Travel Photography Course
The Art of Travel Photography is a fantastic course if you’re keen to learn how to take great photographs during your holidays and travels.
Most of us cannot imagine going on a trip out of town, let alone an exotic holiday without taking a camera. Photographs not only allow us to share our travel experiences with others, but they help us remember where we were and how we felt. Without photographs all those breathtaking views, magical places and joyful moments would be gone forever, impossible to reproduce.
Yet all too often, we find that our photos fall short of our expectations. They may look fine on a small camera preview screen, but back home we find them blurry, over flashy or just plain boring. To make matters worse, we may never return to the place again.
If this has happened to you, if you feel disappointed with your photography and would like to improve your skills – then this course is for you.
By understanding some basic photographic principles and best practices, you will not only develop your photographer’s eye but will start using your camera more creatively and produce pictures you will be proud of.
This course will transform the way you think about and take photographs during your travels.
After having owned my Nikon D3200 for a year I felt it was time to really learn about what the camera could do. I’d heard about ISO, aperture, f stops and the rest but didn’t really appreciate what any of these terms meant or how it would impact taking a picture.
I attended the course down in Wimbledon and was so impressed, I’ll be looking to book myself on the intermediate. Our tutor was both knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and the amount I walked away with was immense.
I’m now genuinely looking forward to my next trip away – I’ll be able to take some proper photos and finally use the manual setting on my camera! Would highly recommend.

I’ve had my camera for a few years, and I’m beginning a long trip very soon so I came on a course to learn how to use my camera during my travels. All the activities were really beneficial and I learnt how to take photos on a manual setting, and developed much better understanding of my camera. Expectations fully met. Would recommend!
