Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

This course is a mixture of classroom-based tutorials, practical demonstrations and hands on practice with your own camera. The course will be run in our school of photography in the heart of Lacock – (Photography was invented in Lacock Abbey!).

In the afternoon of the  beginners digital photography course you will go out about in Lacock village with Fiona, the tutor, to practice and receive some one to one coaching.

All our courses are run in our own purpose built training studio, after the photo-shoot you will return to ‘The Old Clubhouse’ to download and review your images in Photoshop Elements. We limit the course to a maximum of 6 students to enable the tutor to help everyone individually.
