My 3-Step Process to Understanding Your Camera!

After many years in the photography industry and having my own successful photography business for 2 years. I am now extremely excited to share my skills and knowledge with you at my intensive beginners photography courses across 16 dates in 2018.

 

The courses will be held at the very fitting location of Wivenhoe House in Colchester, Essex. This beautiful Colchester venue has a lot to offer a keen photographer with its stunning grounds and incredible architecture.

 

Each photography course will be limited to a maximum of 15 students per day. This limit allows me to cater for all levels of ability as I will be able to give each individual some 1-2-1 tuition during the course of the day.

 

 

You can expect a relaxed and informal environment as I feel this is the best setting to be creative. It will also provide you with a chance to meet like-minded individuals who also share a passion for photography and you will all have the chance at some fantastic practical exercises too.

 

The beginners 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. My aim is to educate you on many different skills of photography that are transferable to a variety of photography genres such as wildlife, portrait and sports.

 

Lastly, do not worry about trying to remember everything I say throughout the day. I will be providing each student with a comprehensive overview of everything we have covered via email after the course has finished.
