121 Photography Courses

121 Photography Private Tuition - £350 or 221 Tuition £250 pp. Half Day 121 - £200

Have you ever wondered how professional photographers get better pictures than everyone else? Well now’s your chance to work alongside a professional photographer and learn the tricks of the trade from an NCTJ qualified press photographer and college tutor.

121 Private Photography Tuition is just you, me and your camera. We can cover a range of topics, or concentrate on one course, and you can ask me as many questions as you like. If you would like to benefit from my vast experience, and see how a professional photographer works, then 1-2-1 private tuition photography day could be best for you.

All our group photography courses have a maximum of six students but we do understand that some people prefer 121 Photography Tuition. If you’re someone who likes to ask a lot of questions, or maybe likes to work at a slightly slower pace, then maybe 121 photography course is a better option for you. Private Tuition days are £350 during the week and £500 at the weekend.

The 121 photography days are also better if you want to spend more time on a certain type of photography or it may be possible to mix and match to some extent – maybe a combined Lightroom and Photoshop tuition day. Training runs 9.30am to 5pm.

Most 121 courses are available during the week with the exception of the Bird and the Big Cat Courses which are always group courses at the weekend.

Book a 121 Photography Course

Please note that I can usually fit in the 121 Photography Courses within a few days or a week or two, subject to availability, but it might take longer to find a date to suit me and a second person for a 221 photography day. If you have limited time or want a course quick then 121 would be a better option.

Please contact me before booking a private tuition day so we can confirm dates first. Most 121 days are Monday to Friday as I have very limited weekends due to group courses and professional commitments.

121 Gift Voucher as these are valid for 12 months. Please drop me an email with the occasion and a personal message.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course.  It was definitely of benefit to me having the 1 to 1 tuition. I look forward to practising the techniques. Nick Ward

5 Day or 3 Day Intensive 121 Courses

This option is great if you would like to learn a lot quickly.

The 5 Day option allows student to choose any six* photography courses from a selection of 12 available courses. These are run on a private tuition basis over five days. It can be taken as one day a week, over five weeks, or as a five day block. This option is useful if you are not local and want to stay locally at a hotel. Be warned this is tiring as there is a lot to take in.

* During the winter this includes a free Night Photography Course or a free Macro Photography Course during the Summer.

Think of this as a crash course in a wide variety of photographic techniques which you can hone during a one week holiday or over five weeks. There’s also a saving of £450 over paying for the six courses individually.

There is also a 3 Day option for £1000 which does not include the free course. This is a saving of £50 on the indiviual pricing.

You can find more details of the 3 and 5 Day Courses here

Previous providers of these courses have spent far too much time on unnecessary camera settings and constant adjustments. This course is so much more practical and I learnt a huge amount.  I would highly recommend anyone interested in photography to get on one of these courses and you will surprise yourself how quickly your photographs improve. A great tutor who delivered the course content in an easy to understand and relaxed manner. Ian Cadwallader

221 Photography Courses £250 each

A very popular alternative to our 121 Photography Private Tuition days are our 221 Photography Courses. At £250 per person these are a great way to share the cost but still get private photography tuition. You can attend with a friend or I can try and find a second person to join you on a course through our amazing Facebook Group. Just like the 121 days you can choose a specific course or mix and match.

I usually run group courses, with six students, at the weekends but I can sometimes fit it a 121 or 221 day, subject to availability, on a Saturday or Sunday. 221 days during the week £250 per person but occasionally I will run a weekend 221 at £300 per person subject to availability. 121 Private Tuition at a weekend is £500

I attended the 121 Beginner’s Course with Glen at the end of February and was a little skeptical that I would really come away understanding all those areas he listed under course content – surely I would never learn all those things, in one day? But wow, I was very, very impressed. Glen is a great photographer, and a great teacher – the two don’t always go hand in hand. I haven’t been on Auto since and now for the first time in seriously years, I feel I know my camera and at last can enjoy taking it out!

Needless to say, I’ve since booked the 4-course-package deal and can’t wait to learn more. If in doubt, book your course now – you can only regret what you don’t do rather than what you do!  Liz Staveley

I’ve really enjoyed this course and I look forward to putting it into practice. I’m not scared to use my camera anymore. Glen explained everything very well – even to such a non technical person like myself. Julia

I knew some of the technical side of photography, having had a camera for a while, but I wanted to know about composition and how to frame a photograph. I’ve had an excellent day and learnt a lot. It will certainly make a difference to my photography. Les B.

This day has made me so much more aware of the points I need to think about when taking pictures. The theory was well explained with a good combination of techniques , examples and trouble shooting tips. The course maintained a good pace with just the right amount of information and practical exercises. Carol B

Hi Glen.
I’m just dropping you this note to say how much I enjoyed today. The course answered all my questions and has given me the confidence to go out and use my camera properly. Today has turned my box of expensive gadgets into top class photography equipment. Thanks! Barry C.
