Coming soon to a bookstore near you..

As I’m getting quite a few bookings now for my one-to-one training days I thought I’d upgrade the notes I’m giving to my students and get them bound up into a proper book.

That idea soon expanded and I realised I’m going to make a series of them!

Here then, is the first of many I’m planning to release over the next few months.

In truth it’s not quite finished yet, but i did order a few copies today of my current work-in-progress as I’ve got a couple of clients on Saturday for one-to-one training so I thought that rather than giving them tatty single sheets I’d give them the current version of the book instead.

Give it a few weeks and I’ll have a much better version ready for a proper release so watch this space!

One-to-one training..

It seems that my one-to-one training sessions are proving quite popular at the moment. I’ve had several new enquiries in the past couple of weeks which has inspired me to up my game a bit for the new students booked for later this month.

I’ve already got a load of separate worksheets which I’d made to cover photography basics such as shooting modes, exposure, depth of field etc. but I’ve decided that as the sessions are becoming more regular I’m going to revisit them and make an updated/upgraded version in the form of a couple of proper books which I’ll get printed up properly and make them available at a small fee to attendees on the training sessions.

As mentioned over on the training pages until the end of June I’m offering one-to-one training at a reduced rate equivalent to a place on a group workshop, that’s saving about 25% over the usual price. Applies to bookings made until the end of June only so if you’re interested please get in touch asap.

All things digital..

Popped up to Highnam yesterday morning for the Gloucester area RPS meeting, which this time was mainly focused on a showing of the images from the RPS Digital Imaging Group print exhibition. I’d not really thought about joining any of the special interest groups up until now but as I’m a big fan of the digital workflow it seems like a good idea so I’m going to join that one this week.

I did take up the prints from my successful distinction last week and showed them to some of the members who were very complimentary about the standard of both the images and the presentation/print quality which was very encouraging, indeed I was encouraged by several people to start working towards my ‘A’ panel as soon as possible which was ace.   A couple of people were asking about my digital workflow and how much work I’d done on the mono conversions etc. so I thought I’d post a quick before/after example of one of the successful images from my panel here.

And by popular request, lots more examples of this type coming soon!
