It's surprising how much you can learn in such a short time.


We will work closely with award-winning cook and hostess Jeannie, whose knowledge and love of Andalucian cuisine shines through in the beautiful food she has served up at Finca Buenvino for the last 27 years. Her recipes will be featured in a new cookery book to be launched in London next year:


"The Buenvino Cookbook, Recipes from our farmhouse in Spain."


We will not only photograph the prepared food, but also work with the amazing produce from the organic vegetable garden that serves as a larder for Jeannie’s cooking. We will visit local producers and restaurants to get a feel for the local produce for which this beautiful region is justly famous .


Tim says:


"We will be shooting a wide variety of disciplines and I will attempt to take you out of your comfort zone, whilst learning about technique, both 'in the camera' and in the wild reaches of 'post production'. The workshop will take in everything from still life, through food photography, landscapes, portraits and lifestyles . We will indulge in two of my favourite pastimes - photography, and eating & drinking in some of Spains finest tapas bars."

What people say about our Photography Course


"Being taught by Tim Clinch felt like a rare treat. He was not only extremely informative and helpful in progressing all our camera skills, whatever our levels but he was also kind, patient and extremely good fun .

I’d go on another of his courses like a shot."

THOMASINA MIERS - Masterchef winner and owner of Wahaca Restaurants in London


"Tim Clinch understood why I was there and was able to guide me in a direction that was completely outside of what I would consider my comfort zone. Having someone in your life that has the same passion is important."

"Spending five days learning from Tim was amazing – not only was he an excellent instructor but also a charismatic tour guide of some of the best that the area around Aracena has to offer."

Natural Light Photography Course in Spain

Daily classes include the natural approach to food photography without the use of artificial lighting, using reflectors and diffusers to enhance your images, cooking and styling, working on a photo-shoot for a major publication, building portfolio content and story development, and sharing many 'tricks of the trade'. All work is digital, and students' work will be reviewed on a daily basis and posted to a dedicated NATURAL LIGHT workshop gallery. All cooking is done with local and natural ingredients.


These are very much 'hands-on' workshops. Students work directly with Tim using their own cameras, no matter how basic. A laptop and an external hard drive are always on hand, but it is essential that students bring their own equipment as well. A questionnaire is sent to each student before commencing the course so that we can assess their levels and specific points of interest.

Workshops are 7 hours per day, starting after breakfast at 10.00. We stop for lunch at 1.30 and, yes, we ARE in Spain so a siesta, or a swim in the amazing infinity pool follow! Classes resume at 4.00 and finish in the golden evening light at 8.00. We will also visit the local town of Aracena and some of the picturesque small villages, dropping in on some of the region’s best food pproducers and village artisans.
