Matthew's photography workshops are about learning your camera inside out, immersing yourself in photography, trying new techniques, and having fun with your camera alongside like-minded people! Tutorials are 'in the field', where you are encouraged to experiment with your new skills to create eye-catching photos of some of London's most iconic sites!

You will always receive plenty of 1 to 1 time ensuring you master your camera, develop a proactive photography mindset and further your photographic eye. You will leave feeling confident about both the technical and creative aspects of photography, allowing you to capture unique and interesting images when photographing in the future.

All workshops are taught by Matthew, a London-based professional travel and landscape photographer, who has been a finalist in Travel Photographer of the Year on more than one occasion. "Nothing beats getting out there and exploring the world with camera in hand". Whether learning long exposures in Regent's Park in Autumn, photographing Richmond Park at sunrise or Tower Bridge at sunset, he can't wait to help you capture it!

This class was great! When arriving Matt, the teacher, immediately made everyone feel welcomed and relaxed, talked to us all about previous photography experiences and so immediately you could see this was going to be much more interactive than other classes i’ve been too where it can be a bit more lecture-style. There was a clear structure to the class, I particularly liked the focus on panning from a technical standpoint but also the lessons about sorry telling in the market were very helpful to know how to create unique shots. The location was also perfect and clearly one Matt knew very well! I now feel completely confident with my camera and can’t wait to get out again and use the techniques I learned!

Matthew is a wonderful teacher with an incredible eye for photography and I would highly recommend his workshops, whether you're a beginner or advanced and looking to learn more on style and composition. He taught me as a beginner and I now always attend a workshop before I travel to a new destination to learn new tips for shooting in different locations. Matt is incredibly knowledgeable on the technical side, whilst sharing his passion for photography and his love of exploring new and interesting places. In London we explored some of the most iconic sites alongside hidden wonders in the heart of the city. I particularly loved a sunrise workshop when he taught me (very patiently!) how to capture the changing light. I couldn't recommend Matt's photography workshops more highly!

Matt is such a great teacher and makes the process so fun - he knows how to break everything down and explain it in layman's terms, I never thought I would learn so quickly! Thanks, can't wait for the next one!

This was a great experience. Matthew was a fantastic teacher with great knowledge and experience in photography. His technical instructions were very clear and easy to understand and he gave brilliant suggestions about composition as well as tips and tricks. Richmond Park was absolutely beautiful, stunning landscape with lots of deer as well as swans and birds. Got some great photos and learned a lot!

Really enjoyed the evening and learnt really useful skills that I was later able to use to get the images I wanted, especially around focus and framing. Matthew has clearly put a lot of effort into learning about a variety of cameras to make sure he can help people with theirs, especially as the menus can be pretty confusing. Matthew is also really helpful, approachable and easy to talk to. It was easy to socially distance as appropriate, with a few glances at the camera to help guide the session. Oh, and of course I ended up with some good photos to top it all off.
