The 'Composition and Light' photography workshop builds on the knowledge gained from the 'Know The Basics' workshop (or maybe you're already comfortable with how your camera works) to concentrate on composition, lighting, colour and creativity.
This one-day photography course will get you looking at your subjects in a whole new light, considering how best to compose, what to include, what to exclude, and which focal length will give the results you want.
Starting at 10am and running through to 4pm, the workshop benefits participants with any level of knowledge, using most types of camera, including compacts, bridge cameras and SLRs.
We spend the morning indoors, with a slideshow and discussion looking at composition, focal length, light, creative use of colour, subject matter and more.
During the afternoon we head outdoors to try to put these techniques into practice, with everyone getting some one-to-one time whilst we're out there.
Upcoming dates are shown below, click the links for full details of the day and how to book.

I also offer private photography tuition, so that you can receive my undivided attention all year round.
Sunday 9th June 2024
- 10.00am-4.00pm 10 Spaces
This workshop explores the more artistic side of photography, as opposed to the technical (which is covered in my 'Know The Basics/Learn To Control Your Camera' workshop).
An understanding of the controls of your camera is useful, as we will be controlling depth-of-field, subject movement and more. However, the purely compositional aspects of the day can be achieved with little to no technical knowledge.
My 'Composition and Light' photography workshops cost £70 per person, with a maximum of 10 participants.
The workshop runs for 6 hours (including lunch break), and includes an indoor slideshow and discussion in the morning. This is followed by a practical outdoor session in the afternoon.
Everyone gets some 1-2-1 time in the afternoon, which can be used to address any aspect of your camera, photography, or anything else you wish to cover.
No. I have had customers as young as 10 on a standard workshop and have even run workshops for children's groups, with an age range of 7-11. The other end of the age spectrum is no hindrance either!
Children under the age of 16 years must be accompanied by a designated, appropriate adult; this may be a family member, nanny or chaperone. If the appropriate adult is not a workshop participant no extra charge will be incurred.

I have attended two courses with Daniel
"I have attended two courses with Daniel, looking at coastal and macro photography. Both sessions were very well organised with a class session followed by outdoor practical work. Daniel is very patient and takes time with everybody to ensure that each person understands how to achieve good photographic images for the relevant topic. The courses are priced reasonably and more importantly are very enjoyable." Marguerite via Trustpilot
Another great day spent with Daniel
"Another great day spent with Daniel learning the basics and how to control my camera. A very informative day presented in an easy to understand format. Have read about aperture, shutter speed and ISO but never really understood it. This workshop gave me a much better practical understanding of how these work together. Have been out practicing today doing everything in manual mode and really enjoyed experimenting. I will get a lot more pleasure from my photography now that I know more about what I am doing. Would highly recommend this workshop." Steve via Trustpilot
Until today I had no idea what I was doing
"Until today I had no idea what I was doing with my camera and how to use it. Thanks to Daniel everything now makes sense and it's now down to me to practice what I have learnt. Thanks for a great day and giving me that photography bug even more!" Steve Leeds via Trustpilot
Fantastic 1 to 1 private tuition with Daniel
"Fantastic 1 to 1 private tuition with Daniel. After a year of ‘playing’ about with my camera I needed to be taught some of the basics, Daniel made this simple to follow and demonstrated as he went along. I feel like I’ve picked up some handy tips and will definitely put what I have learnt into practice as soon as this rain goes away!" Cassie via Trustpilot
"A very enjoyable experience, walking from Blackfriars to Westminister Bridge. Although I have walked along this route at other times, Daniel gave you an insight into seeing things with a photgrapher eye. He provided helpful advice about the settings to use, giving you a chance to try different ways of capturing an image. He also responded to any queries of how to shoot particular scene."

Great Session Top Tuition
"My husband and I attended the Know The Basics workshop. It was a very enjoyable and informative day. The session was interactive and set at a good pace. Daniel’s friendly presentation was very effective with an excellent supporting booklet. We now have the confidence to use our cameras competently and enjoy our photography even more. Totally recommend Daniel to help you wherever you are on your photography path." Julie Rose via Trustpilot
