Our primary goal in each course is to equip you with a full understanding of the basic, but crucial manual controls of a camera. Understanding these controls will ensure that you can confidently use any camera and will allow you to undertake any style of photography in all types of situations or lighting conditions. This knowledge will equip you with the skills to deal with, for example, low light, nighttime, macro, nature, sports and many more.
We will also develop your technique in using the optimal settings on your camera and will instill a number of best practices to ensure that you can consistently produce images of the highest technical quality in any conditions.
The features and controls of a camera can at first appear quite intimidating. Experience has taught us here at Billy Currie Photography, that people who come along to our courses are pleasantly surprised at how straightforward things become once they absorb the basic principles and develop sound manual photography techniques.

We aim to provide you with a sound basic skillset that you can then enhance and develop on-going throughout your photography journey.
All of our courses are strictly limited to a maximum number of 3 students. This ensures the best possible use of teaching time with each individual as people learn at different rates and will have varied levels of experience. So whether you are a complete beginner wondering where on earth to start or a seasoned photographer looking for some more advanced tuition, it doesn't make a difference.
