If you own a DSLR would be great for you to bring it. Its assumed most of us carry our phones.

Please ensure you are familiar with the basic controls of your camera & phone.

If your not great reading manuals YouTube is a great place to see most cameras in action with guides from user/owners. IMPORTANT to remember the aim of the course is to focus on the photography and NOT get bogged down with manuals. 


We have set up an online discussion group and it’s fabulous to share images and ideas throughout the week between sessions.

There will be a computer for demonstration and  limited access to others.
