My Digital Photography Fundamentals Workshops are back and are better than ever!

MY WORKSHOPS ARE BACK! (Read more....)
NEW FORMAT & VENUE

If there is any positive of the Covid-19 restrictions is that I was able to sit back and re-structure this popular workshop. I listened to your feedback and also my own thoughts.

NEW VENUE
A lot of people asked if I was ever going to host the workshops nearer the south coast rather than here in the hills. I took a while to find the perfect location, but many thanks to Boogie Bounce Portugal, an ideal location has been found.

The new location is Parchal which is near to both Portimão and Lagoa within easy reach of many. Google Map

NEW DAY
Not everybody could make a weekday and therefore, I have moved the workshops to a Saturday!

NEW FORMAT
I couldn’t help notice that over the years many people struggled with the full-day almost bootcamp style format of the workshops and have therefore decided to split the workshops into two parts. Each part is four hours and in the afternoon. The current format is there is a workshop on the 2nd Saturday of every month which alternates between parts one and two. For example, if part one was to fall on the 2nd Saturday of June, then part two would be the 2nd Saturday of July. This gives ample time to practice the skills learnt before the 2nd part.

Spaces are limited to 8 attendees and loan cameras are also available should you require. The cost is just €55 per person.

Booking is already available from November 13th and for all of 2022, BOOK HERE!GIFT VOUCHERS AVAILABLE HERE

Here is the taster video for the workshop…

Overnight Rain Has Sprung the Esteva & Lavender Into Bloom

Both the Esteva (Gum Rock Rose) and French Lavender locally in the hills has been flowering for sometime, but the overnight rain has seemed to have given it a real kick start. This morning the hills are covered in white and purple carpets. You can imagine what the damp air smells like, it’s amazing!

I’ve often used these reminders of days gone by in my Photography so thought it apt to share a selection of them.

Most of these photos are available in the Web Shop.

NEW FORMAT & VENUE

Whilst behind the scenes I am busy simmering away organising something bigger and better here in the Algarve for when life after Covid-19 arrives, I have decided to put together a workshop that I can deliver online using the power of the Zoom Video Conference Platform.

So I have great pleasure in announcing my Adobe Lightroom Classic Workshop in a 1 to 1 format (multiple people from the same household are invited at no extra cost). A great way to learn the next step of photography whilst we remain in lockdown, I’m taking bookings now and the workshops start from 25th February.

Question, What Is Better Than A Little Owl………..?

…..Two Little Owls!

MY WORKSHOPS ARE BACK! (Read more....)
NEW FORMAT & VENUE

I posted on my Facebook Page a few days ago that I was ecstatic that after 4.5 years of living here I had heard and spotted a Little Owl close to the house. Some of you will say, “So what? They are everywhere!”, and you’d be right. The Little Owl is very common in the Algarve, however, even though the land around the Quinta is perfect for them, they have been absent, the closest I’ve found is about 1km away – SEE HERE.

I heard one this afternoon so grabbed the binoculars and spotted one sitting on the dead Cork Oak that I suspected it would choose as a nest spot. I didn’t realise at the time that I was looking at a pair (to be fair to Emma, she did say she heard 2 calling each other a few days ago). The tree is about 400 meters away from the Quinta so grabbed the camera with the 80-400mm lens, even so, the tree is still a long way away. Can you spot them both?
