David (and Lucy)


I'm David Shoukry, your host for Bath Photography Courses! I run English Photoworks, a studio and on-location photography business, based in the beautiful Wiltshire town of Corsham, just 8 miles from Bath. I have a background in education, having taught in independent schools for a number of years before working full-time in photography: teaching people to improve their photography is a happy combination of my skills. I studied Music at Oxford University in the '90s, and music still remains one of my great loves.

I'm busy photographing lots of professional performers (singers, actors and dancers), as well as plenty of family and children's photography, and beautiful personal branding work for businesses. You can see a few of my recent portrait commissions below. I live with my wife, daughter and our two dogs.

Bath Photography Courses is a way for me to pass on my knowledge of, and passion for, photography in a way that's enjoyable and useful. The aim is that you can take one of the courses, going away with a host of new skills that you can immediately apply to your own photography. You'll take away valuable resource material so you don't forget what you've learned, and spend the day learning and shooting with other like-minded photographers.  Lots of people we see just want to master the DSLR they've treated themselves to, or maybe to take better photos of their children. Whatever your photographic needs are, one of the courses will help you get to the next level. We love designing bespoke courses for people who prefer to work one-to-one.

We operate the courses in and around Bath, and all the studio work takes place in Corsham, which has a host of gorgeous country pubs serving a great lunch. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you'd like to find out more or book a course.
