As a professional photographer and a mum to two lovely boys, I know just how much fun and how rewarding photography can be.
These days almost everyone has a camera but not everyone is confident in how they use them.
As a mum and a family photographer, I also love helping busy parents learn how to take great family photos when they haven’t got a professional there to do it for them.
I’m not a ‘techie’ photographer, after a City in Guilds training, my career started with a newspaper picture desk; I soon learnt some tricks of the trade - helping me to capture the images quickly, but the 15 years of experience since working as a commercial and family photographer have taught me far more valuable lessons in working with light and people.
Apart from teaching you how to get more from your camera I will teach you how to look for and use the best light. You will also learn some of my secret tips - helping you to get the best natural expressions and capture those special moments.
Training is 1-2-1, but I can work with groups. I take school workshops and have a DBS certificate (previously known as a CRB certificate) Please get in touch I'm happy to work out a session/programme around your needs.
For those budding photographers in your life, gift vouchers are available. These can be custom designed to whatever you would like to include in your package.
Or, if your interested in ditching the digital for a day, you could go old-skool and try some 'pinhole' photography training. Not recommended for taking photographs of children (unless they are prepared to sit still for over 30 seconds!).
These sessions require a bit more organising but they are great fun and could be a fantastic idea for an unusual birthday present or ‘Gift Experience’. Contact me for more details, gift vouchers are available.
