Basic photography course for those who want to take their camera skills beyond setting auto mode.
8 in stock
If you answer ‘Yes’ to any of those questions, then this Basic Photography Course is for you:
Do you have a camera but not really sure how to use it?
Is the mode dial stuck in Auto. Are there lots of confusing menus?
Do you want almost every shot you take to be a wall-hanger instead of consigning it so many the recycle bin?
Are your photos sometimes a bit blurry?
If your skills are already beyond this, that’s great. Please look at my Intermediate Training instead.
I have had an enormous range of people book on my basic photography course. Art students who want to improve their technical skills, business owners who want to take publicity shots, people who have bought a camera and don’t know how to use it and families looking for a different activity while they are here on holiday. My youngest student has been 13, my oldest 86.
Become familiar with your camera’s controls and learn the essentials of exposure, metering and composition, and avoid the rudimentary mistakes.
You’ll be able to handle your camera correctly and get into the right position to get the best shot.
Because this is one-to-one training, the syllabus is flexible. If you know a lot about one part of the course, we will skip over it and concentrate on another topic.
Then the second person is charged at £90 and then each additional person will be £60. I will take a maximum of six people on a course

A simple photography assignment.
Much of the course is built around landscape photography, but we also touch on action shots, portraits and photographing still life features.
This is a whole day course, 6 hours of training either side of a lunch break. It can also be split into two sessions. This course is usually held in Amble, but other venues are available on request. Travel costs may be applicable.
