MY NEXT COURSE WILL RUN LATER THIS YEAR
Whether you’ve shot hundreds of weddings or you’re just starting out I’d love you to join me for a two day course late 2022 / early 2023 in Canterbury looking at documentary wedding photography. The price is £350 and to register your interest email me here. We’ll be covering…
- Bride and Groom Prep- how to be invisible
- The Ceremony- what to look out for
- The Reception- how to capture moments

- Speeches- where to be
- The Dancefloor- can you get away without flash?

The past two days have been packed with such valuable knowledge, helpful insights and encouraging advice. I have particularly loved the feel of the course being quite an open discussion space for everyone, no matter what level we’re at. No question was a silly question – I really appreciate and admire your transparency in every detail from camera settings to struggles/feelings when shooting – I’m so grateful for this! You’re a natural leader/encourager! May Mabhula (Jan 2022 Course)
After photographing a few weddings, I wanted to improve my wedding photography and I’m so glad I booked onto Olly’s Documentary Wedding Photography Course. Olly is such a warm and friendly person and his enthusiasm for authentic documentary wedding photography was contagious. He shared loads of great tips and the practical exercises were helpful too. The course has really challenged me to move away from classic posing and to focus on capturing emotions and storytelling. I’d thoroughly recommend Olly’s courses, he is a great communicator, very encouraging and super knowledgable Louisa Bedford (May 2019 Course)
I can’t recommend this course enough. Whether you are a newcomer to wedding photography or shot many weddings this course will give you a deeper insight into documentary wedding photography. Olly’s knowledge and enthusiasm will ensure you take away so many things that you can instantly apply to your photography venture. This course has made me a better photographer already as well as helped me meet some great people. It really is a fantastic investment. Pete Phelan (May 2019 Course)
Over the last year I’ve mentored 4 amazing Photographers. From January 2022 I’m looking to take on 2 more photographers to mentor for a year.
- We’d meet/ Skype regularly throughout the year
- I would help with your website, brand and business
- There would be ongoing critique of your work
- You would come to a wedding of mine and see how I shoot and handle the day (this is offered on some of my packages)
- I would come to a wedding of yours and work alongside you giving you feedback after the day (this is offered on some of my packages)
If you’re interested in this investment starts at £1,000. Drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work out a package to suit you. Here’s a few testimonies.
Having Olly as our mentor over the past 12 months has been amazing! He has really helped us in developing our photography skills and confidence on shoots. Having feedback from Olly on the weddings we’ve shot has been invaluable and we feel it has helped us massively in creating our style, gaining confidence and taking better images. Not only is Olly such fun, he also puts you at ease and is patient with any questions (of which we’ve asked a lot!) We would highly recommend him as a mentor if you’re looking to improve your photography skills or business. Ollie & Nix Photography
Olly took me on and mentored me when I first started my business. Looking back six years down the line I’m so thankful that I got the opportunity to have him as a Mentor. I learnt so much from Olly about how to shoot beautiful documentary photography and create images that my clients will love. I was able to go to weddings with Olly and see his approach with his couples and how he made them feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera which allowed him to get natural, beautiful images throughout the day. This has helped me so much with my approach to shooting weddings and the relationships I build with my couples. If you’ve got the opportunity to have him as mentor, then just got for it! I would highly recommend it! James Richard
Olly is a very kind and encouraging Mentor and gave me encouragement that kept me going when I was seriously doubting myself. He teaches in a hands on style which makes a lot of sense for me as a practical learner. He’s also approachable so if you’re in doubt about something or need to ask a question you won’t feel stupid asking it. Best of all he’s just a good friend and you can banter with! Jen Holland
NEXT DATE – THURSDAY 10TH MARCH 2022
Like many people did you get a DSLR or mirrorless camera as a present but now you’re not sure how to use it? Are you wanting to get away from just using the automatic settings on your camera? Not sure of what ISO really does or how to get a stunning depth of field to your photos? Do you want to know about how to get the best lighting for your pictures or how to compose a shot so it doesn’t look like everyone else’s pictures?
For £200 you’ll get a day with Olly looking at the basics of DSLR photography:
– What the settings mean on your camera
– How to compose a shot
– How to light your subject
– Editing tips
Classes are held in Canterbury on weekdays during the months of January, February, November and December. If you’d like to book or find out more then please email email@example.com or call 07762810271
It was a fun and energetic day filled with great tuition and I now know how to use my camera! Olly keeps your attention with practicals in between each section. I highly recommend this relaxed, friendly photographer. Laura
I was given this day as a gift from my Husband and Olly has passed on his passion, experience and energy and given me the confidence to go out and take my camera off auto!!! Heather
