Perth Photography Class – £450


The aim of this one day photography class in Perth, Scotland is to demistify the workings of your camera and to take complete creative control of your camera for the first time. Classes are private, but you can bring along a friend for free and we’ll even lend you both a DSLR for free.

Whether you’ve just been given a new digital camera, or you’ve been stuck in automatic mode for years, our tutor will cut through all the jargon and complicated technicalities to help you take full creative control of your camera.

The first hour will be spent going over some basic theory helped by some coffee/tea and cake (on us). The next 4 hours will be spent out-and-about in Perth, putting into practice what you’ve learned. The instructor will patiently take you through the workings of your camera, step-by-step, all the way to mastering Manual mode. We will take a twenty minute comfort/snack break at 1.30 pm.

At the end of this course in Perth, you will receive a free pdf guide covering all aspects taught on the course. To purchase this course please Click Here, or book directly with David on 07400 705 357.
