One Day Photography Workshops


Our "One Day Photography Workshops" are one of our most popular ways of learning. They are an excellent way of getting up to speed in a quick and thorough way. Our Complete Beginners Workshops are particularly good for people who want to learn the basics of photography and get more our of their cameras immediately. You should expect to see a drastic improvement in your photos as soon as you leave at the end of the day.

We start with the basic concepts of photography, camera settings and controls, and work up to getting you off AUTO mode and into one of the more creative Semi Auto modes instead (aperture priority and shutter priority). See the course outline below for more details. 

We also have a number of workshops that are aimed at the more experienced photographers, who want to learn a specific aspect of photography in more detail - for example Landscape photography, Portrait photography, Street & Travel or Black & White for example. For these workshops its avisable that you are already fairly confident when using semi automotic modes and have a good understanding of basic camera controls and settings. Its time to learn and explore your creativity.

  • Small Groups for concentrated and fun learning
  • Relaxed & informal atmosphere
  • Perfect for the Complete Beginner


Complete Beginners Workshop Part 1 - "The Principles Of Photography"

Length: 1 Day Workshop
Group Size: 4 max
Times: 10am - 5pm
Price: £95
Level: Beginner
What You’ll Learn: ✓ Setting up your camera
Basic camera functions & settings
✓ The Basics of Exposure
✓ Composition - creating impact.
✓ Exposure Practical session
✓ Pulling it all together to create stunning photographs

This course is ideal as an introduction to modern digital photography. It's been designed for people who are keen to develop their photography skills and learn more about the use of their digital camera, its settings and functions.

Participants will also learn more about the art of taking a photograph, what makes a photograph work or not, covering the major 'rules of photography'.

There is a balanced amount of theory and practical to maximise learning and retention - this course naturally requires us to cover the theory of taking photos before giving you time to practice what you have learned (about 65% theory and 35% practice). With our experience, we feel that this is the best way to learn as there is a lot of material we need to cover for the beginner, but at each stage we ask you to put the theory into practice using your own cameras and provide valuable feedback if things dont go to plan.



Getting to Grips with your DSLR camera Workshop

Length: 1/2 Day Workshop
Group Size: 4 max
Times: 10am - 1pm
Price: £49
Level: Complete Beginner with any DSLR camera
What You’ll Learn:

✓ Learn what dials and buttons do what
✓ Set up your camera properly and customise
the settings to suit your eyes and perferences
✓ Understand about lenses and the Flash
✓ Take control of your camera for more predictable results

✓ Learning basic techniques for holding the camera and creating more stability in difficult situations.
✓ Gain the confidence you need to make the most oout of your camera




Photography can be frustrating - and not knowing how to use your camera properly will only aggravate that frustratiuon. This short workshop focuses on the camera itself so that you gain enough confidence to make the most of your camera and current knowledge of photography.

Knowing what functions NOT to use is just as important as knowing the settings and modes that a particular scene does need, so we help to navigate you through the menu system and understand the terminology and functions of each area.

Perfect for those of you who either have a new camera, or who are unsure as to how to use their current cameras. Most cameras now-a-days dont come with a printed manual. Even if they do, they are notoriously bad at explaining what a function actually does and in what situations it should be used. If you have a manual, do feel free to bring it with you as it as we can also go through parts of it you dont understand and use it as a reference.
