Online smartphone photography and videography workshops for individuals or groups from £20

Thanks for a great tutorial on video photography. One of the best online events I have attended during lockdown. Yvonne Rogers, RAC, London

I have taught smartphone photography to hundreds of groups both online and face to face. These workshops are practical and fun and cover all of the main controls of a smartphone camera and reveal some of the hidden features that can improve the quality of your pictures or video. I also cover editing images or video on your smartphone using free or very cheap smartphone apps. I encourage a friendly and supportive learning environment where students can share their work and learn from each other.

I am normally hired by organisations to deliver this course to their employees or members but I recognise that there is a demand from individuals. To run a group session all  I need to run a six hour workshop is 10 attendees paying £30 per person.

The two workshops I am currently offering to individuals is smartphone photography and editing and Smartphone videography and editing.

The smartphone photography and editing workshop is 3 x 2 hour sessions at £30 for the whole course

The smartphone videography and editing workshop is 1 x 3 hour workshop at £20 for the session

This is an online workshop and open to attendees from anywhere.

Payment is via Paypal and I try to plan sessions at a time that is convenient to all. If you are interested in attending a smartphone photography or videography course with me, please email me telling me which course you are interested in, what time or day is most convenient? If and when I have enough attendees to run a course, I will notify those on the list and request payment.

I am now selling prints directly as part of the Artists Support Pledge. As part of the scheme, I have both sold some of my work and bought a couple of amazing prints by other artists. The project supports artists during these difficult times. If you would like to search for work that is being sold under the scheme. search for #artistsupportpledge in Instagram.

You can see some of the prints I am selling on my Print Sales page, I am currently selling two 20cm x 20cm prints from my Bangladesh Ship Breakers project for  £105 before P&P.  If you don’t mind acrylic rather than glass theses prints look great in Ikea frames.

Online smartphone photography training

Since the start of the Pandemic, all of my training has moved online.  By far the most popular subject is smartphone photography. I have delivered online training to individuals and to groups of over 300. Smartphone photography courses make great staff training activities, link well with social media training as well as being purely for pleasure. Training is tailored to suit the needs of the client but typically involves the hidden features of the smartphone camera, taking control of your smartphone camera, getting better pictures and editing on your smartphone using Snapseed. I can also deliver courses on smartphone videography.

Nigel put together an excellent three hour online presentation on the use of smartphone cameras.  The content was well thought out, timed to perfection, presented seamlessly and so in demand that we ran a further 5 sessions for groups of 12 participants.  He adapted it to suit all camera models and covered most of their technical capabilities aswell as looking at the editing software.   His knowledge and presentation skills were appreciated by beginners as well as the more experienced photographers in our group.
