Our primary goal in each course is to equip you with a full understanding of the basic, but crucial manual controls of a camera. Understanding these controls will ensure that you can confidently use any camera and will allow you to undertake any style of photography in all types of situations or lighting conditions. This knowledge will equip you with the skills to deal with, for example, low light, nighttime, macro, nature, sports and many more.
We will also develop your technique in using the optimal settings on your camera and will instill a number of best practices to ensure that you can consistently produce images of the highest technical quality in any conditions.

The features and controls of a camera can at first appear quite intimidating. Experience has taught us here at Billy Currie Photography, that people who come along to our courses are pleasantly surprised at how straightforward things become once they absorb the basic principles and develop sound manual photography techniques.


Within most of our courses, post processing also features as we believe these skills and techniques are absolutely crucial in taking your photography to the next level. The tuition is very structured and you will be provided with a post processing workbook which covers all subject matter from equipment calibration, organizing/backing up your images through to the final production of your masterpiece! We aim to provide you with a sound basic skillset that you can then enhance and develop on-going throughout your photography journey.

All of our courses are strictly limited to a maximum number of 3 students. This ensures the best possible use of teaching time with each individual as people learn at different rates and will have varied levels of experience. So whether you are a complete beginner wondering where on earth to start or a seasoned photographer looking for some more advanced tuition, it doesn't make a difference.

Customer Feedback

"My first photographic course and the 3.5 day course was just about the right length. I achieved my technical objective to improve my use of my Nikon Camera (D80) and was introduced to Lightroom for the first time. Billy's attention to detail and process based approach is excellent and he was most sympathetic wrt my early stage photography talent. Excellent location with a wide variety of outstanding subjects. The cottages were well equipped throughout. Very happy with support Billy gave me throughout the course. Thanks for that. And Sheila impressed with my end product even though the taught approach was different to her initial 2 courses elsewhere. Delighted we can use both in the future. Excited with the prospect of using Lightroom. Thanks for an excellent course".

"Hi, Just wanted to say thanks for a great course especially day 2 post processing. I am more confident I will take the best picture possible in camera and then be able to make an image into something special. Very inspiring. Thanks too to Donna for her hospitality and the welcome from the rest of the family"

Other Training

Even though most of our workshops are based around general landscape photography, on many of the longer courses we often have the opportunity to participate in some other styles such as long exposure, minimalism and possibly even night photography.

Being experienced in many other styles of photography, during our holiday I am happy to offer advice and even some basic tuition in any of these. Below are a few examples...
