I am very pleased to announce my new workshop ‘the Complete Wildlife Photographer’ workshop offering personal 1:1 photographic mentoring and tuition for photographers with an interest in wildlife photography looking to take their work to the next level.
The workshop is individually tailored to meet your specific photographic needs. Whether you are just starting out, looking to improve your wildlife photography or have ambitions to make a career as a professional wildlife photographer, this is the workshop for you.
I adopt a modular approach, enabling you to select areas of specific interest to you including the following modules:
- The anatomy of what makes an award winning wildlife image – the key ingredients
- The essential gear you need for wildlife photography – cameras, lenses, tripods
- The technical basics – aperture, shutter speed, ISO
- Getting the best from your digital SLR – the optimum settings for wildlife photography
- Use of natural light
- How to process your images successfully
- Building a portfolio
- Where to go to photograph wildlife both in the UK and overseas
- Getting your work published
- Building a website
- Promoting your work on social media
- Competitions – which to enter and how to be successful
Each mentoring session typically runs between an hour to an hour and a half depending on the topic.
There’s no need to select modules in advance. Many clients find it helpful to decide the areas on which they wish to focus following an initial introductory session to identify your objectives. During this session we will discuss your individual photographic needs. We will also review some of your images together and constructive feedback provided. Based on our discussions, we can then decide the programme for the rest of the day.
Taking place at my home on the South coast overlooking the sea, I aim to make my workshops both fun and informative. I will endeavour to work hard with you to take your photography to the next level.
Here’s what Phil, one of my clients who has already been on my workshop has to say:
‘Having been a keen amateur nature photographer for some time, I felt I needed some expert insight and guidance to get me to the next level. I contacted Jules and he arranged for a Wildlife Photography Mentor Workshop over the course of a day. I knew I would learn a great deal, but the day surpassed my expectations. Jules tailored the day to my needs and we covered a lot of ground at just the right pace. He was generous in sharing his knowledge of technical and business aspects of wildlife photography and thanks to a portfolio review, I am now more critical about the images I take. If you feel you could benefit from the insights of a professional wildlife photographer, I would thoroughly recommend Jules’s workshop’
Thanks Phil. You’re very kind.
