Beginners in Digital Photography

Visit our blog here

The ‘Beginners in Digital Photography’ classes have been very successful in enabling camera owners to understand and master their cameras. 

You might be someone who has a small compact camera gathering dust on the shelf, or someone who has been fumbling with it at family events and holidays. 

Or you could be the enthusiast with an SLR who loves to take pictures for pictures sake!  

Whether you are a complete beginner or a ‘fumbling’ but enthusiastic camera owner, these classes are designed to help with all aspects of the digital scene. 

Past students report such things as ‘fear of pressing the wrong buttons or looking through the menus has gone’ and ‘I found the classes enjoyable and excellent’. 

Computer work is also a necessary aspect of the digital age, but in this we are very gentle on beginners whilst giving more of a challenge to any student who wants it. 

The course runs for 8 weeks and a field trip and sessions on portraits, close up and night photography are just some of what’s included in our informative yet ‘made easy’ curriculum.     

The classes are written and run by experienced photographer Amanda Burke. 

Amanda has been a photographer since 1978 gaining a vast diversity of experience and acquiring a wealth of technical and artistic knowledge in the field. Past students have reported ‘I especially liked your ability to “de-jargon” things’ and ‘Your generosity and helpfulness as a teacher are, in my experience, very rare’.
