The aim of this workshop is to give you confidence in using a digital camera, downloading your images and digitally outputting your work. You will be able to use your camera both in the studio and on location. You will require your own Digital SLR or standard camera during sessions. We can adapt our delivery to different makes and types. You will be given one or two basic briefs/tasks to work on.

No formal qualifications required, however, you will benefit if you have some previous experience and a keen interest in photography. You will require your own Bridge, Mirrorless or DSLR camera.

How you will be assessed

There is no formal end of course assessment, only a series of in-class practical exercises and tasks. A group exhibition can be arranged and your individual targets will be set by your tutor.
