What’s more, we always limit the number of participants in any group workshop to ensure that everyone will get maximum benefit. We don’t simply pile huge numbers of people in to a workshop. You deserve a good learning environment so not only do we limit the numbers, we also choose locations very carefully and pick the right models for our photography training workshops.

If you are looking for photography training then get in touch and book on to one of our photography workshops or book photography tuition online. For a more personalised, tailored approach do try our 1-2-1 photography tuition. Can’t get to our workshops? You can still learn from Joe with our online photography mentoring service.
