Training Workshops

Would you like to learn how to take beautiful photographs of your children? Images of which you can be proud? How about getting to grips with the best way to use natural light and understanding your camera?

I can help you take better images, give you ideas for how to improve your approach, and simplify things down so you can remember what to do if your mind goes blank or you simply can’t recall what the manual said.

So many of us have received a digital camera as a present but still resort to our phones, particularly on holiday, because we simply haven’t had time to understand how our cameras work? Do you keep missing those special moments and feel frustrated?

Why not benefit from my years of experience and learn how to use your camera properly, understand and then move it off the basic settings and get a little more creative? I will share tips on how to get the best from your camera (and your children!) during my workshops which will be launched in Autumn 2019.

I knew of Suzy through a friend and started to follow her on social media. I admired Suzy’s work especially her creative child portraiture. She inspired me enormously so I asked her if she would be prepared to give me some one to one tuition. We began by looking at what I had learned in college and how I was using that knowledge in the images I was producing. I love Suzy’s black and white work and it became a passion. My problem is that I am not technical and knew nothing about editing software. Suzy’s tuition was invaluable in teaching me how to edit my images perfectly and professionally. Suzy and I catch up regularly and she is always there if I have a question or need some inspiration!

I have a beautiful studio at the rear of our home in Ben Rhydding where the Workshops will take place, each will last for a half day with a maximum of 4 delegates; This will allow me to spend plenty of time with everyone individually.

If you are an absolute beginner I can help explain the basics, teach you how to look for the right light and get you shooting pretty quickly. For those with some knowledge I can talk you through my approach, help you adapt what you have been doing and answer those questions which you might feel a bit embarrassed to ask. As a technophobe myself I have easy ways of explaining the complexities of your camera!

If you are interested in booking, or perhaps buying your other half or interested son or daughter the course as a present (I have vouchers!) then please get in touch, using the form below, so I can email you a full PDF containing all the course information.

My daughter Poppy; who is thirteen, is a beginner in photography, I wanted to find a professional photographer who might be able to offer a photography session for teens. I found Suzy Mitchell. In her lovely house and studio in Ben Rhydding, Poppy attended a 3 hour one to one photography morning.She learnt how to use aperture and ISO, depth of field, focussing, leading lines, framing, a bit about editing and most importantly how to use her camera to its full potential. Suzy made poppy feel very at ease, she came away with lots of useful tips and inspired. I would highly recommend Suzy for any young enthusiastic photographers out there. We will definitely be booking again.
