Photography Workshops for Beginners in Northern Ireland

Get More from Your Camera - Do you want to create fantastic pictures of your family, children and friends?

Do you want to take better photographs when visiting new places?

Are you frustrated with the quality of the photographs you take with your fancy new camera?

Confused by all the buttons, dials and options?

Are you Stuck on Auto?

Do you end up just using the camera on your smartphone because its easier?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, this is the perfect one to one photography workshop for you!

This is the One to One version of my popular group workshop, Get More from Your Camera, ideal for those who prefer working one to one rather than a group environment.

Many people find they learn more working with a professional photographer tutor for a few hours than they would in months of reading books on photographic techniques or watching online videos.

Full-time professional photographer and photography tutor Paul Crawford now provides one to one photography workshops for photographers of all abilities using simple and straightforward language – no jargon!

The workshops are tailored to your individual requirements and available throughout the year at a venue of your choice.

Camera suitable for photography course for beginners
  • Experience Required

    No previous photography experience is required for this photography course. If you are "stuck on Auto" and want to get more from your digital camera, this is the perfect course for you.

  • What Equipment do I need?

    This photography course is suitable for those with DSLR, Compact System Cameras and many Bridge Cameras.

    If your camera has a dial with M A S P or (Tv & Av on Canon) then you will benefit from this photography course.

    Paul has a Nikon DSLR available to loan during the course if you would like to “try before you buy”

In this workshop, we will take a look at some of the basic common controls found on most cameras. Whatever type of camera you have, I want you to start to get an understanding of what each of the controls does, how they work, any disadvantages or drawbacks to them and how to start getting better results from each control.
