Do you wish to hone your skills as a creative close-up photographer? If so, why not book a day with me on location, learning about use of depth-of-field, sharpness and focusing stacking, field-craft, natural, flash and LED lighting, the importance of background choice and creating bokeh effects. Whatever your level of experience – complete beginner or semi-professional – the day will be tailored to your individual requirements.

TESTIMONIALS

“I had a fantastic morning with Neil, starting with some butterfly photography at sunrise, followed by some long exposure tuition. I learnt so much, had great fun, and came away with some of the best shots I have ever taken. Neil is a great teacher and generous with his time and ideas - I would highly recommend these workshops!”
