Photography workshops / Tours and holidays
Are you looking to improve your photography skills?

I offer photography tours, workshops and tuition to both individuals and groups.

Just bought your first digital SLR? Or maybe you are having trouble understanding the complexities of your compact? Whether you are a budding professional or amateur enthusiast who wants to get more from your camera, there is no better way to learn the art of photography and put these new skills to practice than by travelling around a country resplendent with stunning natural landscapes, interesting people and great light.

All tuition takes place entirely on location in England, Ireland or Slovenia where you can learn and develop your photographic skills while enjoying the outdoors and capture dramatic photos at the same time in a relaxed, informal and enjoyable atmosphere, among others who enjoy photography too. Or you can take a private tour or workshop where you will get my undivided attention.

Distant Perspectives in Slovenia - Churches & Mountains

While the majority of landscape photography is done with a wide angle or small focal length, the use of a telephoto lens is often overlooked. There are certain viewpoints you get of landscapes that you can only get from a distance. On this workshop I will show you, using a number of great locations around the Ljubljana airport, just how to spot these and how to utilise a long focal length to create these unique perspectives.
