Photography Workshops, Training and Experiences

I love to share my passion for studio photography and run intensive but fun studio days in Brighton, East Sussex. These workshops are for small groups of photographers and cater for beginner’s and seasoned veterans. Each workshop follows a different theme, from headshot photography, creative portraiture, dance photography, and even a series of masterclasses based on the techniques of the likes of Irving Penn! Please do sign up for my newsletter as it is the best way to keep up with these workshops and find one that might suit you!


A new series of workshops is being developed for 2024, with one workshop being planned for each month. Plans are a foot to expand provision into Eastbourne and London! Please use the form at the bottom of the page to register your interest!
