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.

Latest News

Where does time go? I can't believe we have reached December already as it seems autumn was only a week to two ago! I have even spotted a couple of Christmas trees recently, surely a little early, no?

During November I completed the last 4 camera club visits of the year but since then I have had a late booking at Wishaw early December. As always, if anyone is attending the presentation please say hello, it would be great to meet you.

I also had some exiting news recently when I received notification that two of my images had been commended in Landscape Photographer of The Year finals and have been featured in the book plus the gallery in London's Waterloo. I'm hoping to make it down for the opening very soon but not too sure my schedule will allow. I have however already purchased my copy of the book which confirms there were indeed some very varied and beautiful entrants this year. I always think it as one of the best photography books to buy annually as the images are so varied in both subject and style. It would certainly make a good stocking filler for the photographer who has everything.
For anyone in the vicinity, the Landscape Photographer of The Year winner’s gallery will be in Londons Waterloo from 1st December until 31st January. It is well worth a visit with all the winning and commended images on display.

My calendars have now been designed and proofed ready to go. I am just waiting a few weeks before getting the bulk of them printed to hopefully take advantage of some festive season special offers. These often happen late November early December so fingers crossed.

It looks like the new Canon 7D MkII has started hitting the shelves and causing quite a stir, a top class piece of kit by all accounts.

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

The weather has certainly taken a dip up here in central Scotland over the last week, I even had to scrape the car on a couple of occasions. Long may it continue and hopefully we might be lucky enough to get plenty of snow this year, it makes such beautiful photographs.

Anyone requiring further info on anything discussed above whether it be calendars or Loxley or LPOY, etc, just drop me an email and I'll be happy to help you out.

Customer Feedback

"Billy & Donna, Just to say thank you to you both for a very enjoyable and enlightening day on the Glencoe Photography Course. I have learnt valuable insights into this new fascinating pastime of dSLR photography." Neil Rose

"Hi Billly, Just to thank you (and Donna!) for providing such an excellent workshop yesterday. The one day landscape course was even better than anticipated and I went home and started editing my images immediately! I am amazed at how much I learned in such a short period of time both about the practical elements of taking the picture as well as loads about editing it afterwards: now, I even understand hyperfocal distance! I've already recommended your workshop to a friend and I am sure she will be in touch soon. You're professionalism and humour made the day." Gill Westwater

I thoroughly enjoyed the one day course in Glencoe and surroundings. Billy provided clear and comprehensive explanations about what could and could not be achieved using cameras and the importance of post-processing the resulting images to get best results. He answered questions in an expert manner on a wide range of photographic matters. I look forward to participating in a further course. Thank you, Billy." John Chapman

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...
