Another outstanding day of photography arranged by James Davies at Rossington Hall. James not only shows and explains the technical side of his style of photography but goes beyond the camera which we sometimes forget about. His ” this is how I do it” approach is delivered in an energetic and fun atmosphere from the minute you arrive until you leave for home leaving you inspired and motivated. If you are serious about photography and are looking to develop your skills then visit and check out his training pages, you won’t be disappointed.

Great Sunday evening James. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks Rob for assisting & thanks Caitlin for putting up with us. Would definitely recommend this event if it is done again. Just need to sort out my images now.

A fantastic day of training at Hodsock Priory with James and Doug. The models were very friendly and professional, and James was on hand to direct everyone and to show them how he approaches his portraits during a wedding day with natural light and various flash techniques. I definitely recommend this workshop to anyone wanting to take their skill set to the next level.

Hi James, Thanks for an excellent interesting course and day out last Friday. Good to meet proper people of a similar interest and be able to communicate freely. Your personal approach to the photography business is what prompted me to attend and your laid back non-conventional way of working really fits in with my personal lifestyle. My first wedding shoot on Saturday went really well, minimum amount of scrapped images – Hope to meet you again in the not so far future. Alan

Hi James A huge thank you for a wonderful day at Rossington Hall the other week. The day was just great from start to finish. The models were really accommodating and the venue was just perfect. Ange and I are very excited about our new business together.

Hi James, Just a big thankyou for last Friday at Rossington Hall I really enjoyed it and learnt a lot. I was a little apprehensive about going thinking I may be overwhelmed by the other photographers there but this was not the case I felt quite at ease and took a lot in, whether it will stay there we shall have to see! All the best and thanks again
