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. Still not sure, why not have a browse at some previous students comments on my Testimonials page

Just back from a great course in Skye. For the first time ever during a workshop, Skye was the hottest place in the uk. 23 degrees in all that lovely scenery (and without midges) was just heaven. Fingers crossed for a good summer.

I'm pleased to have a small interview in this months Black & White magazine. As far as photography magazines go, this mag is about as good as it gets in my opinion and certainly worth a read every month. (if you like mono anyway)

Customer Feedback

"Hello Billy, I wanted to drop you a quick note for two reasons, firstly thank you and secondly that will help other people who are considering booking a course with you. So the short answer is yes you should book with Billy. What I found extremely valuable during the 3 day course up in Glencoe was the process followed in order to use Lightroom to create your "Art". For anyone who doesn't know Billy he takes you to great locations, captures the pictures and then converts them to "art". Thank you Billy and Donna and I hope to see you in 2016."
James Cameron

"Practical, down-to-earth, comprehensive (written notes included) - Billy shares his knowledge and expertise generously and enthusiastically. All the time available is used effectively to make the most of the course whether learning post-processing skills or being out taking photographs - day or night. A pleasant jocular atmosphere pervades proceedings and all-too-soon you are home looking to see how you can fit in another course. I can't help thinking that I wish I had been to a Billy Currie course years ago but not being able to turn the clock back, I'm very glad I've done one now."

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...
