Two Day Comprehensive Digital Camera Lessons For Beginners and Improvers

Friendly tuition and gentle theory to help you get more from your digital SLR camera. Designed for the complete beginner with a new camera or those that want to move on from automatic mode. Use your camera’s different functions to confidently record natural textures and details.

Beginning in the more controlled setting of the studio then moving out into the spectacular surroundings of the coastline. Add a new dimension to your walks and holidays. Develop your photographer’s eye to compose beautiful shots. Leave with a mini-portfolio of shots to be proud of.

Bring your digital camera, a tripod if you have one, and some enthusiasm and we will supply the rest. You will learn not only the theory of controlling the camera but also how to seek out beautiful shots you can be proud of. This two day course costs £200. The course runs from 10am until 4pm each day.

Our Photography classes make great retirement presents and ‘big birthday’ gifts. Did you know the first wedding anniversary is paper? Bring your husband or wife on a course and leave with a framed paper photograph! Finally if you’re buying a new camera for a beginner, this course can give them the skills to fully use their camera.

One Day Introductory Photography Workshop

First Steps Away from Auto Mode

If you would like to take the first steps towards taking more control of your camera then this course is for you. Designed for total beginners as a basic introduction to digital photography tuition.

Want to know how to freeze motion or deliberately blur the action? If you’d like to know how to make a subject stand out by blurring the background Laura can show you how.

This course can be taken as a precursor to any of our other photo courses as a confidence booster, why not see if you get on with Laura’s relaxed teaching style before committing to further study.

Bring your digital camera, a tripod if you have one, and some enthusiasm and we will supply the rest. This one day course costs £100. The course runs from 10am until 3pm each day.

One Day Manual Photography Workshop

Take total control of your camera

If you want to take full control of your DSLR or CS (Compact System) camera then this is the course for you. Learn to set the shutter and aperture independently using inbuilt light meters. Tips and advice tailored to your needs and wants.

Ideal for those who have been on our Introductory shutters and apertures or our two day and are looking to take the leap into full manual control of their camera. This course is not for you if you are a total beginner.

Laura will guide you through shooting both inside and out of the studio, tackling more challenging subjects. Ideal as a refresher if you have bought a new camera since last attending or want a one day skills boost before a big holiday.

Bring your digital camera, a tripod if you have one, and some enthusiasm and we will supply the rest. This one day course costs £100. The course runs from 10am until 3pm each day.

One Day Creative Composition Photography Workshop

Don't take Boring Photos!

If you would like to take more interesting photographs then this is the course for you. Ideal for couples and groups with mixed photo knowledge and experience. A gentle day with an illustrated talk on composition followed by a photo walk, whatever the weather.

Enjoy lunch then review your shots with the group and go home with a framed print to be proud of. This course can be a stand alone day and assumes no previous knowledge. Any camera at all can be used, even your camera phone. No equipment snobbery here!

This course is an ideal add on to any of our other courses, if you first came to visit in the summer and fancy a winter shoot, or you are just missing the studio and the biscuits. Escape for the day and see how different the same walk can be depending on the weather, the light, even your mood.

Bring your camera, some enthusiasm and we will supply the rest. This one day course costs £100. The course runs from 10am until 3pm each day.
