creative workshops

From the earliest days of photography, pioneering photographers recognised the technique as a form of art. Like great paintings, great photographs are artificially constructed portrayals that must be thoughtfully composed, carefully lit and tell a story. If you’re looking to explore the artistic side of photography, please check out our wonderful variety of creative courses  below. 

Abstract photography

By looking at the world around us in a different way, and focusing on details such as textures, colours, shapes, and patterns, you can find art in everything and produce stunning images fit for a gallery.

Adobe Lightroom

Managing and post processing images can seem complicated, but no need to worry, our Adobe Lightroom Workshop will clear things up, and help give your images a real boost!

Black & White Portrait

If you have ever wanted to learn to shoot classic monochrome portraits, this is a fun and creative day! You’ll spend the day working with a professional portrait photographer and model, coming away with a set of polished and stylish photographs.

Creative Composition & Critique

There is a common belief that there are a set of prescribed “rules” relating to photography, which unfortunately can prove a hindrance to the development of emerging photographers; we believe that no art-form should be constrained in this way!
