What others have to say:

Jess Evans

I attended a training workshop at Russ' studio, and I cannot recommend him enough. Russ is such a talented photographer, full of knowledge and experience and totally down to earth. He is a great host and gave off such a relaxed feeling to the day. He gave us so much information to take away- things I wouldn't have even thought about. He is so willing to help and support us, even after the workshop. I've needed some advice regarding lighting, and he was more than willing to send me an email with his recommendations—definitely a wise investment and worth every penny. I know I'll be back to train with him again in the future!

Anne-Marie Sackfield

I recently attended one of Russ Jackson's newborn workshop. It was fantastic. I've been working at and improving my photography skills with the aim of becoming a newborn photographer and wanted to learn how to pose babies and needed some business advice. Russ showed us all his little tricks to soothe and relax babies and how to pose them in such a lovely gentle way. Doing the workshop and listening to all Russ advice has really boosted my confidence. Russ is very patient and will answer all your questions and more. The one day workshop really was worth the money and time spent and I most certainly will attend more of Russ courses in the future.

Anyela Lee

I had the pleasure of attending Russ' newborn workshop. He's extremely professional and willing to share his knowledge and experience. The workshop exceeded all of my expectations.
I cannot recommend Russ' workshop enough. I'm very happy with all the knowledge and tips, especially with lighting baby safety and flow posing.
I left the workshop full of inspiration and knowledge to start my own business.
