Give the Gift of Photographic Knowledge!

Photo School vouchers are available in any denomination you desire and can be used as credit against all my services, from walks to personal tuition.

Your personalised voucher is emailed as a PDF for you to print out along with instructions on how to use it.

Credit is recorded with me and can be spread over various events. There’s no expiry date and if I ever stop Photo School, unused vouchers will be refunded.

Purchase a voucher

To buy your voucher, click on the big ol’ Buy Now button.

You’ll be taken to a secure payment page where you can enter the value you require.

This will be followed by a form to enter the recipient’s name.

If you have any questions or problems, please get in touch.

If you’re uncertain how much to buy

  • A Beginners Course costs £40.
  • £10-15 will cover a photo walk, depending on the route.
  • £35 covers an hour of personal tuition (excluding optional equipment hire / travel outside Birmingham), which usually runs over to 80 minutes if I’m honest. £100 covers three sessions.

Redeeming your voucher

If you’ve received one of my vouchers, spending it is easy. Have a look around the site and if there’s anything you’d like to do, send me an email. I’ll book you a place and adjust your records.

Your voucher is effectively a credit note, recorded on my big spreadsheet under your name.

If your voucher doesn’t cover the cost of the event I’ll invoice you for the balance (or you can pay on the day if that’s easier).

If the event costs less than your credit I’ll simply deduct it leaving the rest for another event.

If you were given a £30 or £35 voucher back when the Beginners course was shorter and cost £30 or £35, and would like to do the current £40 course, I’ll honour that. Don’t worry about the difference.

If in doubt, get in touch!

One Year Photo Walk Pass

If you're going to attend at least three of my photo walks, this is for you. For £35 you'll be issued with a Discount Code valid for one year, starting on the date of your chosing.

Needless to say, this makes a perfect gift!

It does come with some conditions, which I may update as loopholes reveal themselves:

  • It's only valid for one person. If you want bring a friend they need to pay.
  • It's not transferable. Your friend cannot use it in your place.
  • The pass is valid for walks listed on this page only.

This is a very small operation and I will spot any monkey business which will see me cancel your pass and, more importantly, be very annoyed and upset.

Is it worth it?

Every walk I run is different. The weather, people, buildings, everything changes over time and I always feel I'm seeing the area afresh.

I also get bored and want to mix things up, trying new routes or checking out a new place I've heard about. While I'll often hit the same landmarks the journey between them will always be new.

In 2017, when I had a lot of other committments, I ran 10 walks. As of January 2018 I have 14 walks scheduled through to December. If time permits I hope to develop new walks in Birmingham (city centre and Jewellery Quarter) on top of these.
