1 Day Beginners Photo Workshop
Mudeford Quay, Dorset, UK (April - September 2020)
Sometimes you get a good one, sometimes it's too dark or bright. Sometimes it's just disappointing and doesn't match the scene. Frustrating isn't it?
I can cure this pain for you.
Spend a day with me and photographers just like you in this beautiful seaside location - and I'll prove it.

Very inspiring. I understand so much more, but know there's loads more to learn. Bring It On!!
Very enjoyable day and an excellent tutor made things simple to understand
Excellent day - even when the weather was rubbish I learned so much
There are beautiful images all around us - the trick is being able to see and execute them.
There are three things that’ll improve your photography 100% - understanding light, composition and choosing the right lens (or zoom) for the shot you’re taking. And best of all you don’t need an expensive camera to do it.
Maximum of 10 people per workshop so I have time for everyone.
9.30 am: Meet and greet in front of The Haven House Inn
9.45 am: Tutorial session includes
- Why cameras get it wrong
- Controlling exposure
- How to use different lenses and zooms for brilliant photos
- Simple strategy for amazing compositions
By the end of the morning you’ll have learnt to manage these things.
1.00pm: Lunch (not included): This will be in the pub or café and is a great opportunity to chat about photography, compare images from the morning and ask questions.
2.00pm: Practise your new skills in this beautiful location with its beach huts, boats, views of the quay, Needles Rocks and Christchurch Harbour. I’ll be on hand throughout to mentor, coach and answer questions. See gallery below.
