I am offering a reduced workshop programme for the first half of 2016 as I have recently had an operation on my hip (which will take me out of action for about 6-8 weeks). However I hope to be back out with my camera by the end of March.
I am now finalising my workshop programme for the remainder of 2016 and details of these workshops will appear on this page as they are firmed up. This will include some Olympus one day workshops and one (possibly two) all inclusive 3 day Masterclass workshops with a small group of photographers at each event (maximum number of people 3). The Masterclasses will be designed for advanced/experienced photographers who want to immerse themselves in a workshop designed to discuss and explore the philosophy, aesthetics and principles of photography

Bespoke workshops for groups (with the programme, location and date agreed with you) are also available. Please contact me for more information.

1 and 2 day workshops catering for photographers of all abilities who want to improve their flower & plant photography including workshops on macro photography and creativity.
For the last few years I have run a programme of workshops for Olympus UK to give participants the chance to get the best out of their Olympus equipment under my guidance and tuition. These days will continue to be offered in 2016 at various locations in the UK.
I am pleased to announce that I have been asked to be an instructor on the Luminous Landscape workshop to South Georgia and Antarctica. This will be a trip of a lifetime to an extraordinary landscape that offers stunning sunrises & sunsets, a unique photographic rich landscape (icebergs, waterfalls, abandoned whaling stations will provide varied subject matter) and the opportunity to shoot the wildlife (e.g. seals, penguins and numerous species of birds).
9th to 29th November, 2016
I am planning an extensive and exciting set of workshops for 2017. This will include: -
A 4 day workshop with Neil Buchan Grant in Budapest
Following on from our succesful 3 day workshops in Venice (2014) and Berlin (2015) Neil and I are planning an extended event in Budapest in 2017. It's a wonderful location offering a variety of architecture, the picturesque River Danube and of course our usual opportunity to photograph professional models under Neil's skilled supervision and guidance. We will also include some candid street photography for good measure. It will be a unique mix of street, urban landscape and people photography as well as the opportunity to have help and advice on post processing.
3 day workshops with Mark Banks
Mark and I have run a number of workshops together now in various parts of the UK. We are planning to run further events in 2017 - locations and timing still to be decided. More infornation to follow.
3 day Masterclasses
My plan is to offer a couple of 3 day Masterclasses in 2017 in the UK. These will be all inclusive events with numbers strictly limited to 3 participants. They will be aimed at experienced/advanced photographers who are looking to spend time on developing their photography further. The emphasis will be on principles, approach and aesthetics rather than concentrating on techniques.
A workshop in Kolkata, India
Further details for each one of the above will be publisjed here as they become available.
With Steve Gosling & Peter Cox
An all inclusive, two centre workshop I am running with acclaimed Irish landscape photographer Peter Cox. Peter and I have co-led workshops for the last five years and whilst our styles of photography are different we share a common love of the landscape and the power of photography to tell a story. It is also rumoured that we both have a sense of humour so our workshops are usually fun as well as instructive!
Glencoe and Skye are two of my favourite UK locations for landscape photography as they offer diverse and dramatic photographic opportunities - from the openess of Rannoch Moor to the drama of the Cuillins, from the historic Castle Stalker to the rugged Quirang.
The workshop includes tuition, accommodation, food and transport (including airport pick up and drop off at Glasgow).
18th May to 27th May 2017.
