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.


Within most of our courses, post processing also features as we believe these skills and techniques are absolutely crucial in taking your photography to the next level. The tuition is very structured and you will be provided with a post processing workbook which covers all subject matter from equipment calibration, organizing/backing up your images through to the final production of your masterpiece! 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.

On the brand new adobe camera raw (9.4) there is a nice new tool (boundary warp) for fixing the edges of panoramas if the individual shots haven't lined up properly. Looks like it could prove quite useful and seems to work well.

Not seen it yet but believe one of my New York images has been featured in the "B&W Photo" magazine. What an amazing place to photograph. For architecture I'm not sure there could be better.

Great visit to Dunoon Camera Club last night and the presentation went well. Thanks for making me so welcome, what a great wee club

Customer Feedback

"I'd been keen to do the Northumberland course since spending two enjoyable and useful days with Billy in Glencoe last year - and this second course didn't disappoint. Billy, as ever, was full of enthusiasm for getting top quality images no matter the weather and he was an expert in taking us to great locations with good foregrounds and viewpoints at the right time of day. We did cover some of the same ground as last time, but I learnt lots of new things and with Billy's guidance and patience, I got to know my new camera very much better in a short space of time. Not only is Billy incredibly knowledgeable about photography and post processing, he is also a good teacher and it's quite rare to find all of those skills in one person. I'm not sure I'm fit enough to tackle the Old Man of Storr but I've no doubt I'll be back on another course soon. Thanks again Billy for all your help, guidance and above all patience."

"I had a great time on the one day course I attended in June. It was really informative and inspiring. Also, the enthusiasm with which the course was presented rubbed off. I would love to attend a residential course and will look to do so in the next year along with a friend who was inspired by my relating my experience to her. Thank you."

Other Training

Even though most of our workshops are based around general landscape photography, on many of the longer courses we often have the opportunity to participate in some other styles such as long exposure, minimalism and possibly even night photography.

Being experienced in many other styles of photography, during our holiday I am happy to offer advice and even some basic tuition in any of these. Below are a few examples...
