Nigel Hicks Photography Courses

Photography courses in Devon, southwest England

Photography workshops led by Nigel Hicks FBIPP

Improve your photography skills with Nigel Hicks, one of Britain’s leading travel and landscape photographers.

Whether you’ve only recently picked up a camera or have been snapping away for many years, we’ll help you develop your photography.

Why learn with Nigel?

Here are four good reasons:

What we teach

Most of what Nigel teaches falls into two broad categories:

  1. Getting the most out of your digital camera, whether a top-end digital SLR or a simple compact. How to make use of its critical functions, to be in control of the camera instead of the camera being in control of you.
  2. Understanding the aesthetic aspects of photography. In other words, working out how to spot potentially great compositions within the scene in front of you, finding ways to mould a potential subject into a great composition, and then finally executing the image.

The courses we offer

Nigel teaches photography in four formats:


One-day photography workshops

Our one-day photography workshops all concentrate on photography in the great outdoors. You won’t be stuck indoors learning theory, but actually getting hands-on experience on-location, mainly in the beautiful countryside and along the stunning coasts of Devon, southwest England.

Photography tours

Nigel runs occasional photography tours, both in the UK and overseas, covering mainly landscape, nature and general travel photography, and aimed mostly at intermediate and advanced level photographers.

Personalised photography courses

Would you like to learn photography one-to-one with Nigel? Or do you have a group - perhaps some friends or work colleagues - that you would like to have your own photography workshop with? Nigel can put together your own workshop day, designed to suit your needs.

Photography course health and safety notes:

Please read these if you're thinking of coming on one of our courses:

1. All courses, particularly those involving landscape photography, involve a certain amount of walking, sometimes over fairly rough ground. We do try to keep this to a minimum, but please be aware that anyone taking part in the Dartmoor or north Devon coastal workshops will need to be able to walk at least one mile. Paths in these areas are generally steep and may be slippery. However, the views make it all very worthwhile!

2. Whilst we do everything we can to ensure the workshops are run in as safe a way and as safe an environment as possible, participants are responsible for the safety of themselves and their equipment. You are strongly advised to have your camera equipment insured for loss or damage when away from your home.

We take your privacy very seriously. See our privacy statement below.
