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

I have been running various courses for some time. 2 day workshops and 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 2021 dates for the photography workshops are:

23rd/24th September - Almost Full


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
