What does it take to become a best-selling landscape photographer whose work is celebrated all over the world?

You’ve spent years developing your portfolio and now comes the challenge of exhibiting and selling. The purpose of this two-day workshop is to teach aspiring professionals how to curate an exhibition and make the big leap to securing full gallery representation, and achieving their first sales.

This is a rare opportunity to gain an insight into the highly specialised world of art sales from celebrated landscape photographer Charlie Waite and his agent Luke Whitaker, who runs the highly successful Bosham Gallery. As the title suggests this is not just about the making of the photographs, the workshop is focused on the commercial aspects of the business; namely how to run an exhibition and successfully sell your photography.

Charlie and Luke’s detailed programme explores all aspects of selling photographs and what is required of the artist to succeed in the crowded image industry…not just the theories but illustrated with real examples of successful images and photographic artists. Learn how best-selling photographs are printed, editioned, framed, marketed and sold.

The following topics will be covered:

Artist Identity - your unique selling point

Printing - an art within an art

Editioning - open versus limited editions

Framing - current buying trends

Pricing - the great art scam

Selling - what sells and why?

Art Agents - curating exhibitions

The Big Leap - securing your first sales

FD - building an audience of collectors

Bosham, pronounced Bozzum, is one of the most historic villages in England, situated on the south coast of England, within an area of outstanding natural beauty. You will be staying in the sumptuous old English hotel The Millstream for this two day workshop, with both days spent at the Bosham Sailing Club where Charlie and Luke will give their presentations and critique your prints, a delightful setting at Bosham Quay overlooking the harbour. 

Space is built in for 1-2-1 print critiques with Charlie and photographers are invited to bring 8 prints to be critiqued in group sessions. Luke holds private 1-2-1 business critiques with each photographer to help develop their business plan and achieve sales. A commercial goal is not essential, Luke gives equal weight and time to exhibiting as well as selling, so if the ambition is solely to exhibit Luke will help you curate an exhibition from your portfolio and guide you through all of the practical arrangements associated with running an exhibition. 

A highlight of the workshop is a photo walk around Bosham Harbour led by Charlie, where he will discuss his commission to capture the historic waterfront against the beautiful backdrop of the South Downs. Hear Charlie analyse and discuss the landscape, outlining detailed considerations he takes into account when previsualising a potential photograph, the kind of detail and experience that can turn a good photograph into a masterpiece.

Luke is very supportive of emerging photographers and offers all participating photographers the opportunity to take up the Bosham Gallery’s commission to capture sellable photographs of Bosham and Chichester Harbour. Full details of the commission will be given to you on arrival. Listen to how Charlie works during your two days together and perhaps build in some extra creative time during your stay. And who knows, yours could be the next masterpiece we see offered for sale in the front window of the Bosham Gallery.

The tour will start at 6pm on the evening of 17th with dinner and introductions. It will conclude at around 4pm on 19th October.

Just returned from this excellent workshop run by Luke Whitaker and Charlie Waite. Two intensive days of detailed explanation of the requirements behind the business of preparing images for exhibiting and selling in a Gallery environment. This was, without doubt, one of the best , most informative workshops I have attended in many years....packed with detailed information (and some uncomfortable truths!) about the business of selling images, and what is required of the photographer to make progress in the crowded image industry. Luke's detailed programme leaves nothing to chance and explores all the facets of what it takes to penetrate a saturated market.....not just the theories, but illustrated with real examples of successful images and photographic artists......and yes, photographers are artists!.... Charlie contributes many years of experience from the 'front line' of the best in landscape photography, and one of the highlights of the workshop was the walk around Bosham harbour, where he analysed the scene in front of us, detailing the considerations he takes into account when 'pre-visualising' a potential image...the kind of detail that one day may help us make the difference between a 'great' photograph, rather than merely a 'good' photograph. He also critiqued image contributions from all the attendees, and delivered constructive criticism with consideration and charm to beginners and veterans alike. Luke also held 1-2-1 discussions with each attendee, helping to create individual plans for developing their image selling business (if that is what they want to do....) The workshop was held in the conference room of the very comfortable Millstream Hotel in Bosham, a stone's throw from Luke's Bosham Gallery and the picturesque harbour.....add in good food and a convivial atmosphere, what's not to like? I can recommend this workshop without reservation......if you get the chance, do it! BC Foodie - March, 2018

This was a truly excellent workshop! It was highly informative, inspiring and challenging, giving me much food for thought and many concrete pointers for action. The commercial perspective from Luke Whitaker, who runs the highly successful Bosham Gallery, and the artistic perspective from landscape photography master Charlie Waite made for a great balance, while their constructive critique, advice and encouragement were extremely helpful. It was a very intensive 2 days and a great deal of material was covered, but it was never too much to cope with as it was very well structured yet flexible enough to accommodate circumstances "on the ground". Bosham was a beautiful location and the Bosham Gallery is wonderful. The Millstream Hotel was a great venue with lovely food and the company was excellent! I am looking forward to putting into practice what I learned at this workshop and I'm sure it will help advance my photography. Highly recommended. Catherine Illsley - March, 2018

Peter Hendrie was an amazing tutor and a fantastic guy to spend time with. He has a lovely style able to help people like me who are starting out at the same time as taking care of the more experienced members. This was my first photography holiday. It was brilliant and I will be doing more with LIghtandLand. Len - March, 2018

I was privileged to join a Workshop teaching Intentional Camera Movement and Multiple Exposure techniques to create abstract impressionistic photography, based in beautiful Borrowdale, Cumbria. . Our leaders Doug Chinnery and Valda Bailey are at the very top of their fields in creating inspiring art,and were the most engaging teachers. For me it was a perfect mix of technical guidance,and artistic inspiration ( with a good dose of fun to boot). All in beautiful surroundings, based in the cosiest of hotels with ever tasty grub (and a rather nice wine list)and with lovely folk to share it with. I learned so much and had a fabulous time.

I've recently spent a couple of days with Charlie Waite and Luke Whittaker, owner of the Bosham Galley on this excellent workshop. As the title says, it's not just about taking the photographs, the workshop was much more focussed on the commercial aspects of the business, although there was space built in for Critiques by Charlie of images bought, which was very helpful. In addition, Luke took time to discuss on a 121 basis with everyone their aspirations and business plans, which for me was incredibly useful and gave me a clear direction on my next steps. It was great being on a specialised workshop with like minded people. Many thanks for taking the time Luke and Charlie, and for your honesty, openess, professionalism and integrity !!

Groundbreaking! This workshop was full on and came at the right time for me. Either Luke Whitaker and Charlie Waite as course leader would have been awesome on their own but together, the best value workshop you will get! Thought provoking, strategic, practical and enormously enjoyable. This workshop delivered way beyond my expectations. Roseanne Rosanne - March, 2018

Amazing experience! Thank you Luke Whitaker and Charlie Waite for two great days where we explored all aspects from the creative to the commercial element and everything in-between.You have been so generous sharing your vast knowledge and experience with us as a group and on an individual basis, in a beautiful environment. I am inspired to take my work to the next level. Thank you Anne Anne - March, 2018

it was a terrific workshop, not least for the breadth and depth of insight into the business end of presenting and selling photographs. It has given me lots to think about and a very clear direction of what I need to work on in order to get all my ducks in a row and hopefully make it in the world of photography! So a big thank you to both Luke and Charlie for their enthusiasm and help and everyone in the group for a pleasant workshop. Nick Oakley - March, 2018
