After the success of our ‘The Basics’ workshop, we’re excited to announce the second workshop in our series of ‘The Next Step’ courses, aimed at building on the basics and helping you develop your photographic style. Join us with your camera and enthusiasm for another brilliant half-day workshop at the beautiful Happisburgh. Here you’ll capture a broad range of subject matter including woodland, seascapes and beautiful beach huts, taking into account composition, depth-of-field and much more. Staff photographers and The Basics workshop leaders, Dibs McCallum and Josh Brown will talk you through each step on the workshop and be there to answer all questions, big or small. It’s all about improving your confidence and developing your photography!
