New Photography Masterclass Series

I am pleased to announce that I am extending the photography masterclass series to 9 different topics.  The one-off, bite sized, classes are designed for those who need a refresher or a more in-depth understanding of specific areas of photography.

Photography Masterclass Series

These photography classes are bite-sized lessons on specific topics.  They range between two and three hours and run on an ongoing 8 week cycle.  Classes will held in one of three locations, Kenilworth, Coventry or Solihull, depending on the demand.

They suitable for any level of photographer but it is advised that you attend in the order listed or at least have a good understanding of the first modules before going onto complete the more specialised classes.  

These are the perfect refresher class and are also suitable for anyone who has already attended a photography course with myself as each class contains new material and we are able to get more in-depth on specific topics and brush up on your areas of understanding.

Each class is approximate 2-3hrs and runs on a weekday evening on a rolling 10-12 week basis. Locations for the classes will be set based on the preferences of those booking so the dates, days and locations listed may be subject to change to suit who has booked.
