'My Family Story' SmartPhone Photography Workshop

Next workshop will be in Autumn 2019, 10.30-12.30 in Littlecote, Bucks. £50.

This family photography course is for people who want to take better photographs of their own children and by doing so tell their family story in photographs. This does not mean making the 'perfect' photograph. This means thinking about the details in your family life which makes it yours and how to record the imperfections of our family life. These are the bits that you'll really want to remember in years to come.

The truth is that these days we take our cameras everywhere, on our phones. The cameras have been much improved and as the saying goes 'the best camera is the one you have with you'. That said, if we know how to use them a little better and how to create an image, then we really can document our family lives effectively. I haven't taken my 'big' camera on our last few family holidays but I love the pictures and the story they tell about our adventures.

Workshop content: 


The basics 

We will talk about the elements of your life that you want to record and have practical solutions for photographing them.

There are some simple ways that you can improve your photography simply by understanding the settings on your smart phone camera as well as some helpful editing tools and apps. 





Understanding light is the key to improving your everyday photography. This workshop will teach you how to position yourself to take better photographs of your subject, make you think about how the light affects your subject and how you can use light to enhance the photograph.





Composition is critical for creating a compelling image of your children. This workshop will introduce the basic rules of composition which will have an immediate impact on improving your images. 

You can apply these to any type of image not just that on your iPhone.

The workshop is limited to 5 people so that you can get the most out of the session and ask lots of questions as well as practice some of the techniques.

After the workshop we will share our ideas and new images in a Facebook group so that you can continue learning. 

Located at my home in Littlecote, nr Stewkley in Buckinghamshire.
