These regular weekly classes are for all ability levels and are tailored to the needs and talent level of its students. The content has a very heavy emphasis on practical work as this is by far the best way to learn a skill like photography! We regularly take field trips as well as arrange studio sessions so that students can experience a wide variety of styles of photography. I like to set weekly targets and projects to challenge my students and encourage them to think creatively. We also visit exhibitions of other photographers work.

To give you an idea of what to expect from the course, in Term 1 we look at camera controls;- get away from using Auto, discover what you can make your camera do, and what all the controls mean.
Composition;- how to produce photographs thay people will want to look at more than once.
Saving and storing your images, including different formats and why they are important. Basic image manipulation; resizing, levelling and correcting convergence.
