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

"My wife Julie and I, together with a friend - Heather Low - from Sydney Aus., completed a 3 day workshop with Billy on the Isle of Skye. It was a great 3 days. I know that I speak for all 3 of us when I say that the time spent with Billy moved our understanding of both the camera and the processing to a new and higher level. No time was wasted as we started with the introduction on the first evening together. The next 2 days were full - about 14 hours each as we moved around for different landscapes and spent time on post processing with Lightroom. We had a mix of weather - what else would one expect in late September on Skye? It only added to the experience and expanded our horizons in terms of black and white photography. As you would expect, Billy knew exactly what location to go to, and within that location, where exactly to obtain the best images. While there were on occasion many other photographers in the area, they were never a problem in terms of the instruction or the image making. The morning shoot of the Quairaing and the evening shoot at Neist Point will be remembered for a very long time. In summary, my wife Julie and I would go back to do another workshop with Billy anytime; we highly recommend taking one of Billy's workshops. You cannot help but improve your image making".

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...
