Photo Workshops

       Would you like to get more out of your photography and get the images you want! Do you want to get away from the auto button and take control of the camera for youself. Then Drumstudio Photographer David can help you. The workshops are a great informal way of learning, a way to find out what all those buttons and dials on the camera mean and do. He will also help you with compostion and the use of light to give your photos more impact and wow factor. You may have had your camera for years and never really got to grips with it. You may have just bought a D.S.L.R. or you may have received one as a gift. If so, just one workshop day will help you to get so much more from your camera.  Whether you have a D.S.L.R., a small compact or even just your phone, each workshop will run either on a one to one basis or an open workshop with maximum of 3 to 4 people, this way David will be able to help you individually get the best out of your photography. You could just press and hope for the best or you could take up a place on a workshop day, then you can impress everbody with your stunning images.

Drumstudio Photography

Weddings, Portraits, Business

Based in Charlbury Oxfordshire England on the edge of the Cotswolds.

When originally set up this website was a way for my friends to view the photos taken at events primarily in North West Oxfordshire. The name Drumstudio is derived from my initials D.R.M. and photography studio, the u was just added to make it sound more musical as most of the photos featured local bands. Since then times have changed and so has the website, as time has gone on the photos have  become much more diverse. Having gone full time  in 2013, it is now host to a wide range of images; flora and fauna, landscapes, architecture, events and weddings.

Drumstudio services are available to all. Interested? Then go to the photographic services page for costs.
