Who are these introduction photography courses suitable for?:

The Complete Novice Photographer: This is someone who has never had a camera or any serious interest in photography before – then one day they just get the bug – maybe they play around with a friends camera or get one as a present, or they see an image or exhibition that suddenly inspires them to take it up as a hobby. Our introduction to photography courses are absolutely perfect as a first stop to getting you on your way to producing some amazing photographs.
The Dabbling Photographer: These are photographers who have been taking photos for some years. They have the shutterbug and they have it bad – they bring the camera everywhere and love photography, however in all the excitement have never actually taken much or any formal training and are often self taught and may reach a plateu in their photography and want to make sure there basics are in place and are sound. Youtube has been kind, but can be hard to know what advice to take. On our photography courses we see a fair few of these snappers who kick their photography up a notch.
The Returning Photographer: “I used to be a photographer, I used to have an old 35mm film camera and was in a few camera clubs around Dublin” . For photographers like this, life can get in the way and photography may take a bak seat. Now you may want to get back in the game and are looking to get up to speed with digital or need a quick refresher on a few basics – with our courses, you will be back in the swing of things in no time.
