Digital photography has made taking photographs accessible for everyone, most mobile phones take good photographs and the range of cameras currently on the market means that there is one suitable for most budgets.
Its very easy to use the automatic settings on the camera and get nice photographs, but the advanced functions on the camera that would enable you to take a superb photograph remain a mystery for many people.
If you would like to learn more about your camera, how you can make it work for you, then attending a workshop is often the best means to attain this knowledge and understanding. A few hours of hands on tuition can help you on the way to not only understanding the settings and mysterious terms like "histogram", but making them work for you.
I find that the courses work better in small groups of up to 4 people, but I am equally happy to offer 1:1 tuition. Each workshop is tailored to suit individual requirements and cover the aspect of photography that interests you most. The course can run from my home or from your own home (25 mile radius) whichever suits you best.
Workshops can be for a full day, but generally I find that 3 to 4 hours is enough. The package I offer is £75 for the first 3 hours and £15 per hour for any extra time you would like on the day.
Below are some comments from previous customers:
"As it was such a lovely late summers day your suggestion of walking through the streets of Brough, then into the surrounding countryside and castle allowed you to show me how to create better pictures by thinking about perspective, light, depth of field, apertures, use of colours, shutter speed, etc. All the things that before your workshop were somewhat of a mystery to me, but by the end of our session, I had a greater understanding and appreciation of such matters when taking a photograph."
"At the end of the workshop I felt more confident and certainly had a far greater understanding of my DLSR which I’m sure will prove invaluable in the future. I shall certainly recommend your workshop to my friends and family and am happy to record my experience on your website to future customers."
