My September photography workshop for parents in Surrey | Surrey photography course

Hope you’re enjoying all of the autumn colours that are around at the moment, and taking lots of lovely photos!

I held one of my photography workshops for beginners in Surrey last month and wanted to share a few photos with you. Here are the lovely group of parents who joined me for the morning to discover the secrets of taking gorgeous photos of their families, and to finally get to grips with their fancy cameras!

We spend the first half of the morning talking through all of the creative parts of photography; how to see the light, composition, finding the right angles and more. Then we pick up our cameras and go through the all of the settings required to take beautiful photos.

We get outside for a while to practise with these new exciting settings and photography knowledge…I’m always so impressed with the photos everyone is able to take straight away.

I set some optional homework at the end of the workshop, so everyone can go off and photograph their own children, send me the images and then I record my video feedback which I post in our private Facebook group.

The photos that the parents send me never fail to impress. Check out these photos taken by Holly after attending just the half day workshop, aren’t they gorgeous!

And here is Holly’s thoughts on the workshop:

“Utterly wonderful! Vicki did a fantastic job of demystifying using my camera and exciting me about photographing my kids.”

And here is a brilliant before and after from Harry. On the left is an image he took before the workshop and on the right is a photo he took within 2 weeks of attending the workshop, what a difference!

Would you love to learn how to take gorgeous photos in time for Christmas? Then come and join us at the beautiful setting of The Medicine Garden in Cobham on Saturday 24th November. See all of the details about my Photography for Parents workshop here.

If you can’t make that date, don’t forget that I also have an online photography course for parents so you can learn from the comfort of your own home.

Also guess what, this month I’m celebrating 10 years in business! I feel very proud to have spent a decade running Vicki Knights Photography and to have photographed hundreds of families and taught hundreds of parents how to take gorgeous photos of their own families.

Thanks so much to all of you who have supported me over the past decade, I really do appreciate it.

And with Halloween just round the corner, make sure you check out my quick and easy tip to taking great Halloween photos.

Take care,
