- Creating a stunning photograph isn’t about having an expensive camera or all the right gear. It’s about taking inspiration from what you see and genuinely capturing the moment. Through Northumberland Photo Training I teach the art of natural photography. I’ll share my enthusiasm for the natural world and show you how to focus on the ‘life’ in a landscape. You’ll learn about atmosphere and light, how to see the potential in a location and take beautiful photographs which document the narrative in front of you. I offer bespoke photo workshops to suit all skill levels and interests – from the basics of digital photography through to advanced techniques and digital post-production, which is taught in a purpose-built computer suite using Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. Tuition is provided for small groups or on a one-to-one basis and across a wide range of topics. The courses start from £65 for a 1:1, 3 hour PhotoTrail.
