Lanzarote is a small, Spanish, volcanic island off the coast of North West Africa. Its dramatic black landscapes punctuated by pristine white villages, rugged coastline, majestic volcanoes, and flourishing wine region make it an absolute haven for photographers. Take a glimpse at the images and video below, and you'll quickly understand the allure.

The picturesque town of Teguise (not to be confused with the tourist hub of Costa Teguise) was once capitol of the island and today is home to what is in my opinion, the best bakery in the world - JonnieBakes. Previous students often ask if we can shoot Teguise again!

If you love a unique landscape, you'll love photographing Lanzarote.

Who's it for?

All levels of photographer from beginner to experienced wanting to have a photographic adventure  set against one of the world's most captivating backdrops. The program includes on-location guidance and insightful instruction, guaranteeing substantial learning and a great time amongst like minded people.

Where we're based - and what we do

We're based out of the old port area of Puerto Del Carmen which is only fifteen minutes by taxi from the airport. 

Starting early for sunrise, we'll journey across the island, chasing the perfect light and weather conditions. Midday, when the light gets harsh, we'll regroup for image reviews and feedback sessions. We'll resume shooting mid afternoon. Sunset shoots in a variety of locations will wrap up each day before heading back to Puerto Del Carmen in the evenings.

Your tutor at a glance

I'm flattered to have been called the UK's friendliest Photography Expert (Thanks 500px!).  

I'm proud to have made hundreds of videos and spent thousands of hours teaching people like you to see more beauty in the world every day (and to capture that beauty), by thinking like a photographer. 

My YouTube channel has served more than 26 Million views and has more than 260,000 subscribers.

I've appeared on TV shows and been asked to speak at some of the best photography events on earth, such as:

  • Xposure International Photography Festival, Sharjah, UAE
  • The Photography Show, Birmingham, UK

I've enjoyed a wonderful career as a photographer, presenter and teacher. I even trained as a teacher so that I could reach my full potential and enable others to reach theirs.

As a photographer, I'm proud to have won multiple awards: 

  • Petapixel TopTen Youtube Trainers list
  • x3 Xposure International Photography Festival Awards
  • x1 Fuji Commercial - x2 Fuji Wedding
  • Kodak Gold Award
  • x14 Master Photographers Association Awards

And I've been lucky to have had exhibitions at prestigious venues such as:

  • The Master Photographers Association
  • Royal Photographic Society
  • Romanian Embassy (London)
  • Xposure Photography Festival - others...

When not teaching photography I also speak at events for photographers and businesses alike and have written for publications such as:

  • Ephotozine
  • DSLR User magazine
  • Professional Photographer
  • Photography Monthly - others...

Trumping all of this, my proudest achievement to date is the huge number of wonderful 5* reviews on Trustpilot and Google - written by people like you after completing my courses. This is what inspires me to continue creating courses to help more people fall in love with photography.

Fun Fact: I still love playing with big machines and work part time as relief plant machinery operator for New Milton Sand and Ballast.
