“I wish my photographs looked like…”
Have you ever scrolled social media and wished that you could capture your memories like the grass-is-greener blogger you’re following? You can – I promise!
Ten years ago I bought my first DSLR in an attempt to take “3D” photographs of my children growing up. I quickly realised that to my horror, my great camera did not produce the great photographs I was expecting in automatic mode, at the click of a button- and so I’ve spent the last ten years learning how to create the memories I want to cherish with my camera – and helping others do the same.
Over the years I’ve spoken at conferences and taught sessions for large groups, provided one to one tuition for students, and hosted beautiful countryside retreats for people to get to grips with their camera, learn and understand how to capture the images they want…and I can help you, too.

Do you have a DSLR? Is it still in automatic mode?

scared you’ll embarrass yourself? you won’t.
I’ve asked all the questions, made all the mistakes…so you don’t need to.
