Jane BurkinshawHi. I’m Jane Burkinshaw, a professional photographer with a business called Jane Burkinshaw Natural Light Photography, specialising in portraits and working with businesses to tell your unique story in pictures.

I haven’t always been able to take good pictures. When my daughter, Abigail, was born (she’s now 16!), I wanted to get nice shots of her but most of them were rubbish! I had a point and shoot camera which I only used on AUTO. When Sam came along two years later I decided I really needed to get a better camera and learn how to use it. I got my first SLR camera (the ones with lenses that come off) and booked on an A’ Level course.

Fast forward to the present and I take photographs for a living and wouldn’t charge it for the world! Aside from an A ‘Level gained at evening school, I’m mainly self-taught and am a firm believer that photography doesn’t have to be all jargon and complicated. I am passionate about helping people to improve their photography and confidence in using their cameras.

I run a wide range of other courses and one to one sessions, showing people in simple, jargon free language, how to get off the AUTO settings and take great photographs, whatever your interests or ability. There are courses for beginners, improvers, parents, flower lovers, foodies, teenagers, bloggers and small business owners.

photography courses for teenagersThe majority of courses take place in my natural daylight studio, with full facilities and a wide choice of photographic props and backgrounds. Refreshments and a light lunch are served on most courses.

In my blogs, in addition to picking up some great photography tips and ideas, you’ll get to meet the Burkinshaw family – my husband Nic, Abigail (16), Sam (14) and Ferb and Buster, our very bouncy dogs.
