FYLDE COASTLINE. Sat 3rd Feb to Sun 4th Feb 2018


In conjunction with Colin Jarvis Photography I am pleased to offer another Long Exposure weekend. This type of photography using the Lee Big and Little Stoppers can create wonderfully evocative and moving images and particularly suit a minimalist, black and white treatment. Colin and Neil are both very experienced in producing award winning long exposure imagery. Both have recently been published in national magazines including the prestigious Lee Filters Xposure magazine. There are only six places available for this intensive weekend of camera craft and digital darkroom skills. Saturday will be spent on location at Fleetwood wrecks, Mary's shell, Blackpool and Lytham developing compositional skills and long exposure techniques. With a ratio of three clients to one workshop leader there will be plenty of opportunity to experiment and hone your craft. Sunday will be spent in Preston post processing the images captured during the previous day. Post processing is often overlooked but it is a fundamental part of the image making process. With two experienced tutors imagine what can be covered in a whole day of Lightroom and Photoshop tuition, this is worth the cost of the workshop alone! Computers will be available or you can use your own laptop. You will also be able to produce a professionally produced print from the workshop that will be competition size (just ready for club competitions!). Price £190   CONTACT Colin on 07938184088  Neil 07988173840 

VENICE. Friday 9th November to Thursday 15th November 2018.


The City of Venice is a photographers paradise. It lends itself to all forms of photography, street, architecture, candid, abstract, textures, but particularly Black and White and especially Long Exposure photography, a style of photography that Colin and I are both passionate about. You can see a selection of my images above, taken on a recent trip i made to Venice. Colin and I have visited Venice on a number of occasions, we are both visiting again in November this year to ensure that you will get the most from the workshop in terms of locations and viewpoints. This workshop will give you a fantastic opportunity to explore Venice outside of the holiday season, it will be quieter, there may be mist and of course St. Marks Square might be flooded (a photographer's dream!). The workshop is limited to 8 clients which gives a ratio of 4 clients per workshop leader. Bring your laptop as there will be opportunity to post process your images with the help of Colin and myself. Colin and I will be running this 6 night, 5 full day workshop to the stunning city of Venice between the dates of Friday 9th November to Thursday 15th November 2018. The cost will be £1200 and we will be staying in a centrally located, quality hotel on a B&B basis. There will be no single room supplement and non photography partners are welcome to attend at the reduced rate of £200. The price does not include flights and you will be responsible for booking your own flight and transfer from the airport along with travel insurance. We plan to rendezvous at 6pm on the Friday, it would be very helpful if your flight arrives before this. Further details along with booking terms and conditions can be found by clicking the Book Now button. I hope you will be able to join Neil and I for this fantastic opportunity to explore this wonderful location at a leisurely pace and with a group of like minded individuals. A deposit of £600 will be required to secure your place. This is refundable up to 2 months before the workshop date.
