Teaching Photography has been my passion for many years. I got my first paid photography job in 1997 whilst doing my photography degree, but in 2002 I decided to give teaching a go and I haven’t looked back since.

I wanted to take all of this teaching experience and offer it up to a wider audience, so in 2012 I started The School of Photography and now I teach people all over the world this beautiful craft.

My qualifications are as follows:

With more than 17 years' experience in teaching photography, rest assured you're in the best possible hands.
