Budding photographers can learn the tenets of the medium during a beginners course (usually £90). The session runs from 10am to 4pm, kicking off with a briefing on camera features, before moving onto location shooting and downloading images to a computer. More advanced lens-wielders can embark on the intermediate course, which can be taken over one (£125) or two (£225) days. The one-day option covers composition and perspective, as well as the use of RAW files and natural light. The two-day course tackles subject interaction, the digital darkroom and editing. All photographers can show off their newly honed visual abilities with a 12” x 8” print to keep.
