Beginner's Guide to Photography
"I have used Canon DSLR now for a number of years, and have attended evening courses which covered a lot of theory and homework.
But when I’m out on the field – it’s still like – what setting do I use - particularly in harsh light?
So to cover myself I take various shots in manual settings, then an auto shot (if there’s time) just to make sure!
I have travelled widely and love taking my camera, but if I’m with my husband, he’s more often than not wandered way ahead of me!
So I decided if I want to get the best out of my camera for my next trip I need to find someone who can actually show me what settings to use and take the guesswork out of what I’m trying to do!
With Dave in just [a few] hours my photography skills were taken to the next level!
Dave taught me how to quickly take photos without having to resort to Auto mode, with plenty of opportunities to practice, panning, long exposure, aperture priority and line up great shots.
I will be heading to Australia in a couple of weeks’ time feeling more confident about my abilities"

The Beginners workshop will have you up to speed on the basics of how your camera works, and more importantly, how you can take control of your camera to get the pictures you want.

This is a non-intimidating, fun and practical workshop where you will learn how to get the best out of your camera.
Dave has designed this workshop so that you can improve your skills in utilising your camera to the fullest and learn how to capture those special moments, whether that be a field of flowers, a street scene, a rolling landscape or a birthday party!
This is a practical course and you will have a chance to try out what you have learned with your own camera.
