Event Information

Unlock your camera’s potential in this fun one-day course where you will learn how to take better nature, landscape and portrait photographs. 

What will you learn on this course?

This fun and relaxed one-day course is a chance for you to enjoy learning about nature, landscape and portrait photography. 

Artist tutor Kate Green will be on hand to offer guidance and support, honing your skills and introducing new techniques to suit your individual level.

On completion of this course you will have a deeper understanding of these genres of photography and an improved confidence in the operation of your camera.

Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for young people aged 12-17 years. It is open to all students with an interest in photography.  It’s ideally suited for people with DSLR, Bridge, Compact System Cameras, Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Cameras or a compact camera for enthusiasts that has manual settings.

If you have a basic compact point and shoot camera or a phone camera but are thinking of upgrading to one of the above then we do have a limited number of DSLRs that can be borrowed during the class. However the class is not really appropriate if you just want to point and shoot using automatic settings.

The course is accessible for people of all abilities as we can provide a learning support worker, carers may assist and all classes are planned to meet the specific needs of the group. Carers must book a complimentary ticket if attending a course to provide support. The room is wheelchair accessible.

Do you need to bring anything?

Bring along your camera, a tripod if you have one and appropriate clothing for going outside and please make sure you batteries are charged and you have free memory to take lots of pictures.

Are there any additional costs?

There are no additional costs for this course.
