Our Story

Shooting Copenhagen started life as a way for tourists and photography enthusiasts to enhance their skills while exploring the Danish capital. “I saw people using their camera’s pop-up flash in broad daylight and it reminded me of me…” jokes British-born photographer Matthew James, “…until I finally learnt how to switch the damn thing off!”

Since moving to Denmark in 2012, Matthew has been training others to take better photographs and to understand their cameras. “It’s frustrating when you’ve paid for this awesome piece of equipment yet don’t quite understand why the image is too dark or blurry,” he explains. “So I felt like I could help those who wanted it. It’s so rewarding to see someone’s images improve in such a short space of time.”

Word began to spread about Matthew’s workshops, and they eventually attracted attention from business leaders and employees who felt their company or organisation could benefit from such training.  Which is why we’re proud to now offer workshops for both business and pleasure.

What Others are Saying

I took a private workshop with Matthew to see if I had the skills to pursue one of my dreams: becoming a photographer. After that workshop, and some practice, I actually became a semi-pro photographer specialised in outdoor sports!

We hired Matthew to teach a group of us how to improve our photo skills for an upcoming conference in Florida. We saved money on hiring a photographer in the US, and we learnt so much – especially about portraits.

My sister and I joined Matthew on one of his Beginner’s Photography Workshops, and all we can say is, “Wow!” Matthew really knows how to improve your photography skills, no matter how good (or bad) you currently are.
