Improve your photography skills in the beautiful New Forest

One Day Workshops

I am offering workshops in and around the New Forest. These are relaxed, intuitive days that will improve your photography regardless of ability. 

These are 1 to 1 or small groups.

Please message me below for prices

What you'll do

You’ll learn to take better travel shots and capture some stunning pictures around the New Forest and surrounding coastline.

I will guide you around some of the area’s most photogenic and little-known spots, from the ancient woodland of the New Forest to the colourful huts of Mudeford Beach. You’ll learn simple tips and tricks to dramatically improve your photos of people and places, and come away with some spectacular shots of your own.

At each location, you’ll get hands-on experience of how the essential rules of composition can make each photo tell a better, more compelling story. You’ll learn how you can use natural light to your advantage at different times of the day, and create beautiful images of your travels.

This fun, relaxed course is suitable for everyone - whether you want to take Instagrammable photos on your iPhone or properly get to grips with your full frame camera, you’re sure to come away from the experience a better photographer.


I will work with you to create an itinerary based on your specific interests and needs, as well as taking into account how each day's weather and light conditions can help get the best shots possible.

Starting at 10am and finishing at approximately 5pm. We stop for lunch where we'll recap on the morning and we can finish the day by editing some of your best images.
