Welcome to f11 Workshops, the home of photography workshops by Rachael Talibart. We offer high quality day tours and workshops in the South East, catering for all levels of photography from beginner to the most experienced. Our leaders, Rachael Talibart and Adrian Beasley, are experienced photographers with impressive portfolios but we believe it takes more than that to be a good leader. They are also dedicated to helping you take your photography to the next level.
COVID-19 UPDATE July 4th 2020: We are taking steps to ensure that, where safe, our workshops can go ahead during this difficult time and we will be contacting everyone with bookings individually as their workshop dates approach. If we have to postpone a workshop for COVID reasons and you are not able to attend on the new date, you can either bank your deposit with us for a future workshop or we will refund it in full. So you may book with complete confidence.
With small groups, usually 4 on our location-based workshops and 8 in the classroom, the individual comes first on f11 workshops. There is no one size fits all attitude here! The itineraries on our location-based workshops and tours are devised by Rachael based on her own in-depth knowledge of each place gleaned over many years of living and working there herself. Rachael usually leaves her camera at home while out on our workshops, so that she can fully concentrate on you.
Explore the site, and tell us what you think; we’d love to hear from you. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
More tours and dates are being added all the time but if you see a tour you like that happens to be fully booked or scheduled for a date you cannot make, please contact us and we will do our best to cater for your interest and diary. We also hold waiting lists for our workshops so please let us know if you'd like your name to be added to any of them.
Thank you for a great workshop yesterday. The day was full of advice, help, interesting locations and banter, the time went far too quickly. I came home shattered but with lots of ideas and wanting to do more. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise so freely.

Yesterday was so very much what I wanted it to be. Sometimes days like that can be a little disappointing after the fact, but I can honestly say you made it simply perfect! You generously gave your time and expertise even though, with the wonderful light, I knew your fingers were itching to be making your own images.
I had a cracking day ..... For my first workshop it was a fab experience , you set the bar very high for future workshops for me!!!! Thank you kindly for all your encouragement, advice, help and showing us some stunning locations.
