Photography Workshops

You don’t just need to be a wedding photographer to join me on my wedding photography workshops. I offer photography training for any type and style of photography.  My classes are very universal and cater for most.  You just need a basic knowledge of your camera to get the most out of my the workshops. Training courses are held in the Merseyside, primarily in Southport & Liverpool.


Workshops not just for Wedding Photographers

You will find using your camera along side other photographers, is a great way to get 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.

Why Train with Matt

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.

You’ll need your camera and some comfy shoes. I will supply your lighting equipment & triggers supported by Phottix Professional Photo Accessories.  Feel free to email for more information about our next workshops & dates:
