Photography Courses at Cobham, Surrey and Chichester, West Sussex


Imber Court Photo Training operate photography courses from their locations at Painshill Park and Imber Court in Surrey along with our Chichester Harbour location in West Sussex. Our photography courses have been designed for photographers of all levels from complete novices to experienced photographers who are looking to improve their photographic skills and techniques. For those just starting out in photography our Beginners Photography Courses are an excellent option and will teach you the basics and help you build the foundations to become excellent photographers in the future. At Imber Court Photo Training we believe there are three key elements that you need to understand and master to start taking great images. Your photographs need to be technically correct; this means you have used and understand the right camera settings to capture the shot. Secondly your images need to be well composed and finally they need to contain an element of emotion! We can teach you the first two elements but the emotion part comes with experience and lots of practice, basically its all about being in the right place at the right time in the right lighting conditions and knowing what to do to capture that moment in time!
All our photography courses are delivered by Ashley, a professional photography trainer with many years of photographic experience, who set up the company in 2009. Ashley will show you how to achieve the key elements required to start capturing wonderful images. You will concentrate on ensuring that your images are technically correct and well composed. Once you have mastered these key elements you will have acquired the skills to start capturing great images with your DSLR or Mirrorless camera.
