    hi there,

    i am interested in booking your beginner class and was just wondering if it is suitable for a complete novice with an DSLR camera?

    i just got my camera about 3 weeks ago so i am a total novice!!

    thank you

  2. Anne Marie says:

    Like Sharon I am a complete novice to and am wondering the same. I have a Lumix G3 which I bought about three days ago, and is my first camera apart from point and shoot on auto.

  3. Fiona says:

    Hi I am also interested in this course but am concerned that I don’t have a good enough camera.

    I have a Canon Powershot compact digital, is a DSLR required to do this course?

    I am considering upgrading but I am a complete beginner and have no idea what spec to go for. Any advice?


  4. Nic says:

    Hi I am also wondering a similar thing, but I don’t have a DSLR camera, I have no photography experience and my camera is a Fuji Finepix S1600 but I am hoping to learn more and possibly progress to a DSLR, just wondering if the course is suitable for me?

  5. janette says:


    I am like Sharon. Just away to buy my first Dslr and would love the opportunity to be shown how to use it properly but concerned in case this class would be for people who are more familar with their cameras.

    I love photography and have a compact at the moment but thinking about pursuing it as more of a p/t career.


  6. David says:

    Hi Sharon,

    Yes the class is fine for a total beginner. I will quickly and practically show you how to use the settings on the camera for the first hour and then we discuss how to go out and actually shoot photos! Then in the second half of the day you get the chance to use this when shooting the model outdoors and in the studio. All you need is a passion for photography and you will be amazed at how quickly everything starts to flow.

  7. David says:

    Hi Anne Marie,

    My first ever camera was a Lumix, great versatility! As I said to Sharon, the class begins for the total novice and works towards practically trying what you learn on a model both outdoors and in a studio environment.

  8. David says:

    Hiya Fiona,

    Firstly canon is always a good choice! DSLR or SLR are better for the course. You can use a compact but there will be elements of the day which won’t apply to you. Like choosing different lenses for example. However, most of the settings tution is still relevant to compacts and when you upgrade you will be glad of the knowledge. The second half of the day would be fine for you also as the compact is totally fine for the outdoor session with the model. When it comes to the studio however, you will be a bit limited to the type of lighting you can use but you will still be able to get a nice portrait.

    Advice on DSLR’s? I used a Canon 400D for about 3 years and they are great! although for a slight upgrade in price the new 600D or 60D are both excellent. Panasonic Lumix cameras are also great as they try to focus on simple opperation so combine a lot of features into simple buttons for easy use. My first DSLR was a panasonic and they are great beginner cameras.

  9. David says:

    Hiya Nic,

    Yes I think your Fuji would be fine for using on the course. The settings we go over in the first hour of the theory and then you get the chance to try it out shooting a model for the last 2 hours of the day.

  10. David says:

    Hi Janette,

    The class is PERFECT for you! The first hour goes over camera settings and how to use them. So this would help you feel a bit more comfortable with your camera. The second hour details how to go out and take photos, promote and show them off and how to network. Key skills if you are thinking about possibly trying to make money from photography. The last 2 hours give you a chance to shoot with an actual model both outdoors and in a studio, giving you the chance to not only try out the business and see what and where we work but also to possibly start your portfolio off with a professional model in your book right away.

  11. William says:

    Hi David, I am looking to get a dslr and I was looking at the nikon d3100 but had no luck as far getting one, im looking to get the basics right as I do quite a bit of photoshop and lightroom too, so I was wondering would this be good for me to learn for when I do get my camera that I want and will my nikon coolpix L120 be suitable for your course.



  12. Joanne says:

    Hi David I had the same questions as everyone else my camera is a Limix g2
    Iam looking to take up photography and gain skills to maybe eventually have my own buisness one day.
    Was originally worried about my g2 as everyone seems to have canon!!
    I have purchased your groupon offer.. And was wondering will there be any more courses available to progress!
    Iam a beginner but am keen and passionate about photography!

  13. David says:

    Hiya Joanne,

    I had a Panasonic for about 2 years and then moved to Canon. While I love the simple features of the Panasonics the Canon/Nikon family are just unbeaten on image quality. Don’t worry if you are just starting though, as you will hear on the course it’s more about what you do with what you have!

    There are going to be more extensive workshops coming up, probably starting around Christmas. These will go into specialist area’s of photography and depending on requests I may do a sort of step up general class like this but a bit more in depth. Whatever happens, because you have the Groupon offer you get 50% off future bookings!

  14. David says:

    Hiya William,

    The coolpix L120 will be fine yes as it comes with all of the settings and features we will be talking about. As you mentioned the course covers camera basics as well as practical things like showing off your photos and actually getting out and doing things. I think if you have the photoshop/lightroom skills behind you this would be an excellent compliment to rounding off your knowledge.

  15. sharon says:

    hi david thank your for your reply!

    i have now bought my voucher and will be booking my place on the class :)) looking forward to you showing me how to use my NIKON D3000 as just now im really using it as a point n shoot lol

  18. Karen says:


    I have bought your deal on Groupon! Was wondering if you discussed editing images at all?

    Thank you!


  19. David says:

    Hi Karen,

    I won’t be discussing how to edit images at all I am afraid. That is for another class I think! =)

    This one is purely how to use your camera and go out and take photos.

  20. Anne Marie says:

    Whooo Hoooo all booked up and can’t wait to learn how to use my new camera.

    I’ve been trying to book a place on the Jan 21st 3pm course. Not sure if there’s still a spot available.

  24. David says:

    Hiya Joe,

    I sent you a wee email about half an hour ago about it.



  25. Drew Wilson says:

    Hello David.
    I recently sent an E:mail to enquire about the availability of a course slot on 19th Feb.
    Could you let me know if this is available.


  26. David says:

    Hiya Drew,

    I have never received any email I am afraid, only this comment and one before on the 16th. Sadly the class on Feb 19th is full. If you would like to choose another date then email me your Groupon number and Security code I will get you booked in.



  27. Drew Wilson says:
