About the Course

We will spend time exploring and working on various photographic genres and how they interact with each other; how advanced thought processes and practices apply to them all; and how these are relevant to your own specific areas of interest.

Each participant will be given individual attention. In addition to advice on shooting images, discussing workflow and editing, we will spend time with each photographer to look at where they would like to take their photography and offer advice on how to achieve this. By the end of the course, you will have taken your photographic skills to a higher level and will leave with some wonderful images and the confidence to continue to push the boundaries of your creativity. Just as importantly, you will have had fun along the way.

The course is about developing what you already know; refining and honing your skills to push the boundaries of your creativity and image creation. We will take a practical approach with the majority of the time being spent developing the skills and ideas needed to produce fabulous images from the initial idea through to your ‘hero shot’. To do this, time will be spent exploring how best to take photographic advantage of any scenario and create images regardless of the situation. Confidence, both technically and creatively, is key to enjoying and mastering photography. Developing observation skills and an understanding of light and its effects, across all genres of photography, will contribute greatly to boosting that confidence regardless of where your principal interest lies.

Course Content

The Need to Knows

The Photography Masterclass is a 2 day course, from 10am – 4pm. You will need to bring your camera with memory card, fully charged battery and USB lead if you have one.

To get the most out of the Masterclass, students will already need to know how to control aperture, shutter speed and ISO and understand how these settings interact and will have some understanding of compositional techniques. These skills are taught on our Beginner’s (Part 1), Beginner’s (Part 2) and Intermediate Photography.
