This photography course takes place in a variety of Central London locations specially selected for each masterclass module. We make our way on foot to each location as they lead from one to another in a progressive way. The course is suitable for cameras which have full manual settings and for photographers who are comfortable with their cameras. You should have a working knowledge of using aperture priority. You may already be using manual mode and require further instruction in how to control exposure and take it further for creative responses to the subject or location.
The Photography Masterclass Course is delivered as 1to1 tuition or is private to you and your personal group of friends/colleagues.
Photography Masterclass – the Artist Within is of 5hrs duration, 10.30 am – 3.30 pm. We take a short working break for refreshments and to review progress.
