Work for Us

Confidently capture the images you envision

Whether you are new to using a DSLR camera and wanting to learn the basics, keen to learn how to compose the perfect shot, or looking for an opportunity to meet others who share your passion; we have plenty of courses to pick from.

Learn to enhance your images with Photoshop

To complement our DSLR camera courses we also offer Photoshop classes providing hands-on training to help you produce professional-looking images.

All our photography courses are taught in small groups where you will be surrounded by those at a similar level to you, who share your passion, and are keen to learn. To help you grow in confidence and gain experience, many of our classes take place on location; giving you the chance to explore your style in a variety of settings. Each week you will build on your projects and techniques, working towards creating a portfolio showcasing your progress.

Take part in our exhibitions and proudly share your work

If you are new to using a DSLR and want to learn the basics of how your camera works, our Introductory courses can help.

You will learn how to shoot in manual mode and how to balance different settings. You’ll explore the work of famous photographers and learn the rules of composition.

Once you’ve mastered the basics, our Intermediate courses can help you compose and stage each shot. As you work towards the top of our courses, you will start to frame and display your prints.

You can take part in our exhibitions, creating a body of work and getting experience of preparing publicity, hosting a private view event and creating an online book.
