I am a passionate Photography Tutor who has trained through college, university, employment, self employment and through constant self teaching. I think it is important to constantly practice and learn as a photographer, teaching others requires me to keep my technique up to date with high quality lesson content. I have a very open style of teaching and encourage people of varying abilities to get in touch or to attend a workshop, I have a camera that can be borrowed by those who don't have a DSLR or studio flash compatible camera. PM me if you have any questions. Lots more references can be found on my photography profile 'GemmieV' [link removed]

Ongoing Mentoring Service

Regular support for learning photographers is available via my mentoring service, we use Skype and dropbox to converse and to critique images from your latest photo shoot, we will look at your lighting, composition, focus, colour balance and much more. We will build a plan on elements to work on for your next shoot so you can improve your technique with a focused, unique plan built just for you, wherever you are based.

Below are images taken on my workshops by me and also by attendee's with permission and credits to those involved.
