Hi, I'm Emily Quinton. I teach people to take better photographs.
Great images will help you promote whatever it is that you do – a business, blog, or a creative project. But posting consistently high quality images that tell your story to those that follow you can be hard.
I run inspiring, practical workshops that help you understand how to use your camera or phone to take great images. We're all leading busy lives, so this is all about helping you fit photography into your every day life or work.
My workshops cover food, styling, business mentoring, instagram and taking images for social media.
In 2017 Makelight will be hosting fewer face-to-face workshops, in order to focus on providing an amazing resource for our members, and develop our online courses. Any workshops we do run will be listed here.
"I attended The Visual Social Media course. I found it very inspiring. Emily was warm, friendly and a great source of information and advice. Since then I have started my blog with Emily's great advice." Natasha, Taking a Moment in Time
"During the workshop I was given the knowledge to take and style great photos. Emily is the most wonderful teacher, very encouraging and was eager to ensure that all students photographic needs were met. I have since had the confidence to use my own photography on my blog posts and my Instagram feed has significantly improved" Doris, Diary of An Interior Novice
I've been taking photographs my whole life and teaching for several years.
I love to inspire people to fall in love with photography and to learn to take beautiful images with whatever camera they have.
Every day I post instagrams I've shot on my iPhone. For my portfolio and client work I love shooting with my Canon SLR.
We host our workshops in our bright studio that's always full of light, even on a cloudy day!
