Sunset and people


Not everyone feels comfortable in a group. So we offer private tuition at a time and place that suits you.


From landscapes, to portraits, to food photography, to macro, it was all there, I couldn’t have asked for anything else – a terrific way to learn new skills and techniques. If you’re looking for some personalised, patient, easy going tutor’s then this is the course/retreat for you.”
“Such a great photographer! Top level skills and takes such care with people to make sure the workshops are fun and you are learning all the time. A pleasure to deal with.”
“Sheryn is a great teacher of photography, her passion for what she does shows through in her teaching style and also in the work that she produces. Her mentoring sessions are amazing and she works directly with you to get the results you are after.”
I picked up a DSLR for the first time 5 years ago. A beautiful machine but all I could do was take photos in auto.

My first workshop with Sheryn was an incredible eye opener. She explained things in such an easy to understand way, and the practical sessions really reinforced the learning, so much so, that I walked away feeling confident to go Manual.

I have done a number of workshops with Sheryn and Anita, each time coming away with so much more knowledge to help my photography grow.
