Photography course

Our successful and 5 star rated photography courses are designed to be practical, educational and relevant. Offering individuals, groups and business owners the chance to enhance and develop their photography passion and skill set.
We know that photography is a popular and ever-growing hobby and deservedly so! It often starts with a gift or purchase of a lovely expensive DSLR camera, which sadly makes its way to the back of a cupboard until the next year.

We are dedicated to getting those cameras back in action by sharing our photography skills, experience and desire with like-minded people who wish to use photography for their business,
pleasure or to simply capture those special moments.

Our beginner’s photography course will focus primarily on helping you understand the manual settings on your DSLR camera, with a particular focus on portraiture, in both indoor and outdoor conditions.
