Night Group Workshops

My Cornwall workshops have now finished. Check back here soon for upcoming workshops in New Zealand.

  • St Michael's Mount Reflection
  • Cape Cornwall under the Milky Way

A one night photography workshop, in which I will be sharing my creative process on how I produce my night sky images. No matter what your skill level, if you have a capable DSLR or Mirrorless camera you can learn how to capture the night sky!

Groups will be kept small and limited to three students. This way there will be lots of one on one interaction and we can all work together to get the best possible images. 

Each night will act as a standalone lesson, you are free to pick one or more nights and we can build on your existing knowledge.

Most night shots require post processing to look their best. I supply links to useful post production tutorials, along with notes of the session via email the following day. This workshop focuses on the shooting method required to produce night images.


Clear skies are preferred but cannot be guaranteed, the session will go ahead as planned unless there is very heavy rain. All of the required techniques and my creative process can be learnt, even if it's cloudy. The aim of the session is to prepare you for the next perfect night, from planning to shooting.

Group Size

Groups will be kept small, and limited to 3 students.


A relatively recent DSLR or Mirrorless camera is required (2012 or newer), with an interchangeable lens 28mm or wider, with a minimum aperture of f4 or below. 

Contact me via to book! Please include your preferred date and your camera and lens set up.

Each night will be different depending on the weather conditions and the groups skill level, but here are some aspects that I intend to cover:

Optimal camera settings for capturing the night sky

Manually focusing in the dark
