Exciting news we’re teaming up with local photographer Vanessa Miles to host a two part photography workshop. These will be online this November with the aim to have a great time looking at photos, talking about them, and taking them.
Who’s it for:
You don’t need to have any previous knowledge or experience of photography, just a love of photography. The fun and informal workshops are for people with a disability who live in Devon, Plymouth and Torbay.
- Get together in a small group online for two sessions with a task to do in between.
- We will be discussing what makes a good picture and exploring a few rules of good composition and when it’s best to break these. We’ll also be learning how to ‘see’ good natural lighting for a photograph and how best to use it.
- After the first session, you’ll be tasked to try out what you’ve learned and asked to upload your photos by wetransfer.com or email them to Vanessa before the second session.
- During the second session, Vanessa will share your photos with the group. Much of the fun is to see how others have interpreted the ‘brief’ and to hear their experiences. We welcome positive feedback and encouragement whatever the level of photography.
- First session 11th November 2021 10-11.30 am
- Second session 18th November 2021 10-11.30 am
All that is required is an interest in photography and any camera or phone. Participants need to commit to both dates and times.
The session will be hosted by Vanessa Miles, a Devon based professional photographer, and director of Well Image.

‘This course has helped me to overcome my fears of going out through my front door exacerbated by Covid 19 virus. I have loved everything about this experience. I have spent several years leaving my home very rarely due to my disabilities. Because of that I thought that I could never create something stunning from my doorstep. I have not only found that beauty is everywhere, even in my carpark but I have started to venture out into the world once again. I have found a new joy in my life and I am proud of the pictures I have taken. I now have a creative outlet that I can continue, especially as I have had to stop other creative pursuits due to poor health. I now look around me and notice what there is to be positive about in the big wide world, even if I can’t go too far into it! ” (previous workshop attendee – Linda)
