Whether you are new to printing or want to refine your techniques, it's so much more fun and instructive to learn in a supportive workshop environment. Compared to this, printing at home alone can seem quite daunting and appear more like a problem solving exercise, rather than a wonderfully satisfying culmination of the creative process.

Each day we'll have printing demonstrations and discussions, covering practical subjects such as workflow, soft-proofing, choosing the right paper and ironing out printer settings. We will also explore creative techniques, like interpreting the image, balancing the print and developing a personal aesthetic. And, rather than trying to judge on-screen how the printed image should look, we'll encourage you to make a variety of proof prints that we can compare, assessing the results together, before making the final print. We are sure to learn much from each other.

During the week, you'll have plenty of time to put into practice what you've learnt, controlling your own printing, connected to Epson or Canon printers via the studio network. And, as with all our workshops, you'll get plenty of time-off on location to make new images, with the printed result (and your new-found printing skills) very much in mind.

We will work with you to identify your aims for the week and to put a structure in place for you. Our aim is also to help you develop your creative printing and print visualisation skills, and – crucially – your confidence, so that printing becomes second nature and a vital, exciting part of your photography.
