Beginner Photography Course In Beautiful Argyll

As a professional photographer, I am often asked how to get started with photography.  This photography course for beginners could be the answer you are looking for.

I have been a professional photographer for over 10-years, I have a Master’s Degree in Photography from Arts University Bournemouth, and I have over 20 years experience as an adult educator.

I am a former police officer who led the team that designed and wrote the entire training program for recruits to Dorset Police.  I and my team were commended by the Home Office and by our Chief Constable for the quality of the training we designed.

A Photography Course For Individuals Or Small Groups

The training will be delivered at my home in Toward, near Dunoon in beautiful Argyll.  The course will be adapted to meet the specific needs of the individual or group but it will cover a number of fundamental principles.  We will cover:

  • The character and nature of light
  • The hierarchy of light
  • Basic camera settings
  • White balance and ISO
  • Camera modes and when to use them
  • Exposure compensation
  • The properties of the most common lenses and when to use them

Once the participants have got to grips with those fundamental principles we will move on to putting the principles into action. We will spend some time taking photographs around the locality and then wrap up the day by looking at your photographs and discussing what worked well and what could be improved.

Photography Course Material

All participants will receive a handout containing all the information needed to refresh your memory on the topics we discussed.
