Tony has a lovely laid back style which I find easy to follow. He clearly knows his stuff & I had a thoroughly enjoyable time. I whole heartedly recommend the course to anyone who wants to improve their photography.

One-2-One Training

For One-to-One training I travel throughout Essex, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and London. One-to-One can be as single days or heavily discounted blocks of 3 1/2 days where we progress and check at each stage.

Group Training

Group Training – I offer various workshops and photography days throughout the year which work out at a lower price per person as a group. Software days such as Photoshop or Lightroom. Techniques in post production. Studio days with models or photographic sets. Lighting techniques and use of cameras and their settings.

Additionally for certain people I can provide bespoke training shared across two people who have similar training requirements. I also offer bespoke group training options directly to camera clubs as well as other private photographic groups.
