Summer Sessions in the East Midlands
This summer I’ll be delivering a short course for digital photographers in conjunction with Nottingham Trent University. Photography Summer Sessions runs for 5 days from 16th- 20th July and later on 13th August- 17th August and is, as the course webpage notes, ‘ideal for photographers who want to do more with their cameras and discuss photographic culture with like minds. If you know the basics of your camera but want to improve you will be enthusiastically welcomed to the course’.
Each day will consist of a morning session where we’ll look at and discuss a particular area of photography, before heading out to locations around Nottingham to produce images in a similar style. In the afternoon we’ll focus on editing, tweaking and evaluating your images. It’ll help if you know your way around Photoshop, but it’s by no means essential. While it’d be great if you could bring a DSLR to work with, if you’ve got a decent quality compact digital camera that will be more than adequate.
Throughout the week we’ll spend a day looking at:
People and the city
Street photography and the social landscape
Photography Summer Sessions will be a really good way for you to expand your portfolio, push yourself to work quickly to a brief, and generally get out into the field with a small group of like-minded people and take photographs in- here’s hoping- glorious sunshine.
You can book here on the course website. If you do so before 31st May you’ll receive a 10% discount on the course.
