What will I learn on this three hour photography workshop?

This is the ideal photo course for complete beginners, or those with new cameras that want help with the controls and buttons.

The 3 hour starter session is designed with an emphasis on playing with the camera, exploring some of the buttons and dials,  and exploring a beginners guide to getting correct exposures.

The photo workshop is limited to 3 hours so that you avoid brain fatigue, and most importantly, acts as a preliminary class for further, more in-depth workshops, which help you to improve. A worksheet is provided to help you remember which buttons do what!

If you have a small group of friends and family that wish to attend together, then get in touch to arrange a date and a discounted group rate.

Great for teachers or Duke Of Edinburgh students wishing to brush up your knowledge and practical skills, and discover the secrets of good photography.

Perfect for students wishing to learn the basics before they head off to art college.

Available (Edinburgh Only) as a 1-2-1 three hour session or full day for personal tuition. Hourly rate is 30.00 and can be booked by email. Card payments can be taken on the day if required.
