Dear dreamers, intrepid travellers, lovers of life and adventurers and most of all those photographers who want to get out of their comfort zone and shake up their photography.

I have a new set of workshops to help you get where you are going including… wait for it…a travel photography workshop in Naples Italy.

Intrepid – Naples Un-edited

Naples was my first love. It was the place in Italy that first set my photographer’s heart on fire. Naples is raw, emotional, fast, voluptuous, confronting and generous.

I created my first photographic story in Naples that was published in Marie Claire at the beginning of my photography journey. It is the place I have always returned to, to feel alive, to feel wonderment, to be connected to life and people and to witness an Italy like no other.

Naples is authentic and emotional and this is the basis of what I want to teach in this 5-day workshop. My aim is to teach you how to create travel images that are full of life, that ‘tear at your heart strings’, make people stop and wonder, think and feel when they see your photography whether it be happiness, laughter, sadness or shock, any emotion that will make them remember your work long after they have seen it.

Mastering Manual Photography 

Of all the questions I am asked, particularly by women, is to teach an intensive workshop so they can take the jump from automatic settings on a DSLR to using manual settings confidently and quickly.

So ladies, this workshop was created for you. I remember when I learnt photography I had big problems with the numbers, the f-stops, how depth of field worked whilst my male counterparts seemed to soak it all in. I took longer to figure it out and when I did it really stuck. I figured the teacher (male) wasn’t teaching for female brains. LOL! Full details including dates here

One-on-One Mentoring

This full day one-on-one mentoring is all about you and what you need to learn, unravel or solve to take you to the next level.

The day can be designed around your photography needs, whether you are stuck and want to learn specific photographic techniques or create a more effective time-efficient workflow. We can discuss where you are on your photographic journey and where you want to go.

If you have a portrait business and want to give it an overhaul, we can delve into your portfolio or fine-tune who is your dream client to give your business a clearer direction. It can be a drill down and fresh start for photographers who are already in business but have lost their way and need a fresh perspective.

If you are an amateur and want to fast track your photography skills or get some behind the scenes information about a career as a photographer, I am an open book. Full details here

Hi Carla,

As you know, I attended your very first Get Published workshop but what you don’t know is, how inspirational it was. It made me feel so alive, so happy and so enthusiastic that things have not been the same since!

Through it I made life-long friends with like-minded, kindred spirits; I became hungry to learn more and so undertook a number of invaluable writing, publishing and photography courses; I now plan my travel with a much clearer direction, and it’s filled a creative void which was slowly crippling me.

I now no longer feel as though I am swimming against the tide… my head is above water (just) and bit by bit, things are starting to happen.

If I could I would be at ALL your workshops… but time, distance and finances don’t allow it – for now!

So all I can say to anyone contemplating a course with Carla, is “Do it and do it now!”

Embrace it and enjoy it for it will change your life.

Thank you Carla.
