14th January 2019

Tutor Eric Pye | £126 | 10 weeks

Ideal for those with a basic knowledge of their camera who want to learn more, this course will allow you to really get to grips with the possibilities the different settings can open up for you.

What will the course or workshop cover and how will it be taught?

By the end of the course you will rarely use your camera on Program mode. You will master the various controls your camera has to offer and know when to use them in different situations to take the photographs you really want. To complement this you will also learn how to use composition techniques suited to a variety of photographic styles.

What do I need to bring with me?

You will need a digital camera, its instruction manual (a physical copy or access to a digital copy), memory card, clothes suitable for going outside and some means of making notes. A tripod may be helpful for some of the sessions, but is by no means a necessity.

Please bring a pen, notebook and your glasses, if you need them.

Are there any additional costs?

There is the option of printing of 6 images for approximately £20, payable directly to the tutor. The tutor will discuss this with students.

About the tutor
Eric is a photographer who likes to combine his love of the outdoors with a desire to produce something creative. He likes to try to convey something about the places in his images and does this with traditional landscape shots as well as more abstract ideas using camera movement and multiple exposures. As well as creating his own images, Eric now puts his years as a school teacher to good use teaching photography to groups, individuals and here at the Brewery. You can find out more about him and his work at or on Facebook as Eric Pye Photography.
