We offer a number of different training options from 1-2-1 courses, photography retreats, and tailored mentoring.
- Would you like to take photos with more heart and soul?
- Are you setting up your portrait photography business and would like to build your portfolio?
- Do you need to build a wider portfolio to set up a portrait photography business?
- Are you keen to capture your children in ‘heirloom’ photos that beautifully reveal their individuality?
- Are you a total beginner to digital photography and just want to learn the very basics?
- Do you blog, and need to polish your camera skills to win new followers and boost your online presence?
We love photography and we hope you can tell. We also love sharing our experience with others who’ve got the bug. Whether you’re an amateur hobbyist, a budding new blogger or thinking about turning pro, we'd love to help you on your photographic journey. We run all of our retreats and training from our beautiful hometown of Hebden Bridge, nestled in the Yorkshire Pennines and a stone’s throw from Brontë country. It’s a place steeped in history, full of character (and characters!) and surrounded by stunning natural scenery, including a famous landmark or two. In other words, it’s the perfect place to learn a wide variety of new photography skills or hone the ones you’ve already got.
Our retreats are based at the Wash House; a lovingly restored stone-built property in a gorgeous canal-side setting, two minutes’ walk from the town centre and train station. Among a small group of likeminded folk, you’ll enjoy plenty of help and attention from us in whichever areas of photography interest you the most. The emphasis is on making your time with us comfortable, relaxed and enjoyable, but also as informative as possible in terms of your creative thinking and technical skills.
Current retreats available are 'Your Journey into Photography' 'Finding Your Voice as a Photographer' and 'Capturing Childhood'
This is possibly our fastest and most effective way to learn, and we currently run half and full-day training courses from Hebden Bridge.
Alternatively, if you’re interested in a series of one-to-one sessions over a period of 1-3 months, we can arrange a bespoke package for you.
These services work particularly well for photographers hoping to make a living from their passion, but our flexible approach means they could really suit anyone. Please drop us a line to talk about your areas of photographic interest and any particular requirements you have.
If you're interested in a number of 1-2-1 sessions over a period of 1-3 months, and would like to chat about the different options, then please contact us and we can work together to create a programme that perfectly matches to your needs.
