My background is in business administration and business management and I worked as a management consultant for a few years before becoming a full-time photographer. I am happy to help photographers and other small businesses in both photography related topics and also, possibly as importantly, on how to run a business. Photography, for a photographer, is of course essential. However, many great photographers are unable to get enough work and many average photographer are fully booked. Running a “photography business” is exactly this, balancing and becoming great at both the art of photography and the art of running a business.

A learning style that suits you

I prefer to teach on a one-to-one basis or in a small group setting as I find that I can spend more time with each person that way. However, I am happy to organise workshops if there is enough interest.

I am based in Berkshire and a majority of training sessions take place at my studio, however I can travel to you. Alternatively, if distance is an issue, we can also meet via Skype or Google hangouts. Most one-to-one sessions are a one day session, which is priced at £450 per session.

I also provide mentoring sessions, which are longer term sessions. They are generally a half day session and then 1-2 hour sessions every month. Prices will vary depending on your exact requirements and frequency, please contact me to discuss further.

What topics are covered in the training session?

Photography

  • How to shoot weddings
  • Light, Composition and layering
  • Editing and toning
  • What gear to use
  • What software and equipment you need
  • How to shoot in a documentary style
  • How to pose couples in a “natural” way
  • Any other topics you may want to discuss

Business

  • How to set up your photography business
  • Defining your business objectives and how to execute
  • Marketing & branding
  • A website that generate enquiries
  • Managing couples expectations
  • Running your business day-to-day
  • Any other topics you may want to discuss

I would love to hear from you if you would like to discuss further about your training. I genuinely believe that training is important and is continuous. Every year, I set time and budget to undertake training that I feel is going to help me improve my photography and my business.
