If you've clicked on this link it's probably because you've bought a new camera and may have the faintest idea of how to get the best from it or the right techniques for getting beautiful pictures of your children.
Is it Full Auto all the way for you? Are you frustrated that you keep missing the moment or struggling to get those natural expressions and emotive images from your family?
Yes? Then you're in the right place.
As contributing editor to the internationally-renowned Digital SLR Photography magazine, and a Cambridgeshire-based family & children's photographer for the past eight years, I'm passionate about sharing my secrets with busy parents and equipping them with the know-how to take great photos of their own.
I run in-person photography workshops in the Cambridgeshire area and have several new dates as well as a new format to suit busy schedules. While I'm still offering my usual 3-hour intensive workshop, I now offer a two-part workshop with the same valuable content spread over two evenings, giving you the chance to practise your techniques, digest the information and return for feedback.
Spend an enjoyable evening learning new skills and simple concepts that will dramatically improve your results.

Groups are MAX 8 people to ensure plenty of one-to-one help and time for Q&As. Attendees do not need expensive kit, but their camera should have exposure modes (usually shown as A,S or M next to Auto). You DO NOT need more than a basic camera and lens to improve on this course.
The course fee includes refreshments, a workbook and a 50% off voucher for your own family photo shoot (worth £85) plus an optional follow-up session to troubleshoot any problems you may encounter when putting theory into practice.
