Photo Course

Coming off auto – an introduction to photography techniques

Add a little something extra to your holiday

Coming off auto mode

Our introduction to photography course is a half day session out and about. We cover the basics of photography including shutter speed and aperture whilst out taking photos as doing is the best way to learn.

It doesn’t matter what camera you have, we can work with you to show you how to get what you need from the camera. Having manual settings is an advantage, but not necessary.

The course includes a trip out, the location of which depends on the time of year and weather, tuition with Mark, a professional photographer and time to practice your new skills.  We spend about 3 hours covering the material and practicing.

The course is jut £60 per person and can be booked with your break, you’ll find it as an optional extra during the booking process.
