Many of my clients and people who follow my work ask me about photography training.

I have been running various courses for some time. Some are 1 or 2 day specific 1-2-1 training covering skills based on each client needs, as well as workshops for small groups.

There is also a closed Facebook group for all clients who have invested in training with me which allows for ongoing support.

The 2020 dates for the photography workshops will be published on the 18th July 2020


So what can we cover?

- ISO, shutter speed, aperture - the building blocks of great photography.

- Equipment - no you don't need to spend a fortune to get great results.

- Tips and techniques - working with dogs and animals has its challenges so we explore the skills needed and cover a whole array of techniques to get those shots that stand out.

- Action shots - we will look at composition, focusing and sharpness.

- Portraits - exploring light and techniques to get that unique look.

- How to deal with black dogs - often a challenge!

- Post production - should I shoot in Raw or Jpeg? What about Lightroom.

- The business aspects of professional photography

We will work with real dogs so you get invaluable hands on experience.

Here's what some recent clients had to say:

"I spent an enjoyable day with Carl earlier this year on a dog photography workshop. The whole day was very relaxed and informative, I loved how Carl shared lots of his little tips and genuinely wants to help you to learn" - JR

"Have just spent the most exhilarating weekend imaginable with Carl Thomas learning all about Dog Photography action and portrait - never realised how much I had been missing my photography over the last two years!" - HB

"The morning was theory and after a lovely lunch we headed out to photograph Carl's two dogs, Badger & Woody. Thank you Carl for an excellent day. I feel more confident about my photography now. Would recommend Carl if you are wanting to learn the techniques of taking good photos." - JH
