The London Photography Course is the most recent workshop I offer. I’m really excited about holding it in London as each workshop is different and less structured than my other workshops. As each day is so different we will need to keep a sharp eye out for potential photographic opportunities!
The focus is on landscape and travel photography. The aim is to harness your skills with the camera by presenting you with different challenges throughout the day including action, street, and landscape photography. Of course, all the techniques learned can be used in other genres of photography.
I will guide you through the techniques and help you to improve your photographic eye so you begin to “make” your photographs rather than “take” them.
6 Hour workshop.
We meet and go through all the controls of your camera over a cup of tea. Once the technical aspects have been covered, we venture out into London to put all the theory into practice.
Throughout the day, I give, hands-on, in-the-field tutorials to help you master the techniques and am alongside you every step of the way! We finish with a sunset shoot (where our tripods come in handy) then edit your favourite photographs taken from the day, where I show you some basic post-editing techniques.
Here are a ‘behind-the-scenes’ blog I did on one of my London Photography Courses
'We were lucky to have John capture our wedding a few years ago and the images captured my imagination and made me finally go out and buy a camera… I had a play around but got nowhere, so booked a couple of private lessons with John on the basics and also joined a landscape group lesson in Oxford. Best money I ever spent – turned my expensive camera into an investment that I could use and enjoy and now I am hooked. I would recommend John to anyone who wants to learn to love photography… John’s style is relaxed, he is very knowledgeable and is a pleasure to be around, as he is centred upon making sure you enjoy taking great pictures'.
'John's informal style and intuitive understanding of what you need makes the one-to-one photography workshop both fun and informative. If you are thinking of doing a course, let me vouch for John as a natural teacher with insane levels of knowledge. I can't rate him highly enough'.
“I was looking for some photography classes in the Oxford area, I was particularly interested in learning more about the technical side of photography. I came across John’s website whilst searching on Google. I was immediately impressed with his work and loved his style of imagery. I booked a 1:1 session with John, and I am so pleased I did. The knowledge he shared with me has been so beneficial to my work and to the growth on my photography business. There wasn’t anything John didn’t know, or couldn’t help me with. I learnt so much in the short time I spent with him. We spoke about the theoretical side of things and then followed that through with practical exercises, this really helped me to learn and remember what he had taught me. Since my initial 1:1 I have had another session with John, and again he was great at understanding some of the issues I was experiencing and helped me to learn how to correct these. I would recommend anyone who is interested in Photography to have a workshop with him, he really has helped me develop and learn a lot as a newly set up photographer. John has great knowledge across the fields of photography and whether you are interested in either the creative side of things, or the technical, he will be sure to help you develop in either area.”
