BEGINNERS PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE
DESIGNED TO HELP YOU TAKE BETTER PHOTOGRAPHS
HOW DOES IT WORK?
WEEKLY ZOOM CALLS
Sessions take place Zoom. Sessions normally start at 8pm, after toddlers bedtime. Babies are welcome on the call.
SMALL GROUPS (MAX 4)
Small groups allow us to get to know each other. Sessions are tailored to the needs of the group.
I love it when people think as they learn. Sessions are dynamic, and I encourage questions as we go.
HOMEWORK BETWEEN SESSIONS
The homework is designed to make sure that you are confident putting your new skills into practice.
Rated 5* on both Facebook and Google.
I recently completed the beginners course with Lyndsey and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lyndsey is clearly very knowledgeable and she was an excellent teacher. She really made sure that we’d understood everything she was teaching us during the session and doing the homework really reinforced this for me. I’ve come away from the course with lots of new skills to practice.
I LOVED IT
I have recently completed the 101 course and it was fantastic! Lyndsey was extremely helpful & knowledgeable. In three weeks I’ve gained some really useful knowledge to be able to understand my camera settings, which is what I’d hoped to achieve from the course. 100% worth it! Thanks Lyndsey.

DO YOU HAVE
IS MY CAMERA SUITABLE?
To attend the course you will need a camera that allows you to control the core settings. This means your camera will have manual and semi-automatic modes. If you’re not sure then send me a message and I can check for you. Most DSLRs, mirrorless and bridge cameras will be suitable for the course.
I KNOW NoTHING ABOUT MY CAMERA ...
Don’t worry. Most people who come on the course before have only ever used their camera in auto mode. Some haven’t even switched their camera on. As long as you’re willing to learn, I can teach you everything you need to know.
HOW LONG DO THe COURSES LAST?
Each course lasts for 3 weeks. The beginners sessions normally run for 3 consecutive weeks, on a Monday night at 8pm. Occasionally, where there is a bank holiday or something exciting going on, there may be a 2 week gap between sessions – please check the dates when you book.
WHAT IF I MISS A SESSION?
The course is 3 weeks long, and each week builds on knowledge from the previous week. I really encourage you to do everything you can to attend each week. That said, I realise that life happens and you might not be able to make one of the sessions. If you let me know in advance I can record the session for you, subject to the agreement of the other people on the call. Alternatively, you are welcome to take the missed session the next time I run it (for beginners classes this is normally 3 or 4 weeks later).
DO YOU OFFER 121 TRAINING?
Yes. 121 sessions are suitable for any level of photographer and can be tailored to meet your need. Sessions cost £50 for a 1 hour 121 session, with a minimum commitment of 2 hours. At the moment all 121 sessions are taking place on Zoom.
Discounts are available for ongoing mentoring sessions (minimum 3 sessions).
DO YOU TEACH TEENAGERS?
Yes. Teenagers have a choice about what works best for them. Older teenagers are able to join the beginners courses. I do sometimes run courses specifically for teenagers, subject to demand. 121 sessions are also available for teenagers.
DO YOU SELL GIFT VOUCHERS?
Yes. Gift vouchers are available for any course of any combination of courses. You can reserve a place on a course for a recipient, or you can allow the recipient to contact me to arrange their place. Gift vouchers have a 12 month expiry date. If needed, a e-gift voucher can be sent to you, or a physical voucher posted either to you or the recipient.
