Thursday Morning Session - Zoe Richards


Dovecote Training provides photography and business training to SMEs and large organisations. The lead trainer, Zoe Richards, has over 20 years experience of organisational development and management training, along with 5 years working as a social and fashion photographer. She is passionate about learning, and about helping people reach their potential, and continues to enjoy learning for herself too.

Although Zoe has been in the photography industry a relatively short period of time, she has already achieved a range of awards from the BIPP and MPA in the north west, and has carried the titles of North West Fashion Photographer of the Year, North West Studio Portrait Photographer of the Year and North West Environmental Portrait Photographer of the Year


Zoe is going to be looking at marketing your business and this will provide an excellent basis for the afternoon session.


Thursday Afternoon Session - Mark Pearson


Business Advisory and SEO Implementation


Mark has been involved in the photographic industry since 1991 and is a qualifed member of The Master Photographers Association having completed both the panel submission and Diploma In Photographic Practice. In addition he previously qualified as LSWPP before resigning from the organisation. As a passionate working photographer with a busy photography business based in Rawdon near Leeds, over the years he has acquired a wealth of knowledge and information from simple marketing tips, affordable methods of advertising through to the assisting in the design, build and optimising of photographers websites for search engines.


For many years he has helped aspiring part time and full time professional photographers to improve their businesses, increase profitability, attract new clients and assisted in complete restructuring and rebranding of photography based businesses. This has taken the form of both personal 1-2-1 days and business presentations / talks to photographers at open days and seminars across the UK.


This time he is coming to us to give some practical advice on how you can take your marketing ideas (hence why we started with Zoe) and apply them to your site.


Friday Morning Session


I am hoping to have a practical session with a difference - a new marketing idea for many that can be highly profitable - you will need your cameras and hopefully we can also raise some money for Charity - more details to follow.



We still want to maintain the good value that we have previously offered and charge only £50 for the event. We are paring costs right down so there can be no discounts. Payment can be made on this page. We are also looking at holding a Dinner in the Lodge which including a half bottle of wine should be £20.
