You love photography and would really like to take better shots on holiday or things that interest you whether it be family portraits, landscapes or the night sky.

Coinciding with the Auckland Festival of Photography we have scheduled a series of workshops aimed at beginners.

Whatever your photography interest, if you are a beginner at photography and just need that extra help to understand your camera equipment and how to make them work for you to produce better images then this is ideal for you. We will be running a number of Full Day Workshops (7 June 2014) and Half Day Workshops (14, 21 & 28 June and 5 July 2014)

About the workshop:
This will be a crash course for anyone wanting to kick start taking great photos quickly.
This is aimed at beginners who want to learn the basics of how to use their DSLR equipment, what the settings mean and when to use them.

The session is getting to know the nuts and bolts of camera operation followed in the afternoon by practical exercises to discover how to use what you have learned. This course will put you on the right track for creating great images.
