Whether you decide to join me for a full day master class, or a half-day workshop, I will be on hand to help you individually with your camera settings, and techniques. We will regularly review the images on your camera together so I can help guide you with how to improve your next set of shots.
I will teach you the tips and tricks I have learnt over the years not only on my camera but also with the animal behaviour and how to anticipate the bird's movements so you can nail those beautiful portrait shots and those epic birds in flight shots too!

"I found Rachel really helpful and easy to get along with. She tailored the workshop around my abilities and gave me loads of useful tips. I'm more than happy to recommend her."
"My daughter and I had a workshop training session with Rachel. She was very thorough and we had a great time learning about using our cameras away from the basic settings and introducing the use of more advanced functions."
"I decided I needed to take photography lessons to learn more about my camera and I have to say Rachel has been amazing. Rachel explains everything so well and is very patient. I have just changed my camera so will be heading back for some more lessons. If you are thinking about having lessons, I would say book in now!"
