Full enjoyment of your camera comes from full control of your camera & this is what the workshops are designed to teach you. 
Most workshops & Youtube videos work on the basis you will take one shot, make adjustments & take another then another & then another until you finally have an image you are happy with. This is no use to anyone because moments are fleeting & the majority of the time you will get one chance to get the exact image you really want.

This workshop will show you how that is achieved, you will learn things even other educators don't know!

All of the shots you see on this page were one shot & that's how it should be! 

Maybe the difference between a camera owner & photographer is being able to do this...

This workshop will teach you what is needed to be a photographer.


We run our workshop at Christchurch in Dorset, a lovely town with the opportunity for landscape, portrait, street, seascape, nature & architecture photography.

The workshops are held on Saturdays 9am - 4pm. £150 per person with a maximum of 10 people.

We will start the day with controlling your camera. The physics behind camera control is no more difficult than the physics needed to use a seesaw, It's all about balance. This will all be explained on the day & you may be surprised how easy it actually is!

We will then stop briefly for lunch 
( not included ). After lunch will be your opportunity to get creative & see it all come together. I will be on hand every step of the way.

Self learning via Youtube may seem appealing BUT remember Youtube is completely unregulated & literally anyone can do a video on photography...




"I recently took Chris' course. I have been taking photos for years but the course made me realise I knew very little about my camera & how to use it. The course take you back to basics & now I have the knowledge to do so much more. I would definitely recommed Chris' course"

"I got a camera a few years ago & I did a Jessops course & it didn't really stick in my head so I signed up to Chris' course & he makes sure you understand what he has taught you & does re-caps. I have learnt so much from him for less money! He is always available to help between lessons & does 1-1 lessons too. I now love my camera, one happy lady!"



"Really pleased I took Chris' course. I have learned so much about photography, finally!"
