Group Workshops

Bookings are now being taken for my programme of workshops.

All of my workshops cater for photographers with a wide variety of interests, needs, knowledge and experience. For more information click on the titles below:-

The coronavirus outbreak has obviously impacted on my planned programme of workshops scheduled for 2020. Travel restrictions have unfortunately required that some have had to be cancelled or postponed. If you are booked on one of my workshops, masterclasses or One2Ones and haven't yet heard from me then please assume that they are still proceeding as planned. I am obviously keeping a regular watch on the changing situation and reviewing my plans with government guidance & advice in mind as well as the health & safety of my customers.

I am currently planning how I can continue to offer development support, advice and guidance online and will shortly be offering a range of options including One2One coaching & mentoring, online image reviews, presentations on a variety of topics as well as publishing books in PDF format.

I also plan to get back to writing my blog posts again. Due to my heavy travel schedule in the last 2-3 years I have neglected my blogs for sometime now so I have appreciated the reminders some of you have given me about this - it's nice to know that you valued them and have noticed their absence; thank you!

I hope that you keep safe, well and positive in these difficult times.

 

I am trying to look beyond the immediate impact of the coronavirus on us all to a time when hopefully life will have returned to some degree of normality. with this in mind I am starting to plan my own personal photo projects and trips for 2021 - thinking about what it will be like to be able to roam freely with my camera in hand again is one of the things that has helped me stay sane. I am also planning workshops for next year in the hope that in 2021 I will be able to return to work with groups of fellow photographers on location to share my knowledge, expertise and passion for photography and the world around us.

I am currently planning a varied programme of workshops next year and as more details become available I will post them below.

In addition to my workshop programme I will be continuing to offer One2Ones for individuals where the location, timing and programme are designed to meet their specific requirements. I will also run a couple of Masterclasses during the year, each designed for a small group of advanced photographers who are looking to be challenged and supported in developing their photography further.

I am co-leading this 8 day/7 night workshop with Kevin Raber and we will be there to offer guidance & support based on our many years of experience photographing across the world. We look forward to sharing our knowledge, insights and passion for photography as we tour these wonderful islands.

The trip will offer an amazing opportunity to explore the landscapes of the magnificent Faroe Islands. Situated in the North Atlantic about halfway between Norway and Iceland the Faroes are comprised of 18 rocky, volcanic islands connected by road tunnels, ferries, causeways and bridges.It's a dramatic and windswept landscape with mountains, valleys, grassy heathland and steep coastal cliffs that are home to thousands of seabirds. The small villages dotted around the islands also make great places to find interesting and unique images. I have been there three times since 2014 and have always returned home with a collection of images that please me.

For more information and to book a place please visit the Rockhopper Workshops page.

WHEN

18th to the 28th July 2021

With Steve Gosling and Kevin Raber

Having visited South Georgia and Antarctica back in 2016 I am really excited about going back there again next year. My previous visit had a deep impact on me - a month after my return I wrote the following in my journal, "I can't get Antarctica and South Georgia out of my head. I'm constantly thinking about the places we visited, the people I travelled with, the sights I saw and the sound of silence. The stillness and the quiet will remain with me forever - only the sound of the wind and the Penguins & Seals broke that silence; a haunting, beautiful silence. I miss that so much. It's a place that has touched my heart." It was undoubtedly a trip of a lifetime and was the earthly equivelent of photographic heaven.

Join us next year on the small polar expedition ship, Ocean Nova to witness incredible landscapes and amazing wildlife. More information about the trip (including a video from our 2016 visit) can be found on the Rockhopper Workshops page.

You can also see some of my images from the 2016 trip in the 'A Beautiful Silence' galleries on my Portfolio pages (Monochrome and Colour).

WHEN

9th to the 29th November 2021

 

With Steve Gosling and Mark Banks

Venice is my favourite city in the world - romantic, magical and incredibly picturesque. I have visited many times but never fail to marvel at the beauty and atmosphere of the place. I particularly like to visit in winter - there are fewer people around, the light & weather conditions are more visually interesting and the days are shorter meaning that we can spend more time photographing the city in the hours of darkness; for it is then that the mood & mystery of the city seems to emanate from every dimly lit alleyway, half concealed doorway, mist filled piazza or the dark canals that weave their way across the city.

We are currently finalising the details for this all inclusive trip but if you would like to register your interest and be one of the first to get more infomation as well as the opportunity to pre-book your place before the workshop is more widely advertised then please This email address is being protected from spambots.
