I feel very honoured to have been invited to join Charlie Waite and the wonderfully talented team of photographers who lead workshops for Light and Land.

Although what I do takes a huge investment of time out in the field, I have found that many people are interested in the mechanisms behind the photographs. Most cameras today offer a multiple exposure option, and indeed, the majority of people who come along on the workshops do not have a 5D3. There are still ways of achieving interesting shapes and colours without the aforementioned blend modes.

I will be leading my workshops with Light and Land alongside Doug Chinnery who  is very familiar with ICM (intentional camera movement) which is achievable on any camera with the addition of an ND filter and a very easy way to start exploring an alternative approach to landscape photography.

Details of my workshops with Light and Land can be found here and are detailed below.

FEEDBACK

Thanks Valda.
Thoroughly enjoyed the day, despite the flat lighting and the freezing temperatures. Always good to learn from masters of their craft like you and Doug. You explain what can be a difficult process so lucidly, thats why I keep coming back.
All being well I'll see you in Bath.

"I wanted to congratulate Valda and Terry on running an excellent bluebell workshop in Marlborough last week. I enjoyed the workshop and really liked the mix of practical photography and post processing (with breakfast). They were both extremely helpful and professional.” - Sue

First of all, many thanks for the workshop. It really was terrific. The material in the email is hugely helpful too and I am building up enough experience with the techniques to be more and more pleased with the results. Having a print from the day was so helpful as the range of tones and impact of my shot was far greater in the print than the detail apparent on the screen. Terry did sterling work coming in at the last minute and has been very helpful with a couple of my images since and I’m most grateful.

As ever, seeing what others are doing and playing around with new techniques is good fun and helps kickstart new directions. I haven’t that many shots from the day that I was really pleased with, but the 5 or so that got me excited I’m very proud of. Thank you so much for your time, attention and encouragement. I’ve now booked the trip to Ghent and Bruges in December and look forward to it with great enthusiasm.

Thank you for the course and tuition yesterday, you and Doug have a teaching style that is quite unique today, you both let the day flow along and if we need help or quidance you are both available, sometimes tutors are quite overpowering "you do it this way" maybe that works with traditional photography, ( which may be the reason why landscape photography is so stereotyped) but ICM and ME work is more relaxed

 

ONE TO ONES

Although I now undertake a considerable number of workshops for Light and Land, covering various locations, I still get asked about one to one tuition.

I understand that there are many reasons why people might prefer a more personalised approach; obviously time can be spent in a much more targeted way with very individual tuition.

The prices below are based on any location within an hour of my home in East Sussex.  I am happy to travel further afield and I calculate my expenses at £35 per extra hour to cover fuel and other costs (and pro rata for part hours).

Weekends are difficult for me, and while I will schedule a workshop on a Saturday or a Sunday if no other possibility exists, family commitments mean I have to price them to take into account arrangements that will need to be made to enable me to get away.

Full Day (Week Day) for one person (about 8 hours tuition) – £600.

Full Day (Saturday) for one person (about 8 hours tuition) – £875

If you would like to team up with a friend or friends for a bespoke day I charge the following:

Full day (Week Day) for 2 people – £375 per person

Full day (Week Day) for 3 people – £300 per person

Full day (Week Day) for 4 people – £250 per person

Full day (Saturday) for 2 people – £600 per person

Full day (Saturday) for 3 people – £450 per person

Full day (Saturday) for 4 people – £375 per person

The prices above cover tuition and all drinks, snacks, lunch etc. I believe that a review/critique session is vitally important - especially when starting out with multiple exposure/ICM so I like to use some of the time looking at images made and suggesting how they might be edited or improved.

Any questions, please do not hesitate to email me. I try to answer all emails within 24 hours, but if I am away teaching, it may take a little longer.
