We won’t necessarily spend a lot time on all of the above as we will be tailoring the day to your interests and if you’re a beginner we’ll have talked you through your camera’s settings before you start shooting.

After doing our Flower Photography Course you will have the knowledge and confidence to use a professional studio. You may like to hire ours, having become familiar with the equipment. You obviously have a great interest in flowers so you will be delighted with the floral images you take away with you.

Before the course, please be sure to back-up any images on your card and recharge your batteries and bring spares if you have them. Your instruction manual could be useful. We will offer you tea and coffee throughout the day but, please bring your own packed lunch.

We can offer this flower course on any of the dates listed on our Photography courses page. We will begin at 9am and finish around 5pm. The cost for the day is £120.00.
