Beginners Photography Workshop 

Transform your snaps into WallArt

 One Day 10am – 4pm
Including a light lunch and refreshments

This beginner’s photography workshop is for people new to photography and primarily aimed at digital SLRs (even though we can help with compact cameras too).
 The workshop is suitable for those with no prior knowledge of photography through to beginners wanting to improve their skills. All you need is an interest in photography and a wish to develop your skills in digital photography from the most basic functions to creating your own wall art. 

Your tutor for the day Darren Shipman is a professional photographer who has a B.I.P.P. (The British Institute of Professional Photographers) accreditation and has over 25 years experience as a working professional with enthusiasm to match and share with you. His relaxed and confident approach with photography will help you focus your skills to get the most out of your camera.

The workshop is mainly practical, with lots of hands on experience and opportunities for 1-1 tuition.

The structure for the day is as follows:

  •  MORNING session: 
    Familiarisation with digital cameras. We will look at the functions and operations you can achieve with your camera so that you can use it to its full capacity and discus questions that you may have as well as the real fundamentals including “turn off that auto button”.
  • AFTERNOON session: 
    Putting it all into action. By the end of the afternoon, you will be taking great images and will now be in control of your camera and the images you create. Taking place outside, either along a local canal or place of interest.

The workshop will help you to go more in depth with your camera use, and help you learn what you need to know about the capabilities of your camera.
Our aims are to give you more confidence with your camera and the ability to capture great images in the future.


This will be an opportunity to meet others who share your enthusiasm for photography and to develop your ability to create and share digital images that you can show off. The workshop will aim to develop your technical, visual, creative skills and thinking.
