Whatever camera you own
On my half day or full day photographic workshops I take a maximum of two students. The courses are suitable for a beginner with a new camera who wishes to learn what the settings on the camera are for and how to use those settings to take better pictures or an advanced amateur who wishes to improve their photography.
Bring to the course, camera and lenses together with download cable if available, a fully charged camera battery and if possible a clear memory card. Don’t forget warm clothes and sensible shoes. The courses are weather dependent and subject to change of date.
There is no time limit on when they are used and I leave it up to the holder of the voucher to arrange a date. They can be purchased by posting a cheque made out to ‘ The Estuary Gallery’ or by credit or debit card by phone. Contact me for address details on 07768871875 or e-mail email@example.com.
Course Aims:- To discuss and understand the following:-
Know your camera. What all those settings on your camera are for.
- ISO, Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority and when you would use them instead of automatic setting.
- Depth of Field.
- Use of Flash and light
- Megapixals and Memory Cards
Personal tuition by Ian James on all aspects with film or Shutter priority, aperture priority and the reason for using over automatic mode digital, compact, bridge or single lens reflex camera from beginners to advanced amateurs.
The half day courses are held on the Estuary Gallery Barge in Leigh-on-Sea along the Essex coast where Ian has lived and worked as a photographer for the last 40 years. Between 1990 and 2005 Ian taught City and Guilds Photographic modules at various adult education centres in Essex and since 2010 he has run the very successful photographic workshops by passing on his wealth of knowledge gained by a lifetimes work with cameras.
The courses can be tailored to your interests to include all or some of the following. :- Architecture, Landscape/Seascape, Flora and Fauna, Family, Portrait, Documentary, Action/Sports and Close ups. Contact Ian on 07768871875 or e-mail. firstname.lastname@example.org

Thanks again for the workshop last week, it was brilliant! I learned so much and can’t wait to get out with my
camera more, armed with all the extra know-how. For anyone browsing this page, Ian is a fantastic tutor and
a very talented artist, would highly recommend one of his workshops.
Thanks again, all the best, Kelly
