We offer our Beginners Photography Course - Get off Auto - in the picturesque campus of Nottingham University, and Deer Rut Walks at Wollaton Park. Full details are below and are included in your joining instructions. We also run workshops at Clumber Park, Sudbury Hall and Whisby Nature Park, see our East Midlands Workshops.
Explore Your Camera Part 1 - Get off Auto
In the beautiful and picturesque campus of Nottingham University, learn new camera skills to get off the auto setting on your camera.
The workshop runs from 10 am until 4pm and you'll learn how to use Aperture Priority to take control of your camera and get your photos looking how you want them to look! We go through the different buttons and dials on your camera so that you understand what they do and explain how and when to use them.
A DSLR is available for loan on the day free of charge, subject to availability; please check with the tutor on 0776 233 6222 before booking.
There are both theory and practical sessions on this workshop, and supporting notes and handouts are provided.
Deer Rutting Walks
These walks take place in October and are an opportunity to put into practice what you've learned in your workshops in the picturesque setting of Wollaton Hall Deerpark and Gardens or to simply come along and enjoy a morning of photography
There is no classroom time, simply three hours of photography with a professional photographer who will help, support and discuss ideas on how to photograph these amazing creatures during the exciting rutting season.
We meet at the park at 7am so that we make the most of the beautiful morning light.
We'll finish at 10.30am with a tea or coffee and a post walk chat in the Courtyard Cafe. You're free to spend the remainder of the day in the park, photographing the Hall, doing some landscapes or taking more images of the deer.
It's recommended that students have at least a 200mm lens to get the best images.
