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.

PhotoshopBlurb

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.

For anyone heading up North... the midges have well and truly arrived. If there is no wind forecast I would definitely ensure I had a midge net otherwise you might get an unpleasant wee surprise. They were pretty bad last week in Sutherland.

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.

Customer Feedback


"I have just returned from my third workshop with Billy and as before Billy provided excellent help and guidance while out taking photographs and during post processing with Lightroom. We were taken to great locations and shown how to get the best out of them whatever the weather. Billy is great company and I would not hesitate to recommend one of his workshops".
Rob Hume


"I attended the Northumberland course and really enjoyed it. Billy was very informative and helpful and I learned a great deal both about taking photographs and also how to perform many post-processing techniques which I will find very useful in advancing my photography and my computer skills if I can remember them all that is!! I found his enthusiasm for the subject infectious and his willingness to share his knowledge refreshing. Here's to next course".

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...
