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.

We have been having some lovely mixed autumn weather up here in Scotland and the trees are about as nice as I've ever seen them. Maybe only a week or two left before the best of the colour will be gone. No time to spare for anyone wanting beautiful autumn images.

Customer Feedback

Morning Billy, thanks for a a great few days in Northumberland. We often see & hear so much hype & mystique about creating the perfect image that the basics can get lost. A very clear & uncomplicated approach to photography & image processing, which blends the key technical elements with the tools (camera & lightroom) to allow the individual to develop their own style to produce better images. Combining the technical aspects to the greater creativity now available from computer processing expands your horizons. I feel my photography is really only limited by my own imagination & creativity. Thanks"

"Just got back from Northumberland, which is my 3rd course with Billy and as usual it was brilliant. You stay in a farm cottage close to all the great locations. Billy adapts each day based on what we decide we're up for. I had a light bulb moment on this course when Billy showed us some of his recent photos and what he's done with them in Lightroom; they're amazing. You think you can't get shots like that but if you listen to Billy and you practice your Lightroom skills you can. The days are packed with going to locations to shoot and processing some of your better shots; tiring but well worth it. I will definitely be booking on another course; I just get so much out of them".

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...
