  1. Hi there,

    I have just bought a Canon G7 X Mark III. Which course would be best for me to understand how to get the most out of the camera?

    I am technically minded and good with electronics. But very new to photography.


    1. Hi Lucas,

      Great to hear from you. We recommend that you book our Beginners Photography Course. You have an advanced compact with plenty of features and settings so it is the most suitable starting point for you.

      Our next upcoming small group workshop is Saturday 7th December. You can book directly online here, Beginners Photography Workshop There are 2 calendars on the course outline page, the first is the private calendar of availability and the second is the small group, scheduled calendar.

      We hope this information helps and look forward to receiving your booking.

      Kind Regards
      Lou Smith

  2. Hi there

    I’m looking to get my partner a gift Certificate so she can use this course for her sony cyber shot dsc hx90. I would also be interested in attending and would book along side her after I have given her the certificate, however I have a semi compact Nikon 1 j5. Would that be suitable for the same course or could you advise of an alternative that we could do together?

    Kind regards Tom

    1. Hi Tom,

      Great to hear from you.

      That is fine – go ahead and get your gift certificate for your partner.

      Gift Certificates bought now in time for Christmas are valid until 31/12/2019 so that there is over a year’s validity when the gift is opened on Christmas Day.

      The voucher can be purchased with one place for your partner or 2 places if you wish to add your name at this point to the voucher too.

      Follow this link to get your gift, Photography Gift Certificates

      We hope this helps and look forward to receiving your order.

      Kind Regards
      Lou Smith

    Is your “Compact Camera Creative Workshop” course suitable for learning how to exploit the capabilities of a Sony Cyber-shot DSC HX90V?
