Photography Courses Worcestershire
Malvern and the Malvern Hills, Worcestershire
Malvern is a great location for all kinds of photography. For photography courses Worcestershire has an amazing variety of landscapes.
We start at Photography Made Simple’s HQ in Colwall, just over the Malvern Hills on the Herefordshire side. People say that the Herefordshire view is the better one – see what you think! We have access to 40 acres of beautiful grounds for portrait work, and of course the Malvern Hills for landscape photography. We usually go to the Wyche Inn or the Malvern Hills Hotel for lunch, and other family members are welcome to join us. We start at 10am and finish at about 4:30pm.
We’ve been teaching photography on the Malvern Hills for a few years, starting when we were tutors at Worcester College of Technology and also when we taught A level photography at Malvern College.
You can’t get a more iconic English landscape than the Malvern Hills. Come and photograph the landscape that inspired Elgar’s music and Roget’s words. We are very flexible about how we teach at Malvern, so if the group wants to do church interiors, or go up onto the ridge of the Malvern Hills, or just work in the gardens, there is plenty to see. People come from all over the country for our photography courses in Worcestershire. The variety of subjects ranges from wide vista landscapes to intimate portraits in the Winter Gardens to architectural interiors at Malvern Theatres. There is even the delightful interior of Malvern Priory and the highly rated ice cream at British Camp. We often teach one-to-one photography tuition here, which gives us even more flexibility about the choice of subjects. It’s also easy to reach from Bristol and Birmingham. That’s why we’re based here!
- “When I arrived and we started I wondered why I was there as I felt like a fish out of water, “all the gear, no idea”! Thank you Phil for making me feel at ease and Rachel for the coffee.I have to say from starting at a point where I have been using the camera on automatic for holidays and family you inspired and guided me to extract myself out of the comfort zone and through uncharted territory with great success. I learnt a tremendous amount [ for me anyway ] took a couple of good photos and had a great day, I am now planning after some practice to see you again in the not too distant future. Thanks again for your infectious enthusiasm.”

- “Thank you so much for the course yesterday. It makes so much more sense when someone explains what the buttons mean and shows you what happens rather than trying to cope with the manual – which is not a man’s thing anyway as we are always being told!The idea that all photos are either portraits or landscapes, irrespective of the subject matter, makes things so much easier. Some of the tricks and techniques you showed us will soon be put into practice.Thanks once again for an interesting, educational and above all fun day. I shall certainly be coming down again for another course in the future.”
