About Me

I have been involved in teaching photography to children and adults for many years passing on my knowledge is an enriching experience. I also love just meeting new people and talking techniques and photographic styles, I am always ready to learn in return of new developments in the trade.

I really value being able to pass on the knowledge that I have gained and thoroughly enjoy the challenges of teaching and the pleasure and joy that someone has when they have understood that knowledge and are able to then put that into practice. I like to be able to tear down the barriers that cause us to feel intimidated and take away those fears and insecurities that can make learning difficult.

Education

BTEC Further and Adult Education teaching certificate (year 1996)
PQE in Photography, Film and Media (year 1989)
BTEC HND in Photography, Film and Media (year 1988)

Experience / Qualifications

I hold a Further and Adult Education teaching certificate, I taught on the Access to Photography, at Newcastle College. There I identified individual learning needs, facilitated learning through presentations, activities, instruction and demonstrations. I designed and developed training sessions, assessed student performance, and evaluated training and development for students of all ages.

I have continued to develop my teaching and training working with 16 plus in Photography, web design, video production, animation and multimedia. I also teach photography workshops to all levels and am currently teaching on a individual basis , one to one.
Aimed at Beginners and perfect if you want to get to know the ins and outs of exposure, composition and how to make the most of any situation, whilst you're in control of your camera not the other way around! You will learn how to operate your camera, make correct exposures and understand the basics like aperture, shutter speed and ISO. The aim is to give you a better understanding of how the camera works and help you gain an understanding and confidence to go out and shoot great pictures. Designed to be hands-on, we will be using our cameras from the word go and I will help to break down the barriers to learning without too much technical jargon!

I offer private lessons to photography students and any other individuals who would be interested in 'how to'/technical skills sessions or in developing a photographic body of work and would be in need for some expert advice.

Photography - Understand your camera and use it!
Have you always wanted to take photos, you have probably even bought a reflex camera, but it is now gathering dust in a cupboard? Do you want to get started, but you don't know where to start? Then this course is for you! In this course, we will cover the basics of photography (ISO, shutter speed, aperture,...). The goal is to help you understand the technical basics, without it being too complicated either. More than anything, what matters to me is that you can take control of your camera, and then be able to really use it in the moments that matter to you. Depending on your needs, we can approach how to photograph a landscape, a person, etc., so that it is as close as possible to the expected result. The goal is to develop your eye over time, because in my opinion that is the best way to learn: by doing. Photographer for over 10 years, holder of a CFC, and self-employed since 2020, I am active in the field of weddings, portraits, landscape photography and concerts. In other words, reporting in all its forms. Capturing what is happening in front of me and transcribing it into photos, with my eye and my sensitivity, is a passion that has driven me for years, and it is what I am keen to pass on to you.
