Since 2008 Kevin has been shooting a style of wedding photography widely known as “wedding photojournalism” or “documentary wedding photography”.  This Wedding Photojournalism Workshop will focus on shooting style, observation skills, gear and post processing.

This wedding photography workshop will concentrate on inspiration and stylistic choices, gear, shooting, the business side, and inspiration.

The workshops I run are designed to give you the most information possible.

No hiding information and that’s the reason most of my workshops are aimed at a very small amount of delegates.  That way you will get all the advantages of working closely with me.

I became one of the first Fujifilm official X-Photographers in the UK and have been shooting exclusively with the X-Series of cameras for three years.  Although, of course, this workshop is open to photographers who shoot with any system.


This workshop is aimed at wedding photographers who want to explore the Wedding Photojournalism style of shooting.  It’s also beneficial for photographers who want to hone their skills for the part of their day that they shoot candidly at the wedding.

All attendees on the Wedding Photojournalism Workshop will also be added to a special Facebook Group dedicated to helping you build a successful wedding photojournalism business.

    Attending this workshop with Kevin was like turning on a lightbulb in my head.

    It’s about getting your head around a mindset, not so much about technical aspects, but learning about human behaviour, what to look for, how to spot it. I found it gave me a much better understanding of anticipiating the moment and making my own luck.

    This is the second training session I have done with Kevin and both have been so worth it. I came away inspired and immediately put into practice what I had learnt at the next wedding I did a week later. All of a sudden found myself telling a much better story with my wedding photography.

    I spent a whole day with Kevin on a one-to-0ne Wedding PJ workshop and it was amazing. So many workshops over promise yet under deliver. Kevin’s workshops are always the other way around. Well worth the investment.

    Its fair to say I’m not a pure documentary photographer and the purpose of me attending the workshop wasn’t to become a documentary wedding photographer and stop doing portraits and groups, but to seriously strengthen the documentary work I (and most other wedding photographers) do alongside my core work.

    The course was highly enlightening to say the least and some of the things I learned really opened my eyes and gave food for thought. I’m not going to reveal much in this review but knowing some of my actions could have actually been changing the couples emotions at sensitive moments was something that really hit home and as a result I’ve already started making some changes and the results are very positive.

    The answers to improving my PJ work wasn’t what I expected them to be, but having listened, taken note and then put into practice I’m starting to really put the puzzle together and strengthen the story telling aspect of my work. As always I arrived armed with questions like ‘what if its a boring wedding” and “what if they look at you every time you try to take a candid” and Kevin soon explain with examples what to look for and how to approach the day sensitively.

    I’ve attended a few of Kevin’s courses over the years, as well as other workshops and courses led by some of the leading names in the industry , and I honestly find Kevin’s are the best in terms of both content and value for money… They are always highly engaging, lighthearted, super informative and you can ask him anything. I find the 121 or small group sessions to be exceptionally good as you can steer the workshop towards your needs with Kevin answering anything you throw at him.

    I’d been shooting weddings for around 6 years using solely Nikon cameras and lenses. I swapped my cameras over for Fuji’s in Feb 2014. This helped me in my mission to photograph weddings in a more natural way. The next 6 months I worked hard on developing a documentary style. My portfolio grew and I could see my work slowly improving.

    I booked onto a workshop with Kevin to help point me in the right direction. My main aim from the workshop was to ask Kevin’s advice on pricing strategies and how to take my business to the next level. The opportunity to show Kevin my portfolio and have it reviewed was worth the investment alone. I was fed up of showing friends and family my work and hearing “that’s nice” or “wow, lovely picture.” I needed some quality feedback and Kevin took some time in the afternoon to do just that. He told me what he liked and what he disliked but most importantly how I could have taken that picture slightly better.

    The business side of the day was what attracted me in the first place but learning some techniques and tips about shooting on the day was an added bonus. Overall a great day and very much worth the investment. I left Kevin’s studio with pages of notes scribbled in my notebook and lots of goals to work towards. Since attending the workshop I’ve streamlined my website, removed things that didn’t need to be there, improved my SEO and changed my price point and grown my wedding photography business for the better.

    Fuji shooter or non fuji shooter, I really couldn’t recommend the wedding photojournalism workshop enough.

    This PJ workshop was the first and so far, only course I have attended, as I embark on a career change in the coming months. Many years ago, I had been a full-time photographer, hence, there was a pressing need to gain new skills and get myself up to date. I was drawn to Kevin’s workshop because after extensive research, I felt he was ‘top of the tree’ in the documentary style I wished to adopt.

