After three years at university I’ve learnt more in 7 hours on Glen’s course than I did at university... It’s been a big help learning the tips and tricks of photography and I would highly recommend this course to anyone . Matt Letts

Photography Courses with Award Winning Leicester Mercury Press Photographer & College Tutor - Glen Tillyard.

As a professional press photographer, I have to get the best picture, in the shortest possible time, every time.
This is what I will teach you on every one of our 20 plus photography courses.
As a college tutor I know that every student has a different learning style so why would you choose to have photography tuition from a cheap wedding photographer or sales assistant?

Our jargon free courses are limited to six students and will suit everyone from the complete novice to the intermediate photographer.  Training takes place in the picturesque village of Smeeton Westerby in beautiful rural Leicestershire. Course run from 9-30am to 5pm and include a light lunch. They are suitable for Digital SLRs, Mirrorless EVF Cameras and Bridge or Hybrid Cameras.

The Beginners Photography Course includes a free pocket guide to landscape, portrait and action photography.

  • 5 star review  Whenever I see a friend or colleague using their expensive digital camera in auto mode I recommend Glen to them. In the space of the day I went from thinking I knew how to use my camera to really understanding the techniques behind getting some great shots. Small group sizes mean Glen has time to spend on you, a lovely location great for taking pictures and the satisfaction that you're really using your camera to the best of it's and your abilities. Would not hesitate to recommend Glen and DPC.

  • 5 star review  My wife bought me a beginner course as a birthday gift after I had bought a DSLR for our Skye holiday, where I pretty much just used the auto setting on the camera. I am now using all the settings except auto. Glen paced the course very well and established what the attendees wanted from the outset, so he had our objectives in mind when delivering the course. It was a good mix of theory and practical, putting into use what we had covered. The follow-up summary was very useful, including the advice on composition and shot selection. The after-course support is also top notch, providing a network to ensure the attendee can continue to develop and nurture their photography skills.

  • 5 star review  Having recently completed two of Glen's courses (beginner and lightroom) I can highly recommend any budding photographer to do the same. The courses are well run and at a pace and style that makes learning easy and fun. Glen has the patience of a saint and the ability to teach without feeling like you're being spoken down to or made to feel foolish in anyway. If you are looking to improve your photography, whether you're just starting out or looking to go professional this is the place to come.

  • 5 star review  Well I started with Glen say about nearly 9 or 10 years ago with a new camera. Started with the basic course & yes he got me hooked. Changed to another camera, bought more lens. Also did many more of his courses. Loved the way he taught, easy & didn’t rush you through things. I have now so much enjoyment out of my camera & no more auto settings. Thanks Glen. X. Also thanks to Jacqui for lovely lunches & warm welcome from Misty.

  • 5 star review  I have attended Beginner, Intermediate, Macro, Lightroom, Night and Advanced Night courses with Glen and each course increases your knowledge and understanding of the fascinating subject of Photography. Glens knowledge is simply astounding and covers every aspect of the subject and the workings and controls of any DSLR you could name. Information is presented at a pace that is easy to understand with no pretence or haste to move along. The beginners course alone will give you all you need to revolutionise your photography and head on out there with your camera ready to capture anything.....

  • 5 star review  I bought a DSLR camera a few years ago, and like most people, believed all I need was to leave it on 'Auto' and snap away. Feeling I need more from this investment, I sought out some tuition and hit lucky. In a relaxed environment, and a well-placed and friendly style, Glen opened my eyes to a new world. That journey continues to this day, Glen has sought me how take photographs that I am proud of. Whatever you want from a photography cause, Glen will teach you so much more. Recommended without reservation.
