The studio was finished in November, but it has taken a while to get to the stage where I am now comfortable to open the doors for training.  It was always my intention to offer courses, workshops and tours and I can, finally, announce the launch of a new website www.training.capturelight.co.uk and the first of what I hope will be many courses.  I have added a new link in the menu above to access the site.

I am putting together a structure of evening courses as well as full day sessions.  However it doesn’t end there.  I have plans for local, national and international photo tours as well.  More details of these will follow soon.

I want these training courses to be the beginning of a journey of learning.  So many times people attend a course and forget to ask a question or get back home and can’t quite remember what was said or what something meant.  Because of this I have also created a private Facebook Group for anyone who has attended one of my courses or tours.  This group, The Capturelight Camera Community is there to share experiences. post pictures for critique and ask those little questions you forgot during the session. Membership of this group does not incur any additional cost and I will regularly sign-in to provide additional advice and guidance.

I shall also update the group with any external training resources I find that will be beneficial.  Members will also get early warning of any new courses, workshops or tours and will receive discounts on further training.

My first course starts on the evening of 11th July.  Entitled The Fundamentals of Photography it is a wide ranging course that provide the essential knowledge to take your image taking to the next level.

I am really excited about this as training is something I love doing and it will be the fulfilment of one of my initial ‘dreams’ for Capturelight.

I will be adding more details and more courses over time, so please explore the new site and revisit regularly.  Additionally, if there is a particular photography related subject you would like to learn about then let me know.  I may be able to build a course that covers that subject or even provide 1-to-1 tutoring.
