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.

Customer Feedback

"I've just enjoyed the long exposure course and have not only returned home with some good images, but had the chance to work on them in Lightroom under Billy's watchful eye. Billy undoubtedly knows his subject, and delivers it in such a way that's both easy to understand and remember. Though he does give you cards with the information on just in case you can't remember how to work out the hyper focal distances. A big thanks to both Billy and Donna for making the whole experience very enjoyable. A longer course further afield is very much on the cards." Adrian Taylor

"I have been thinking in depth how to phrase the acknowledgements for you Billy, for the recent fantastic experience I had in your photography course in the Isle of Skye, but I cannot find any other words other than VERY MANY THANKS! Thanks for being such a pleasant person and teacher. Thanks for making me feel at ease all the time. Thanks for your patience, for answering the same question without making me feel a tube ?. Thanks for all the funny and exiting stories you shared when you were driving us to wonderful places for perfect shoots. Thanks for your generosity giving away tips for setting the camera, composing and post-producing pictures, it was a total privilege to be in your course. The only regret I have is that I couldn’t get you to admit you are an Artist, I will try again in the next course I have already booked. Also a huge THANK YOU goes to Donna, who helped me enormously and made me feel so looked after during my trip up to Skye, I am not sure I would have made it without her. I am so looking forward the course in Glencoe!! THANKS!" Francesca Chianini

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...
