Photography Workshop North West Matthew Rycraft

Beginner Photography Workshops to Professional

Using your camera along side other photographers is a great way to get extra support and gain confidence. Exchanging ideas, problems and helping each other is a massive milestone in furthering your skills as a photographer.  I also encourage picking my brains throughout the day on anything you’re having problems with.

You just need a basic knowledge of your camera to get the most out of my the workshops. My photography workshops are held across the North West in Merseyside, Southport & Liverpool.


In 2019 I was ranked TOP 50 Photographers in UK.  I was chosen as a Phottix UK Ambassador due to the work produced with off camera flash. Then PermaJet in 2019 appointed me as a wedding photographer Ambassador for the printer paper.  After winning 3 SWPP print awards with their amazing paper. I have won wedding of the year 3 times & been featured in more magazines than I can remember.  And had a couple international awards. Feel free to view my portfolio.

During my North West Photography workshops I cover my foundations for lighting the model and finding the best light. I’ll then detail my techniques for posing, directing the model to get the very best images. It’s important to tell your story through the image, capturing emotion and movement is what makes them feel genuine and spectacular.  I’ll help you understand in detail how to make your images stand out and explain composition.

You’ll need your camera and some comfy shoes. I will supply your lighting equipment & triggers supported by Phottix Professional Photo Accessories.
