Photography courses

Welcome to our photography courses for 2013.

Aimed at budding beginners (film or digital) and intermediate photographers, the purpose and point to our photography courses is to learn new skills faster, yet in a relaxed professional manner.

Our photography courses on the rugged coastline of Dorset and in the tranquil Lake District of Cumbria, you will be interacting with like-minded enthusiasts to discover and share new skills in a relaxed professional environment. In my experience, it’s quite frustrating trying to share a passion for photography with people that don’t understand, or even care about your photography. Share your passion with people that DO care and understand completely about your photography.

Get to know your camera.

So, you have invested some money and time researching your camera preference, Canon, Nikon Dslr or a new mirrorless and taken a few pix at the weekend. Asking youself what does this do… how can i do that and why do my pix not look like as good as they should.

On our photography courses, ALL your unanswered questions will be answered from hands-on practical experience, in a manner thats easy to understand.

While building an impressive portfolio, you will get to understand more about focusing for tack sharp images. Breaking the ice with your comfort zones and learning specific skills.

Black and white photography and metering. How to focus manually and switch off your AUTO with confidence. Be inspired to visualise your photography and see land/seascapes as Fine Art, backed up with our ongoing  support, online.

Our photography courses start in April and May 2013.

Starting in April, one of my photography collegues Ian will be managing a weekend 3 day photography course in Dorset.

I will be managing 5 day photography courses in the English Lake District each month, starting on May 12th -17th 2013. A personal favourite of mine, the Hotel is situated in an amazing location for land/seascapes, a short walk from the beach, a great place to start and end your day.
