121 Mentoring Training / Studio

121 Mentoring Training can be taken Monday-Friday during office hours.

This form of training is usually for individuals who have aspirations to become a professional photographer or wish to really push their skills to the next level.

By taking regular sessions it keeps your knowledge and learning fresh and it means we can build on this every session. Because mentoring involves booking a block of sessions it means you can also save money.

There are many topics we can cover in these 121 Mentoring Sessions and we can cover these things when it’s appropriate to do so.

Some example topics that we can cover:

  • Camera Learning
    Learn about your SLR our Mirrorless Camera

  • Software Learning
    Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop

  • Flash/Speedlight Photography
    On and Off-Camera Flash Tuition

  • Studio Lighting
    Product or Portrait Lighting with off-camera flash and studio lights

  • Portraiture
    Using natural or artificial light with a model

  • Colour Management & Printing
    Achieve consistent and true colour results in your workflow

  • Website Building
    A website is an essential tool for a photographer and in this training we build you a great looking website together.

  • Marketing & Business
    It might be the boring part, but having the correct insurance and knowing how to market yourself are essential to running a successful photography business..

For 121 Mentoring Training the sessions will be taken at my studio in Crowborough, East Sussex.






The length of the course completely depends on what you need to learn and how quickly you want to learn it. Normally I would recommend that the training sessions have a frequency of somewhere between once a week and once a month. Of course if that doesn't fit in with your schedule than we can work around that.

The individual lessons need to be taken in at least 2 hour sessions. You can book your sessions in 5 hour blocks, the more you book, the more you save.

The Annex, 1 Brookfield Villas, Crowborough Hill, Crowborough, East Sussex TN6 2EG

1-2-1 and 1-2-2 tuition is usually run from my studio in Crowborough, East Sussex.
Crowborough is close to the Kent & Sussex border, near Tunbridge Wells.

Getting there:
My studio is easily reached by road or rail.

Crowborough is on the London Bridge to Uckfield train line and it takes approximately 1 hour from London Bridge to Crowborough, direct. My studio is just a 1 minute walk from Crowborough Train Station.

I do only have one parking space at my studio so it’s best to check with me first if you can park at the studio. However there is a free public carpark at Jarvis Brook Recreation Ground which has short and long stay parking. This is just a 1 minute walk to my studio.

There are further directions, including a map on my Contact page here.


This workshop is for beginners to advanced photographers who to advance their skills, possibly with the view to becoming a professional photographer.


This workshop is for those who are using a cameras such as:

  • Digital SLR (DSLR)

  • Mirrorless Cameras (CSC)


If you are wishing to learn how to use your camera and have little or no prior knowledge then I suggest 3 hour session would be a great start. Some people may well want a longer session or come back for further sessions. If you are unsure at all, please do give me a call to discuss.

There are also discounts available for taking a block booking of sessions. A lot of people take this up if they wish to continue their learning in a mentoring style. Please ask for details of this discount, dedicated page coming soon for mentoring.

Once booked please just get in touch to arrange a convenient date and time for your training. I can usually fit people in within 2-3 weeks on weekdays.
