Customer Reviews: "This has been an eye opener, I have tried several courses before but this is by far the best. Mike has the gift of a true teacher, he made the course fun, easy to understand.... I came away with a good sound knowledge of the basics of Photoshop and can't wait for him to do the next stage course. If you are not sure of the basics this is the course for you." Important to know In the event that numbers attending are below 4, we reserve the right to cancel or reschedule the course with a minimum 24 hours notice. The practical workshops include demonstrations of many of the most popular functions of Photoshop Elements. The emphasis is on practical work to help develop and consolidate your understanding. Practical work will be based around group activities and demonstrations within the classroom. Each activity is designed to help you gain confidence in using Adobe Photoshop and how different editing tools and settings affect the final image. You’ll also receive ongoing support, via email, for 28 days after your course ends. Groups have a maximum of 6 people, ensuring that you have the fullest opportunity to make the most of your session. All sessions take place in my fully equipped studio in Garforth, Leeds.

What we're about

A fantastic opportunity for beginners in photography to work in a group in order to: - meet others with similar photographic interests - get to grips with using a DSLR camera - improve on basic photographic skills (e.g focusing, composition etc) - move from using "auto" onto priority settings - using flash and external flash - advice on purchasing equipment (e.g lenses) - learn about studio lighting/equipment Whether you're a novice or enthusiastic amateur, the group will allow you to collaborate and develop skills at all levels. Meetings will be hosted by Mike Lester, a qualified trainer and professional photographer with a proven track record in skills development. Each session will be supported by notes and/or online materials. A small charge will be made for each session and information will be provided on other training workshops available through Mike Lester Photography but there will be no obligation to attend. The aim is to hold meetings several times a month.

Where possible, fees will be kept to a minimum. the charge for each session will always be substantially lower than advertised on my website. Discounts will vary depending on the resources provided. Additional charges will be made to cover fees of outside speakers or models.
