consideration space, lighting and angles to create a compelling shot.

I visited Sarah Stanley in her workshop in west London, where she creates beautiful mosaic works. Sarah is constantly creating new work and wanted an easy way to record stuff quickly, so we concentrated on mobile phone photography (never thought I would ever say that) and discussed the important elements such as light, positioning, and accessories for phone-photography!

Kids brave zero-degree weather to participate in this Teenage photography workshop.   Just a quick email to thank you for the teenage workshop. I know Mollie really enjoyed it, gained knowledge and confidence to pick up a camera and try new things. I really appreciate the time you spent with her and I’m sure that if you chose to run these classes again they will turn out to be very popular.    Parent of Participant

Whilst leading workshops for the Lloyd Park Heritage group in Walthamstow we re-anacted several pictures from the archive.    This image was taken following gale-damage in 1949. You can see below a report from the time and our re-anactment for the 21st century: notice how the Health and Safety act has effected working conditions. Also, mixed gender and more multi-cultural working habits as well as a strict no-smoking policy have changed the workplace significantly in 65 years.
