This videography workshop for Beginners is fun, fresh, creative and takes an inspirational approach to learning this wonderful craft.

If you have a camera with the video function and are struggling with the settings then we will teach you how to use and understand them.

We have a practical approach to teaching photographic and technical skills and will show you how to simply navigate your way around the menu's. By the end of the day you will feel confident and know the videos you are taking are not by luck but by your judgement and skill.

Our workshops also have the luxury of several Canon cameras and lenses for you to borrow, so you may be looking to upgrade your equipment or just wish to see what another lens could do for your photography
