Advanced Courses


Our Advanced level photography courses will teach you specialised photographic techniques for particular situations and genres of photography. You will learn how to work with your subject and environment as well as with your camera’s settings. You will also gain detailed knowledge of particular specialisations within photography.
Our Advanced level courses are delivered in different ways depending on the subject matter. The methodology we use will be tailored to provide the best learning environment for the material. Please refer to the specific course descriptions for more information.

These courses are designed for those with a firm grasp of their camera’s functions, who are comfortable with full manual control of the camera and are looking to learn new creative techniques or increase their knowledge of a specialist subject.

An Advanced level course is recommended if you are progressing from one of our Intermediate level courses, or if you have significant practical experience of photography, full working knowledge of your camera and full understanding of manual controls.
