This Photography Quick Start is a 2 hour group course that offers a photography taster. This course is ideal as a ‘pre-course’ to the main Photo Walk or if you just want an introduction to photography to set you off in the right direction for your photography journey.

If you would prefer a comprehensive 1-2-1 (couples welcome) course which will teach you everything you need to know to take great photos in just 4 hours, then please look at my Photo Walk.

I often get asked whether people should attend the Photo Walk or the Quick Start. Only you can decide which course is right for you.  Here are some things to consider:

  • Do you prefer group courses or 1-2-1?
  • Do you want an introduction or an in-depth course?
  • 2 hours or 4 hours?
  • Personalised or generic?

If you want to learn everything you need to know to take great photos in just 4 hours on a course that is tailored to meet your needs, then the Photo Walk is for you.  However, if you just want to covers some basics or check out my teaching style before committing to the Photo Walk, then the Quick Start is for you.
