About iPhotography Tutors
iPhotography brings together a team of expert photographers with decades of experience across a range of photography genres. This exciting blend of experience, skill and technical know-how, combined with a unique mix of enthusiastic personalities, is precisely why iPhotography courses are so highly regarded and why our students get such incredible results so quickly!
There are lots of ‘one-man band’ photographers selling courses and workshops, but none can match the depth, experience, world-class support and personal guidance provided by the iPhotography team!
Stephen (Head Tutor)
Despite only joining the iPhotography team in 2017, Stephen brings many years of photographic experience with him to his role as content and course creator.
After leaving art school he went straight into studio photography working alongside Photo Corp UK, before running one of the UK’s most successful high-end portrait studios with Venture Studios for over a decade.
His personal work which stretches from portraits to landscapes, and other niches in between could be described as atmospheric and low key – sounds moody, but he’s not really! He’s previously had work showcased by Adobe Photoshop on top of many industry awards for his portraits.
Nick has been taking photos ever since he was given a Kodak Instamatic camera (which he still has!) on his 5th birthday in 1964. Nick’s father and grandfather were both keen photographers and encouraged him to follow suit by handing down their old SLRs, and by the time he was a teenager he was using his dad’s retired Pentax (he’d moved on to use Nikon) and shooting transparencies on Kodachrome. Nick eventually decided to study photography seriously in the early 90s and went on to gain a BA and qualify for membership of the BIPP.
After his degree, Nick worked as a professional photographer in both Manchester and Liverpool. Work was varied and covered architecture, performance, arts, food, fashion, portraiture…you name it he’s probably done it at some point! Nick has also studied critical theory at post graduate level and taught photography and history of art at South Trafford College. Currently, he works in an independent art gallery, teach circus skills and takes photos for his own creative pleasure.
From as young as she can remember, animals have been a major part of Rachel’s life. After studying photography for four years and working in a busy high street studio shooting weddings and portraits, Rachel realised her calling was amongst the animals.
Since 2007 Rachel has been photographing dogs on location and wild animals all over the world. Having spent copious hours on Kenya’s savannahs capturing wildlife at its rawest, Rachel leads photographic safaris in East Africa’s most magnificent wildlife hot spots and workshops in the UK amongst its notorious elusive wildlife.
Rachel loves helping her students create stunning images of wild animals that are worth sharing as she feels each and everyone of us can make a real difference to conservation and inspire others to care more about our natural world.

The ever-dependent Liam is one of the first names you’ll see pop up on our support desk. If you’ve got a technical query, Liam won’t be far away!
When he’s not in work you’ll no doubt find Liam in local woodland hunting down creepy crawlies and ‘fera flores’ – that’s wildflowers to you and me!
Though known as the ‘travelling one’ in the office Frank has curtailed his worldwide adventures now he’s become a family man. We’re sure it’s only a matter of time before that passports out again though.
Frank assists with editing our video content and product shipment. Though, like all of us, his true passion is photography.
Though you may not hear much of him in the gallery but James is an important member of our team. You tend to find him working on future projects and helping out with technical website updates and assignments.
Though he’s still very handy with a camera James tends to be more an art lover than an art maker. It’s almost guaranteed he’s been an exhibition, gallery or museum on his time off. If he had the money he’d have a Damien Hirst installation in his house, fortunately for James’ partner, he doesn’t.
