Sharing the Joy of Photography

Let me tell you more

Photography Training to Inspire 

Having been immersed in the world of photography for the last 23 years with 15 of those years  in teaching photography and being a successful photographer I love nothing more than supporting people on their photography journey.

And let's face it photography isn't as straight forward as we like to think it is!! But when the camera clicks and so does your understanding 'the world of photography' can reveal an exciting and satisfying place full of opportunity and creativity. 

It is important that the learning you undertake is positive, encouraging, supportive, accessible and ultimately helps you to realise the potential you have with your camera!! This is my teaching style and what you will experience when being trained by me.

So hop on board, come and join me for a learning experience that is warm, friendly and full of visual and technical know how for the novice, the amateur and the experienced. 

“Hannah is a fantastic teacher and a fountain of knowledge. She manages to make even the most complex of photography jargon easy to understand and always makes it fun. Classes are easy going, relaxed and very professional. There is no fluff in her delivery and I can’t recommend being in one of her workshops enough”.

The Journey

Let's go on a journey with our photography and explore everything from intention, creation and production.

This workshop will encourage you to create a 'one day photography project of 20 images ' where you have the option to create a printed photozine which is simply a sequence of photographs that may explore a theme, narrative or project. The printed material is much like a magazine hence the 'zine'.


The workshop will encourage you to explore ideas around a subject/theme/genre that interests you that you might not have had chance to fully realise. It is designed to help you to be inspired, to create and produce photography  with consideration of the role of the photograph and the relationship between photographer and subject.

Coming in 2024

  • What should I expect from a typical in person workshop?

    You will receive an email before your workshop date, where I will send you essential info on what you will need for the workshop, how to send images to me prior to the session (if we are using own images) and that all important zoom link
  • What do we do on the workshop?
    Each workshop is different but in general we always begin with a brief chat if only for a few minutes so we can all say hello and I can discuss the aims of the session, typically a workshop will begin with theory based content with opportunities to discuss ideas and theories, followed by practical application either online through Lightroom or in person on location. As we move through the workshop there will be the chance for toilet breaks and refreshments along with interim reflections and reviews of progress, to help develop further exploration and finally we end with a summary and next steps with what you have gained from the workshop!
  • What if it rains or one of us is poorly?
    Living in the UK we are challenged by the weather and it’s unpredictable nature!! A little drizzle is ok, if I deem the weather to be too unsuitable we will reschedule! And find another perfect date for us all! Nobody wants to be taking photographs when they are ill, if you are able to notify me a week before the workshop I can transfer your payment to another workshop of your choice equal to the amount paid or you can pay the difference if it is higher than your original booked workshop. If you can only give me 48hrs notice or less I cannot give a refund due to limited time to fill the available space.
  • Do you have insurance?
    Absolutely! I have you and me fully covered, I have both liability and indemnity insurance I also hold a DBS Certificate
  • What should I expect from a typical talk
    As an experienced speaker I bring with me a warm, relaxed approach with a touch of laughter! You will find talks are informative, and typically explore theories, ideas and concepts, followed by practical and useful tips and tricks to aid improvement and refinement of photography skills, depending on the talk there may also be practical demonstration such as Lightroom live editing. There will always be that all important break for refreshment and the opportunities for Q&A!
  • What do I do once I have my photographs?
    I love our digital world, I really do but there is nothing better than the world in print!! You invested time in creating beautiful imagery so why hide it away!! I offer high quality, professional printing options for those of you wanting to have your work printed! And I can discuss with you the variety of printing products available.
