These courses are both being held in the village of Tansley, near Matlock, Derbyshire

To make sure that everyone coming on these courses gets plenty of individual attention, they are each limited to a maximum of 6 places, costing £90.00 each. Please contact us if you would like to be emailed a booking form for these or any of our other courses.

These one day courses are ideal for anyone who is new to digital photography, or who has been using their camera in the “all-auto” mode up to now. It doesn’t matter what make or type of camera you have – whether it is a compact “point and shoot”, a prosumer, bridge or mirrorless camera, or a digital slr – on these courses you will learn about the basic controls and settings that will help you get better, more creative photos.

Everyone attending will receive a printed sheet listing the most important settings on their particular make and model of camera, what they do and – most importantly – exactly how to set them.
