Photography Courses

Why learn with Nigel?

There are lots of people offering photography tuition out there, so why choose Nigel over any of the others? Here are four good reasons:

What we teach

Most of what Nigel teaches falls into two broad categories, both of which apply equally to beginners and experienced photographers:

  1. Getting the most out of your digital camera, whether it be a top-end digital SLR or a simple compact. How to make use of many of its critical functions, to be in control of the camera and hence your photography.
  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 three 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.

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.
