A little bit about my photography training background:

Prior to starting my business as a professional family and newborn photographer I trained and worked as a Fine Art and Photography teacher. I worked in high schools both here in the UK and in New Zealand.  I taught Art and Design to KS3 students, GCSE Fine Art, GCSE Art and Design and GCSE Photography, 6th form Photography and 6th form Fine Art.  During my teaching career I have set photography up in three different schools and was invited to design and lead a photography teachers conference in my very early years of teaching back in New Zealand.

I do believe photography is a subject that everyone can enjoy and relate too. It is a wonderfully creative language that can be further unlocked by understanding a few key skills. Understand how to find the ideal light, how to position your subject in that light and how to work out all of those fiddly little dials on your camera!!!!
