‘Inspiration, Information, Innovation’

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
Elliott Erwitt

What others have said about Nick’s workshops:

“A quick thank you for the Fine Arts Photoshop workshop conducted over the weekend. I left feeling that I will now be able to use this software to good effect and with a confidence that should enable me to enhance my photographic images well beyond a fundamental crop and curves adjustment. I would be happy to recommend the course to any aspiring photographer seeking to advance their workflow and Photoshop techniques”.

“Another great workshop, thanks. I continue to be inspired and over-awed by your expertise and amazing photography”.
Heather B

“I thought I would drop you a line to say how very much I enjoyed your Lightroom course this weekend. I’m thrilled with the knowledge that I got out of it. I think you covered just the right amount of information and I can’t wait to try it out on some of my older photos. Once again thanks for providing me with the paradigm shift in approach and firing up my enthusiasm for Lightroom”.
Rob L

“Thanks for today, it was the best “how- to Photoshop” workshop I have been on.”
Tania T

"I was amazed at how much valuable information I was able to gain in a couple of hours with you at your Creative Workflow evening. In a relatively short period of time you were able to share practical insights into not only the how of creative workflow and what to do with an image in post, but more importantly, the why and the thought process behind it. Your extensive knowledge, experience and passion were evident and I came away from the workshop incredibly inspired. Looking forward to attending more of your workshops soon (in fact I have just booked my next one!).


Thanks again"



Hi Nick

I attended last weekend’s workshop on B&W, thank you so much, it was seriously the best editing workshop I’ve attended for a very long time. You made it so easy to understand.

Kind regards
