About the Course

The word photography was created from Greek words effectively meaning “Drawing with light” and with flashguns this becomes more relevant than ever. Being able to manipulate and control the light as you desire to create your image opens a whole word of photographic opportunity.

On the day we will talk you through how a flashgun works with your camera, the various modes in which it can operate and some of the more advanced features and settings available. This will include use of high-speed, front and rear curtain sync and some basic modifiers allowing you to leave the day feeling confident with your equipment or making a future purchase.

The course will be a mixture of theory, demonstration and most importantly – practical experience! We aim to work both inside and outside the training room to give you as much variety as possible.

Camera Equipment

Please bring a DSLR or mirrorless camera, and it is recommended you bring your own flashgun (advice available on contact). Limited range of equipment available for loan on the day – please let us know if you wish to borrow so we can check compatibility.

About the Tutor

James has been working in training full time for over a decade and in 2018 took on a role managing ProHides – a wildlife photography project on an organic farm in Wiltshire. Previously James had been responsible for the development of courses and tutors at Jessops Academy photography school and helped thousands of customers from beginner level up to the working professional to get more out of their equipment.

Because of his career, there’s not much that James hasn’t photographed! He’s been fortunate enough to travel in pursuit of wildlife and sports opportunities as well as photographing events and commercial work in the UK. Nowadays it’s not unusual to find him tracking down wildlife or working on a new camera trap on the organic farm where he works.

In terms of equipment, James has had extensive hands on experience with pretty much all brands – he currently shoots on a mixture of Sony and Canon equipment and strongly believes that 3rd party equipment should never be underestimated.
