  • Is this course for you?

    The course is designed around a photographer’s toolkit. The toolkit will enable you to use the camera in the manual mode rather than on automatic. This will allow you to have full control of the camera and will allow you to get creative with your images. Through homework assignments, which will allow you to practice the techniques taught, in your own time, knowledge of how to use the basic principles of the art of photography will evolve your photographic practice. Included in each lesson will be informal group discussions and critiques about the photographs taken as part of each homework brief.

  • Required qualifications

    No qualification required just a keen interest in photography.

  • What skills will I develop?
