Photography for Parents workshop

family Jan-Mar 2012-77Do you wish you could take better photos of your family but just don’t have time to spend hours reading the (confusing!) manual or doing a technical 6 week course?

Hopefully this half-day workshop is exactly what you’ve been looking for!

Spend an enjoyable morning away from the children, learning new skills that you will be able to put into practice that very afternoon. This workshop focuses on simple concepts that will dramatically improve your photos; just by understanding lighting, composition, perspective and the best way to set up your camera.

Take a look at the before and after galleries to see the huge difference that can be achieved from this half-day workshop.  And take a look at all of the kind words parents have said about the workshop.

  •  how to find great light in any situation

  • what exposure is in a nutshell
  • how to get that lovely blurry background in your photos
  • how to set up your camera for best results
  • what to do with your photos once you’ve taken them

The best thing about this morning has been Vicki’s whole approach and the way she teaches. At last, to be told in a very logical and friendly way how to use my camera.

I feel genuinely excited about picking up my camera again. Thank you, now I feel very inspired and ready to go!

The workshop was great – I so wish I had discovered you years ago!! You were 100% better than that course I did years ago.  I came away with loads of really priceless tips.

Thank you for being so inspiring, fun, interesting and easy to understand.
