About the lesson

The aim of my photography courses is for students to explore their creativity through the world of the visual language. At the same time, students learn about lighting, composition and how to get the best from their cameras. They develop confidence in learning new skills, through theoretical and practical sessions, working on location, in the studio and darkroom. The tutor makes theory interesting and taking photographs fun. Students learn and practise in small groups and on a one-to-one level.
