INSPIRE, EDUCATE, ENCOURAGE & support

 

Every year, I offer a number of In-Person Training Days and Workshops in The Netherlands and in the UK.

I love teaching, sharing my knowledge with others and seeing their development over the course of a day or a few sessions. Although it is over ten years since I took my first ever photographic training course, that course is still fresh in my mind, and I look back with fond memories of my enthusiastic and well-informed tutor and aspire to offer that experience to others.

My training days are kept to small groups of no more than six. They are held at locations which elevate learning of specific techniques to ensure the best learning experience possible.

As a guide of possible locations:

In The Netherlands:

  • Sonsbeek Park in Arnhem offers waterfalls, woodlands and flower gardens.
  • The Posbank and park Hoge Veluwe offers trees, paths and nature.
  • Appeltern Gardens offers a wealth of textures in nature together with architectural garden elements.**
  • Keukenhof offers every imaginable colour, texture and shape of flowers.**
  • Other locations are available.

** (For the Appeltern and Keukenhof locations, an entry cost is also required)

In the United Kingdom:

Workshops can be organised in any location, depending on demand.  Previous workshops have been held in Suffolk, Gloucestershire, Nottinghamshire, and various locations in Scotland.

A Full Day Workshop Exploring creative techniques

LOCATION:  Amsterdam

DATE: 7th August 2024

Duration: – 1 day (Meeting at 10am to finish around 4pm.)

Price: €125

This day will offer you the opportunity to explore both the creative technique of both ICM Photography, and how ICM can be combined with multiple exposures to create images that develop in complexity and creativity. Throughout the day, you will be guided through the techniques and encouraged to develop a way of seeing in such a way that will encourage creativity.  My aim is for you not only to be able to create ICM and multiple exposure images, but also to understand how you can continue to work in this style once you leave the workshop.  This workshop is suitable for any level of ICM or multiple exposure experience.

There will be opportunities to explore architecture, urban landscape, people movement and water during this workshop in the city.

Please note that regarding the multiple exposures learning, I will be teaching concepts you can use in camera or phone and also bringing images together in post-production.

There will be guided exercises to challenge and encourage exploration of the techniques if you would like to develop your learning. But if you prefer just to enjoy the location with my support when you need it, that is also possible.

Group size is kept to a maximum of eight to ensure lots of 1:1 time with each participant. If you are a complete beginner, I suggest you watch a couple of my YouTube videos so that you have the basics of understanding before the workshop.

Requirements:  Camera with adjustable shutter speed and ISO with the option to work in manual mode. ND (neutral density) filters are also useful if you have them.  A tripod is optional.  Clothing suitable to the weather.

Workshops go ahead unless the rain is so hard it makes photography impossible.

Exertion Level:  Rating * *

* Easy/flat terrain – not too much walking.  ** Medium – may include inclines, or you may be on your feet for the full day moving around the location or walking a couple of km.  (If you have any concerns about this level, please let me know before booking.). ***  High – requires a reasonable fitness.  Walking will be required to reach the photographic destination, and we will be active for the duration of the workshop – not recommended for those with mobility issues.

Timing:  10:00 – 16:00

Not Included:  Lunch or drinks – We will stop for lunch during the workshop.

Your transport to the workshop is not included.

workshops

LOCATION:  The Netherlands

Duration – 1 day – 8 hours. 1/2 day – 4 hours.

(Start and end time variable according to your request).

PRICE –  Full day €500 euros.  Half day €300 euros. (One flat rate for your group of 1-3 people)

Booking this option is a Private Workshop; you share only with people you book with.

Deposit: €150 is required to book.

Location within a 30-minute drive of 6986CK is included in the price. Additional time for travel is charged at 40 euros per hour for total travel time.

A Private Workshop is a perfect option if you would like me to join you on location. Whilst together I can help you develop new skills, build experience or support you in whatever outcomes you would like to achieve. I love to teach ICM, multiple exposures and create photography techniques. I am also more than happy to join you at a location or organise an experience that you have always wanted to photograph.

In the spring I can guide out to the tulip fields if you wish. During the rest of the year I can recommend locations for specific skill development for ICM and multiple exposures. Or suggest unique landscapes and city locations to explore. I can also organise equine shoot experiences.

I can also be your Guide for the day, and I am happy to show you the ‘off the beaten track’ locations that I love. But I will be guided by you as to how long you like to linger at any one location. Being in a small car, stopping for photographic opportunities is easier than when you are with a big group. If you are a pro looking for a guide to unique locations, I can offer you this. However, if you would like me to help or teach you any technical aspects of Landscape or Creative Photography, I am also more than happy to do this.

Deposit:  To secure your place, a payment of €150 Euros is required.
