The summer holiday has now begun and a little time to rewind, work on my own photography, and then plan for the next academic year. I am teaching the Level 2 & 3 City and Guilds courses that run all year. I am also teaching courses that either progress through the year from beginners to advanced or like the Lightroom and Photoshop class repeat each term.
It should be a good year as the courses I am running I have taught many times before and so its a nice case of refining things each year and enjoying helping the students progress and learn the technical and creative side of photography.

IMAGE EDITING FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS – ADOBE LIGHTROOM & PHOTOSHOP
With Adobe offering the Photography plan subscription for Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop this course is an introduction to getting the best out of both of these programs, making use of the best aspects of the two programs, from the speed of the non-destructive image editing workflow Lightroom offers to the destructive manipulating that Photoshop offers.
This course is for non-professional and professional photographers who wish to edit and manage their photos in a fast and intuitive way. You will learn how to use Lightroom to edit and perfect your images, organise them and share them. You will also learn when to take your images to Photoshop to use the tools it has to offer.
