♥♥♥♥♥ Tricia – Great to have an expert on hand after each shot so I learned a lot. It was also good to have some photoshoot advice in the afternoon to enhance the photos I had taken.
♥♥♥♥♥ Graham – This really helped me put everything together in a way that built my confidence and ability at the same time. I had done a beginners course and understood the principles but couldn’t get my head around applying them in a practical sense – the photoshoot sorted that out in an pressurised situation. Just what i needed – thank you!
♥♥♥♥♥ Bill – Great day , lots of help and guidance. Thank you
ONE DAY COURSE 9:30AM – 4:30PM
Maximum 3 students per photoshoot
Our one day photoshoot is designed to build students’ confidence and ability to apply their knowledge in a real life environment. Led by the Tutor, Fiona Turnbull, a maximum of 3 students will strengthen their existing knowledge and learn how to put what they already know into practice!
Bradford on Avon provides the perfect setting for all types of photography; including townscapes, waterscapes, portrait and documentary styles. The technical and compositional aspects of photography will be explored, according to each students’ requirements.
This day is about confidence building and producing well exposed and composed shots in a practical situation. You may have been on a beginners photography course but can’t quite get your head around how to apply your knowledge in a practical situation, or alternatively you may just want to experiment with your own personal style under the guidance of an expert.
Following the photoshoot in Bradford on Avon, on returning to Lacock Photography’s gallery in Lacock, Fiona will guide students through the process of loading images onto our computers (bring you own laptop if you want!) and selecting and processing the images in either Photoshop Elements or Adobe Lightroom.
It’s a fun day out in a beautiful town, brimming with stunning views and lovely people!
“….a pressure free, non judgemental environment….”
The day starts at Lacock Photography’s gallery with a short recap of the basics, briefing and camera set up session. Fiona will then accompany the maximum of 3 students on a guided photoshoot in Bradford on Avon. With such a small number of students, you are guaranteed individual attention in a pressure free, non judgemental environment to allow you to apply, build and apply skills in a direction that suits your personal style.
“….preparing for an upcoming holiday, family occasion…..”
Bradford on Avon offers the opportunity to explore a variety of genres of photography, so whether you are preparing for an upcoming holiday, family occasion or life in general this photoshoot provides the perfect situation to experiment and develop your style under the guidance of an expert.

The Tutor – Fiona Turnbull
Fiona has been in love with photography since her very early days growing up in Glasgow. Fiona clearly remembers her first camera, a Kodak Instamatic and how great it felt when she bought an Olympus Trip when she was 16! Fiona has developed her skills through self-study, attending courses at local colleges & training providers – alongside lots of practice and deletion of images!
In 2011, Fiona and her husband Andy set up a new photography business located in Lacock, the “Birthplace of Photography”. One of the few photography training schools to own its own purpose-built premises, the business has grown year on year to become one of the UK’s leading providers of photography training. Fiona is an experienced tutor who specialises in developing and encouraging students who are at the start of their photographic journey.
Fiona has a wide range of photographic interests and is particularly keen on people, animals, flowers and nature photography. In addition to delivering photography training, Fiona regularly presents external talks on compositional techniques & a variety of photography genres.
