“I believe in lifelong learning. I believe in continuous professional development. I don’t believe that process ever stops, to the day we die…”

As one of the leading trainers of professional photographers, Martin Grahame-Dunn has developed his understanding of the art and craft of photography to a Master level. He’s trained and mentored many photographers and has a gift of turning those who’ve come in from other professions from ‘zero to hero’ in a spectacularly short amount of time.

Here he describes his personal journey – a life full of images and image-makers, but nonetheless one of many twists and turns, repeatedly overcoming illness and dramatic changes in his own perspective. With his hands-on approach and zest for life, he maintains all you need to train as a photographer is a passion for imaging and the ability to listen and learn…

He also talks about:

  • How photographers worldwide seem to struggle with just about the same things
  • The excitement of shaping and molding students into something they really didn’t know they could become
  • The gift of knowledge, debts of gratitude and pay-back time
  • How a lot of professional ‘advice’ can lead to disappointment and failure
  • Why everything in photography is about communication, not kit
  • Tips for the new starter or career-change Professional Photographer
  • Money, the commercial world, and how to get a foothold in something you absolutely love doing

Martin’s favourite locations include: London, ‘across the pond’, Little Petra and Dublin.
