Workshops at Chester Zoo

July update: Read my Chester Zoo interview here

Im very pleased to announce that I will be one of three teachers in a couple of two day workshop at Chester Zoo in September 2017 along with the Arctic photographer Sue Flood and the Travel photographer and metadata specialist Cindy Miller Hopkins.

The advanced photography course is aimed to improve the skills and techniques of photographers who feel they are ready to take the next step up in their photography. You have a choice of dates with each Workshop taking place over two days and are split half a day to each of us when there will be a maximum of 15 people in each class, plus a half day combined workshop. The September 23rd to 24th course is £295 and includes entry to the zoo on the 25th to practice your new found skills, The 30th September to 1st October course is also £295 and includes entry to the zoo on the 2nd October.

My half day session will be a distillation of the efficient imaging workflow required to meet the quality requirements expected of a professional and will cover selecting, processing, retouching, managing a collection of images and delivering files to market.

As well as practical tips I will talk about how professionals think in terms of their photography and how it differs from some amateurs. This will be a session about problems and issues and how to overcome them, this course will contain layers of guidance and practical advice on imaging workflow and making your images look their best, it will not be a turgid trip through the menus.

Although the workflow I will describe is based on professional requirements it does no harm to the advanced amateur to understand and prepare images to a professional standard as part of their own workflow, in fact the discipline of a considered and minimal imaging workflow will allow you to free up time managing images and enable you to start using images as they are meant to be used.
