Or do you simply want to move beyond your smartphone and capture better movies of your family holidays or childrens’ parties?
Today’s cameras give you the ability to record video in ways that used to be the exclusive domain of professionals.
My DSLR video course with Gyuri was fantastic. It perfectly combined theory with practice so I now have the confidence and knowledge to go anywhere in the world and shoot movies. Gyuri is very patient and has a very thorough and professional understanding of film meaning he can cater the lesson exactly to your needs. I would highly recommend this course to anyone!

Very good video course. Small class size and lots of individual attention. The teacher was extremely knowledgeable and very enthusiastic which made the day very enjoyable. I would highly recommend.
James Ellis, Canon 80D
Another excellent course! Well structured and learned a lot! Interesting mix of indoor and outdoor practice. I have and will continue to recommend this school.
Great video course! Gyuri tailored the course content to allow individual needs and was very approachable. We practiced in a variety of environments, which was useful, as we could put all what we’ve learnt in action.
I am trying to become an expert taking videos of events. It was a great day, very useful to fine tune my skills. Gyuri was very patient and expert in explaining anything. I’ll definitely love to recommend.

I took this course to improve my event photography. I’ve learnt how to use light, shutter speed and aperture when filming. I enjoyed the hands-on activities, it made it much more understandable and practical. I would definitely recommend.

Full day of video training
The videography course normally runs from 10.00am to 4.00pm with around half an hour for lunch and one tea / coffee break.

The course will teach you how to take control of your camera in order to:
- get your exposure right – understand the principle and practice of metering
- learn how to get a good exposure for your shots in under 30 seconds
- understand and learn to set up the basic parameters of your exposure: aperture, shutter speed and ISO – learn to use them as the creative tools that they are
- learn how to select a lens for your video (including a praise for old, manual lenses)
- understand what your camera is and is NOT capable of, understand the advantages and limitations of digital video (a very big bang for your buck, shooting with amazing lenses, immediacy v. limited color and dynamic range, processing and archiving footage).
The course will start you on your way towards:
- shooting video with available light to the best effect
- learning the basics of planning your movies (shot sizes, static camera v. camera in motion)
- being able to produce good-looking content (straight from the camera or edited) that can then be shared on the internet
Requirements / recommended items for the course:
- video recording capable DSLR or mirrorless system camera
- any manual fixed focal-length lens
- a tripod if you have one
