As well as concentrating on his own photography Colin also offers tuition sessions covering several different subjects at locations throughout the UK. Occasionally wildlife doesn't play ball but Colin will always do his best to get you into a position to enable you to get the shots, but it’s not just about trying to get the shots on the day. Colin will also teach you about the subjects and their welfare, the field craft required, your camera settings and explain how best to equip yourself for when you’re out on your own.

This skill set will give you and your photography chance to develop and improve.

 

Colin is happy to organise tuition sessions for individuals as well as small groups so please take a look at what’s on

offer and contact him if you are interested or if you have any questions. Other trips and group sizes can be

arranged upon request, please be aware that all one to ones and workshops are run with a strict code of ethics to
