It can include theory and practical sessions and is available in Alvor, Portimão, Alvor or at a location of your choice in the Algarve region. These sessions are also applicable for learning to use your Smartphone and/or Tablet camera and can also cover Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Many of my clients also use these sessions for location guiding, perhaps you have some great sunset shots to capture, I can assist with the locations.

The great thing about these sessions is that there is no maximum number of sessions you can chose to have allowing you to learn photography at your own pace.

How many people can attend a session?
The sessions are available for up to 5 people. This is to ensure that the correct amount of time can be given to each participant

The sessions can cover any number of topics from basic photography through to more advanced control and also post-editing.  Clients often use these sessions for advice and assistance with post-editing in Lightroom and Photoshop

Can these sessions be used as photo tours for locations to shoot?
Absolutely, in fact, most of my clients use these sessions for just that, guiding to locations with expertise available to assist with the shooting.

What time do the sessions begin and end?
Completely up to you, I can tailor them around your requirements. Each session is approximately 3 hours long

What language are the sessions delivered in?
Currently, the sessions are only available in English, but I also speak Portuguese to a “good” level.  Therefore, if you are Portuguese with an understanding of English, this can also be a possibility.

Where is the location?
I do not have a physical location and therefore, the location for theory workshops can change depending on the time of year and availability.

  • positive review  Would recommend the Fundamentals Workshop for anyone with digital SLR. The course uses both classroom and practical sessions to explain how to get the full and best use out of the camera. Craig delivers the subject with such enthusiasm.

  • positive review  What an amazing day spent at the Photography Workshop. I have loved photography for years, but could never venture past the Auto button! Craig simplified the mystique of photography and has given me the confidence to get out and really make the most of my camera!

  • positive review  I've been an amateur photographer for years but decided to attend Craig's "Photography Fundamentals Workshop” having purchased a new camera and not really getting the best results with it. Craig takes you through how the different functions on your camera affect the output and how to use this to achieve taking the photographs you want. This has given me the confidence to experiment with settings that I had previously avoided. I also realised that over the years I had misunderstood several functions, so it was good to learn their correct use. The workshop includes both classwork and practical photography in the local village so you can put into practice what you have learnt as you go along. Craig is very knowledgeable and I learnt a huge amount, I am very grateful and thoroughly recommend the workshop.

  • positive review  Anne and I really enjoyed Craig's workshop. It was prefessionally designed and presented, very helpful and a lot of fun. We learned a lot and are much more comfortable switching off the "auto" settings! Highly recommended for beginners and those with more experience. Well done.

  • positive review  What a wonderful experience! A great one-on-one workshop for me, a luxury, but I learned so much. Craig is a wonderful teacher and mentor, everything is very easygoing and very well explained. I would highly recommend Crag and his workshop! It is a great way to learn the more 'complicated' issues on a DSLR, well they turned out not to be so complicated .. Fun day... am now of France to put the knowledge into practice! And Craig, hope to see you soon again for a follow up!
