Beginners Photography Training

I offer a range of options for beginners photography training. I run workshops from my home office as well as 1 to 1 training that can be done on-location.

Beginners Photography Workshops

This workshop is perfect for beginners who own a DSLR camera but are unsure how to use it properly. We’ll cover the technical aspects of photography (in a jargon free way!), looking specifically at helping you to control aperture and shutter speed. The workshop will also cover the creative side of photography, looking at composition, light and how to take great photos of your family. We’ll have plenty of time for a practical outdoor session to try out new skills too. Tea/Coffee and light refreshments will be available.

Beginners Photography Workshop

  • Getting To Know Your Camera Get away from Auto mode

  • Practical Tips To help improve your photography


The workshop is due to begin at 10am, so please ensure that you arrive a few minutes beforehand.


What to bring

Please bring along your camera (fully charged) and case. You’ll be given a set of printed notes, so please bring along a pen too so that you can make notes. Please also ensure you have warm clothing, coats and wellies etc, as we’ll be using the space outside the village hall for the practical part of the session.
