Our Current 1 day & residential Photo Courses

Course locations change each year so do check the website to see what is on offer. With each course led personally by Chris your day/course will cover the whole photographic process. We will spend time developing focus techniques, how to use aperture control, balancing exposures, using filters, considering the compositional process etc. You will learn/improve as part of a small group in a friendly and fun environment. Chris will spend lots of time with each participant to help them get the most from the course. The courses are suited to all as Chris will work with each client individually.

We have some LEE FILTERS and a couple of Manfrotto Tripods that we can loan out, please ask for info on these if interested.

1 Day Courses:
Chris will teach how to focus, control aperture, handle exposure, use of filters to control the light, understanding the histogram etc... and how to compose an image from the scene before you. Look out for our NEW 'Sunset & Blue Hour' special days in the darker months!!

3/4/7 Day courses:
These will include all of the above plus Chris' popular overviews on RAW file processing and Photoshop editing techniques. These courses also allow more time to work on creative techniques such as long exposures, photo stitching, HDR etc. On these courses you will stay in your own room with facilities, with breakfast and dinner often included (except Venice course)

A few words from one of our customers:
I’ve been on three of Chris’s courses now: a one day course in the Yorkshire Dales, a three day residential course in the Lake District, and a truly wonderful seven day photographic tour of the Isle of Skye.
With each course, he built on previous experience and knowledge. A very patient teacher, Chris took us through the whole photographic process, from setting up our camera equipment (including the use of filters), through all aspects of image composition and capture right through to editing our masterpieces in Lightroom.  Chris spent the considerable time ensuring that we understood everything, happily answering questions on any aspect needing clarification. Small group numbers were an enormous benefit, and often it felt like having 1:1 tuition, unlike other courses. All three courses were packed full of opportunities to learn, and looking back I am amazed at what we fitted in and delighted with the results achieved, both on the courses and also afterwards. After each course I came away inspired to take better photographs, and I look forward to attending more courses in the future.
And before I forget - it was all great fun too! (G Reynolds, Lincoln)
