I offer one to one and small group photography workshops, courses and tuition.

Whether you’re a complete beginner just getting to grips with a new camera, a keen amateur wanting to take the next steps, or even a seasoned professional, my photography courses and workshops are tailored to meet your individual needs and help you to capture stunning images. 

As an award-winning professional photographer with extensive local knowledge, I run all of my photography workshops personally. My aim is simple; to inspire and encourage you to take your photography to the next level whilst taking in some of the finest scenery the UK has to offer. 

Photography courses are available both local to me in the stunning Peak District National Park and further afield.

What do people say about my photography workshops?

Francis took me on a workshop in Hope Valley just outside Sheffield. It was perfect from start to finish. Not only is he fully knowledgeable in his craft, he is great to work with. After 5 minutes I felt I had known him for years. He took me to fantastic locations and give me instruction on how to take wonderful images with the prevailing conditions. Any question was answered quickly and clearly and at my level. I also had some Post Processing instruction with him which I highly recommend. Francis gave me a practical lesson on how to bring the best out of my images. We used one of his images and then worked on several of mine that I had taken earlier. My wife, my biggest critic, has now said my photos are now longer flat and boring but they pop out at you. That’s the best praise I could ask for. I look forward to having another workshop with Francis.     – Matthew
