Who is the course for?

This full day 1-2-1 course is aimed at giving beginner or intermediate photographers all the knowledge to make big steps forward in their photography. As long as the client is local to East Devon, it is normally best to split the full day into two half days. This is at no extra cost.

Where is it held?

At the clients home (if it is within 25 miles of Honiton), and / or on location on the East Devon coast (a suitable weather day will have to be chosen).
