Both photography and photoshop tuition sessions are available at Parklands Photographic Studio & Location.

Sessions are conducted by the studio's owner Joel Hicks, who works as a professional actor, model and photographer, and each session is tailored to the specific needs of the client and their experience level.

Photography tuition sessions are available for both indoor (studio) and outdoor (location) settings, and can cover all aspects of model photography from technical aspects such as camera settings and studio lighting, to non-technical aspects such as model direction and photoshoot planning.

During a photography tuition session, Joel will typically act as both the tutor and model. However, a different male or female model can be arranged if this preferred (this will obviously incur an additional cost).

For a single, 'one-off' photography tuition session the cost is £60ph and a minimum 2 hour booking is required.


For a single, 'one-off' photography tuition session the cost is £60ph and a minimum 2 hour booking is required.

For first time visitors to Parklands Photographic Studio & Location who may be unfamiliar with studio lighting, the 'one-off' session is strongly recommended.


For individuals who are looking for regular tuition, Parklands Photographic Studio & Location offers a monthly tuition program. These 2 hour sessions cost £50ph (saving £20 compared to the 'off-one' session) and must run for a minimum of six months (6 x 2 hours sessions).

Each month, photographers who have signed up to the monthly tuition program have the option to purchase five hours of studio time for just £100 (saving £25) in order practice and implement what they have learned. This is purely optional.

If this studio time option is taken up, the total cost would therefore be £200 per month (a total saving of £45).


Whilst the basic foundations of model photography can be learned with relative ease and speed, post-processing is another matter and can easily overwhelm a photographer who is unfamiliar with photoshop, regardless of their experience behind the lens.

As such, photoshop tuition sessions at Parklands Photographic Location & Studio are devised to provide a photographer with the protocols and knowledge to implement post-production techniques in a clear, simple and easy-to-understand manner that will take your photos to the next level.

A minimum 2 hour booking for photoshop tuition is required, and costs £50ph. Clients are encouraged to bring their laptop or computer with them to the session, if possible.
