Lakeland Photo Workshops with Tony West

Bespoke One to One Workshops

This is now my best selling workshop by far!

Having successfully run these workshops for the last few years it's become clear that coaching groups is quite often a compromise. It's rare to find a similar level of experience throughout the same group and I often feel guilty that technical issues are sometimes brushed over with the aim of keeping the majority fully engaged. I was asked to provide bespoke coaching by more than a few enthusiasts and it became immediately apparent how effective this format works.

ONE to ONE workshops are tailored for users of DSLRs who wish to improve their skills, learn new techniques and tackle their subject with greater confidence. These workshops will appeal to those who have a passion for photography whatever they prefer shooting. For some it may lead to the pursuit of a professional career but for many it’s just a great way to successfully take their photography to the next level.
With bespoke it's a case of whatever it is you want I will endeavour to tailor the day to suit those needs whether it's an entry level 'Getting Past Auto' or maybe something more advanced like shooting portraits with studio lighting. It all starts with a phone call to establish where you are up to and what you want to achieve. To help you decide I offer a few 'set menu' options which may be a good starting point for your workshop.

FEE £350.00

The above fee excludes models which can be arranged for £75.00 per half day if that's what you would like to shoot. Alternatively you are welcome to provide your own.
