So, you've got a new camera? And want to know how to use it?
Or maybe you've been shooting for a while... but never quite mastered all those settings?.
Master Your Photography is a new series of online courses that will teach you how to get the best from your hobby, and perhaps even turn it into a career.
Best of all, you'll be able to get more enjoyment from the images that you create, simply by knowing that you used skills that you've learned rather than just trusting the technology to do the job.
Hosted on Udemy.com, one of the worlds largest online educational providers, our photography course lectures are available night and day so you can learn at your own pace - and at a time that's convenient to you.
No need to book an appointment in advance. Simply log on, and start learning
+ Learn at your own pace...
+ Watch each video at a time that's convenient to you
+ then watch it again in the future if you need to refresh your memory.
When you enrol on any course you're locking in 'lifetime' access to all the resources available - including any new lectures and downloadable PDF's that are added!
Join a community of like minded photographers who are learning alongside you. Take part in online discussions - ask questions, and get answers direct from your tutor.
Get involved in the Facebook group that accompanies the online training and extend your knowledge.
A good library of books is a wonderful thing. And a good library of photographic books is even better!
For reference, for pleasure, for inspiration.... Start your library now and see it grow with your photography.
Sometimes we just can't get out and take photos - but we can still enjoy photography through both traditional and e-book formats.
Not many things in life are free, but photographers tend to help each other as we're all basically nice people!
The aim of this section is to provide useful, free, tips and resources that will help new photographers to understand some of the basic concepts.
There is a lot of information on the web, but unfortunately not all of it is accurate. The information you'll find here is either written by ourselves, or checked by us, before we publish it. So you can be sure that you're learning the right things!
You know the old saying.... the best camera is the one you have with you. Well, that's certainly true, and having a better camera or other piece of photographic equipment won't turn you into a better photographer.
But it can make your life easier, and allow you to get shots that wouldn't be available to you otherwise (you try holding a camera steady for a five second exposure without a tripod!).
So, although our primary aim is to teach photographic skills, we do get asked a lot about the equipment we use.
So, in this section we'll list photographic gear that we have personally found to be useful.
It's not an exhaustive list as we've used so much kit over the last twenty years, and we're not sponsored by any specific brands.
You can be sure that if we mention a piece of equipment here, it's because we have experience of the brand and/or used a specific item and found it to be of benefit when creating images. As always, do your research, read reviews, and try to test kit yourself when possible.

|Photography and the “movies”.|
There’s always been a strong connection between photography and film making – understandably so when you stop and think about it: 35mm film photography was originally a development of the movie industry and allowed compact size cameras to be developed to be used by anyone. Interestingly, a lot of modern DSLRs now use image capture […]

|It’s cold outside…. so wrap up and GET OUT!|
In the UK there’s a lot of cold weather predicted for the next few days – which means there’s some fantastic opportunities to get your camera out! It’s not always necessary to have dramatic expanses of countryside to create great photos… Wrap up warm and look for the small ‘details’. Why not switch to macro […]
