Who is the Silver Intermediate Course for?

Are you already able to compose a great photo and choose the settings for the right exposure?
Or, maybe you came on one of my Bronze Basic Courses and feel like you want to take your skills further
Then this course is for you.
This Silver Intermediate Course is also suitable for those who have done the NCFE Level 1 or 2 courses.

What does the Silver Course include?

This course will refresh the basics of photography and then take you up to the next level. We will cover:

Advanced metering and metering modes
Metering compensation and selective exposure
Hyperfocal Distance and manual focus

Shooting for black and white.

The golden section

Discovering your camera and lens limitations
Choosing the right lens for the right photograph.


Shooting in the gold and blue hours. (Evening photoshoot, date set by mutual agreement)
Night shoot (Again by mutual agreement)

Raw and image development


You will get a photography project and ongoing help with your questions answered.

Where is the course held?

The course will be based in and around the Alnwick area and it’s held outdoors, so will be weather dependent. (In case of inclement weather we postpone the lesson.)
As with all my courses it is hands on and you’ll be taking lots of photographs. There is no writing involved.

What will I need to bring?

You need either a Bridge, Mirroless (CSC) or DSLR camera.
A tripod will be useful, but not essential.

I have mobility restrictions or health issues. can I come on the course?

Yes. I try to make the courses accessible to everyone.

How many people will be on the course?

I restrict the courses to six participants. I run the courses even if only one person signs up.


Note, this course overlaps the May bank holiday and, although I can deliver the course that week,  we may postpone that session to accommodate course participants if necessary.

    As I write this I have one lesson still remaining before I complete this course. Over the last six weeks Ivor has taken me from fumbling with the controls on the back of my camera to feeling far more confident and able to adapt to changing light and focus without losing the shot! We have covered a huge range of topics from under exposure to over exposure, fill flash, isolating subjects, differing light, Fibonacci and so much more. At all times Ivor’s patience and unhurried manner has coaxed photographs from me and my camera that I had previously doubted I was ever going to be capable of.
    I’m now looking forward to stepping out on my photographic journey and finding my own subjects and being able to produce images I can be proud of.
    If you want to move from snapshots to images you can be truly proud of get in touch with this man!
