I adopt a principle-based training methodology as I do not feel that technique-based training is the best learning method. Techniques generally promote more of a copying than a learning opportunity, plus it is a very genetic approach, rather than a person-centred one. Principle-based learning encourages competence and confidence building, understanding and problem-solving skills.
I don't have a cut-off age and would discuss each young applicant with a parent/guardian to establish the appropriateness to attend. On occasion I run training options specific to younger ages groups.
Photography Walks are informal training options, carried out at different locations and offering different subjects. They tend to be around 2 hours in duration, with different options available, offering alternate levels of accessibility.
At present most of these are organised by specific groups (i.e. schools, camera clubs, care support groups, etc.) and with a specific topic in mind. The location is normally arranged by the organiser. They are generally closed groups, although some organisers are happy to invite the public to attend.
The majority of courses and workshop tend to be in the Moray, Grampian and Highland region of Scotland. However, should there be sufficient interest in any area, I am happy to explore the options.
