Aspects of Expression has evolved from Aspect2i which is a photography workshop company formed nearly 12 years ago by two professional landscape photographers, Paul Gallagher and Michael Pilkington. Since then, Paul and Michael have taken people to many countries around the world from China and Japan to the USA and Canada to name a few, but decided to create a new and exciting venture in educating photographers. Aspects of Expression is dedicated to teaching photographers new skills and making them more confident and capable at what they do.
Paul Gallagher & Michael Pilkington have been teaching photography for decades and jointly have over 45 years of experience in passing on knowledge. Aspects of Expression is about learning new skills in your photography. You may want to improve your black and white images or gain a greater understanding of how to calm the chaos of woodland environments. You may have just embarked on making your own prints or be contemplating launching a solo exhibition or making a book, whatever it may be, we cover it all and we love working with other photographers.
"Ask yourself this question. Are your finished images the best they can be?"
It is all too easy to make many trips out over the years to beautiful places in the world and return with hundreds of camera files that are hardly ever get looked at, or some that are processed, but never really look like the moment you were stood there with your camera. There are always skills to be learned out in the field, but there are often a lot more to be learned when you are sitting in front of your computer.
"Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field". Peter Adams
Our aim has always been, and always will be, about putting you first and nurturing your love and passion for photography, help to make you better at what you love. Aspects of Expression is the go-to place to gain knowledge whether that is from one of our field workshops, enrolling on one of our in-depth online courses or even to have a tailor made individual tuition program designed just for you. Photography and books go hand in hand and we are scheduling the release of a series of books to inspire and learn from and we will be sharing our thoughts and experiences through our journal periodically.
