Photography Workshops – One-to-One & Small Groups

One-To-One sessions really are the best way to make the most of your day if you’re interested in finding out more about how I work and improving your own photography. Workshops last from 10am until 5pm and can be custom-built to cover the exact subjects you’re keen to learn more about.

You can choose from wedding photography, music photography or just photography in general.

Below is a sample of topics that we can cover during your session. We can try to cover all of them or we can focus only on the subjects you specify. Just me. And you. Sound like fun? 🙂

We also cater to small groups – from 2 to 8 people – and can again tailor workshops so that everybody gets the most from their day.

Wedding Photography

– My photography style

– How I find the right clients without spending too much money

– What’s in my bag.

– How I work on the wedding day.

– How I use natural light, off camera flash and a little wizardry

Live shoot. A regular couple on the urban backstreets of Birmingham. How to get a varied and creative set of images in a short space of time.

– Post-production. How I give images the look I’m after.

– Workflow – Don’t let work take over your life!

Music Photography

Music and Photography ? A Brief History.
The Easy Way To Becoming a Music Photographer.
Passes and How To get Them.
Venues. From pubs to stadiums to festivals.
Professionalism & Etiquette.

Lighting. How I use natural light, off camera flash and simple, portable lighting set-ups.
Live shoot. We’ll be shooting a real band on the urban backstreets of Birmingham and showing how to get a varied and creative set of images in a short space of time.
Post-production. I’ll download and edit some of the shots from the band shoot and show how I bring the images to life.

  1. Hi Steve

    Just to say I’m loving the site loads. I really would like to arrange a one-to-one session with to cover both music photography, wedding and a bit of everything really. However, you know that stuff they call money? Well, I ain’t got much of it at the moment but as soon as I’ve got enough, I’d like to book
    In with you. How much notice do you require in regards to arranging a session?

      Hi Lucy. Workshops can be booked at short notice if we have availability. Just let me know when you’re ready and we’ll see what’s free.

    I would love to do one of these workshops in the future, I’ve admired your photography for quite some time and I know there’s a lot you could teach an amateur like me. I’m especially interested in portraits and gig-photography as I’m a bit of a gig addict, and have seen you shooting many of the gigs I attend in Birmingham/Wolverhampton. Also very interested in post-processing of photos. At the moment though, it will have to remain a dream as I’m unemployed and struggling for every penny. Keep up the good work Steve! ^^
