After a brief tutorial and catch up on the basics we will be spending most of the day at the nearby Foxton Locks. The Locks can be busy on a Sunday, and I do not want to waste an hour of your training time waiting for food to be served, so there will not be a dedicated lunch break. There will be coffee & biscuits are provided on arrival and a light buffet snack, included a vegetarian option, mid afternoon at about 3pm. You will have a lot of free time to carry out your assignments on this course and there are several cafes, pubs and a restaurant on site where you can eat. If you have any allergies or special requirements it may be better to bring a packed lunch. The Foxton locks Inn tend to be very slow to serve when busy so I would not suggest eating there.

Hi

I mainly run group courses at the weekend as that’s when most people are available.  I don’t run any group courses during the week but I do run 121 private tuition courses. As I don’t have to share my time between 6 students these courses are effectively contain as much content as the beginners and intermediate course. The actual practical photography session is about three times as long as on the group courses and we are able to concentrate more on any specific interest you may have.

The one to one courses cost £295 for one person including lunch or you can bring a friend with you for just an extra £100. If you want to get started quickly I’m fully booked this week but I do have a few dates available during May and June.

Feel free to call me on 0116 2796906 or email to discuss any special requirements.

Kind regards

Glen

Student Testimonials

Having spent over a year using my camera only on full auto to take photos I decided I needed help to figure out all the settings I should be using and I'm so pleased I did.
This photography course explained all the settings and all the best picture composition tips I needed. Glen ensured no one left without all of their questions being answered- including me.

Laura Simpson

Hi Glen "Thanks for a most enjoyable and informative day, It answered all my questioned plus many more. Considering lunch was included I thought it was really excellent value for money."

David Stone

Hi Glen. I'm just dropping you a note to say how much I enjoyed the course today. You answered all my questions and gave me the confidence to go out and use my camera properly. Today has turned my box of expensive gadgets into top class photography equipment. Thanks!

Barry Cunliffe

This has been a great photography course and I know I can now take proper photographs instead of just snaps.

Highly Recommended.

Ivan Last

A good balance of technical & practical information with enough detail for the more experienced camera user without losing the beginners interest. A great course for getting the best out of my DSLR.

Iain Carpenter

A Fantastic Course. I now know how to use all the functions on the camera I didn't even know were there. I really enjoyed the course and learned a lot.

Karen Evans

I have enjoyed the day. I need to get out now and take hundreds of pictures to get it to stay with me.

Rosemarie Redfern.

I was a complete novice but now I feel quite excited about experimenting with my photography.

Carol Aries.

A great introduction to DSLR photography. Many thanks.

Phil Harrisonwild.

I had a load of questions and every one was answered. Really good examples on the course notes. Glen's a very patient teacher.

Helen Jones

Excellent food for thought and I've learnt a lot. I will go away and practice. Thank you very much.

Becky Sayer

I learnt more in the first 30 minutes of this camera course than I had in the last year.
