Photography course in Peterborough

24th September 2009
In: News
I offer lots of photography, Photoshop and photography marketing tips in the 'Photo tips' section of this website. However, if you really want to improve your skills then I also run one-to-one photography training courses to help people in and around the Peterborough area improve their skills.

If you want to learn photography quickly the best way is to get your hands dirty by practising and getting one-to-one tuition from someone that speaks in plain English. Not only can I help you understand your camera and start to create good compositions, I can also help you use Photoshop to transform your photos like this:



The benefits of one-to-one photography tuition

1. You get all my attention and a course totally built around your needs. If you want to focus more on Photoshop skills then that's fine; but if you'd prefer to learn about wildlife photography I can do that too. I'm totally flexible.

2. I can put things in a simple language for you, cutting through all the jargon. I have spent 13 years as a copywriter so I'm used to making complex things sound simple and interesting.

3. I produce step-by-step sheets for you to take away so you can practice what you have learnt. These sheets are all included in the price.

4. You can learn in the field - you won't be stuck in a classroom, we'll go out and you can learn by example and by trial and error.

5. I can show you the best sources of information: handy websites and great photography books.

6. I can tell you the best places to find wildlife to photograph.

7. I can show you how to give your photos that extra punch by using PhotoShop, HDR software and other useful packages.

8. I can show you how to market yourself as a photographer if you decide you want to make money from it. Marketing has been my day job since 1995 and I've studied (and still study) the art of photography marketing very thoroughly.

9. Unlike a college course you can dip in and out of the training and do as much, or as little as you want and for as long as you like. There are no ties at all and the course is 100% flexible to what you want.

10. I can get up at the crack of dawn and come with you to shoot great landscapes in the golden early morning light.

11. I started making money from photography within 3 years and I'm self taught, so imagine how quickly you could be taking professional quality photos.

12. I have two cameras and 3 lenses as well as all the software, filters, lights and other paraphanalia so if you don't have your own camera yet you can use mine while you build up your confidence.

13. If you want to take evening classes or a distance learning course that's fine, you can still use my services to help you get the best marks possible.

14. It's great value for money - in fact, consider it an investment as you could be making your money back before too long.

A photography course voucher makes a great birthday or Christmas present. I'll print and post you an attractive voucher on photographic paper at no extra charge - a lovely gift for anyone from complete beginners upwards.

I look forward to hearing from you and building you a photography course that's completely structured around what you want.

Photo comment By Helen Hill: I would be very interested in the 5 hour block lesson. When is the next course being held? Thank you. Helen Hell
Photo comment By Bill Marks: Hi I have been interested in photography for years but never been able to afford a good camera last last year i brought a canon dslr eos 400. I have used the manual settings now and then with very very limited knowledge and more luck in what im doing will this course show me the fundamental basics of manual settings so i can start to understand my camera
Photo comment By Dan Waters: Hi Bill, Thank you for your email - I'd be delighted to help you with your photography. The beauty of my training is that it's 1-2-1 so you get my undivided attention and you can learn exactly what you want, unlike in a classroom situation where you would stick to a rigid structure. The other benefit is that you can take lessons as and when you like, not to a strict timetable. I'm more than happy to explain the different functions on the camera and because I'm a copywriter I'm used to putting things into plain English. I hate jargon! On Monday I'm off to Malaysia and Indonesia until 4th November as I'm producing some photography and articles for CNN's travel website, so I won't be available until next month unfortunately. In the meantime I'd love to see some of your photos to see the level you're at and I'd also like to get an idea of the type of photography you're interested in. Finally, I offer a money-back guarantee, so if you're not entirely happy I'll give you your money back - you can't lose. Thanks again for your interest and I look forward to helping you improve your photography. All the best Dan Waters
