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.

Well, that's the first two camera clubs of the season visited and the new talk seemed to go down very well. It was great meeting everyone and hopefully there was something useful in the presentation for all those who attended.

I'm looking forward to my first two presentations of the season scheduled for this week. For anyone who attends either the Lesmahagow or Musselburgh clubs, I'll look forward to meeting you, please say hello.

Just returned from 4 days in Skye and the midges were about as bad as I've previously experienced. Anyone going north I would advise taking a net at least for the next few weeks anyway.

Due to a cancellation we now have one place free for the 3 day Glencoe course starting on Fri 30th October. If you don't want to wait until next year, now is your chance!

Anyone interested in getting an image into one of the photography magazines? Follow them on twitter, at least once a day I see tweets requesting images. Great way to not only get some exposure but be paid as well.

Looks like an interesting meteor shower over the next few nights. It is supposed to be the strongest for over 10 years and the Northumberland area looks to be a prime setting for anyone in the vicinity. Bet it would look fantastic above some of those castles and coastline.

Customer Feedback

"A great trip! Stunning locations, large comfortable accommodation and good company. Billy is a first class teacher removing the 'mystique' from the art of photography and explaining in a practical and logical way how to get fantastic results from your camera. I'd thoroughly recommend a course with Billy to any photographer, no matter what standard they may be." Chris Hunter

"Hi Billy, Had a brilliant time on your 2 day course at Glencoe. Your knowledge and passion for photography is incredible and after a day learning about lightroom, my limited skills have definitely improved. Many thanks." Mike Hawthorne

"Enjoyed a superb landscape and long exposure course with Billy in Northumberland. Billy has a wealth of experience and knowledge coupled with a passion for the subject that is infectious. The dynamic and fluid style coupled with a small group means that no opportunity and time is wasted. Would love to do more in the future and would not hesitate to try other locations."

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...
