Intensive Beginners Photography Course
Our Intensive Photography Course for beginners explains the science and art of photography from the ground up with almost constant hands-on activities. It will get you familiar with your digital camera like the DSLR, Mirrorless system or Bridge, in no time and allow you to start taking real control over your photography.
The course is suitable for everyone from the complete novice who has virtually zero experience and knowledge of photography to those who have owned a digital camera for a while but are still struggling to get off the automatic programmes and need that vital kick-start to help them understand the fundamentals and get their creative photography underway.
Choose this course if you’d like more extended opportunities for hands-on practice, feedback, and a firmer, more rounded grasp and understanding of your camera.
Hi Everyone, our photography studio is open again and we are delivering in-person courses as well as 1to1 tuitions.
