Got yourself a camera but don’t know how to use it?

We’ll teach you how in just one day.

1-to-1 Class | By Zoom | £150

Your camera is really easy to use when you know how. Join one of our 1-to-1 live photography workshops with one of our professional photographers to learn in simple, non-technical language exactly how to operate your camera on Manual setting. That way you can take full advantage of your camera, and start shooting images you can be proud of.

We’ve been teaching people how to use their cameras for over a decade, on our award-winning photography holidays, so we know a thing or two about improving your camera skills. In fact, we’re so confident we can get you off Auto setting, we’ll guarantee you’ll use your Manual setting before you finish the session.

So, come join us on our jargon-free day, learn how to create the pictures you want to make and take control of your camera.

What you'll learn ...

We’ve all been there. You plough through the manual that comes with the camera for a while, but it’s about as clear as mud. You know that Auto setting isn’t really making full use of all the functions on the camera. And you’re keen to create exactly the pictures you want to take. But how do you get there?

On our 1-day photography workshops, we’ll give you simple, clear instruction on how your camera works. Then we’ll try out a range of different shots – portraits, still life, landscapes and more. To really see what your equipment will do.

Between 10am to 3pm, we’ll guide you slowly through only the essential switches and buttons – all in non-technical language – so it’s easy to understand. You’ll get 1-on-1 tuition at a pace that suits you. In no time you’ll be using your camera ready to take any type of shot – in any situation. And once you’ve grasped it, we’ll try out a range of professional styled shots on location to really show you what your camera can do.

In summary, you’ll get,
  • Non-technical tuition from Auto to Manual setting, at a pace that suits you
  • Guarantee you’ll be on Manual by the end of the day
  • Get 1-to-1 guidance from a professional photographer
  • Try out a range of professional-styled shots on location, so you can start to shoot images that you love
  • Have your shots reviewed at the end of the day

For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity.
