General Enthusiast's Photography
Five Week Course

With Gavin Brown

Though this general but comprehensive course, participants will be exposed to professional photographers images with instruction and learn how to do the same through informative digital presentations, and practical work with your camera.

The participants will understand how their camera works, how to look after it properly and how to get, select and present the quality images.  

All participants will get the opportunity to produce a museum grade 44 x 54cm printed and framed reproduction of their favourite image. 

On the final workshop evening, participants will learn how to professionally hang their work in an exhibition space, before hosting a VIP preview evening, including complementary bubbles and nibbles, for their friends and family.

Course Expectation

The course includes written material and hands on practical work to gain familiarisation, access and control of the important functions of your camera and will cover the following areas.

  • Portrait Photography
  • Landscape Photography
  • Close Up Photography/Macro
  • Sports / Action Photography

The level of participation is high, with group exercises and assignments to practice on each week.

Assessment and review of your own pictures in each class as you learn more and more about your camera and your images. 

The most important aspect will be the question and answer opportunities throughout the entire course providing personal satisfaction and understanding of your specific camera and photographic requirements.
