CameraBlurb

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

My upgrade from Photoshop CS6 to CC has been moving along nicely. I have been playing around with CC for a few weeks now and feel quite comfortable with all the new features. It has also been installed on one of the student computers and if there are no issue with this over the next couple of weeks I will go ahead and install it on the rest. Some nice new tools and features in there, certainly worth the upgrade.

Over the past few weeks I have started a new series of 8x3 panorama type images on my Facebook and Flickr galleries. This particular crop I feel dramatically changes a photograph, even on existing images it seems to make an amazing difference. If you fancy a look you can check them out here - www.facebook.com/billycurriephotography

I managed to nip over to visit the stunning Kelpies a few weeks ago. For anyone who doesn't know, these are a new 30m sculpture of two mystical horses which used to roam the canals of Scotland. The grand official opening is on 22nd April but a visit to the sculpture at any time is well worth the effort, they are amazing. My image can be viewed here - www.flickr.com/photos/billycurrie/13357166093/

New course dates for March 2015 have now been added to the website.

I think Spring has finally reached us here in Scotland, the weather has been getting progressively milder with buds starting to appear on various trees and flowers. After the damp grey winter we have had it will be nice to see some lush green landscapes again.

Customer Feedback

"Having been on two of Billy's courses (with a third one already booked!) I thoroughly recommend anyone who is starting out or interested in improving their photography to attend one of the courses. On my most recent course, in Assynt, Sutherland and Torridon, the locations we were taken to were breath taking and Billy's tuition was fantastic, skilfully adapting the different technique’s he taught us depending on the location and time of day - from long exposure shots on the beach at Durness to night photography at Ardvreck Castle!! Then in the evening the “Digital Darkroom” tuition using Photoshop and Lightroom was incredibly valuable. Don’t hesitate in booking one of Billy’s courses… they are just fantastic!" Alison Porwol

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...
