attend a workshop

about workshops

Each workshop typically lasts around 4 hours. Each participant will also get a copy of my Ebook (A step-by-step guide to Light Painting) and a goodie bag of LEDs to take away at the end. This is the most in-depth Workshop that I offer.

The first 30 minutes will be spent talking about the theory behind light painting and looking at how we set up our cameras for a long exposure / light painting session. Then the real fun can begin. We will then spend the remainder of the workshop creating light paintings using the weird and wonderful devices and tools that I will be bringing along on the day.

If you would rather attend the workshop without bringing along all of your photography gear that is absolutely fine. I always bring along my camera gear to document the work that we make during the workshop so you can use my camera if you prefer. I would however encourage participants to bring along their camera gear (if you have a camera / tripod / cable release) as I believe you will have a more meaningful learning experience if you are setting up your own camera.

As the weather can be rather unpredictable, I will be hosting the workshop at a great indoor venue which will allow us darkness and plenty of space to make some really exciting work. Please don’t worry if you have never tried this technique before as my workshops are designed so that anyone can understand exactly how the process works.

Sample images of some work created during recent workshops can be found above. Please note that nearly all of this work was created by people who had never tried light painting before so please believe me when I say these Workshops are suitable for complete beginners. 😊

Cancellations and refunds: Please make sure you are 100% able to attend before booking as we are unable to offer refunds. Instead we are able to reschedule your booking for another workshop date of your choosing or offer you a credit note to the full value of the purchase. This is available up to 14 days before the workshop event takes place. Cancellation requests made with 13 days or less prior to any workshop will receive a credit note to the value of 50% of the booking fee.

if you need to cancel your workshop booking within a month of the event taking place, a refund will not be offered but you will instead be offered a place on a future workshop date that works for you. If you need to cancel within 3 weeks of the event taking place sadly this will mean a forfeit of the entire fee paid.

I currently have three main workshop packages available:
