Miles Herbert is a working professional photographer based in Bournemouth, Dorset in the UK selling his images all over the world as well as being the owner of CaptiveLight Photography Workshops where photographers of all levels of ability can come and photograph a selection of subjects in our studio near Ringwood.

“I got bitten by the photography bug at the tender age of 7 when my father (who once worked for Kodak) gave me a Kodak Brownie 127 III for my birthday and a couple of rolls of film which started a lifelong passion and fascination with photography. By the age of 12 I was using a Pentax K1000 SLR (I still have it!)  and went through a string of Pentax cameras before switching to a Nikon FE, Nikon F80 and ultimately a Nikon F100 as a freelance photographer.


I made the crossover to digital in 2004 with a pair of Nikon 70D’s and never looked back, although I did make the switch to Canon equipment shortly after. Over the years my images have appeared, and continue to be used,  all over the world including the USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Australia, Japan and Asia. My photos have been used in various magazine publications, books, newspapers, as well as advertising, educational material, greetings cards, postcards and more recently digital uses including information touchscreens and of course on internet websites.


I have been lucky enough to earn a decent living from my cameras over the years and am only too happy to pass on some of my knowledge and experience to people who are just starting their own journey into photography which led me to set up Captivelight Photography Workshops in 2005”
