This weekly photography course will build your confidence in photography skills, taking you from beginner to brilliant in five weeks. Designed for participants who have their own DSLR cameras, this course is run by professional photographer Vanessa Miles for those who love photography and want to venture off the automatic mode.

We will also look at the different genres of photography. You will gain practical, hands on experience as you get to know your camera in this interactive course. In a small group you will be taking pictures and downloading the images in most of the sessions, creating a supportive environment to learn and progress your skills in the medium you love.
