Advance your skills as a photographer with this 8 part workshop in digital photography. Featuring theory sessions & practical outdoor class.


They say a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing, but when it comes to improving your photography, a little knowledge can be a wonderful thing!

Do you ever ask yourself…

· Why don’t my photographs look like the ones you see in magazines?

· What do all these buttons on my camera do?

· Why are my pictures fuzzy?

· Why do my friends tell me my pictures are boring?

If you answered yes, then this is the course for you!

Over the eight classes course, tutor Mark Reeves will help you to transform your pictures from snapshots to works of art. Each week Mark will explain different aspects of becoming a better photographer and set tasks for participants to complete at home before the next class.

This course will comprise of seven evening classes via live zoom and a daytime (socially-distanced) outdoor workshop in and around Albert Dock and the Liverpool waterfront where you will put into practice the learning from the various classes.

Participants on this course will also be invited to join a private Facebook group to post pictures and get feedback from the course tutor.

The online course will be conducted live via Zoom with course participants fully able to interact with the course tutor during classes.

To get the most from this course you will need your own digital camera which allows you to manually control focus and aperture.
