Our most popular workshop gives you the knowledge and confidence to switch your camera off auto mode. The DSLR Learning Beginners Masterclass is intensive but straight forward and you will be taught from the ground up. During the first half of the course, you will explore the functions of your DSLR camera, how they work and when to use them as well as learning the basics of photography. After lunch, you will go out and take some photographs using the techniques you have learnt. If you are not a beginner and are merely just looking to refresh your skills, the DSLR Learning Beginners Masterclass is a great way to advance your skills and knowledge. Due to James's unique teaching style, a wealth of information is covered on one day up to what many photographers would consider as intermediate level. Once this course is complete you can then go on to more advanced courses such as our DSLR Learning Intermediate Workshop and DSLR Learning Night Photography Course

"You have a DLSR don't you? Don't know what all the buttons do? Not only do I know what all the buttons do like a pro. I can take em like a pro too! My friends hardly believe that I took this photo today on the beginners masterclass workshop I did though and I learnt all the techniques and how to compensate for errors. Such an easy laid back course where i met new friends got better at photography and from now on MY FAMILY PHOTOS ARE GOING TO GO VIRAL ON FACEBOOK! just enquire if anything"! - Steve Walker
