We teach photography on a range of levels. If you are a beginner who has never taken their camera from its box or an advanced user keen on learning new techniques, we tailor our lessons to your needs and requests. We teach in our gallery and apply the learned outdoors. A beginner’s package of three lessons (60 min each) is recommended. Cost is £25/hour, £75 in total.

We also teach Lightroom post-editing and continuous tuition with set tasks.

Both Irene and Duncan can be booked for photography talks on themes ranging from Infrared and black and white landscape (Duncan) to

Wildlife Photography and Conservation and Painting with Light (Irene)


Workshops are posted on here on a regular basis.
