If you want to learn or improve your photography and Photoshop skills, I will be happy to hear from you. I teach all levels, ensuring classes are suitable and accessible to beginners, enthusiasts or experts looking to refresh their digital photography knowledge.

You will receive a free consultation session prior to your lessons to determine your photography needs and where I can design classes especially for you.

I hold a current CRB certificate and teach all ages.

You must have your own camera (compact, hybrid or SLR).


I am a professional photographer and photography teacher providing classes in various locations in the North West. I teach all levels and am particularly experienced with beginners.

I have over 20 years' photography experience, an MA in Photography and a recognised teaching qualification, so you can be sure you are in safe hands.

I travel out to students within a 10-mile radius of Bolton and can also provide elearning, if required.
