I am pleased to announce this practical photographic workshop on composition techniques.

This workshop is available for group and individual tuition.

The aim of this active workshop is to improve your photographic skills and your photography by influencing the way in which you approach your subjects and compose your images.  Applying simple composition techniques will significantly improve the overall impact and balance of your photography.   You will be shown when and how to use these techniques in realistic everyday surroundings, delivered in simplistic approach.

You will learn and become familiar with the following techniques:

  • The Rule of Thirds

  • Distracting elements

  • Converging and leading lines

  • Tight Cropping

  • Symmetry and Patterns

  • Frames and Framing

  • Selective focusing


The day will start with introductions and an explanation of the agenda before opening the first subject of the day.  Thereafter, the day is broken down into four easy-paced segments of theory and practical sessions covering the subjects above. This will ensure that everyone understands and no one is left behind. We will break for lunch for 30 minutes when convenient with everyone. The day will end with final thoughts and questions.

The workshop includes practical and easy to follow handouts so making notes is not essential. This enables you to concentrate more on your day. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and share experiences during the course of day.

The session is open for beginners through to intermediate but you must have a basic understanding of your camera’s operations and functions. It is essential you bring your camera manual.

Participation and discussions with other delegates is encouraged within the group workshops.
