About Fusion Photography Workshops
My names’ Steven Gosling and I’m a photographer specialising in landscape, travel and stylish fashion, dance, and portrait photography. I’m also a graphic designer and bring a lot of my photography skills into my design work and vice-versa… But my passion has always been photography.
My photography has been published on book covers, magazines, blogs, articles, adverts, and exhibited internationally in various galleries. I have also won quite a few awards and competitions.
I also invest heavily in my own continuing photography education. I keep up with the latest Photoshop developments and can often be found attending other people workshops.

I REALLY love teaching people how to create awesome pictures. If you let me, I could talk about photography all day, and get a massive kick to see people with results that make them feel proud.
I have organised over 200 photography related workshops, events, talks, and trips over the past 20 years.
My travel photography is quite extensive, taking in most of UK, Europe, Scandinavia (inside the Arctic Circle photographing the northern lights), Morocco, South Africa, Ireland, USA, Canada, Iceland, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Tibet, Vietnam, Cambodia, Turkey and Thailand.
Our workshops are upbeat and modern, and concentrate on themes such as travel, people, urban, location, high fashion, stylish portrait, and art nude. Often combining different genre’s to create interesting images.
Our workshops are designed with 2 things in mind:
1 – You enjoying yourself and have fun.
2 – Massively improving your photography skills and getting a feeling of pride when you look at your photographs.
My photography background
My interest in photography started around the age of 10 (around 1981) when my father gave me a Hanimex 110F Pocket Camera. Both the camera and I took dreadful photos, but I was hooked. A few more cameras later and my father bought me a Fujica AX-1 with a prime 50mm f1.8 lens. He had the AX-5 model so I could his lenses. My the time I left school all my spare money was spent on rolls of film. A few years later I bought a Nikon F-301 and started on my love for Nikon kit. Over the years, many more Nikon bodies and lenses were added to my kit bag. Together with a full black and white darkroom setup, I started exhibiting my images in galleries and exhibitions around the world.
Later I started shooting a lot of model, fashion, beauty and lifestyle images, but still kept my love of the landscape. For around 8 years I ran Norfolk Photographic Workshops where I organised weekly photo shoots, talks, and other photo events. From here I started travelling more and developed a love for travel photography.
Dance photography was my next specialism, often combining this with big ball gowns. I love mixing genre’s to come up with creative images. After a few years I had a collection of big ball gowns and dresses (my wife jokes I own more dresses than she does) and after realising people were wanting to learn dance photography, I started a few workshops teaching dance photography. From here a bucket list item was the Venice Carnival. I attended and discovered this gem of a photo opportunity. Realising it was difficult to shoot the costumed characters with any control, I decided to merge my dance photography with some ball gowns (not out of place at the Venice Carnival) with a ballerina model and for the past few years I have developed this theme in a few different directions. But my Ballet & Ball Gowns Workshop at the Venice Carnival is my favourite!
In 2020 (a year no one will forget!) I started expanding my travel workshop plans and will soon have a schedule of interesting workshops based around travel, fashion, dance and ball gowns.
