Kent Coast Landscape Photography 1:1
Kent Coast Landscape Photography One-2-One.
Is it for me?
After being asked numerous times 'will you ever be running a One-2-One session' I have decided to do just that.
The Kent Coast Landscape Photography session is another amazing location-packed session I have decided to run.
While I have been visiting this coastline for the past 7 years visiting family I spend a lot of the time walking the county's amazing shorelines
Just get in contact after booking to arrange a suitable date and we will take it from there.
This workshop is aimed at anybody who has a very basic understanding of the manual controls on their DSLR/CSC camera, right through to people who know how to use their camera and just want to improve their photographic practice.
Where will the workshop start?
We will start at a predetermined location that is convenient for you, from there you can either drive yourself or be driven by Dibs in his car for the duration of the 1-2-1 session.
Just let me know what way you prefer when booking, or enquire beforehand to arrange the date of the session as well.
How do I teach on the Kent Coast Landscape Photography One-2-One?
The day is filled with landscape photography tuition out on location in North Kent. Followed by a Cafe lunch and finishing with an editing session with a cuppa and snacks nearby.
Once we have finished shooting, we will then choose from a variety of the images from the day and look at ways to edit these, it would be advisable to bring along your laptop with editing software such as Lightroom and Photoshop on it.
The session will focus on the landscapes in the well-known areas of the North Kent and Thanet areas coastline depending on the start location you prefer.
This is one student to one tutor session, so you know you will get all the help that is needed to maximize your learning from the day.
The day will be solely tailored around your needs, so in brief, you will have somebody to show you what to look out for in creating those perfect images before you have even got the camera out of the camera bag.
By the end of the session you have a full understanding of what all the settings on your camera do and get you away from shooting automatic modes, you will be taking control of your camera and the settings and letting the creativity start to flow.
What experience do I have as a tutor?
All day while shooting we will be discussing the theory behind making work, what stands out and what sells, what makes a good image and how can we get that image we see into our cameras. This comes off the back of my many years of commercial photography experience and time spent studying photography as an art form.
You know you will be in good hands during the sessions with me.
I spent over 4 years of teaching and writing workshops for all levels and ages of photographers for the country's biggest photographic retailer Wex Photo Video.
As one of the ambassadors for Formatt-Hitech filters, a UK based, yet one of the world's largest landscape filter companies, they fully support me in my work and pass on my knowledge of photography as I meet their high standards of excellence through my sessions.
5 years studying landscape and architecture photography to Masters's degree level with some of the best mentors and tutors the country has,
I have also picked up a few awards along the way and I have exhibited and been published worldwide, just check out my Shows and Awards page

Please bring along snacks and drinks as due to the locations we will be shooting having limited facilities. There will not be a guarantee of a shop being nearby at all times.
We will stop for a hot drink and a bite to eat at some point throughout the day, this is not covered in the workshop cost.
I will be able to lend you a full set of Professional filters, it is the same exact kit I use for making my own work
You will use and get hands-on experience with the Formatt Hitech Filters used for landscape photography and how to use them correctly and what filters to use to create certain effects
But if you are interested in landscape photography we would encourage you to invest in a more substantial setup. I can advise you on what kit to get as it can be a little daunting looking at what you may or may not need.
I also have a discount code for buying filters.
