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

"What a cracking few days. Firstly it was great to be in Skye no matter what the weather it always looks stunning. The course was fabulous Billy, quite simply, knows his onions and is on hand to answer any questions and give advice should you require it. He is also happy to let you get on with it if you are feeling confident which is as important in my view. The weather can be challenging but it’s not all sunrises and sunsets and this course has made me realise what you can do with a flat canvas as Billy calls it and has opened up for me a whole new range of possibilities in my pursuit of wonderfully diverse images. So would I recommend it? Absolutely it’s a fun relaxed few days with a wealth of knowledge and experience right there beside you, a great course for all abilities. Would I book again? Without hesitation; I’m hoping to return next year on another course in another part of this beautiful country. Happy Days!"

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...
