Photography tuition

I have been providing photography tuition since 2002. These have ranged from short 3 hour courses around Glasgow & Edinburgh to week long courses on the Isle of Skye and dotted around Scotland.

I run relaxed sessions that are both enjoyable and informative. This will help you gain confidence in the skills you already have while showing you how to improve your compositional & technical abilities. This will see you begin to start thinking about how to construct a photograph in your head before touching your camera.

Public photography courses

I run a number of courses through the year on a range of topics which have in the past included urban & landscape photo walks as well as master classes on working with architecture, street, landscapes, water, texture, formal gardens and flowers.

You can view upcoming courses on Eventbrite and book to secure your place.

Courses will always be subject to the weather being suitable and some courses have a minimum number of participants in order to take place.

Private photography tuition

If you are wanting tuition for yourself or a small group, carefully tailored to your specific interests and the environment you want to learn in, this is the ideal option. For dedicated one on one tuition where all the attention is on your current level of ability and the specific aspects of photography you want to work on, to small groups of 2 to 4 people, I will consider your interests, experience and the aspects you wish to improve before suggesting a couple of options that may suit. Once the overall structure has been agreed on, a more careful plan of the tuition session will be proposed.

The cost, per person, for private photography tuition is shown below. These costs are based on modest travel time and cost from my home location near Glasgow. Requests for tuition sessions further afield will be considered and a quote provided, with fees beyond those below being explained. The half day option will be in the region of 3 to 4 hours while the full day will be around 6 to 8 hours. The precise timing will depend on the location, nature of the course, changing weather and fatigue of those present.

I will consider private tuition for larger groups, though the greater the number of people present, the less time I can provide to each person individually. I will provide a cost for the group once I have considered your request.
