Beginners Photography Course

Get Confidence Off Auto!

About the Beginners Photography Course

My beginners photography courses are the best first step to gaining ‘off auto’ camera confidence. Especially if you want to push yourself to control your camera and create stronger images.


Create visually strong photos as the course progresses with tips and advice on different aspects of creative photography. Covering all the technical and creative basics you will need to start confidently using your camera on manual. My Beginners Photography Course runs over five mornings or evenings and a Saturday morning location walk, giving you the opportunity to visit a beautiful Kent location to practice your skills to finish the course.


Taught from a creative venue in the centre of Faversham, each week, time will be spent inside and/or outside, therefore, giving you a great opportunity to spend time photographing in an inspiring location.

A creative project will be running throughout the duration, giving you focus and direction as you learn your new skills. Learning with a like minded group in a relaxed and fun environment.
