Teaching the “art of photography” has been a great passion of mine for several years.
“Having led many one-to-one and group photography expeditions and workshops, I get so much pleasure seeing our guest photographers expand their knowledge and skill levels whilst improving their images considerably”.
A hobby that started over twenty years ago became a passion. For me, photography became a tool for capturing a moment in time and then having the ability to show it to the world, in image form.
As an avid enthusiast of the great outdoors; photographing landscapes, seascapes, wildlife and natural world images are my favoured genres.
During my work as a photography expedition and workshop leader, I come into contact with many photo enthusiasts of all differing levels of knowledge and expertise.
As such, I have become aware of the subjects that most photo enthusiasts want to address during our time together. Some topics relate to photography tuition “in the field” and some to advise on post production “tips and techniques”.
Composition, bracketing, long exposure, filters, using different lenses; the list is endless. It is my intention to address many of these areas of photography over the coming months through video tutorials.
“Masterclass Photography 2022” will direct my photography and video tuition towards these issues, in a simplified way.
“Just like many others, I love to travel and capture images across this beautiful world in which we live. Whilst starting out solely as a photographer, I have since incorporated video production and aerial imagery into my digital repertoire” – Mark Brion
Five years ago, I decided to start sharing my knowledge and skills in photography with others. So, I researched, organised and started to take like-minded enthusiasts on photography expeditions and workshops.
Initially, these were held in beautiful locations solely in the UK. However, due to my love of travelling, I also started to take the workshops further afield overseas.
I strongly believe the eye of the photographer behind the lens is most important, but better tools do help to improve your image in so many different ways.
Post production is also an important part of modern digital photography. Having 15 years’ experience using Photoshop, Lightroom and Camera Raw, I teach photographers tips and techniques in post production.
“I love playing with light and long exposures. Capturing landscapes, seascapes, and photographing beautiful sunrise and sunset colours. For me that is when nature is at its best and it gives me a real BUZZ every time” – Mark Brion
