Our 3 Day Intensive Beginners Photography Course will guide you through everything you need to know to start capturing great images with your DSLR or bridge camera. In our friendly relaxed learning environment you will soon become confident in using your camera to its full ability. With both time in our classroom and out on location in this area of outstanding natural beauty you will soon start to see a marked improvement in your photography. Our Chichester Harbour based classroom is fully equipped to assist in your learning and our professional trainers are on hand throughout.

We will guide you through the basic way in which a digital SLR or bridge camera works and go through each of its controls. We will concentrate on the affect the shutter speed has on our images and will also look at exposure compensation, metering and ISO settings. The day will be equally split with time in the classroom and taking images around  Chichester  Harbour.

By the end of the day you will be able to identify and operate most of the camera controls and have a good understanding of how to freeze movement by proper control of the shutter speed. You will also have a good understanding of the camera metering system and be able to select the correct metering modes for the images you wish to capture.


We will begin the day re-capping on the previous days learning. We will then guide you through how the aperture affects our images and what affects depth of field. The remainder of the day will be spent taking images at a nearby location.

At the end of day 2 you will have a good understanding of how the aperture affects our images in relation to depth of field.



The morning will be spent at various locations around Chichester Harbour putting in to practice what we have learned over the past two days. Your trainer will guide you throughout the morning in this beautiful area of outstanding natural beauty. After lunch at Chichester Yacht Club you will be shown how to download, edit and prepare images for printing along with how to put together a panoramic image.

At the conclusion of the course you will be confident in taking control of your camera and you will be able to start to produce some excellent images that you will be proud to display.
