Photography Workshops

Wednesday, February 6, 2013

After two very enjoyable and successful photography workshops in Westbury last August, we are happy to announce more opportunities to learn more about your camera and get better photos!

With more and more students owning a DSLR or bridge camera and considering the popular option of Photography GCSE or A'level, it has been a really interesting, inspiring and useful workshop for them to get hands on training, tips and techniques from a professional photographer.

In the first of the previous workshops we concentrated on portrait and model photography, teaching about how the camera works and getting them away from the 'automatic setting' to understanding the aperture and shutter, considering framing, composition and light. This was extremely popular and you can see one student directing a model on the photo below.
The second workshop was all about reportage photography and how to capture the moment, whilst once again ensuring the camera was set manually, considering the subject, depth of field, and also took in professional photoshop techniques. This was also very popular and images the students took were featured in the local press, as well as in the school magazine and online.

All of the participants have since gone into Year 10 studying Photography GCSE and have such a huge head start on their fellow students, not only in their techniques, but also in the work for their portfolio.

For our new photography workshops we will not only be passing on skills and techniques to students, but also to adults. The first workshop is on Saturday March 16th 2013 at Matravers School in Westbury. The workshop runs from 10-3pm and costs £35 per person.

There is a maximum of 8 participants per workshop to ensure we can give you as much attention, tips and techniques as possible. So far 5 of the 8 places have been booked for this first workshop, so to not miss out get in touch with Beverley Jessop:

We are also planning a workshop for parents and expectant parents to take better photos of their little ones. If you are interested, please get in touch with Jackie McDine:
