Courses/ Teaching/ Workshops

I am a qualified photography tutor and have been teaching adult photography classes at colleges and other locations for over 10 years.

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

I am currently taking bookings for the following course, which will be run on Tuesday evenings 7pm-9pm:

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

This is a 2 term course which will run in the autumn and spring 2018/2019 terms. There is already interest in this course, so if you are interested in enrolling, please do contact me soon.
  • Autumn = 10 weeks - 25th September 2018 to 4th December 2018 - Cost £75 - This term is now full.
  • Spring = 10 weeks - 15th January 2019 to 26th March 2019 - Cost £75 - This term is now full.

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 or three 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 (SLR or bridge). A tripod and a cable release is useful. Bring re-charged batteries for your camera, and if using a digital camera, bring a memory card with plenty of space. If you use a film camera, a colour ISO 100 speed will be a good choice. If you are unsure of any areas of your camera, it’s useful if you can bring your camera manual.
