Photography

Do you own a camera but feel you're not getting the most out of it?

 

For example, why is it when you’re on the beach with your family, or taking a woodland walk, or you’re in a city and you see an amazing building, on a beautiful street with the sun in just the right place, you reach for your camera to capture the moment, only to find when you look at the pictures later that the sun on the beach put everyone in silhouette, and you cant see their happy smiling faces? Or the colours in that wood just don’t look the same. As for that amazing building in the street, it’s too hard to get the 'Wow' shot?

 

If so, our exclusive CraftyMonkies Photography Workshop, run by Jake Whiteley, is for you! Our fun-filled, easy to follow Photographic Workshops will teach you how to take much better photographs that will keep those memories alive for years to come. You will learn how to properly engage with the camera, understand about how to best work with and move away from the default automatic settings! We look at how best to frame your subjects and landscapes better and capture that person or place in that special moment in time.

 

No previous experience is needed! Our tutor is Jake Whiteley, a professional photographer who’s worked with celebrities, sportsmen, families, landscapes and brides! His work has featured in print and digital media advertising campaigns and he is regularly booked for private events (if you would like to book him for a portrait session, or event please contact us on hello@craftymonkies.com). Jake has a burning passion for photography: it's rare to see him without a camera! He has so much he wants to teach so that you can experience the joy he does every time he looks through his lens. Even if you know how to use your camera, but still feel there is more to learn, please come along and meet some like-minded new friends along the way!

 

Capture the moment and indulge your imagination! Without doubt, your photography will improve after attending a CraftyMonkies Photography Workshop. See below for what we have on offer. Different days, different themes, different locations! See you all soon CraftyMonkies - we can’t wait to welcome you along!
