I have been a professional photographer most of my life and for several years I worked for Sony in this capacity, where I devised and carried out successful training courses for Sony, John Lewis, Harrods and Jessops.
'Bill Black is a confident, talented and accomplished photography master. His facilitation style will compliment any learner from complete beginner to professional photographer. Being able to adapt his laid back style and blend his extensive knowledge into a well rounded enjoyable session is what I most admire about Bill. If I wasn’t so far away I wouldn’t hesitate to attend. Highly recommend!'

The Beginners' Course is designed specifically for people taking their first steps in photography. Whether you want to take photos of people, landscapes or architecture, this course will explain the fundamentals of photography to you.
The course consists of weekly 2-hour sessions, 6 in the classroom, 3 outside ‘in the field’.
By the end of the course you will:
· understand your camera’s settings and how to use them;
· have learnt creative techniques to improve your photographs and find your own style;
· be able to produce final output of your images in print or online form;
Technical terms will be explained without jargon and de-mystified.
By the end of the course you have a new set of technical and creative skills.
All this is practised under supervision both in classroom and out in the field, where you actually take photos.
'Bill Black is a legend, explains well without jargon and just a pleasure to listen to and learn from.'
