I have been a wedding and lifestyle photographer for 7 years now and I would love to pass down some of my knowledge in photography to help you bring it into your daily lives and capture all the precious moments that go by so quickly!
Every day I am told ‘your job is easy’ ‘all you do is point and click’ ‘anyone can take a good photograph with today’s technology’
This is SO far from the truth. Sometimes blood, sweat and tears can go into creating the one perfect photograph (My photography friends will defiantly agree with this!)
Photography is an art and a skill. It is seeing a moment and having all the skills to capture that precious moment in all its perfectness (If thats even a word- I make a lot up!)
Anyone can take a photo with todays technology- but to take a good photograph you have to see and feel the moment first- then bring in your skill to create the correct lighting and composition for the situation.
This beginners course will teach you all about lighting, lenses and composition.
For this course, you will NEED a DSLR camera.
This course is a basic photography course. Once doing each of the modules you will need to go away and practice what you have learnt. I also recommend after every module you watch you tube videos and do your own extra research into what you have learnt. Everyone has different ways of learning and you need to adapt this course into the best way that suits your learning.
Each module can be played once a week & then practice what you have learnt before moving onto the next. Or some people may prefer to watch them all at once & then break them down and practice what they have learnt. This is a very hands on course. You need to do the homework (get out and practice) in order to succeed 🙂

DON’T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT, SEE WHAT MY CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY…
I am always reluctant to join online courses, but this was simple to understand, clear and very informative. Not only have I have learnt the basics to take great photographs of my children, I have also found it useful for my events I hold at work and have had lots of fun learning and creating memories along the way!Sarah-Jane Stapleton
