Go Beyond Auto – Photography Course

Want to get more out of your DSLR or Mirrorless camera?


Then come and join me for a half day course in the gorgeous surroundings of Sunnyhurst Woods in Darwen! We will start with learning photography basics in the Visitors Centre before moving outside to put into everything into practice. On this course I will teach you how to use your camera in aperture priority mode with a look at full manual mode as well. We will explore what the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO mean as well as why you might want different lenses. Once outdoors I will be available to guide you and help you troubleshoot any issues while you put your new skills to the test, you will also have the opportunity to upload those images before the end of the course and review them with me.

What’s included?


You get 3.5 hours of expert guidance with a photographer with more than 20 years experience. During the course we’ll explore the elements of photography mentioned above and how to bring them together quickly to get the shots you want. Taking everything in during one session can be hard so you will have a course handbook to take away with you covering the subjects discussed during the day. As well as this you will also have support from me available after the course via email for up to 1 month, ask any questions you have, get in touch to troubleshoot, and share your images with me for feedback. To keep the course informal and friendly, as well as making sure you get the most out of it, the maximum number of particpants per course will be 8. You will find a supportive environment in which you can ask any questions you have with confidence. I strongly believe you learn better when you’re comfortable so you’ll also get hot/cold drinks and simple snacks included!
