Lakeland Photo Centre

Cumbria, Lancashire, Northumberland, Yorkshire, Scotland

Learn to take photos like a Pro - with a Pro! I run individual and small group photography experiences tailored to suit the expectations, skills and knowledge of my clients. Mostly in the Lake District, but also further afield for subject specific experiences (e.g particular locations, wildlife species, sports events, etc). Rather than rigidly stick to scripted 'one size fits all' templates, I prefer to draw on 25 years experience as a business trainer and 10 years as a professional photographer, to select whichever tools and methods best help YOU to understand and improve YOUR photography, with YOUR camera.

My Training sessions are entirely tailored to what you want to learn. It doesn’t matter if you are new to it or if you have been doing it a while and want some help with specifics. The day is yours to learn what you need to learn. We start the day at 10am and finish at 4pm.

We can cover all aspects of photography including newborn, maternity, child and sitter sessions. I will help you structure your training so you can get the best out of it.

Manchester Photography Training

Manchester, Lancashire

All of the courses are taught and have been written, researched and planned by myself. So you are in the best hands possible. There are no more than 6 students on every course. This allows each student to have a fantastic learning experience and doesn’t allow anyone to get left out. There are courses for all levels of photographer from the beginner through to the advanced. 1 to 1 photography courses, off camera flash courses and bespoke courses are also available.
Most of the courses are held in Castlefield, Manchester using a training room at the YMCA as a base.
