Experience:
"The entire course was very well structured, incredibly informative and - above all - fun. Highly recommended, and we doubt you’ll learn the skills that Simon has to teach anywhere else." Digital Photographer Magazine April 2009.




“Simon has been a positive influence in my photography career. Since the beginning, he has given me options and tools, without affecting my own personal style. In fact, he has encouraged that to grow naturally over time.

The difference with Simons tutoring style is, for example, that he will tell you “why to light something this way”, instead of just providing you with a lighting diagram that works in some situations but won’t in others. This deepens your understanding of the right way to work in all circumstances and provides you with the ability to adapt in tricky situations – which is of significant commercial value. He has taught me some very advanced topics effectively too, including deeper compositional techniques, colour theory and digital processing.

I would recommend allowing Simon to take a look at your portfolio to determine what tools you may be missing. You can then discuss the best way to plug the holes and break out of the limitations that your current knowledge will be holding you too.“
From Phil Drinkwater.

I had a wonderful shoot with Simon during my stay in Gloucester. When I arrived he suggested that we did a shoot with no make-up on, I must admit I did feel quite apprehensive about this but Si made me feel comfortable and I felt that I could brave it. When I saw the results I was so chuffed that I'm now going to show off my natural face more often! Simon is easy going, kind hearted and he knows how to host a good shoot. I would highly recommend him to models who are looking to achieve some great pictures for there portfolios! Thank you very Simon!

Had a very enjoyable 1-2-1 tuition with Si, as he makes the learning fun as well as informative. Very patient and good at explaining things in a easy to follow way, especially giving little tips, which will be remembered at my next shoot. Was well worth the visit, I do recommend! Thanks again Si. Ted.

Had a wonderfully relaxing day with Si who is not only an astonishingly good photographer, a talented make-up artist but is also great fun to be around. We drank countless cups of tea and Simon made me lunch in between adjusting make-up and lighting. He provided me with some stunning images and made one of them his main profile picture :)Can't wait for next time! Thanks Si! Highly recommended.

I spent a day with Simon to help me progress as a photographer, I now understand some of the basics behind what makes a decent image and am able to look at images in a different way, I also picked up lots of helpful tips on how I can improve my own work, the good thing about Simon's tuition is it can be applied to any style of photography, he left me with plenty to think about and I will be interested to see how I progress in the next 6 months.

I fully loved shooting with Si, what a dude. The complete package - nice guy, good photographer, MUA(!), fake Irish accent, sense of humour, good taste in women's clothes, what more could you want. 100% recommended and would definitely work with him again! J x
