The course will make use of the fantastic photographic opportunities offered by our Central London location at the weekend. Practical workshops/demonstrations are followed by hands-on practical training; individual/group projects; short talks/group discussion, with the opportunity to view and review each other's work. Clear handouts are given during and after each session to ensure your work can continue after you've left the class.
