Photography Courses Bristol, Avon, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire & South Wales
We visit all our venues once a month (although Sudeley Castle is closed to the public over the Winter).
Click on each picture, or the map, for more information about each location and to see the courses that are scheduled at that venue.
For our photography courses Bristol isn’t the only place we work. There are lots of fantastic places in the South West, and we try to have a good variety for our courses. From iron-age hill forts to manor houses, scenic railways and museums. We’re also happy to come to you for one to one photography training. In the area we have done more than teach photography courses Bristol Civic Society and Venue magazine have also asked us to judge their photography competitions. We have good connections with the National Trust, and have taught National Trust photography courses at Stourhead. We have undertaken corporate photography training in the area for the Avon and Somerset Probation Service, among others. We have carried out one to one photography training for Westcountry estate agents and small businesses. For our photography courses Bristol is a popular venue, and our customers come from varied backgrounds which we find makes our courses more effective. Our courses are designed to be entertaining and enjoyable, while also being informative.
- “Many thanks for the excellent day yesterday, I really did learn such alot. My camera makes alot more sense now and I feel more confident, this has certainly sparked an interest and will now practice with my new knowledge. Sometime later on in the year I will enrole in the creative workshop course.”

- “I’ve had my DSLR for almost a year now, and have struggled to get to grips with what it can do, other than in auto mode. I attended an 8 week evening class earlier in the year, but became fairly despondent with trying to tackle everything in manual mode…..too many things to think about at the same time! It’s true, too, what you say that being a good photographer doesn’t necessarily mean that you can teach photography!! I came on this course, therefore, hoping to be inspired, and to gain more confidence with my camera. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed the day, and how you fulfilled those requirements. It started off well, when I chatted to two ladies who had been on the same course earlier in the year, and who were back for different course. They couldn’t speak highly enough of their day; I was excited to begin! The teaching was clear, thorough and informative. Your humour ensured that the amount of information we had to cover didn’t become overwhelming, and his ability to relate to each of our individual needs demonstrated the strength of his teaching ability. Our forays outside to practice what we had been learning were great as you were on hand to answer our questions and give us tips. Reviewing our work back in the classroom was a good way to encourage us to think more about how, and what we were photographing, and whilst I winced at some of my shots, I began, equally, to see ways in which they could be improved. Your critique was done in a positive and encouraging way so that no-one felt discouraged. The advice given on lenses and equipment was welcome, as the market can be daunting and confusing. It was good, too, not to be encouraged to rely heavily on manipulating images on the computer, I had never felt too happy with this approach, anyway!
I am now waiting to get out there and start taking better photographs… hoping too that I might be able to go on another course one day!
I will, and have already started, recommending this course to anyone who wants to get more out of their camera!
Thank you from a grateful, newly inspired, photography student!”
