Norfolk Photography Weekend One-2-One,
Is it for me?
After being asked numerous times ‘will you ever be running a One-2-One session’ I have decided to do just that, this time though it is a full weekend packed full of shooting in the amazing county of Norfolk
The session will start in the Morning of the Saturday, we will meet then shoot until lunch then go straight back out and get more work done out in the field
Then on Sunday morning we will get up for the sunrise shoot and visit several locations over the morning, stopping for a cooked breakfast we will then head over to my editing suite to look into some editing techniques and finish of with printing images from the weekend.
Each day will have 6 hrs of tuition, so you know you are going to be making the most of the time spent on this amazing part of the UK’s coastline and amazing National park
Please get in contact before booking to arrange a suitable date and we will take it from there.
This workshop is aimed at anybody who has a very basic understanding of the manual controls on their DSLR/CSC camera, right through to people who know how to use their camera and just want to improve their photographic practice.
Where will the workshop start?
We can either start at a predetermined location that is convenient for you, or the session can start at Dibs’s house, you can then be driven in his car for the duration of the 1-2-1 session.
Just let me know what way you prefer when booking, or enquire beforehand to arrange the date of the session as well.
How do I teach on the Norfolk Photography Weekend One-2-One
The weekend is filled with landscape photography tuition out on location in Norfolk covering cliffs, big sandy beaches, rare sand dunes, boat wrecks, sea defenses, windpumps, windmills, WWII Airfields, river networks.
The possibilities of what to shoot are in abundance. We can chat about what you would like to photograph.
Each day we will have a cafe lunch/breakfast and finishing the weekend with an editing and printing session in the warmth of Dibs’s editing suite back in Norwich with a kettle and some snacks nearby.
Once we have finished editing, we will then chose from a variety of paper stocks and print out your favorite image of the day, so you will get to see the whole photography progress from thinking about what to shoot right through to holding the finished print to take away.
The session will focus on the landscapes in the well-known areas of the Norfolk coast and Broads depending on the start location you prefer.
This is one student to one tutor session, so you know you will get all the help that is needed to maximize your learning from the day.
The weekend will be solely tailored around your needs, so in brief, you will have somebody to show you what to look out for in creating those perfect images before you have even got the camera out of the camera bag.
All day while shooting we will be discussing the theory behind making work, what stands out and what sells, what makes a good image and how can we get that image we see into our cameras.
By the end of the session you have a full understanding of what all the setting on your camera do and get you awy from shooting aurtomatic modes, you will be taking control of your camera and the settings and letting the creativy start to flow.
