Northumberland Photo Training

Thank you so much for an excellent morning of photography. I spent the rest of the week away motivating, observing and composing- really inspirational. Barbara (October 2016)

Creative Photography is my living, my hobby and my passion and I love to teach photography and to inspire others to enjoy their photography too.

I try to tailor every session to the people I’m talking to so sometimes the content can be quite technical and sometimes we leave the technical stuff at home and talk more about composition and the art of photography.   I always talk about finding that elusive WOW factor in your photographs – because surely we all want that reaction when we share our photos!

I don’t often use classrooms – I would rather be outdoors and I will guide you along paths that lead to my favourite locations and as we walk I will share my enthusiasm for photography and for Northumberland’s nature and history. I want you to be as inspired as I am by this beautiful region.

I run the following courses:

PhotoWalks are run weekly, last 1 or 2 hours and are in bigger groups.

PhotoTrails are 2 and 4 hours and are regularly scheduled in small groups to guarantee personal attention.

Personal PhotoTrails can be anywhere, anytime and anything you would like them to be as they are based on 1:1 tuition (or you can bring a friend).

There is more info on my calendar but please use my contact page to get in touch if you’d like to ask me a question or book yourself a course.

About Andy Craig

Andy Craig has been a full time professional photographer and blogger for over 10 years and he earns a living from wedding photography, kids portraits, dog photography and commercial & music photography.  Visit Andy’s business website here:  Andy Craig Photography.

 

Andy’s blog Northumberland360 is a passion project which has been running since he moved to Northumberland in 2008.  It is described as “The Photographic Diary of a Dog-Walker on The Northumberland Coast” and Andy’s aim is to document the landscape as it changes every day.  Various themes recur such as patterns, beach life and the eternal cycles of the sun, nature and tides.  Andy strongly believes in photography as an art form and as a medium for communicating the details and moments that he observes to the more casual passer by.

 

Andy uses simplicity in his composition as he regards this as key to getting the message across to the audience. Andy’s photography owes more to the influence of great street photographers such as Cartier Bresson and Elliot Erwitt than to the great classical landscape photographers but as Northumberland is a rural corner of England and there are few streets, the beach is his street and nature his subject.

 

Andy regularly presents his photography to audiences across Northumberland often accompanied by his own music.  As a semi-professional songwriter and musician he says that the creative processes are very similar whether he is writing a song or composing a photograph.
