Courses/ Teaching/ Workshops

I am a qualified photography tutor and have been teaching adult photography classes at colleges and other locations for around 20 years.

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

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

Practical Photographic Techniques
The course will be run from the premises of the Quorn Parish Council Offices:

The Old School,
School Lane,
LE12 8BL

There are some roadside car parking spaces outside, but the village carpark is located very close.

The dates for the course for 2024/2025 are:

  • Autumn = 8 weeks - 23rd September 2024 to 18th November 2024 - Cost £72 - Registration from end of June 2024

  • Spring = 10 weeks - 13th January 2025 to 24th March 2025 - Cost £90 - Registration from end of June 2024

You must have your own SLR or bridge camera and know the basics of using it.
Please note that the course is NOT suitable for compact or phone 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 maybe three of the lessons taught outside, on a Sunday which replace the Monday night lesson; this will be weather dependent.

This is a very sociable course. You will gain 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 course, 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). A tripod and a cable release are useful. Bring re-charged batteries for your camera and bring a memory card with plenty of space.

If you are unsure of any areas of your camera, it is useful if you can bring your camera manual.
