Newsletter Photography Course

Newsletter Photography Course - TBA

The Pictures for Publication Course is like a mini Press Photography Course.
It is aimed at individuals and organisations who would like take creative and exciting portraits, group shots, or news pictures suitable for use in magazines, newspapers, newsletters, online resources, intranet’s or radio station websites.

It also makes a great photography team building day with positive and practical benefits where your staff can learn to take better photographs to support your organisation.

The Newsletter Photography Course can be run as a 121 or 221 over single day or as a small group course, of up to 8 students, over two days. Day one is based on the Beginners Photography Course followed by the press or newsletter photography over day two.

I was reluctant to do the beginners course, but extremely glad that I did. Even after taking photos for a lot of years it helped me to know the fundamentals and build on then. Getting off the ‘auto setting’ was crucial and gave control. The beginners course was the best money that I ever invested in photography. Jim Tyson.

Do your group shots look like a firing squad line up?

If you you are disappointed when taking pictures for use in your newsletters, school magazine, in house publications or company web sites then this Newsletter Photography Course, which will show you how to shoot great “Pictures for Publication” will be perfect for you.

Avoid The Firing Squad

The Newsletter Photography Course is based on the Pictures for Publication Course I ran for the Leicester Adult Education College. It is aimed at individuals and organisations who would like take portraits, groups, or news pictures suitable for inclusion in magazines, newspapers, newsletters, online resources, intranet’s or radio websites. This course will not turn you into a press photographer overnight but it should give you the confidence and skills required to produce photographs which will look good in your chosen publication. You will be shown how to avoid the “firing squad” type of picture that often finds it’s way into newsletters or local publications.

As a professional press photographer we needed to get the best picture in the shortest possible time and this is exactly what I plan to teach you on this exclusive course. This course is based on the excellent tuition I received as a NCTJ* Student when I started my press career.

This course was particularly good with regards to understanding the exposure triangle and I found this invaluable. It’s quite an intensive course but I feel a lot happier finding my way around the various camera settings. Now to start saving up for the next one.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Everything I wanted to know about the more advanced techniques was covered. I’m really looking forward to going out and trying what I’ve learnt, especially regarding shutter speeds combined with aperture settings.
