Liz and Nathalie met through their love of photography and hit it off immediately. After many cups of coffee and the odd glass of wine, discussing how they would love to share their skills helping other people discover their own passion for photography, they began to formulate a plan and in 2018, New Shoots Photography Training was born.

Together, Nathalie and Liz have so far created three unique workshops all based in the Borough Market area, with each workshop, offering expertise in different aspects of photography.

For the enthusiastic amateur who owns a DSLR, desperately needing help to get started, or someone who perhaps needs a refresher in the basic techniques, to the smartphone camera user who really wants to improve the photos they are taking with their phones. New Shoots Photography Training’s most recent workshop has been devised for business owners who need help with content creation for marketing purposes using smartphone photography combined with Instagram insight.
