‘Selfie help’ workshop – how to take better pictures with your mobile device.
For many, one of the main purposes of the camera in their smartphone is to capture and share selfies. In this popular workshop attendees discover the true potential of their mobile device and learn the skills needed to take better pictures for both fun and work.
The workshop is both practical and enjoyable and will provide attendees with a range of skills such as lighting, camera, apps, exposure, composition and useful accessories and much more.
The introductory session normally runs for between 1 and 2 hours and there is also an intermediate session of the same length. The workshop can be offered as a practical staff development session (CPD) or as a fun away-day activity. Click here to find out more.

Bespoke Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom training for clients in Bath, Bristol and across the UK.
Adobe Photoshop is the industry standard application for editing still images. I have been using the application commercially since 1990 and have taught it since 1994. Some of my Photoshop illustrations have won national awards. I have taught the application at a number of universities including Bristol, Bath, Gloucestershire and Coventry and have trained people at organisations including the National Trust and the BBC.
While I run structured introduction and intermediate courses, I can also tailor my training to suit the needs of my students. For example, I have delivered a six hour Photoshop for Architects session at the University of Bath and a Raw file format workshop for staff at the BBC.
I normally discuss the clients needs free of charge and only bill for face to face teaching time. My rates start at £40/hr for sessions over 2 hours or £45/hr for 1 to 2 hour sessions. There may be a charge for travel to clients outside the Bath / Bristol areas.
Training for beginners might include; Paint Tools, Cloning, Healing, Selection, Tone and Colour Adjustment, Layers, Type and Filters. More advanced users might cover Masking, Vectors and Colour Management. I plan my training to suit the needs and level of understanding of my students so contact me to discuss how I might structure a training session.

While Adobe Lightroom offers many of the editing tools found in Photoshop its real strength is in its media management features and the ability to process a huge number of images simultaneously.
I am based in the Bath and Bristol area but can offer Photoshop and Lightroom training across the UK. For more information, drop me an email or give me a call on 07973 631185
Photoshop is an incredibly powerful application but it can take a long time to master its many features. I have produced a number of short videos to help my students get to grips with some of the commonly used tools and controls. This short training video shows how the Paste Into function in Photoshop can be used to replace a selected area in a photograph with content taken from another picture.
