Printing is the pinnacle of the photographic process. The final, and many people believe, most satisfying step, but one that is so often missing in our Insta-book world. If you want to start printing at home, have been struggling with printing, or want to prepare images for a commercial printer then this workshop is for you.

During this two-day photography printing workshop in Dorset, you will learn about the full printing process from two experienced and enthusiastic printers, Andy Farrer and Adrian Beasley. You will learn how to set up your computer, colour management, interpret, edit and prepare your images before finally printing them on a range of papers and finishes. Based at Andy’s commercial print studio in Swanage (Fine Art Inkorporated Ltd), you will have access to a brand new large format printer and a range of specialist art papers. We will also take advantage of the location to take some images which we can use during the workshop.

Photography Printing Workshop - Photography Printing in Dorset

Printing is the pinnacle of the photographic process. The final, and many people believe, most satisfying step, but one that is so often missing in our Insta-book world. If you want to start printing at home, have been struggling with printing, or want to prepare images for a commercial printer then this workshop is for you.

During this two-day photography printing workshop in Dorset, you will learn about the full printing process from two experienced and enthusiastic printers, Andy Farrer and Adrian Beasley. You will learn how to set up your computer, colour management, interpret, edit and prepare your images before finally printing them on a range of papers and finishes. Based at Andy’s commercial print studio in Swanage (Fine Art Inkorporated Ltd), you will have access to a brand new large format printer and a range of specialist art papers. We will also take advantage of the location to take some images which we can use during the workshop.

Who Should Attend and what to bring:

This workshop is ideal for anyone who wants to start printing at home, have been struggling with printing or want to prepare images for a commercial printer. You should have some prior experience with editing tools such as Lightroom or Photoshop.

You will need to bring: 

Your computer (PC or Mac – sorry no iPad’s!)

You will need Lightroom and/or Photoshop

Some images to work with but we also plan to do dawn and dusk photo shoots. Don’t forget your camera gear!

Andy Farrer won Landscape Photographer of the Year in 2015 and has been a photographer for most of his career. For Andy, the capture of his images is the start of a journey where the processing is as important and enjoyable as the capture itself. Andy has always been very connected to the print aspect of photography, since seeing his first black & white print emerge in the developer in a camera club darkroom. Currently enjoying a 100% digital workflow, from capture to print, he still finds it as rewarding and even more consistent than his wet darkroom days. Andy now has a professional print studio near his home, which will be our base for this workshop.

Adrian Beasley has taught C&G Photography, Black & White developing & printing, Photoshop and Lightroom workshops for over 15 years and has been involved with computers since school. He spent his early years working and teaching darkroom techniques, progressing to his own large format digital printing system at the turn of the century! He has a very engaging and relaxed teaching style. Adrian is an ACE (Adobe Certified Expert).

The group will meet at 9.30 at the Fine Art Inkorporated Print facility in Swanage. You will need to arrange your own accommodation as it is not included in the workshop. The workshop will conclude around 5pm on 10th July.

A highly informative and enjoyable 2 day workshop with plenty of time for both theory and practice with excellent and patient instruction and advice from Adrian and Andy. I now feel ready to take my next step into printing.

Mr Paul Henniker - 24th Jul, 2021

The workshop was very well structured, it catered for all levels of printing experience. Adrian and Andy asked each student for their level of printing success and any areas that we had problems with. The technical details for printing were explained in an easy paced delivery as we were at different stages of experience. The images we were asked to bring along were then analysed by both Adrian and Andy and with the aid of the info Adrian gave us previously we were able to select, adjust and set the images ready for printing onsite. A range of printing papers were shown to us as this also enables the image to be seen at it's best. We all went home with 3 or 4 prints of our work and a book explaining the printing process. Lunches provided and a group evening photoshoot for those traveling the day before. Also a social meal in the evening. All in, a very friendly, relaxed two day workshop.

Ms Shay Parsons - 22nd Jul, 2021

Andy and Adrian know their stuff inside out and are also both really encouraging and helpful. I came away with a set of prints and the knowledge to make my own. Highly recommended.

Mr David Eagle - 22nd Jul, 2021
