“I’ve owned a really good camera for years but I’ve always been too scared to use it. Caroline taught me how to in an easy to understand way and I finally know what the settings do!

The bonus was learning it all with a group of friendly Mums in the same situation as me and a rare morning away from the children!” Lisa Crowe

Do you have a “decent” camera which is collecting dust because it’s so much easier to pull out your phone?

AND if you do get it out, you stick it on Auto and hope for the best?

Perhaps you get frustrated because you just can’t seem to master that dreamy blurred background that you love so much. 

Wouldn’t it be great if you could take nail sharp photographs that you would be proud to display on your walls or give as gifts to loved ones?

BY THE END OF THE WORKSHOP YOU WILL:

  • Be able to shoot in manual mode!  You’ll receive a brief explanation of the exposure triangle and the secret to that blurry background!

 

  • Know easy to implement topics such as light, composition and seeing new opportunities to photography – all of which will improve your photos straight away even without any camera knowledge.

 

  • Know how to take powerful candid photos which evoke memories and tell a story

 

  • Have fun!we’ll laugh… you’ll learn and most importantly, you’ll walk away with a better understanding of how to photograph those every day moments with your family

The workshops take place at Duck, Duck Goose! which is a little Scandi style cafe in Colchester and the Galleywood Heritage Centre near Chelmsford.  Both are perfect venues for a cosy morning of learning and plenty of outside space to practice in.

We spend 4 hours together and have a cake and coffee break half way through, purely to re-charge the brain, of course!

Only 8 Mums attend my Workshops at any one time so I get to spend lots of one-to-one time with them.

“Having a little girl now meant I wanted to learn how to capture those special moments in a more creative way.

 

Caroline was very welcoming and I particularly loved the cheat sheets which I have used since, as a quick reference to give me the confidence to shoot in manual mode!”

Hannah Wakeman

hi, i’m Caroline

And being the stubborn woman that I am (ask my husband!) I set myself the task of nailing a non-blurry child and a blurry background instead.

So I spent many nights, whilst feeding my babies, watching YouTube videos to teach myself how to photograph them.

Being self-taught IS possible, but it’s so much faster and more fun learning together with a small group of other Mums on a mission to feel confident and creative about their photos!

 

I’ll teach you the “game changer” which took my photos from looking like this

IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR ME IF I DON'T HAVE A "GOOD" CAMERA YET?

This workshop is designed for those who own a DSLR camera or a newer point-and-shoot (with AP, TV and manual modes) as we’ll be covering the technical aspects of shooting with that type of camera.  

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING WITH ME?

Your camera

Memory card and fully charged battery

Your camera manual

MY NCT GROUP WOULD LOVE A WORKSHOP, DO YOU RUN WORKSHOPS FOR PRIVATE GROUPS?

Yes I do!  I can come to somewhere as simple as one of your kitchens.  Provided we have enough space for everyone to sit and access to some outside space we are set!  The price is fixed whether or not the workshop is for 2 people of 8.  Please get in touch for more details.

DOES THE WORKSHOP COVER OTHER AREAS SUCH AS LANDSCAPES AND NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY?

I’m afraid not!  I am a photographer of people and this is my specialist area.  My focus is purely on teaching you how to get beautiful photographs of your children.

DO YOU SELL GIFT VOUCHERS?

Yes! My workshops make a lovely gift! Gift vouchers are presented in a beautiful gift box and posted to you.  They can be redeemed by the recipient booking onto a workshop within 12 months of purchase.
