Photography Training

 Tailor made photography training to suit you and your ability level, based in South Hampshire.

We all want to take that amazing image, capture that special moment where the light is just right, everything is framed beautifully, the exposure is spot on, depth of field is perfect and the focus just where you want it to be.  For many of us, time is the issue!  Preparing and planning for such occasions is not always possible however; with some training and guidance, you can become better prepared in what to look for and become more proficient in selecting the best settings whilst learning to adapt to different situations.

So, if you are struggling to get to grips with any or all of the following on your DSLR camera: Aperture; shutter speed; ISO; focus points; white balance and histograms and are looking to move away from the ‘Green Rectangular – auto setting’ button, it’s time to consider the following.  Would you like to be better skilled in using your camera and want to become more creative with your photography and not sure how?

Then look no further!

  • Full and half day training sessions for individuals or small groups

To ensure that you achieve the maximum from your learning experience, please bring your digital cameras manual with you so that we can refer to it, should the need arise, as all manufacturers have slightly different menu settings and terminology.


Lunch time is often a perfect opportunity to discuss your progress from the mornings training and identify any issues which may need further development. Reviewing the mornings images allows us to reflect on techniques used and personalise the afternoons session in terms of what you would like to progress with or develop further.


Why not combine improving your camera skills followed up with some ‘one to one’ PhotoShop tuition for that complete beginning to end result. From taking the picture through to editing, you are sure to bring out the best from your photoshoot.


Note:  Please be aware that the full day training package price does not include entry fees required to any National Trust Properties, Tourist Attractions or venues with an entry fee including parking charges.

Full day Training sessions would require you to provide your own lunch arrangements whether that be from facilities that may be offered at a particular venue or attraction, or simply bringing your own packed lunch.
