Meet Your Teacher

We’ll show you how to get better and more creative at photography!

Photography is one of the most accessible forms of creative expression, and many of us have used cameras since we’ve been old enough to hold one in our hands. Venture Photography Workshops is here to show you how you can get the most out of your camera, by taking creative control of it and getting you started on your own image-making adventure!

All our workshops are hands-on and full of activities and shoots. We explain everything in everyday language to make sure you understand all the key ideas and concepts you need to learn. You learn by doing and you’ll get plenty of opportunities to put what you have learned into practice and to refine your skills!
