workshops, mentoring & Guest speaking
for photographers & business owners
Before I was a full time photographer, I lectured at university on creative degree courses, including photography and I have a teaching qualification in adult education. And before that, I worked in business development and sales for several years too. Marry this up with my passion for photography and business and wanting to share this love with people, has led me to offer bespoke mentoring - available for all levels of photographers and business owners, whether you’re beginning your journey or want to push your creativity now you’ve nailed the basics.
I intend for this to be a space for learning and where everyone can ask the questions, even the ones you might label as silly ones, as let’s face it, they’re usually the best ones to ask. I’m incredibly passionate about helping people break down the walls that prevent them from moving forward in their photography journey and offer 1-2-1 bespoke session and group workshops.
I'm here to share what I've learned throughout the years.
Ways I can support you
I love to support both hobby and pro photographers develop their skills, business owners and the wider creative community and there are range of ways that I can support you. From 1-2-1s, workshops and guest speaking, I hope we get to meet soon to walk a journey of learning together.
Photo walks in nature
Rebecca developed and expertly delivered a module for 3rd year university photography students, covering a menu of topics required to establish and grow a self-employed career path. The students valued her knowledge and reflections on her industry experience, sharing essential skills with them about photography and running a business. If you want someone to not only teach but most importantly make you and your participants feel passionate and inspired about capturing the world around them and building their path within that - then look no further than Rebecca!
I'm so happy that I reached out to you and booked a session this year - it was such an enjoyable and inspiring experience and I wanted to let you know how much it has helped and encouraged me since.
Your enthusiasm, skill and creativity is, frankly, awesome and your tips and patient expertise that you shared with me during out session have really helped drive me on.
My session with Rebecca was what I hoped it would be and much more. I could literally write pages detailing what I took away from my lesson. I have been self learning photography for the last 5 years, I learnt more in one lesson with Rebecca than I would have if I spent the next 5 years self learning. I wish I had done it sooner. Her knowledge, eye for detail and teaching abilities are next to none. Then there is just Rebecca herself, her energy and love for photography shines through the whole time. I left with confidence in my photography, something I most definitely did not arrive with.

Director of Photography
Sunset sessions are for photographers at any level to come and join me on a photo walk at sunset. Group sizes will be limited to 6, so everyone has time to ask informal questions as we go. I'll share how I see and shoot the scenes unfolding in front of us, supercharge your creativity and you'll come away with a phone or camera full of images. This is great for folk who might want to create some content for their socials, as well as folk who just love photography.

I love sharing my knowledge and experience of photography, aurora chasing, Iceland travels, rewilding our connection to nature, cyclical living, minimalism in life and business, entrepreneurship and self-employment and have a background in lecturing in higher education along with a Cert Ed in Adult education.

Workshops can be run on site with you and within a few hours, your crew can have a whole new tool kit of skills to capture images of the work they are doing day to day. Workshops are delivered in bespoke way around your requirements, so drop me an email to chat more about how we can develop something super for you and your team!
