Meet The Photo Iconic Tutors

Welcome to our tutor page. Our tutors are all working professional photographers with a passion for photography and a great sense of humour. We believe we can share our knowledge and experience in a clear and concise way while making the learning experience both rewarding and fun.

Most importantly, our tutors are there to help you not to take their own pictures.

Chris Coe is a self-taught photographer who, since turning professional in 1992, has combined his passion for photography with a love of travel. He photographs landscapes, people, wildlife and architecture in a range of formats including 35mm, panoramic and medium format using both film and digital cameras.

His work has been widely published in newspapers, magazines and books and his clients include major multinational companies. Chris has shot over 40 travel and coffee table books. His first book on photography, ‘The Art of Landscape Photography' is widely used as a reference work. Chris lectures on a variety photographic subjects, including travel, landscape and stock photography, at major conferences.
These events include Focus on Imaging, Adobe Live and the Adventure Travel Live. He has also presented photographic features for TV.

After many years working in the travel industry and seeing at first hand how little recognition is given to many of the very talented photographers who shoot travel related imagery, Chris decided to set up the Travel Photographer of the Year awards. This competition is now in its tenth year and has become ‘the' major international showcase for travel photography.

Jeremy Hoare
After a long and distinguished career as a television cameraman, Jeremy Hoare now shoots mainly stills but the convergence of digital stills and high definition video increasingly affords him the opportunity to combine both his passions. During his career in television, Jeremy has worked with many of the "greats" during the heyday of British television including Laurence Olivier, John Gielgud, Bing Crosby, Alec Guinness, and Rudolf Nureyev. His love of dance and performance has seen him return to moving images and he has recently been the main cameraman on shoots of the ballets Sleeping Beauty, Peter Pan, Cinderella and Coppelia in Kyoto, Japan.

Jeremy is our expert on all courses where we teach HD video.
