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

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 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.

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 in the evening of 7 July at the hotel, and the printing workshop will commence at 9.30am at the Fine Art Inkorporated print facility in Swanage. The workshop will conclude around 5pm on 9 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

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.

Celia - 6th Aug, 2019

An absolutely brilliant and, in my view, essential workshop for any photographer looking to get the most from their images in print. I really didn't know where to begin with printing beforehand and, having looked for some time for a course that could help demystify the process, I was delighted to stumble upon this workshop. As well as having excellent knowledge, experience and technical expertise in printing, Andy and Adrian are both extremely talented photographers so the content and pace ove

Martin - 10th Jul, 2019

Adrian and Andy are extremely knowledgeable about their specialisms and photography in general. Equally importantly, they are both very approachable, encouraging and supportive in their 1 to 1 and group interactions. The workshop was really informative and really motivational. Altogether, a fabulous week-end. Thank you both!

A great course to take your printing to a professional level, with informative tuition from both Adrian and Andy on day one followed by practical tuition and printing on day two. Highly recommended if you print at home or want to prepare your images for professional printing.

The two day course was filled with good tuition and advice on printing with practical demonstrations that brought it to life. Would recommend this course for anyone who wants to take their photography to the next level.

Ester Riordan - 13th Jul, 2022

Well constructed covering everything you need to know about printing and types of paper to select. The pace matched the level of the participants and encouraged to ask questions without feeling stupid. The environment was warm and friendly allowing each one of us to absorb the new information being imparted. Good example of tell, show and do. Overall excellent course and well worth the money and time and so pleased Adrian was able to conduct in Devon so a big thank you to him.
