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.

Anyone interested in getting an image into one of the photography magazines? Follow them on twitter, at least once a day I see tweets requesting images. Great way to not only get some exposure but be paid as well.

Looks like an interesting meteor shower over the next few nights. It is supposed to be the strongest for over 10 years and the Northumberland area looks to be a prime setting for anyone in the vicinity. Bet it would look fantastic above some of those castles and coastline.

What is going on with this weather? Can't believe how bad July has been so far this year. Ended up at Glenfinnan last weekend. A 2 hour drive up in the rain, quick shot of the steam train in the rain before another 2 hour drive home in the rain. C'mon weather, sort yourself out!

I've just returned from a wee break exploring the Italian Dolomite mountains, hopefully I might start to get some images onto Facebook over the next week or two. What a stunning location, mountains you can drive up 10,000ft and then use a cable car for the rest. Well worth a trip for any photographer, so much beautiful scenery.

A new update this week from Adobe for LR and PS for anyone on the subscription plan. Looks like the "dehaze" filter could be quite useful.

Adobe has release a new Lightrooom update (6.0.1) which contains amongst other things, two major bug fixes. You can either update straight from Lightroom or use your Creative Cloud program.

Customer Feedback

"Having spent a single day with Billy on a landscape photography course I came away knowing more from that one day than the previous 7 years of trying to learn from books and magazines. Billy shared so much knowledge in a friendly and humorous way that I have already made personal recommendations to several friends and can't wait to attend one of his four-day, residential courses. Even if you think you know all there is to know about landscape photography I would still recommend one of Billy's courses - outstanding!"
Paul Rose

"Billy, I just wanted to say a big thank you for sharing your knowledge and wisdom this weekend on the Landscape Photography course. It really helped to cement my basic knowledge and filled in many gaps. I now feel confident that my future images will be much better composed and have a greater change of achieving the postcard look I am seeking. Your enthusiasm and passion for the subject are both very infectious and I am sure all future students will benefit greatly from this. Once again, thanks for a great day"

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...
