Levels 1 & 2 Beginners Photography Courses

Courses held just outside Braintree, Essex, with free parking

Learn how to master your DSLR camera and start taking great photographs of family, friends, holidays and all the other special moments in your life

Whether you’ve just got your first digital SLR camera of you’ve had one for a few years then our beginner’s photography courses ideal for you. You will get you away from the fully auto settings, you will gain more confidence and have the skills to take photographs that you will be proud of.

What do you mean Digital Photography Demystified?

We all know how confusing the user’s manual can be, which is why it’s so easy just to put the camera to fully auto. I will personally show you just how easy it can be to take great photos.
You will need a digital SLR camera (available for hire at £15 per day), fully charged battery, and a memory card.
