What other people had to say about their online learning experience:

I found the course enjoyable, informative & mostly I loved how much it encouraged creativity. Francesca is a wonderful tutor that has encouraged & kept me inspired throughout both the beginners & Intermediate courses. Particularly under the circumstances of attending the course over zoom during lockdown. I thought Francesca found innovative ways to make the course accessible, incredibly worthwhile & enjoyable. I would highly recommend this course.Lisa, Brighton

Francesca Moore is an excellent teacher with a very calm manor and she is very encouraging. I have learnt so much from the beginners and intermediate courses, it has transformed my photography. We used Zoom for much of the course due to Covid but this did not detract from the learning and knowledge obtained. A great experience. Neil, Brighton.

This course really helped inspire me creatively, and change the way in which I look at photography and its possibilities. Francesca was extremely helpful and supportive.

Camera Guidelines

  1. Ideally, buy an SLR (digital if you want digital, film if you want film). SLRs are best if you want to really explore, or even just experiment with photography. There are non-SLR compact digital cameras nowadays that take very good quality pictures but certain key features are limited and therefore limit the photographers capacity to be more creative. Having said that many ex-students have completed the course with a compact and been very happy to continue using their compact cameras.

  2. Canon and Nikon are the safest bets. Not because they are necessarily better, but because they are the biggest companies and therefore have a much wider range of lenses, accessories and equipment on the market (this is particularly true if you are interested in exploring the second-hand market).

  3. Try some out in a shop. The most important things are whether you like it, and whether the way it works makes sense. I personally find the menu system in Canon cameras to be extremely user friendly. All the digital SLR manufacturers - Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony, Olympus, etc - make cameras that produce very good pictures and, to be honest, all have pretty similar features. Most important is whether you like how it feels in your hand, it's not too heavy or fiddly and if the menu system etc seems to make sense. So go to a shop and ask to play around with a few, and pick the one that 'feels' best (and you can afford!). If you really like the Sony, get the Sony. Photography isn't as much fun if you don't like your camera.
