Six 2.5hour workshops on Telling Stories with Photography, Robert Golden


These are workshops for students, advanced amateurs and professionals, given by an often-exhibited photojournalist, working with Penguin Books for whom he photographed and co-authored a 10 volume photo-documentary series. He freelanced for many other book publishers, magazines as THE RADIO TIMES and newspapers as the New York Times, and was one of three photographers to document the America Smithsonian Air and Space and History Museums. He became one of the most well known tabletop (food) photographers in Europe. 

To appreciate the material, participants should have a basic understanding about how a camera works and a working knowledge of Photoshop (or the like).  

A maximum of 9 people plus RG on ZOOM. The course will begin in mid-September.

The fee is £300 normal or £250 early bird. 


“Through his generous sharing of knowledge and experience during the six lockdown workshops, Robert helped me clarify my own voice. Exploring the work of those who’ve gone before and studying the importance of every detail, he encouraged a confidence in our own unique vision. I celebrate the creative freedom to develop my own photographic stories.” J.U.

“I came out of the group enriched, bursting to share some of the content with my partner (a painter) and looking forward to our next group. It’s a treat to be with this group of people who are all immersed in thinking seriously about photography and willing to explore and share, engage and learn together.  You’re giving us lots to think about, a great opportunity”. N.B.
