New course dates announced


I’m really pleased to announce new dates for my courses!

The beginners course starts on Wednesday the 15th of April and runs for 5 weeks.  We have field trips at weekends where we go and put into practice what we’ve learned in the classroom.  This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about your camera and how to take the photos that you want and not to leave everything to the camera to make the choices for you! … and no you don’t need the latest SLR with very expensive lenses!  Even ‘bridge’ camera users will be able to apply the techniques we use.

Then on Saturday the 6th June the Studio introduction course starts with an introduction in the classroom, followed the Saturday after (13th June) with a live model in the studio using our lighting and backgrounds.   You will learn how to work with a model and some good external lighting techniques.  Even if you don’t plan to take this up it’s a really fascinating introduction to how lighting works and affects the look of your photos.
