I’m really excited to announce that Bootcamp 2013, my fourth 100% dedicated photography weekend will take place in Essex Friday 28 – Sunday 30th June 2013 !!!

Bootcamp 2013 is coming June 2013 from Cheryl Johnson on Vimeo.


Photography Bootcamp Weekend is completely focussed on teaching you how to create stunning pictures in any environment. I will demonstrate shooting in a wide variety of everyday situations and give specific techniques how to walk away with gorgeous images every time. Working in perfect lighting conditions to absolutely pants light ! You will shoot alongside me with real models in real world locations as well as a studio set-up. Yes, that’s right you will get to play with studio lighting. After the shoot I will show you my workflow and share my top secret post production techniques. In addition to having an action-packed schedule, there will be ample time to answer all of your burning questions. This workshop is loaded with all the technical, creative, artistic inspiration you can handle!


DSLR owners only I’m afraid, that are serious about improving their photography or considering a future career behind the lens.


Me, Cheryl Johnson, Professional Photographer Feel Good Photos & Instructor Feel Good Workshops more than ably assisted by friend and talented photographer Lesley.

I’ve signed up for the Shine Midnight Marathon on 1st October 2011.

More than a quarter of a million people are diagnosed with cancer each year. Cancer Research UK have made great progress in all areas but there is still a long way to go. They continue to make advances with life-saving work to ensure many more people survive but rely on the generosity and support of ordinary people like me and you.

In 2008 I ran the 5km Race for Life and this year I decided it was time to get my trainers out and do something new. I persuaded my friend Lesley to join me and together we will complete the 26 mile walk. We start at the O2 Arena at 8.30pm and finish back at the O2 several hours later no doubt ! !
