Every year I offer a number of training days and workshops here in The Netherlands and in the UK.
I love teaching. Offering my knowledge to others and seeing their development over the course of a few hours or a few sessions is so rewarding. Although its over ten years since I took my first ever photographic training course, that course is still fresh in my mind and I look back with fond memories on my enthusiastic and well informed tutor and aspire to offer that to others.
My training days are kept to small groups of no more than 6. They are held at locations which elevate learning of specific techniques to ensure the best learning experience possible.
A full day exploring the Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) technique
This day will take you step by step, exploring the creative technique of ICM in photography. Throughout the day you will not only be guided through the techniques, but also be encouraged to develop a way of seeing in such a way that will encourage your creativity. My aim is for you to not only be able to create ICM images, but also to understand how you can continue to work in this style once you leave the workshop. Part of the workshop day will be dedicated to post processing your images.
In the UK - £195 per person
In the Netherlands - 180 euros per person
Requirements: Camera with adjustable shutter speed and ISO and the option to work in manual mode. ND filters are also useful if you have them. A tripod is optional.
Location: Various locations will be utilised depending on the season.
In the UK my workshops tend to be based in Suffolk, Norfolk, Gloucestershire and the Lake district.
In the Netherlands, Sonsbeek park in Arnhem offers waterfalls, woodlands and flower gardens. The Posbank and park Hoge Veluwe offers trees, paths and nature. Appeltern offers a wealth of textures in nature together with architectural garden elements. Keukenhof offers every imaginable colour, texture and shape of flowers. (For the Appeltern and Keukenhof locations an entry cost is also required). Other locations are available.

An opportunity to explore an idea and see it develop into a body of work
This is a three session course/workshop. Aimed at anyone interested in understanding how to create more than just a stand alone photo with their work. During our 1st day session we will spend time discussing your ideas and looking at a selection of your work previously completed. We will also have practical challenges to get your creative ideas flowing! From this, we will then create a map to follow over the next four months to reach the target you set yourself. Our second shorter session will be an opportunity to see the progression, an opportunity for critiquing of work, and looking for ways in which the images and overall project can be optimised. At our last session I hope to see a completed body of work that we can discuss further and look at the options for its presentation.
This workshop series will be limited to four people
280 euros per person
Requirements: I would suggest this course is aimed at those looking for a little something more from their photography. However, all are welcome as long as you have a desire to create a project/body of work.
Location: This workshop will be run from my home in Angerlo to ensure a comfortable and optimal learning environment.
Timing: 1st session will be a full day 10.00 - 16.00 Second and third sessions will be four hours long each. The timing of these can be tailored to what is best for the group (evenings and weekends are optional).
