Hi there, I'm Nancy and I'm a Wedding & Commercial Photographer based in Lancashire.
I work mainly with my husband Andy who is a Landscape, Commercial & Still Life Photographer and takes National and International Workshops.
We both have well over a decade of experience in Photography & love to pass on our knowledge & love for photography. We are known for quality over quantity, and we also think this is a good motto for everything in life too.
In 2023/24 we will be running Photography Workshops/Courses/Tutorials once again & all that we ask is that you have a genuine interest in wanting to learn photography.

REVIEWS FOR TEACHING:
LESLEY IN LANCASHIRE
As a lady of a certain age computers were not something we had in school and didn’t really feature in my career until maybe I hit my 40s. So when I say I am not computer savvy it’s no understatement. As my love of photography developed ( excuse the pun) over the last 5 years it was obvious I needed to get to grips with post-processing.
My husband bought me an Adobe subscription a few years ago and I set to with the magazines trying to get to grips with the mystery that is Photoshop/Lightroom. I gave up when I couldn’t even work out how to import the image! Then Nancy came to the rescue. A gift voucher from my daughter and zoom enabled me to have several 1:2:1 lessons working on my images.
Nancy is so patient and can talk in words people like me understand. I actually managed to process some images and be very pleased with the improvements achieved. More lessons via our camera club again conducted remotely and I feel able to edit my images. Despite her undoubted skill, she doesn’t forget where she came from and she too learnt once. Excellent value, great fun and a brilliant teacher.
It’s a 10 from me!

Nancy has a very welcoming and open approach. She has walked me through some really useful editing skills that made much more sense when explained by her, both why and how to use a technique. Nancy has also challenged me to think about how I would edit a picture and then provided feedback and guidance to improve. Overall I really value the time Nancy has spent helping me improve my photography.

Photoshop and Lightroom sessions with Nancy.
During the lockdown, I have attended some online learning with Nancy doing PS and LR sessions. For me, the thought of using LR and PS really does make me very nervous and scared of editing and causes me a lot of anxiety when I think about trying to edit any images. So I attended a few Zoom lessons with Nancy and she gave me an amazing amount of learning to think about. We looked at different genres of photography to edit and with Nancy's knowledge, it soon became clear that the basics are usually the same when you start to edit.
Both Photoshop and Lightroom are such a challenge for me and Nancy made the lessons fun to learn and her humour calms your nerves too and the anxiousness for me become calmer. What I also discovered is that PS camera Raw is exactly the same as LR develop module too. I come across this as I was searching for some things I had written down to jog my memory again.
If anyone is considering learning these packages then I would highly recommend Nancy. And furthermore, if you’re scared and anxious speak to Nancy and she will quickly put you at ease now. Don’t delay in organising your images too so you have a structure of how to set them out as this is something I very quickly picked up on and mine have been done that way now.
Nancy is an amazing teacher and kind and friendly that you will definitely gel with and learn very quickly and at your own pace if need be.

‘Nancy is an excellent teacher. She is down to earth and her lessons are full of humour and fun, as well as being ultra-professional. Nancy’s directions are easy to follow and she has given me the confidence to make the big step into using PS and Lightroom. I can’t recommend Nancy highly enough’
