Beginner camera training (Bookings closed due to Covid-19)
This course is perfect for beginners and enthusiasts who are eager to learn the basics of their DSLR Camera in an informal setting. If you’re an amateur photographer who feels frustrated with the photos you are currently taking, but don’t know how to improve, this course is exactly what you need. Camera training is offered on location instead of in a normal classroom and incorporates the practical application of basic camera skills while actually taking photos.
This one-to-one method will allow you to learn at a pace suited to your skill level as we cover the basic theory before going out to take photos. If you’re looking to move away from “Auto” mode, and take control of your creative vision, this is the perfect setting to do so.
For beginners who feel frustrated with the photos they are currently taking, but don’t know how to improve, this course is exactly what you need.
Who is the course for?
- Beginners – no previous photography or DSLR camera experience.
- Amateurs – previous experience with a DSLR Camera but looking to get more creative with their photography.
Duration and Price
- 3-hour session (1-hour indoor theory + 2-hour outdoor practical)
- £100 one-to-one (or £170 if you bring a friend)
Camera training is held in London and the South of England. The idea is to find a coffee shop or café where we’ll go through camera setup and theory first. Once you understand the basics, we venture outdoors to practice some basic photography.
If you don’t have your own DSLR camera and lens, you can rent one from me for the duration of the session. CLICK HERE for more details
