I have been running photography courses now since around 2008.
One of the longest running courses is Photoclub in the Pub, a 6 month long creative photography course with 5 creative assignments. We meet once a month in the pub to discuss each assignment and do a slideshow of everyone's images. Photoclub in the Pub also has other benefits such as reduced prices on other courses, prints of your images and video screencast feedback on your images.
Photoclub is been really successful for us but we were finding that some people wanted some of the action but couldn't get to the pub meetings, either because they were not local or just busy on that night. This is when we came up with the idea of the online version of Photoclub in the Pub which we call Creative Assignments.Read More
Another successful Introduction to Photography Course in London and another great bunch of people. Everyone went away with a greater understanding of their camera and some nice photos from the day too.Read More
This is my review of the 3 Legged Thing 'Brian' tripod or to give it it's full name, the X1.1 Brian Evolution 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod System with AirHed 1 Black.
I have now had the tripod a few weeks and have had several opportunities to use it and these are my observations.Read More
I was recently comissioned to write and deliver a 2 day bespoke photogrpahy course for a wind farm company.
This is was something really different to what I normally do with my photography training but something a really loved doing.
The company wanted to be able to take very detailed photographs of the wind turbine blades to aid the inspection process. The blades can get damaged over time with lightening strikes, bird strike or just general wear and tear. Being able to take high quality and high resolution images of the blade makes that inspection process easier and can also act as a record of their condition for digital reports.Read More

It's a busy time at the moment with people ordering photography courses as gifts for their loved ones. This is today's batch just off to the post office.
I've been busy producing the vouchers, the voucher wallets and packing them all together in lovely presentation gift boxes. The gift boxes have been really well received.
There is still time to order photography courses as gift vouchers and receive them in time for Christmas.Read More
I have been running photography courses since early 2008 and my gift vouchers have always proved popular, whether it's for a birthday, anniversary or Christmas.
When purchasing gift vouchers you are obviously purchasing a service and not a physical gift as such, but when you part with money for a gift you want to be able to hand over something that looks nice to represet your gift. So this year I have added these lovely presentation boxes, voucher wallet/cards and gift vouchers so you have something special to give that special person.Read More
Because I run photography courses for a living I am often getting asked for advice on what equipment to purchase, especially when it comes to cameras.
Sometimes this question comes from someone who doesn't yet have a camera at all or is looking to upgrade from a compact or bridge camera.
If you don't yet have a camera to speak of, maybe just a mobile phone. Then you will be facing the decision of which type of camera to go for. My advice is fairly simple, if you think that you might want to develop an interest in photography and produce some really good quality images, then it has to be either an SLR (Single Lens Reflex) or a CSC (Compact System Camera).Read More
