Workshops

Develop your aviation photography, editing and end product skills at all levels.

Whether you are just starting out, a die-hard enthusiast or seasoned pro, COAP aims to work with you with a tailored series of Workshops across all levels and multiple aviation genres. You will learn the basic, intermediate and creative editing techniques, right up to the delivery of the end product - whether that’s a portfolio, magazine article, or you own published book.

These are offered to groups of 10 photographers at a time, up and down the country, with a full day of theme-specific tuition (overnight stays as optional extras).

• Get the absolute best out of your aviation photography and your images
• Learn how to use Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop for your aviation images
• Learn the “how to” tips and tricks
• Bring out the best of your images with file handling post-processing and creative editing techniques
• Turn redundant images into a stunning portfolio
• The business side of aviation photography and delivering an end product
• No more images left on hard-drives, doing nothing!

  • Holding a camera doesn't make a person a photographer, same as holding a driving licence doesn't make someone a driver… COAP may possibly be (for me) a game changer.

    Adrian, Mildenhall.

  • I came out of that workshop buzzing. A very enjoyable, relaxed and well planned event attended by a varied selection of aviation photography enthusiasts that bodes well for the future of COAP.

    Adrian, Workshop.

  • I enjoyed the course, I learned from it, and it has made me want more - both in terms of my photography and the mechanics of it. The brief showing of LR opened my eyes, and I know that I need to raise my game, to learn a lot more about my whole approach, and I see COAP as being the vehicle for that improvement.

    Adrian, Workshop.

  • It was extremely informative and taught me a lot about taking aviation pictures even though I have been doing it for 30 years. I can’t wait to try things out.

    Andy, Whetstone.

  • In a word: Superb. Nothing but praise from start to finish.

    Ian, Assignment.

  • The talk on the Monday and the met/base/operations brief on Tuesday morning were sensational and reinforced the tremendous sense of privilege that I felt being on the trip.

    Ian, Assignment.

  • It really was an excellent visit right from the start… and as I look through my images (again!) I have to pinch myself to bring home the fact that I really was there and I was that close

    Ian, Oxted.

  • Exceptional, unrestricted access to life on a front-line squadron that is normally denied to members of the public.

    Leigh, Colchester.

  • Two events down and certainly from my point of view, two successes. My main reason for booking these events is to improve my photography and to learn from more experienced hands and I feel that I am coming away from events moving forwards each time

    Neil, Buckingham.
