Courses/ Teaching/ Workshops

I am a qualified photography tutor and have been teaching adult photography classes at colleges and other locations for over 15 years.

I offer one to one teaching in camera skills, portraiture, photographic techniques and Adobe Photoshop skills.

I usually start taking bookings in July for the following course, which would be run on Tuesday evenings 7pm-9pm:

Practical Photographic Techniques
The course will be run from:
Rawlins Academy
Loughborough Road
LE12 8DY

However, with Covid-19 I will not be running a course in the autumn term 2020. I will review the situation in November/ December with a view to running the course in Spring 2021.
If you would like to be kept informed of courses, please email me and I will add you to my mailing list.
  • Autumn = 10 weeks - This term the course is not running.
  • Spring = 10 weeks - Unfortunately due to Corvid19, this term the course is not running.

You must have your own SLR or bridge camera and know the basics of using it. The course is NOT suitable for compact cameras.

A different photographic topic is taught each week e.g. portraiture (outside and studio based), landscapes, nature, close up, creative, architecture, advertising, historic methods, night time, sport, plus many, many more.
Within each of these categories, topics are further explored.

On this course you will learn a wide range of photographic techniques and have the opportunity to try topics you may never have considered before.

Each term (2 in total) there will be two of the lessons taught outside, on a Sunday which replace the Tuesday night lesson; this will be weather dependent.

This is a very sociable course. You will gain total confidence in using your camera in a wide variety of situations. If you are looking to purchase camera equipment, you will get a lot of advice on this course.

For every week of the session, I provide hand-outs covering the topic taught for that week.

None really, though depending on locations for Sunday sessions there may be car park charges.

For each class you will need a camera (DSLR or bridge), tripod and cable release. Bring re-charged batteries for your camera, and a memory card with plenty of space available. If you are unsure of any areas of your camera, it’s useful if you can bring your camera manual too.
