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

Well that’s another Christmas and New Year over, hopefully everyone had a great time, got something nice presents from Santa and are looking forward to a fantastic 2015. Over the festive period I managed a dawn shoot from the top of a mountain in Glencoe and lots of nice family time. All in all, a great wee break.

It was really nice to have some lazy time off during the holidays as January is shaping up to be a very busy time for me. I’m off to Saudi Arabia early in the month where I’ll being giving some photography based lectures as well as running a few workshops. Not a place I imagined I would ever visit but after being approached by a university out there it seemed too good an opportunity to turn down.

The day after I return from Saudi I am then off to New York again. This visit is not a family break but more of a hardcore photography trip concentrating mostly on long exposure architecture. After getting a little taster for the city during a family break last year it is very exciting to get back out there for a photography only trip, so much opportunity and such stunning varied scenes in this amazing place.

Once back from New York It’s then off to Skye for a 4 day course which should hopefully produce some nice snowy topped mountain images. It’s always cold up there at this time of year but you just can’t beat some nice winter images of the Black Cuillin.

I also have a few magazine features appearing this month, there is a 3 page black & white special in Januarys edition of Photography Monthly as well as a 5 page architecture feature in Amateur Photographer sometime between now and early February. For anyone on social media, it is well worth following the various photography magazines as they are always on the lookout for images and pay for any that are featured.

December 2015 dates going onto the website soon, hopefully within the next few days.

I hope everyone isn’t too sad to be returning to normality after the festive period, onwards and upwards as they say.


Customer Feedback

“A throughly enjoyable course full of information and insights into landscape photography.( Now the hard bit comes in trying to assimilate it all. ) Very worthwhile, I look forward to future workshops.” Keith Sheppard

“I would like to thank you for a very informative day. This was a present from my wife for my birthday. I had been thinking about doing a course to improve my techniques and get an understanding about Photoshop. After attending Billy's course it has given me a better understanding of what I can do and will be able to achieve with a little bit of work. I will certainly be looking to attend another of the longer course at some time. Thanks for your very informative advice that was easy to understand.” Alistair Downie

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...
