Bringing it home

For many years, since I started Iceland Aurora, people have travelled all over the world to learn photography with me.

I am not getting any younger and now I am planning to reverse this trend and travel all over the world to bring my knowledge to you.


I will be starting with camera clubs, meet ups and colleges in my homeland, Britain, but please subscribe or contact me to find out more locations world-wide.


Armed with a Power-point and a bunch of images, I hope to help you to advance your photography.

Main Topics Covered

How Iceland taught me photography
I moved to Iceland when there weren’t thousands of great photographers capturing every corner. I discuss the challenges and rewards of photographing such a raw landscape and how each location offers fantastic opportunities for learning photography.

Photography is Life Long Learning
The beautiful thing about photography is that, the more you learn, the more you realise how much more there is to learn. In this topic I discuss how a healthy attitude to learning is so important to every photographer.

Cognitive psychology and seeing
A lot of the success in photography comes from learning to see, but cognitive psychology teaches us that not every thing is as it seems. Learning how the brain processes vision can help you avoid huge mistakes.

Sub topics

Developing Compositional skills
Discussing which kinds of landscape teach us to compose as well as many techniques for learning to improve composition.

Techniques interfering with learning
I discuss popular techniques and equipment and the powerful ways they diminish your development.

The beauty of Primes
I am not just talking about sharpness in the corners, I have some powerful arguments for making a prime lens an essential part of your kit.

Interactive topics

Lightroom and photoshop – processing demonstration

Valentine’s day

Valentine’s day

This was the worst weather I had seen at this beach. The terrific winds were blasting sand at the backs of our necks as we struggled with our cameras.
