Portrait Photography Workshop

Portrait Photography Workshop

Following the success of my previous courses, i have bowed to pressure and decided to offer a Location Portrait Photography Workshop here in East Sussex.

My award winning style is very creative but relaxed, with all of the portraits shared on my website created without from any formal studio and almost all using natural light sources. The aim of the course is to teach attendees some of the skills i use to produce stunning portraits for my clients with the minimum of fuss and kit.

Starting here with a close up look at my work and style over refreshments, i will outline my strategies and techniques for creating timeless images way above anything the person with his/her new camera can even dream of. Everything is kept simple and straight forward and is shared in a relaxed environment so no one should feel out of place, regardless of where they are with their photography.

I will explain the use and quality of light, correct exposure, posture and posing as well as how to work quickly and how to keep clients relaxed

Then we will go on location (whatever the weather) with our “non model” clients for a portrait session. At the location i will walk you through what i am trying to achieve with the hows and whys in terms of lighting, exposure, camera settings, location, backgrounds etc. As we go on, you will have lots of opportunities to shoot your own images using our subjects and all the time i will be on hand of to offer advice and answer questions etc. At the end of the afternoon you should have a full portrait session to use as part of your portfolio of work.

Once the shoot is complete we then head back here for more refreshments and discuss anything that has arisen from the session.

I prefer an open approach so i’m always open to questions as we go, or at a later date, as the aim of the course is to ensure everyone attending learns from their investment. Far too many training course on offer these days are little more than a money making exercise for the “tutor” and have little regard for the clients (you).


When and Where etc:

Sunday 18th September in Polegate, East Sussex. (11.00am until 4pm).

Maximum of 6 attendees.

Refreshments included.

Price £145.00 per person (or £250 for two attendees from same business).

Please Bring:

Your camera kit, a notebook and suitable clothing as we will be shooting regardless of the weather. I do have a few local locations that i can use whatever the circumstances.


To book your place or if you have any questions at all, please email me on or call me on 07590 983418. Alternatively call 01323 486837.

2016 Wedding Photography Workshop

2016 Wedding Photography Workshop

2016 Wedding Photography Workshop

Wedding Photography Workshop Sunday 17th April 2016

JUST £175.00 per delegate



I am very excited to announce that i have been approached to hold my very special Wedding Photography Workshop in East Sussex in April.

As one of the most sought after wedding photographers in the UK, i love to be able to share my ideas and teach some of the skills i have developed over my 19 year and 900+ wedding career.


The course is being held at the beautiful Bannatynes Spa Hotel, Hastings. View the venue’s website here.

As there will be a substantial proportion of the course dedicated to the practical side with plenty of live shooting its perfect as it offers inside and, weather permitting, outside opportunities . I love shooting winter weddings in low light and indoors so i will be demonstrating how i approach these challenging scenarios.


Sunday 17th April (9.30am-4.00pm or until we finish)

Its the perfect time to expand your skills!

The Day

This is a totally new workshop where Peter will walk you through how to shoot the major parts of a wedding. Step by step using our lovely bride, he will set up scenarios and explain how he would approach it and how to avoid potential pit falls on a real wedding day.

Delegates will have an opportunity to shoot their own images at each step.

Why Book this Course?

There are so many courses and seminars being put on these days. However, unlike most other speakers, Peter is an experienced wedding photographer with over 60 awards and 900+ weddings under his belt. He has shot just about every kind of wedding from the most humble up to genuinely high end weddings at both home and overseas. Peter is also an experienced speaker and trainer who is able to explain and help you with the tools YOU NEED for success in such an over saturated profession.

The tools he will give, will see delegates leaving with the skill set to allow their images to stand out form the crowd. This is not yet another over hyped, glitzy day. Its a day of REAL information and genuine support for wedding photographers of all levels to help you take your business and aspirations further.

In the past Peter’s course have all sold out and he has had rave reviews. Indeed its common for past attendees to sign up again for another day to ensure they pick up inspiration and new methods that REALLY WORK!
