Training - Claire Watson Photography

The goal of all my training is to help businesses be more successful by better using images to talk to their customers and potential customers. Or if you prefer in marketing speak ‘to facilitate SMEs and solopreneurs to visually communicate more effectively with their target market driving engagement and sales’.

Would you like help with your images?


Then what would deliver the most for you, your business, your company?


A focus on continuous improvement looking at your product, personnel, environment, equipment etc. Developing a set of visual guidelines, knowledge and resources with regular tailored training, assessment and feedback on what images deliver the best results.


A one off information and training session, that looks at the same things as above, but with the goal of leaving you with the visual guidelines and knowledge to implement the plan to maximise those resources as suits you.


A training course that touches on a variety of topics and as everyone has different needs and demands on their time there are 3 options. Each course will run seasonally with #T4B3 alternating between weekdays and weekends and #T4B6x alternating between weekday mornings and evenings.
