Commissions & Tuition

As a professional photographer and a lecturer I am available for commissioned work  and individual tuition.


I’m available for commissioned work and projects that relate to anything to do with the land, those who work on it and its natural history. I have worked on commissions for County Council Countryside Services in the production of calendars, promotional material, postcards, illustrative material for natural history leaflets and the documentation of major land reclamation schemes. I have also supplied images for various publications. I have an extensive archive of natural history and landscape images which are available on request.

I have also written extensively on photography and the natural world and as can be seen from this web site writing is integral to my work and I’m available for any writing commissions or magazine articles related to these areas.


I’m also available for one to one or small group tuition. These are always tailored to individual needs and can be either studio or location based.

The still  relatively new field of digital photography can seem daunting to many and the numerous settings on seemingly more complex digital cameras (compact or DSLR) can be an obstacle in releasing personal creativity. A few hours with professional tuition can put you firmly in control of your equipment and free yourself for the more rewarding aspect of producing fine images.

Once the camera becomes second nature to you, learning what makes a good photograph in the field is the next challenge. How to look with a fresh eye and translate what you see into a fine composition and therefore an image to be proud of, is a skill that can be learnt given the right guidance. A day on location with professional tuition can make all the difference to your photography and give you far more confidence and enjoyment.

I have run many one day courses in and around my home in South Wales in addition to longer more concentrated courses on the Welsh Islands of Skokholm and Flat Holm and the Scottish Island of Mull.

My current day rate is £300 (£175 for a half day). Whilst some people prefer the sole attention of one to one tuition others are happy to come together in small groups (no more than four) to spread the cost.

Framed and unframed prints
