Photography Classes for Parents

Bright Apple's Photography for parents classes are designed to be a fun introduction to photography. 

Topic we will cover include:

  • The basics like camera settings to help encourage you to experiment away from your camera's automatic mode
  • Understanding the light and how to use it to improve your photos
  • How you compose your photos and use what is around you to make a beautiful photo
  • Working with children and how to get the most out of them at all ages

I'm a very family focused person so my lesson include your own children as our subjects, so we keep things fun, informal and place a big emphasise on how to get the most out of your children (as they are all very unique)

The class lasts approx 2 hours and costs £130 weekdays or £150 Saturday mornings (you can also add your partner to your course for an extra £30).

This includes your course guide to take away with you, access to my private facebook group for course attendees where we can share tips, ask for advice and talk photos.

The classes are on a 1-2-1 basis and suitable for anyone with a child able to sit unaided. 

Please do contact me for more information on the course or fill in this short form to register your interest

Gift certificates are also available, please get in touch to order. 

 

Course Reviews:

5 Stars "As a complete novice, the course was an excellent starting point. We focused on the important aspects of lighting and composition and I feel confident to go away and practise what I have learnt today. Thank you :) I thought that the teacher was very approachable and immediately put myself and Izzy at ease which made for a very enjoyable afternoon"

5 Stars "I loved this class. Danielle was brilliant with the babies and as a result the photographs were really natural and relaxed. She managed to capture some beautiful shots of each child without the images looking staged - a real skill. She was a very gentle teacher and helped each of us to think about lighting in new ways. A very informative session which I would not hesitate to recommend to any mum - especially (like me) beginners! Thank you."

5 Stars "Amazing day, learnt how to use the camera and different settings to achieve different goals. Babies seemed to enjoy it as much as mums! Thank you"

5 Stars "Fantastic course with lots of hints and tips. I highly recommend this course."

4 Stars " A relaxed and enjoyable yet informative course, which gives a good introduction to improving taking photographs of loved ones."
