Our popular one day workshops are designed to help you get more out of your fancy camera, while igniting your creativity. These inspiring classes teach you the basics of photography from a creative perspective, teaching you methods of visual storytelling, technical know-how, and giving you plenty of opportunities to practice your skills while we’re on hand to help and guide you.
Class sizes are kept deliberately small to ensure that you feel comfortable and confident in your learning environment, and that you have the opportunity to get the individual attention that you need, so that you can get the very most out of your experience. This year, the workshops are being held in the beautiful Manor House School in Bookham, providing stunning visual stimuli, both in the classroom and outside in the grounds, where we conduct our practical sessions. Each workshop includes a tasty lunch and refreshments throughout the day, helpful notes, plus plenty of laughter and fun! All you need to bring is your DSLR camera, a fully charged battery, and a clean memory card.
You can choose between two workshops, depending on your ability and needs:
Photo Basics is designed for those who are using their DSLR camera in Auto, generally they’ll be getting a few good photos, but not anywhere near as many as they would hope, and feel like they are missing opportunities because of their capability with the camera. Often our attendees describe themselves as absolute beginners; they are sometimes nervous about their lack of capability when they start the class, but soon realise that they are well placed with their classmates and without fail, they leave the class feeling much more confident with their cameras.

Beyond the Basics is the ideal workshop for those who are ready to take their photography to the next level. Attendees have previously attended our Photo Basics workshop or another similar course, or they are keen amateurs with a bit more experience under their belts. They feel confident using their cameras in Aperture Priority and are ready to start taking some more control over their images. Find out more and book your place here.
