All future workshops will be run with Doug Chinnery, the details of which can be found at

We are currently in the fortunate position of having our workshops sell out from our mailing list - very rarely do they get advertised on social media. The best way to gain a space is to sign up for the mailing list on our contact us page and specify the locations that interest you.

For everybody's convenience we wish to keep below the VAT threshold and for this reason we tend to list one tour at the beginning of each month (the threshold is based on a rolling turnover). However, we understand that people may be curious about the plans we have for future tours before committing themselves to a place on a new offering. Therefore, we detail below our plans for the coming year. Although we are reasonably confident the dates and locations will not change, it remains a possibility.

If you are interested in any of the tours below, we would advise you to email us in order that you can receive prior notification before the launch. Thank you.

FOR ONE TO ONES, see bottom of page

The tours below are not yet bookable but will be launched in the coming months. Please click through below to advise us which tour you would like to be notified about. Thank you.



A note about prices. As my workload has increased in recent years, the time I have available for my own creative endeavours has become vanishingly small. The prices quoted below are not necessarily what I believe I am worth, rather they represent the value I place on my dwindling free time.



Although I now undertake a considerable number of workshops for Light and Land and privately with Doug, 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) – £800

Full Day (weekend) for one person (about 8 hours tuition) – £950

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 – £475 per person

Full day (Week Day) for 3 people – £375 per person

Full day (Week Day) for 4 people – £300 per person

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

Full day (Saturday) for 3 people – £500 per person

Full day (Saturday) for 4 people – £450 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.

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
