Our 12 module course aims to run through all the basic information you will need to know in weekly ‘bite size’ chunks. Each week we will cover technical ideas and creative thoughts, setting students an exciting practical assignment. Our objective is to replicate a physical weekly college style course using modern information technology and on-line conferencing, it will be live with your tutor and not a video. With only a small class of 8 students per course and frequent opportunities to discuss your work individually with your tutor, we hope every participant will feel supported through this process. We will also encourage support and idea sharing amongst the class, creating a rich and friendly learning environment.
The Elan Valley area of central Wales is a beautiful location for photography. Wild hillsides and wooded valleys are great for natural landscapes, but the industrial heritage of the area adds another whole dimension to the possible subjects to be found there. Between 1893 and 1954, 4 dams were constructed to hold water to supply Birmingham, 118 miles to the east. These impressive structures are a great focus for pictures and really provide something special to the overall area.
Here at Wild Arena we love our frogs and we certainly have plenty of them in our small animal team. These guys lend themselves perfectly to photography in our studio and give us plenty of opportunities for different pictures, to either help you get started with this unusual subject or to expand your portfolio with interesting and colour subjects.
Harvest Mice are one of our most popular subjects here at the studio, so we’ve decided to dedicate a whole session just to these wonderful little guys. We’ve also given them a bit of a makeover with unusual sets, which will enable you to have some truly unique Harvest Mice pictures and we’ll continue working on these ideas to keep the pictures looking fresh.
At Wild Arena we have long been fans of learning in ‘bite size’ chunks and adding a practical element can make this even better for many people.

23rd to 27th April 2022 – The Eastern border of Finland with Russia is home to the magnificent European Brown Bear. This normally shy and reclusive mammal, comparable in size to the Grizzly, roams through these beautiful forests in the search for food. It is to this quiet corner of Finland that our tour will take you in search of these magnificent mammals. 2018 will be Wild Arena’s 14th year at this amazing site and we regard it as one of Europe’s true wildlife highlights.
1st to 8th July 2022 – Our ‘Brown Bear Summer light and cubs’ trip is special not only because we are exclusively using the smaller professional grade hides but also because we are visiting at the best time of year for seeing Bears with cubs in the beautiful summer light. July usually provides the highest level of Bear visits in the season so there should be a range of opportunities of different individuals and behaviours.
Colour is such an important part of most people’s photography and we usually devote lots of energy to recording colour correctly in our cameras. However, we are often less concerned with the process of managing colour correctly through the rest of our workflow.
In this 1.5 hour live ‘zoom’ tutorial Janet will run through all the key stages of correctly controlling colour from screen calibration, image processing, colour profiles and the mysteries of home printing!
