Education, Professional Development and Speaking

Supporting the Creative Sector

During my 20+ years working as a photographer in the visual arts, it became clear that creatives need professional development to support their practice in an increasingly digital and marketing heavy environment. As a skilled communicator and educator, I have honed my offerings to meet the changing needs of creative industries including artists, designers, freelancers and small businesses. From a 45 minute online talk to a hands-on half day workshop for existing teams and organisations, I bring passion to develop the creative sector with capacity building and practical skills.

Workshop Themes

I can cover content as an illustrated lecture, talk, workshop on location or online.
