IMAGE EXPLORATIONS SCHOOL OF PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY
Photography with Passion & Life in Motion
‘What I will not teach you is how to be me!’ To develop your own style as I have done over the years becomes your USP. Clients book photographers on the ‘feel factor’ and not based on how great an image-maker you are. But, if you can be both it means a healthy and successful business. The aim of this program is to open your minds to a wealth of possibilities and encourage you to be creative, reactive and responsive to the needs of your demanding clients. I aim to cover…

My aim is to prepare you to become the photographers and business people you wish to be and yours should to be to have a great time and learn with a smile! The photography training program itself is a framework and has the ability to ‘morph’ to your needs, but suffice to say we will be busy. We are a team and in this together to share.
My role is as much a ‘mentor’ and friend to support you all in your professional development. Secondly I am a firm believer that as much can be learned relaxing over dinner and a beer rather than solely in the classroom. It is important to stress once again that the program is a guideline and inevitably other areas of discussion, and needs, will open up.
I would like to meet small groups of you guys at Breakfast every morning at 7.30am to provide a little more support and give you the chance to chat to me outside the class format. We can discuss the timetable at our ‘meet & greet’ session on Sunday evening.
I want to make sure that there is sufficient time on each day for preparation and presentation of your best images every day so can I ask that when you are done shooting in your practical sessions that you commence downloading & retouching straight away.
So until we meet, safe journeys to you all and I look forward immensely to the pleasure of your company.
