These One Day Digital SLR Photography Courses are limited to six students and will suit anyone from the complete beginner to the intermediate DSLR photographer.

Many novice photographers tend to use their expensive Digital camera on the fully auto setting and are often unimpressed by the average results this achieves. This one day photography course will will explain when to use all the other settings and show you how to take stunning photographs you will be proud to hang on your wall.

Suitable for complete novice
All our Digital SLR photography courses start off with the absolute basics and progress, step by step, through to some of the more technical aspects. Each camera operation or photography lesson is followed by a demonstration then a practical session.

After the camera and outdoor practical photography sessions we review the images and offer constructive feedback. This is followed by photo-editing tutorial where we will show you how to get the very best from your your photographs. You can see picture from previous photography course students here

Student Testimonials

A really wonderful photography course with excellent one to one tuition. I feel much more confident using my camera & I'm very pleased with all my photographs.

Many Thanks
Karen Kirk


This course covered much more than I expected but it wasn't rushed. Glen has a relaxed teaching style and if your not sure about anything he's patient and happy to re-track until you understand.

This camera course made everything simple to understand and it makes you want to take the camera with you everywhere. I will look at landscape scenes from a totally different perspective now.

Norman Plummer

This Photography course offered the perfect mix of theory and practical photography. It's a brilliant way to learn how to take perfect pictures. I would definitely recommend any amateurs wanting to learn how to use their cameras properly.

I thoroughly enjoyed the day and after four years of owning a digital camera I've learned more in one day than I had in the previous four years put together. At last I understand what I'm doing and I look forward to taking much better photographs.

My Memory

A fantastic day. I've learnt so much. Thank you Glen. I'll definitely be returning to do other courses as you explain everything in such a clear way. Really enjoyable. I really enjoyed the lunch too.
