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.

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 your own transport to return to the hotel for the evening of 10th July and return to the studio on 11th July.

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 over the two days was perfect. There was just the right amount of technical information without being overwhelming and having the opportunity to get some practical experience in situ in Andy's own print workshop was invaluable. Andy and Adrian are extremely friendly and approachable guys too so the workshop was great fun as well as being informative. I would thoroughly recommend this workshop.

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!

Kevan - 9th Jul, 2019

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.

Paul - 9th Jul, 2019

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.
