About Us and our Photography
There are loads of photography courses out there, and some are even taught by famous photographers – why choose us?
Being good at something doesn’t make you a good teacher and many good photographers simply cannot teach. Many photographers (and we know a lot) are not good communicators. In addition, unlike certain other courses we won’t take advantage of you to sell you camera equipment you might not need, although we might have some suggestions of equipment you might want to think about to get the effect you’re looking for.
We are full-time experienced professional photographers and photography teachers who are passionate about our work. We have a reputation within the world of teaching as being inspirational, lively and humourous teachers. Our courses have been enjoyed by hundreds of people over the years. We’ve even ended up in the Daily Mail. When we’re not actually teaching, we’re writing, doing on-line mentoring, or writing curriculum. Rachel also illustrates children’s books as Rachel Annie Bridgen.
We are particularly keen to inspire absolute beginners, and have an abiding belief that everyone has creativity within them…even the unconvinced will leave amazed at what they have achieved in a few short hours!
Our photographic work spans a huge spectrum, including weddings nationally, family shoots, commercial photography, celebrities, corporate events, property photography. For years we were photography tutors at Worcester College of Technology and taught Foundation Year, GCSE and ‘A’ photography at schools including the famous Malvern College. We’ve taught the Somerset Probation Service and even the British Army. We also photograph regularly for Worcestershire Life Magazine and have had photographs published in the Daily Telegraph. An exhibition of our photographs is currently touring nationally showing the the wonderful work of conductive therapists at Megan Baker House near Leominster.
