Have you got a photography related question that needs answering? Or are you just looking for a bit of support and encouragement? Welcome to the Shutter Hub Surgery.

Each month Shutter Hub members can book a 20 minute time slot and ask an expert for advice, run ideas past us, or just check in for a chat. We’re using Skype so that you can be anywhere in the world and still be able to connect.

You might want to use this once in a while, or every month, it’s up to you and all included in your membership fee.


Upcoming dates for surgeries:

29 June 2018 – Karen Harvey, Shutter Hub Creative Director
26 July 2018 – Karina Arrowsmith, Qualified Accountant
29 August 2018 – Jayne Lloyd, Shutter Hub Project Manager


Check out the details below about the surgery guests, and choose what suits you best. You can book your time slot on your members’ dashboard.

If you’re not a member but want to try the surgery out, you can book a one-off session for just £40. Get in touch for more info.
