One to One Photography Tuition
There is nothing I love more than sharing my passion for photography and knowledge of the natural world with equally passionate people. I have over 30 years experience behind the camera and many awards and publications to my name, not to mention being a professional ecologist for over 15 years.
Join me out in the field and benefit from this experience on a one to one. You can even bring a friend and enjoy a two to one experience with a friend for a small additional fee! Both options can include me traveling up to 90 miles from PR45PN. This can include the Lake District, Peak District and the Yorkshire Dales. One to one and two to one days further afield can be accommodated but contact me in the first instance. Additional costs are mileage at 0.45p per mile, plus an overnight stay if required (Travel lodge or similar).
In the first instance I will request a couple of images from you so that I can establish your competency level and provide the right level of tuition on the day. Any information that you wish to provide me with at the same time is very welcome and may include what you would like to cover and any particular location that you might have in mind.

For someone looking to expand their horizons from an artistic or creative point of view through composition, or to better understand the technical and practical elements of camera craft I cannot speak highly enough of your skills and approaches in your workshop. You make for good company Simon in many ways, and your knowledge of the countryside was interesting certainly but it was entertaining too. For people like me with an interest though no great knowledge of the various species of plants and birds we encountered, or ecological matters generally, it was an added bonus and a great part of a very enjoyable and worthwhile day.
All year round. Eight hours duration for a full day and four hours duration for a half day, taking in a dawn or dusk
Group size is typically one person but add a second for half price but contact me in the first instance
