The Dreghorn Photography Fundamentals level courses will introduce you to the core concepts of photography.
Our photography tutor Stuart will teach you the basic knowledge you need to learn, so you can prevent the camera from causing problems and gain control of the camera. You can then get off automatic and start using all the capabilities of your camera. This will enable you to solve common errors in photography and unlock your creative potential.
Your Fundamentals course can be delivered in a variety of different methods. You can choose between a classroom-based course with practical elements, a fully practical walking course or a digital editing workshop.
These courses are suitable for you if you are completely new to photography, or if you are just looking for a refresher on the basics. You don’t need any prior knowledge at all for these classes – just bring yourself, your camera and a willingness to learn.
