One-to-one training to suit your schedule

Mentor sessions are tailored completely to you, whether you are a complete novice or have been using your camera for many years.



meet Ellie

I’m Ellie Cotton and the owner & photographer of Dandelion Photography, I picked up my first SLR camera at just 11 years old - over 30 years ago.

Everyone knows me as a photography obsessive. I started as a teenager photographing mostly landscapes and trees, and in my 20’s turned to travel photography as I explored many corners of the world. My photography changed again after my birth of my children, and I launched my photography business around 10 years ago, specialising in family and commercial photography.

There's not much I haven't studied and refined at some point in my career. And I also love teaching, and showing how rewarding photography can be, especially when it comes to photographing your own children.



If you are a beginner and you’re still using AUTO mode, but aren’t able to attend one of my ROCK YOUR CAMERA workshops, we can cover the same content with 3 hours mentoring, priced at £160.

If you are comfortable using aperture-priority or manual-mode, we can explore how to find the best light and how to step up your composition. We can also fine-tune technical skills, if you feel you have the knowledge but not getting the results you want. Mentoring can be booked in 2 hour (£120) or 3 hour (£160) sessions.
