You'll get plenty of exercises to challenge your thinking and skills, and get individual feedback to accelerate your learning.

Braedan was an excellent teacher. He is very knowledgeable and very easy going. He made it so easy to understand how to use our camera out of Automatic mode. Enjoy the time learning from him. Thanks.

Teacher was very easy to understand and explained things which I could understand.

The teacher didn't overload us with information so now ready to do another course to learn next option on my camera

Our guide Sarah was a very friendly and informative guide. It was a wonderful day, learning how to utilise the DSLR while walking in the sunshine. By the end of the session, I had confidence to use the camera's fully manual mode and get striking photos. Highly recommended.

Our class was made up of people of varying levels of photographic experience and interests, and everyone had a different camera. Sarah was able to guide each of us from the basic principles of photography through to an understanding of taking photos with the manual function on our cameras. We visited several locations to progressively work on our skills, and the group had a friendly and supportive atmosphere. This class was excellent value for money, and I recommend it for anyone wanting to understand how their camera works so that they can improve the quality of their photographs

Sarah Hender Jun 2021

The teacher patiently explained how we could find the functions on our cameras individually and would check how we each went after an exercise. The venues were perfect for the exercises chosen. Very happy. Thank you to Sarah
