Beginners Photography Workshops

The three graces stand on the World famous waterfront at Liverpool. Though many focus on the jewel in the crown, The Royal Liverbuildings, the Port of Liverpool Building is just as beautiful.

If you’re new to photography and looking to take your skills to the next level, this 2-hour beginners workshop is for you!

3 hour Photography Workshops for only £45

During this three hour workshop, we’ll talk about what makes a great photograph and help you to learn-

  • The basics of the exposure triangle and why it’s important.
  • Compositional techinques such as the “rule of thirds”, “leading lines” and the “golden ratio” and how to use them.
  • How to get clear, sharp focussed images every time.
  • How to choose what you want and don’t want in your photograph.
  • How to use multiple compositional elements in your shot.
  • How to use & control depth of field to enhance your composition.
  • The basics of your camera functions to help you move from automatic to semi-automatic / manual modes.


Currently, I run this workshop in Liverpool & Chester City centre, and occasionally other locations such as Hilbre Island too.

What to expect on the day

My workshops are interactive with plenty to photograph and are limited to 4 people per workshop. I find this number allows a good level of discussion and tuition without becoming overcrowded. Throughout the workshop, we’ll take shots as a group then discuss our thinking behind each shot and how we feel those shots could be improved. At the end of the three hours, you should have a wide selection of photographs plus a range new of techniques to use out in the field in the future.
