The key to a successful training day is in the preparation and Paul will ask you to send over a very short brief detailing what you would like to achieve from your photography training. This can include anything you are struggling with, things you may not tried before but would like to do so or clear, simple aims like mastering the exposure triangle.

If you already have a good grasp of the basic camera settings like aperture, shutter speed and ISO and you’d like to start focusing in more on a specific genre like product photography, wildlife, portraits, street photography, etc. then Paul has amassed a wealth of experience working across a wide variety of genres and is well placed to help you achieve your goals.

Who Is Professional Photographer Paul David Smith?

Paul fell into photography after being bought a camera at a young age. His love of capturing images was in his early days matched by an equal amount of frustration that the camera didn’t always do what he wanted it to do. He quickly realised that by taking control over the camera he got far better and more consistent results and a lifetime of photography grew from there.

He has since been lucky enough to travel the world photographing for many amazing commercial clients and has developed a love of teaching photography and helping people progress on their own personal photography journeys. Paul runs relaxed and informal workshops where you are encouraged to get involved, learn through trial and error and many practical exercises, all whilst having the ability to ask questions as we go along.

  • "Joining Paul on his photography course was an enjoyable day where I learnt lots of new skills which previously I'd struggled to really digest and understand. His ability in breaking everything down so it seems ridiculously easy is unmatched, I've never quite had a learning experience like it. He went through the theory and immediately took me out to do practical exercises to demonstrate just how simple and straight forward it all was in real world situations. If I could sum it up in 2 words it would be common sense, but sometimes you just need someone to show you this and Paul did it exquisitely. I learnt all about aperture, shutter speed and ISO, along with what all the buttons on my camera do. I really enjoyed this training day and can see myself returning to continue my learning going forward."
