Taking pictures but struggling to understand why you’re not getting what you want? Your owner’s manual reads like a foreign textbook?

Learn photographic terminology which will give meaning to terms such as


– shutter speed
– aperture
– white balance
– depth of field
– focal length
– jpeg and raw files, resolution
– and more…

With definitions understood, the course moves around each of these technical terms and employs practical exercises to explore the successful use of them.

This course runs during term-time over 4 weeks, and during the summer we find one-day courses work best for schedules. In a day, or over 4 half-day weekly sessions, you will know where to find and how to use your camera’s settings for creative effect.
And you will have a collection of your own short photography projects to prove it!

We so often hear “I wish I’d come to you before I went to ….” We train you, encourage you to experiment and learn, and ensure you remember by doing. So you can forget the out of focus, blurry shots and instead get images you can really treasure forever.

Training because you got a new camera? Off in December on safari, or you just want to be able to take better pictures of family and friends. Join us and quickly and effectively make sure you really know how to get the most from your camera.

Location: Week 1 at our Covent Garden location; Weeks 2, 3, 4 central London locations near to easily accessible tubes and to be decided together in the group in Week 1, based on common interests.
