Update: From May 17th 2021 I will be available for 1:1 sessions and for groups of up to 4 on a Spirit of Suffolk Photo Tour. Keep an eye on this website and Spirit of Suffolk social media platforms for upcoming group photography workshops.



I offer a variety of group Photography Workshops with a focus on nature/wildlife throughout the year as well as being available for 1:1 or small group workshops at any time.

Why me? I have been fortunate to have spent time in the field with some of the worlds leading photographers including Paul Nicklen, Cristina Mittermeier, Melissa Groo, Mark Carwardine, Jason Houston and Ian McAllister. Through these workshops I am able to share the collated knowledge gained from these masters onto to you. I have been published with National Geographic, the New York Times, The Guardian and the BBC Wildlife Magazine amongst others.

I am also a qualified lecturer with many years of teaching experience and have crafted the ability to blend theory with practical in a way that is accessible for all.

I believe that I have found my own style and niche in photography and I use a handful of principles in my work that achieve the results that I do. These principles are what I share with you through practical settings that you can use and adapt with in your own style to enhance your photography. Of course a few special tips and tricks picked up along the way also!

I hope I’ll be able to join you on your photography journey and make a positive impact on your practice.
