‘At The Coalface’
A Wedding Photography Workshop
January 30th – 31st 2020
National Mining Museum, Newtongrange, Edinburgh, Scotland.
Who is it for?
*Wedding photographers in their first few years (or longer) looking for a fresh perspective and new skills.
*New photographers looking to make the jump into wedding photography
*Photographers looking for some new inspiration and to try out some fresh ideas within a small group.
I’m a product of many years worth of trial and error. I want to open up my head and share my experiences, tips and tricks to make your life as a wedding photographer easier on the day, from the first contact with your client right through to the editing workflow and delivery.
This will be a practical hands-on workshop. All attendees will come away armed with more skills and knowledge to go more confidently into their next wedding shoot. In a small group of 12 we will recreate some of the most challenging situations we face as photographers and will work together in a friendly pack, discussing, shooting and learning how best to problem-solve with different types of light, couples and location as well as how best to manage people and time on the big day.
The location will be set up as a ‘real’ live wedding and we will cover everything in detail from approach to Bridal prep right through to evening party. There will be a Bride + Groom as models and during shoot and group edit sessions there will be ample chance for you to build portfolio work at this super cool industrial venue as well as on location at a beautiful nearby woodland on day two. This will be a great chance to network and learn along with other photographers in a friendly environment.
The venue will have food and drinks available at all times during the day at their cafe and at the end of day two an impromptu meet up at one of the local pubs will be arranged if there is enough interest.
Ongoing feedback from myself via the facebook group and one to one mentoring also available/

A Brief History
I studied film and photography in Edinburgh and started my career as a junior photographer on a local paper, after a steep learning curve I quickly moved to the national broadsheet press and magazines which took me on assignment to the US, Russia and Europe as well as all over the UK and Scotland, it was an exciting time for a young photographer and I learned a lot about building visual stories, working to deadlines, dealing with people, problem-solving and shooting in all conditions and under all manner of stress.
After a few years in print journalism and hundreds of photo-assignments under my belt, I jumped ship without a thought and never looked back. I ran away to become a wedding photographer.
400 Weddings and Elopements later and I’m still 100% sure its what I want to do. I’ve shot in all manner of venues and all sizes of wedding and I’m keen to pass on this experience in a ‘real-time’, no fluff style.
I still attend photography workshops and feel this is now a vital part of my business, the industry is ever-changing and now more than ever we have to challenge ourselves creatively, learn from others and make solid connections within the community if we want to stay in the game. My favourite is Photography Farm, who run an event in Scotland and London each Spring as well as a trade show in Brighton in October. They bring in some of the biggest names in the wedding photography world to teach and inspire and I highly recommend checking them out if you are keen to step up your game even more.
