Fox & Gem Photography Education

Helping you define your style

Fox & Gem Photography is dedicated to helping photographers develop their own styles, and to be confident using their artist voices. Our online workshops are interactive, challenging, and designed to help you think about your actions as a photographer more critically - from conceptualizing your sessions to camera settings, posing, styling, use of light, to post production and creative editing. Your time with us won't just elevated the photographer you are now - it will teach you to continue to challenge and push yourself and your art throughout your photographic journey.

Those joining us for online education will be added to the Facebook group specific to that workshop. After it has ended, you'll be invited to join our Workshop Attendee group, an exclusive FB community where we can support each other, continue to learn together, participate in monthly editing challenges, and learn about new content, gatherings, shoot-outs and workshops first.
