Photography Courses

Online Photography Course

 

 

My Online and Face to Face courses are suitable for both beginners and those who want to improve their photography with both DSLR and mobile phone cameras.  Each session I will give a talk/demonstration on the weeks topic which will include a Fact sheet and lesson booklet to help guide you to completing a weekly set task.

The online courses will involve a weekly live talk via zoom which is recorded for you to refer back to.  You will be sent a lesson booklet with notes and a practical exercise.  Throughout the week you can contact me for help and feedback.  This is done via a private Facebook group or WhatsApp/email if you are not on social media.

 

The Face to Face sessions will be held in various suitable locations in Strood & Rochester depending on subject matter and weather conditions.  Group sessions will be no more than 5 participants.  Each week I will give you a demonstration after which you will be given a lesson booklet with a set of tasks to complete.
