Beginners Guide to Photography
Photographic Training Workshops with Julian Claxton
Half Day Workshop aimed at those who want more from their camera and want to learn the basics of photography using a DSLR, Bridge or Compact Camera.
In The Beginners Workshop we will explore some of the settings on your camera. Specifically covering;
• The difference between aperture and shutter speeds
• Program mode
• ISO and why this matters
• Landscape basics
• Different file types
• Why you don’t need to spend thousands on a camera
Typically we spend the first two hours in the workshop/studio, working our way through the above points.
During the 3rd hour we head out of the studio. Leaving the theory behind, heading out to a local location to practice some of the elements we’ve discussed.
It’s then back to the studio to critique some of the images we’ve taken and a final Q & A session.
Each participant takes home pre typed notes from the course
Courses typically run from 9:30am – 1:30pm and include coffee and homemade cake.
Places on the courses are strictly limited to a maximum of 2/3 people. This helps keep the tuition personal and concise, making sure you feel comfortable with what is being covered.

My workshops are relaxed and informal sessions, enabling you to get the most from your camera.
I regularly write technique and informative features for several photographic magazines including Professional Photographer, Bureau of Freelance Photographers & Practical Photography, so you can be assured of an informative, relaxed and enjoyable photographic workshop.
