HOW IS THE COURSE TAUGHT?
The two day course is taught in small groups (no more than 6 people). You will learn how to capture the delightful East End (Shoreditch) the way the you see it, and perhaps more importantly how you want your audience to see it. The small numbers allow for discreet street photography and personalised tuition.
Everyone will gain something regardless of his/her specific approach or technical level. The workshop will combine concise classroom tuition and outdoor adventures, with an emphasis on putting into practice the skills gained immediately - supported by helpful guidance, care and attention.
You will carry out a number of challenges designed to exercise different techniques, practice new skills and encourage creative experimentation. Individuals will have the opportunity to pursue the ideas and techniques that most interest them with as much guidance as is required.
There will be opportunities to review the photos from the day and the time between the course days can be used for further practice with the opportunity for feedback on the second day.

BEFORE THE DAY
WHAT IS IT?
This course is for those with basic point and shoot cameras and will teach you how to get the most out of your camera and to learn how to take great photos of your life - whether it be of your kids, your holidays, parties or just a great scene you happen to walk past, we will teach you how to see the world through fresh eyes.
This course is about fun photography, split over two days - the first day is all about point and shoot cameras and discovering what we can get out of them. The second day is all about taking great photos - tips and tricks about creative ideas, composition and lighting. Taking quality photos is easy when you know how.
PRICE: The course costs £230
You will need your own digital POINT AND SHOOT camera but DO NOT need to know its basic functions and capacities. This course is suitable for beginner levels.

WHO WILL BE TEACHING THE COURSE?

"Expecting a typical, this is how to use your digital camera course, I was pleasantly surprised to find so much more including questions such as, "Why am I taking this picture?" and "Where should I position myself to make this interesting?"
