A selection of John’s work can be found on his website:



Close up and macro photography reveals a visual world that we often fail to notice. The detail of insects, flowers and even everyday objects presents the potential for creating beautiful images showing texture, pattern and colour.

This is an exciting and challenging form of photography, but is accessible with even basic camera equipment.

This workshop will demonstrate the techniques and equipment required to produce high-quality macro and close up images. John will review a range of alternative approaches, and demonstrate how modern software can further improve the quality and scope of macro images.

Topics will include

What is macro photography (and what isn’t)?

The seven techniques for macro and close up photography

Successful subjects for macro and close up work

Use of light – natural, flash, studio

Studio vs. field work

Software options for macro images

Presentation of macro photographs
