Create Something Extraordinary: From The Very Ordinary

I Teach You A Very Logical Approach To An Artistic Subject

Good photography is all about evoking emotions and creating a powerful experience for viewers. Photographs often fail for one fundamental, logical reason: Photographers don’t appreciate they create a product, and that product must benefit the end user, your viewer. How can you create a good photograph, if you don’t understand your viewer first, or factor them into the equation when you create your photograph? If you understand how viewers respond to pictures, you can control the viewers’ response when you create the picture, provided you learn the skills to create visually. You manipulate the viewer visually, to generate a more powerful response emotionally. Improving requires learning about your viewer. If you don’t intend to have a viewer – Why do photography?

A Professional Photographer: Over 35 Years Of Experience

A Lifetime Dedicated To Photography: Trust In My Expertise And Knowledge, I’ve Done The Job

With over 35 years of experience as a professional working photographer, I have transitioned into teaching photography workshops. My career began with Reuters News Agency in London, where I worked as a hard news photographer. From there, I ventured into the high-end world of corporate photography, creating advertising photographs for corporate annual reports on a global scale; a career which culminated in being responsible for documenting the enormous £4 billion, Heathrow Airport, Terminal 5 construction project in London. Through my extensive experience and a diverse range of clients, I have refined my skills to create impactful pictures which tell a compelling story. A long career that led me to photograph the Royal Family and Princess Diana over 100 times, and then 11 Heads of State, with shoots for papers like the New York Times, Washington Post, and more.

Don’t Believe The Hype: Social Media ‘Experts’ Deceive You

The Importance Of Proper Photography Education: Empowering Enthusiasts With Knowledge

Digital photography has brought photography to everyone, but has also given rise to unqualified “experts” offering bad advice. Most social media influencers, YouTubers; even the workshop tutors have no work experience doing photography as a job. They deceive enthusiasts by pretending to be a professional. Their influence has flooded the world with literal, generic-looking photography. The least qualified to teach, dominate photographic knowledge and education. Self-proclaimed experts have corrupted how to approach photography and dumbed down photography. They all prescribe the same superficial approach and Lightroom workflow, so no wonder all their pictures look the same. The real world is not the bubble they live in and sell to you. Poor photographs only appeal to other photographers on a technical level, good photographs appeal to everyone on an emotional level. The knowledge you need is way beyond their ability. Creativity needs knowledge.

Photographers Fail To Appreciate: They Create A Product

All Products Have 3 Components: Product, Purpsoe, End User – Photography Is No Different  – The Iceberg Analogy

The Product – The Photograph.

Photographers prioritize themselves over their viewers. Mistake. The viewer is the priority because they are the ‘End User’; all they see is your photograph. The photographer has the memories of the experience; all irrelevant to the viewer. A good product must account for the photographs ‘Purpose’ and the ‘End User’.

The Purpose – The Benefit.

We do not use any products that have no purpose, they provide no benefit. Photography is no different. The principal benefit isn’t from seeing the subject of the photograph but from the mental stimulation seeing the subject triggers, which then results in an emotional response in the viewer. The response is the purpose.

The End User – The Viewer.

If you understand how all viewers respond to pictures, you can then control the viewers’ response when you create the picture, provided you learn the skills to create visually. You manipulate viewers visually, to generate a powerful response emotionally. You can’t create a good Product without knowing the End User.

How Do You Create Your Own Artistic Style?

I teach you a structured workflow, not a preset style to copy my artistic style. Your own personal style emerges by applying your personal choices to every creative decision in the workflow The workflow is a template to give your photography a repeatable structure to create artistic quality. It doesn’t dictate your style.

The Photography Workshop.

You Learn: The Artistic Principles, Digital Photography, Photoshop Retouching, AND my Workflow. All in one comprehensive photography workshop.
All fully documented with workshop notes and images.

Embrace The Opportunity: One Workshop Changes Everything

I Teach You Everything You Need – The Artistic Principles, Photography, Photoshop & Workflow

I offer one comprehensive photography workshop, either online or in-person. Both have identical content and aims. Workshops are all one-to-one tuition with no preset dates, all being booked on demand. Online tuition is all live, not pre-recorded. Photoshop is used but you don’t need to be an expert, just comfortable with basic Photoshop logic and layout, I teach you the rest. All workshops teach three core subjects: Artistic Principles, Landscape Photography, and Photoshop Retouching. A ‘one-stop education’ in photography, teaching every aspect of photography and the complete workflow to create artistic pictures. Workshops are broken down into small modules, each module is then broken down into smaller, easy-to-learn steps. When you complete the workshop, you will understand the artistic principles behind making good pictures, along with the photography and Photoshop skills to do so. The workflow is the basis for discovering your own, unique artistic style.

Don’t Let Intimidation Hold You Back: You Can Learn This

I Walk You Through Every Step Of The Process, Together. Read My Tutorial: ‘What You Learn’

When you look at my photographs, you may feel they are way beyond your current ability. That is because you are looking at the final ‘product’ and feel intimidated. Nobody has taught you all the fundamental stepping stones you need, to create the ‘product’ correctly, and you certainly won’t find it with social media ‘experts’. Step out of your comfort zone and have faith. Everything I teach is broken down into small easy-to-learn steps, with a logical structure and an explainable reason. My question to you is, Why wouldn’t you be able to learn it? Every step is practiced, documented, and is never ambiguous, everything has a logical reason. You’ll receive workshop notes, personal notes, layered Photoshop files, and video recordings of every session if the workshop is online. I’m available for follow-up advice, answer questions, and critique your images afterward.
