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

Just returned from New York and already it feels like a distant memory, can't believe how quickly that happens. What an amazing place both for architecture and even just to visit in general. I had some mixed weather which could not have been any better, those lovely buildings and skylines in clear and cloudy skies. Fingers crossed I have a few nice images which will hopefully start appearing on the website, facebook, flickr, etc very soon.

I wasn't allowed to mention it before but after Amateur Photographer magazine published the results in mid June I'm very pleased and excited to have been selected as the UK winner for the International EISA architecture competition. Fingers crossed that my set of 8 images go forward and do well in the International final.

Adobe has recently released a full new 2014 version of Photoshop CC with some nice new features along with the new version 5.5 of Lightroom. If already a subscriber to their software these updates are free and can be downloaded through the Creative Cloud application. For anyone who is contemplating new software or thinking of subscribing to Adobe they are still offering the photography bundle (photoshop & lightroom) for £8 per month, a serious bargain compared to what it used to cost.

Whilst on the subject of software, Apple has just announced their intention to stop all development on their popular "Aperture" program, looks like a bunch of new customers for Adobe Lightroom.

June 2015 course dates have now been added and are available on the website.

Hope everyone is enjoying our nice summer weather, it hasn't been too bad over here so far.

Customer Feedback

"A great few days on Skye. Billy has endless energy and enthusiasm for photography. I've come away feeling motivated to develop and move my photography up a gear. I've been taking landscape photos for years but still learnt loads and re-emphasised many key skills. Billy has a vast knowledge of photography and post processing and is willing to share so much. Just come prepared to absorb as much as you can. I also liked his honest, no nonsense approach to what's achievable in camera compared to what you can do post processing. A refreshing view that cuts right through the mystique that many photographers use to shroud their work. Thanks Billy."

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...
