WHAT IS it?  

Do you have a big fancy camera, but no idea how to use it? Do you feel guilty you are missing so many opportunities? 
Do you want to capture both the tiny details and big emotions of childhood? I would love to teach you!

My Rock Your Camera workshop is specifically designed for parents with a DSLR or mirrorless camera who want to learn how to get out of auto-mode and start getting fantastic photography.

I wanted to say how much I enjoyed your course, your style and easy manner in covering so much ground. I previously did a term’s course at a local college but I can honestly say I learned ten times more at your workshop. Thank you!

Who's your teacher?

Ellie Cotton is a the owner & photographer of Dandelion Photography, and has been photographing families, children, births and events since 2010. However she actually picked up her first SLR camera when aged just 11 years old - and that's over 30 years ago - gulp! 

Since starting these workshops in Spring 2017, Ellie has taught approximately 40 parents how to take great photos of their own children with tremendous response from those attending - please take a look at the testimonials below.

You can read more about Ellie & her photography style here.

Thank you so much Ellie!! I got such a lot out of the workshop and feel so much more confident using my camera. I really like your style and enjoyed all the content. I just feel so excited to practice!
