Gift ideas from Gemma Griffiths Photography

Looking for some great gift ideas this Christmas? Don't want to waste your hard earned cash on trinkets, socks and scarves? Well, I've got some great ideas for Christmas gifts this year that will warm hearts and bring a smile to everyone's face!

Family Photo Session Gift Vouchers

First up, we've got the ultimate in thoughtfulness  - what could be better than gifting someone the opportunity to capture the love in their family? I have family photo shoot gift vouchers available that include a 1-2 hour location photo shoot in South Wales as well as a 10"x8" print and matching digital image. All for only £149!!!

Christmas gift voucherYou can order gift vouchers directly through my website and I'll pop the voucher in the post to you (or deliver if you're local) in a gorgeous little sparkly gift bag for you to wrap and pop under the tree. There's also the chance to add print credit vouchers to the session as well if you'd like to offer them the chance to buy extra prints or products.

Beginners Photography Training

Next up is a very special offering - the gift of learning. We all know someone who loves photography, they might have a DSLR camera but don't feel very confident with using it. Well, I've got the perfect solution. I've got two Beginners Photography Workshops coming up in 2019 - 19th January and 2nd February. The workshops are for adults who want to learn more about photography and how to use their DSLR. The groups are small and so there's plenty of opportunity for learning both theory and undertaking practical work during the session.

There's also the chance to book one to one sessions too! If you think a private session would be more beneficial, then you can book hourly sessions for bespoke training, tailored to the individuals needs. Book a one hour slot for some quick intensive learning or book two hours to include plenty of practical work.

So, that's Christmas sorted then! If you have any questions about the gift vouchers, please drop me a line and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

Happy shopping!

Beginners Photography Workshop January 2018

Beginners Photography Workshop January 2018

I held my first workshop of the year in Colwinston yesterday. It was great to meet everyone and get stuck into the nuts and bolts of photography.  I had some great feedback from everyone and inspite of the freezing cold weather I think it was a great success! I was so excited that I forgot to take many photos, so there's only a few to share with you!

It was great to see everyone getting to grips with their cameras. I love seeing the results of the practical sessions - there was so much creativity in the composition tasks, lots of great ideas. I love seeing what everyone comes up with and think it's great that we can share that creativity together in a group setting.

The workshop is 4 hours long and includes two practical sessions to practise what has been learnt. We covered the technical aspects of photography, including aperture and shutter speed as well as looking at light and composition.

Here's what the participants had to say about their experience:

"Brilliant course, venue great, looking forward to going away and putting the skills learned into practise." Natalie

"Explained everything well and all the content was relevant." Rhian

"Excellent starter. Good friendly and encouraging atmosphere to give confidence." Janet

"Very enjoyable 4 hours, thank you." Kim

"Substance of the course was spot on." David

If you're interested in joining me for the next Beginners Photography Workshop in March, you can book a place directly through the website. I also offer a workshop for teenagers. It is a little shorter with less emphasis on the technical aspects and focusses more on the creative side of photography. The February workshop is sold out but there are still places available on the March workshop. You can book a place on the Young Photographers Workshop directly through my website.
