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
