These plugins are available on a trial basis, so you can try these techniques out yourself.

This is also a ?great opportunity to meet and greet other local photographers in the area. Get inspired for the up and coming wedding season. The Workshop is open to both Professional and Amateur photographers.

We look forward to meeting you all, its going to be a great Day with lots of hands on shooting. Look forward to seeing you all there!

Training days of this calibre regularly command fees in the hundreds, but once again Pete is running this as a “giving back to the profession” gig and keeping the cost at a minimum – Just ?75 per delegate, which represents amazing value for money.

The last time we had Pete here the workshop sold out very quickly indeed, so do yourself a favour and book this as soon as you can. ?We had many very disappointed photographers unable to attend the last event.

Cost: ?75 (Price includes a mid-afternoon lunch and refreshments)
