Jamie will help you create images which are quite literally larger than life. Develop your technical knowledge as well as creativity to capture pin sharp, close-up macro images to a professional standard.

This workshop is a hands on practical session so you can develop a deep understanding of macro photography.I will keep the group size small so you’ll get plenty of one to one attention and feedback so you can improve at a quick pace.

What kit will I need

The Macro Photography workshop requires participants to bring a professional compact camera or digital SLR camera and a tripod.If you don’t own a camera of your own – just let us know what equipment you’ll need before your course so we can arrange this.
In terms of prior knowledge, ideally you will just need a basic understanding of camera lenses, shutter speed, aperture and ISO. Not sure you have the basics mastered? just give Jamie a e-mail and we can get you up to speed before the workshop.

*If you have your own macro kit or lenses and not sure what to bring? just e-mail Jamie and he will advise you*

On completion of the course you will have breathtaking macro images for your portfolio. The skills and professional tips (learnt from Jamies years of experience) you will gather in this one day workshop that will stay with you forever. Jamie will offer unlimited student support to each and every one of our pupils. If you have any questions or would like some feedback on your work, Jamie is always here to help and will answer all e-mail in 1 hour max (usually quicker) .

Part of this course you will get highly detailed technical and creative resource guides to Macro Photography both before and after the session.

The workshop will be on location exploring both man made and natural objects,please bring good walking shoes (minimal walking on flat ground) and a waterproof jacket (hopefully we will not need it!) and a packed lunch.
