My name is Ian Turpin and I am a qualified teacher currently teaching photography to adults at Sir John Deane's College in Northwich, Cheshire. These are evening classes and are designed to follow on, one after the other.

Each course is 8 weeks in duration and runs in the evening typically from 7pm to 9pm.

Please see the gallery at the bottom of this page for examples of project boards completed as part of the course(s).
