Learn to take control of your camera


in museums and low-light places

If you have a passion for heritage, for museums, for ancient civilisations (ancient Egypt, especially!) and enjoy your photography, then I want you to join me.

It all started for me back in 2013, with a trip to the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery to see the temporary exhibition of the 19th-century watercolours painted during Belzoni’s excavation of the tomb of Seti I.

I went along, mobile phone in hand (my first smartphone, I think) and brought back with me a collection of photos of which I was very proud.

They weren’t perfect. Oh no. They weren’t very high resolution – smartphone camera technology being what it was back then – and I had horrible problems with reflections. But, by god, I loved it.

I was totally bitten by the photography bug.

I've since honed my photography skills – some taught and some self-taught – and learned to get the best out my camera. I've married it with my other passion: Egyptology; I've been photographing artefacts at the Garstang Museum of Archaeology at the University of Liverpool since November 2016, including exhibition photography and personal projects.

I now want to help you work on your photography skills so you can get the most out of your camera, too.

Come and join me

Whether you're just starting out with a new camera or you're a seasoned pro, come and find a workshop or photo walk. I'd love to help you get the most out of your camera.

Sometimes, this is down to your hardware; other times, it’s just not quite knowing what to do with your camera. To improve your photography, the first step is to start understanding why your photos aren’t working so well in the first place.… Read More
