Photography Courses

My one day beginner’s intensive photography course, based at my Staplehurst Studios, will allow you to take control of your camera, and develop your understanding of the art and technique of photography. There will be a mixture of classroom work to teach you fundamental skills and practical work to see them in practice. You are guaranteed to leave feeling you have a far better grasp of your camera and can develop those skills to create the artistic results you desire.

This course is designed for beginners and improvers who would like to understand their camera more and use it more effectively. No tripod is needed for this course but you will need a DSLR or Mirrorless camera to fully take part. The course last from 10:00 to approximately 16:30 with coffee breaks and 30 minutes for lunch.