    To say I was amazed by the skills and knowledge passed on by Kevin would not do justice to the value of the day. Kevin’s structured workshop and pleasant way of imparting his experiences gave me the tools to set myself up for success. I can think of no better way in which to have the opportunity to learn from such an esteemed expert – you need look no further than Kevin.

    I attended one of Kevin’s Wedding Photojournalist courses last year. The nice thing about a course with Kevin is that it doesn’t feel like training, it feels like having a chat with a mate, and learning stuff from him. I already am a professional documentary wedding photographer, but wanted to learn more from Kevin as I see him as a true leader in the field. The course was relaxed, friendly and appropriate. Kevin was happy to tailor the session based on the experience level of his trainees, rather than give a 1 size fits all approach. And, as a fellow Fujifilm X photographer, I loved talking all things Fuji with him! Highly recommended.

    Whilst I’m not a pure documentary wedding photographer, I’ve been on a mission to improve my skills and strengthen my documentary work and approach so decided to book this workshop with Kevin. Kevin is very down to earth and has a very open, honest and informative approach to his workshops – it was enlightening and very inspiring learning how Kevin shoots, what he focusses on, how he approaches a wedding day, his methodology, his mindset. Kevin was very generous with his knowledge and advice, giving us lots of information and answering any specific questions each of us had. It was a full-on day with loads of info jam packed into the day, Kevin is a well respected, very experienced documentary photographer who has perfected his craft and is ideally placed to teach this stuff. He has an easy and humorous way about him which makes the workshops highly engaging and really informative. I’ve done a few workshops with other wedding photographers at the top of their game, but this is the one to do. Super informative, full of amazing content and worth every penny!!

    Yesterday I spend the whole day with Kevin and two fellow eager learners of candid photography. The workshop was brilliant and 100% worth the attendance. Kevin is a highly skilled professional and delivers his knowledge in a very relaxed and accessible manner. Whatever aspects of his style and craft you want to learn, he is happy to aim the day in that direction. It was a pleasure to meet him and the other guys attending and also to grab a cheeky pint after the teaching.

    I’m now full time as a Professional Photographer and wanted further knowledge and in site into documentary weddings. The day ran very smoothly and all three of us fired off questions as they cropped up and I don’t believe any of us left without the answers. Highly recommend a well delivered day in a very relaxed atmosphere and a great lunch.

    Loved it! Kevin’s presentation was honest and inspiring, and totally spoke to my candid heart! He was very patient and down to earth – sharing his passion and philosophy, and never talking down to us. It was like hanging out with a fellow colleague. The facilities were also great, and so chuffed that afterwards he emailed us a PDF of his presentation – that beats my scribbled notes any day! I would highly recommend this workshop to any aspiring documentary shooter/wedding creative. Cheers dude!

    Whether you want to go the whole hog by transforming yourself into a wedding photojournalist or remain a hybrid with dramatically improved candid work, this workshop equips you to do exactly that. Kevin teaches you how to give yourself the best possible opportunity of discreetly capturing the whole gamut of emotions and drama that unfold during a wedding day. Whilst he covers the technical aspects of shooting this way, you quickly learn the key to creating good photojournalism pictures and what separates the men from the boys. Good solid business advice forms part of the workshop, with particular expertise in SEO and social media. The bonus is seeing Kevin’s work. The way he captures the warmth, love, joy and comedy is tangible; you can hear and feel his pictures like you were there. An excellent day, well worth the ££. One word of warning though; you’ll never want to shoot a ring on a rose petal again.

    As a recently (2yrs) turned pro (documentary) wedding photographer , I found this course hugely helpful! As a hugely skilled professional photographer (not only weddings) Kevin’s work is amazing, and his insights into his own work is enough to inspire anyone wanting to also become a documentary photographer, or to grow and enhance their own skills. Kevin was also happy to answer any questions about how he takes/see’s his shots, and also about the running of a wedding photography business.
    The course is a must for any part-time or full-time photographer.

    Kevin’s workshop was highly inspirational and helpful to me. Even though I’ve been shooting weddings for about 10 years, I still like to attend a workshop now and then, just to keep me on my toes and re-evaluate my approach. I find I’m never done learning and there’s always new ideas, tips and tricks to be found, especially from a great teacher like Kevin as well as fellow workshop attendees. Kevin’s way of communicating is easy to follow, full of humor and of course tons of wonderful nuggets of knowledge. I’m well aware that being good at something and beeing good at teaching the same thing require quite different skill sets: Kevin’s wonderful in both regards. I can wholeheartedly recommend his workshops, to both amateurs and seasoned pros! I don’t particularly like writing reviews, so this is saying something 🙂
