Our Introductory 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 boasts an extensive series of Victorian dams and structures built by the Birmingham Water Corporation in the late 1800’s. Over 9 years between 1893 and 1904 a series of dams and supporting structures were constructed in this remote area to supply the expanding population of industrial Birmingham with its increasing water needs. The legacies of this impressive feat of engineering add impact to the dramatic landscape images we hope to capture on this session.

2nd to 9th July 2021 – 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.
Our ‘Getting Started with Digital SLR cameras’ sessions are simple, 3 hour events designed to cover a basic overview of key D-SLR operation. Using simple language and practical examples we will encourage guests to start taking control of certain camera features to deliver more predictable, better quality results. We will also have time to actually put these concepts into practice with your individual camera. We believe learning with ‘bite size’ chunks in this way, really helps those new to photography get started more comfortably.
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.
