Beginners Photography Workshop


I’m currently revamping my business, having shifted to part-time photography. For the time being I’ll be focusing on providing "One to One" sessions, commercial commisions and publishing more photography books and photo 'zines'. As such, no further group courses are scheduled at this time. Thanks, Rod.



Is this course for me?

This full day for Photography beginners focuses on both the creative and technical essentials to kick-start your photography, helping you create better images. The workshops take place in the world class surroundings of the Lake District - a landscape photography Mecca. Learning as part of a group can be fun and it's also great value for money with a day course starting from only £89.

If you're new to digital photography or looking to make the most of that fancy camera you bought a while back but never got around to reading the instruction book! The emphasis is on learning skills, not covering numerous locations.
